The Dog Inn at Belthorn

Welcome to Lancashire’s first Community owned freehouse.  The Dog Inn is at the heart of Belthorn village which is one of the highest in Lancashire - rising to 300m above sea level. This gives us a unique and stunning countryside view, on a clear day the pub is a great vantage point from which you can see 3 great Lancashire towers; Darwen’s Jubilee Tower, Hoghton Tower and in the distance Blackpool Tower.

 

We are fortunate to be on a myriad of public footpaths which criss-cross through surrounding countryside and the nearby moorlands. The pub and restaurant are both recently refurbished with amazing views, and offer a wide and varying range of real ales from Three B’s brewery in Tockholes and Blackedge Brewery in Horwich, lagers, beers and ciders as well as fresh coffees and specialty teas. 

 

Our aim is to enhance our offering by serving snacks and light bites such as toasted crumpets, fruit toast, cakes in the coffee shop as well as offering a full menu of excellent quality traditional country pub food such as Sharing Platters, Fleetwood Beer Battered Haddock, Gourmet Burgers all in a relaxed and informal environment. Free WIFI and device charging points are available for all customers.

 

We also hold “Craft Giggles” sessions, every Tuesday afternoon, from 1pm, in the Community Room upstairs. If you don’t do any crafts, you are still more than welcome to go along for a chat. Every Tuesday evening is the darts and dominoes night, and on Wednesday evening the bridge club meet in the bar. Thursday evenings we host our extremely popular quiz night, and we also have regular live music sessions.
