Email this pub As with all Ribble Valley Inns, The Highwayman at Carnforth is a wonderfully relaxing environment. Craggy stone floors, warm solid wood furniture, crackling log fires in winter, fabulous walled gardens to lounge in for summer alfresco dining. The service is everything you would expect...friendly and very knowledgeable. Celebrating their 200th year, Thwaites’ line-up of cask ales, ciders and guest beers is seriously impressive. The extensive list of fine wines has been chosen by Northcote Manor’s Craig Bancroft. And as for the food…you’re in for a treat. The menu at this English Country Pub Restaurant is inspired by Nigel Haworth, Chef Patron of Northcote Manor. It's a magnificent tribute to the traditional specialities of the area...but with a delightfully contemporary twist.

Welcome to The Highwayman. Real hospitality.
And a real taste of local life.
