Lovely place to stay whilst exploring the Ribble Valley. Great walks and things to do with the family over the Easter break - well appointed rooms and helpful staff. Great food, great atmosphere, great price!

Lovely ambient interior and friendly service meets you on arrival. Dining with a group, everyone's food was excellent. The only quibble was a very undercooked steak but the chef rectified the mistake swiftly and the manager reduced the bill slightly to compensate.

My partner, I and another couple dined here mid week. The service was excellent and the food was brilliant. My friend is also a vegetarian and they catered for him fantastically well. All round great pub dining experience well worth a visit.

Good breakfast & warm welcome from staff. As it says above, nicely decorated, large hotel room with fab bathroom featuring a rolltop bath, his & hers double sinks and large double shower, but the cheap mattress and subsequently poor sleep let it down.

The room we stayed in was lovely, spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The food in the pub was brilliant, and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately the room we stayed in was above the bar and you could hear the noise from the bar as if it was people in your living room at home. It was...

The White bull, lovely location in the heart of the Ribble Valley. This pub/restaurant serves the local community and guests. What is not to like? Sunday lunch (pre-booked table). No attention to detail at all. The manager seems to work hard but not so smart. The serving staff where there but not in! Our order taken and delivered wrongly. The...

My wife and I went one lunchtime, and had a fabulous meal. The sea bream was cooked to perfection. We could not fault it. Although the starter could have fed an army. The manager was very pleasant and attentive. A very pleasant place. We will be going back !

Just enjoyed a lovely meal at the White Bull. The food was delicious , the service was spot on and the hotel was modern and nicely done out. We both had a Sunday roast, me pork and my husband beef and it could not have been better. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.
