About the location


Blackburn 7 miles; Clitheroe 9 miles; Preston 11 miles.

The village of Ribchester is encircled by green hills and lies in a curve of the River Ribble mid way between Preston and Clitheroe. It is a pleasant jumble of multi-coloured stone cottages in long twisting terraces. It has three pubs, the White Bull, dated 1707, the Black Bull and the Ribchester Arms and the award-winning Chinese restaurant Yu and You Restaurant and Bar [see below for a list of places to eat in Rib. You might want to say that Rib had numerous places to eat including the three pubs… etc etc]. The White Bull has a porch canopy supported by four columns said to be from the Roman ruins. The village takes its name from the River Ribble and the fort of Bremetennacum (the walled town by the Ribble) the remains of which can still be seen together with the bath house and numerous artefacts housed in the Roman Museum. For this reason, Ribchester has been seen to have a purely Roman foundation, but excavations in 1977 showed that settlements going back to the middle Bronze Age existed in the area. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Ribble Valley is a rural haven of spectacular scenery, diverse natural habitats and historical legend, a place of almost incomparable peace, where adults and children alike can enjoy the simple pleasures of the outdoors without the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Longridge is easily reached, a unique town with plenty of interesting shops and tempting eateries, described as 'big on character' by the Sunday Times and ranked in their '101 Best Places To Live In Britain'. Nearby Clitheroe is famed for its specialist shops of all types, including, amongst others, a sausage shop that sells over seventy-five different varieties! A gourmet's paradise, with award-winning restaurants and country hotels situated throughout the valley, and annual events including a number of agricultural shows and day festivals of all types, this fantastic location has plenty to offer at any time of year!

Places to eat in Rib.

The Glass House Cafe. Situated in Stydd gardens, about a 400 yard walk, this is a picturesque setting for a light meal. I especially like it in late summer when the bunches of grapes are hanging from the vines overhead. You can pick them while you eat. On a sunny day, no matter how cold it is outside, you feel like you are Italy rather than Lancashire! It gets busy so best to reserve a table.

The Shed. Also at Stydd Gardens the Shed offers a good selection of wines, great cakes, as well as local cheeses.

Always Cake. Also situated at Stydd Gardens, Always Cake consistently gets good reviews on Trip Advisor. Well worth a visit.

The White Bull. About 200 yards away the White Bull offers Traditional pub fare and a great atmosphere.

The Ribchester Arms. Also about 300 yards away is the Ribchester Arms. As well as indoor seating you can also sit outside at the front or in the back garden next to the river.

Potter’s Barn Cafe, about 150 yards away opposite the playing fields, offers award winning healthy homemade food as well as a selection of Ales. There is a choice of garden seating on a nice day or an open fire for the rest of the time. Potter’s Barn cafe offers events such as pottery painting or their Prosecco evenings. For up to date info see their facebook events page.

The Black Bull offers pub grub, outside seating and check out for the Quiz nights and live music. It is about 50 yards from the house.

Ribchester Working Men’s Club. Less than 50 yards away, offers a place to sit and enjoy a drink as well as live sports on a big screen TV.

Ribchester Tastebuds is a small family run cafe about 100 yards away offering a selection of light meals, sandwiches and cakes.
