Add The Gibbon Bridge Hotel to your Itinerary

The Gibbon Bridge Hotel
The Restaurant at Gibbon Bridge is the perfect setting for a delicious lunch or dinner. Overlooking the award winning gardens and the beautiful rolling fells of the Forest of Bowland this privately owned hotel is a dining destination. Suitable for celebrating a special occasion it is also just as great for a midweek lunch, high tea or evening meal.

The new lunch menu is suitable for everyone whether a lighter bite or a more formal three course lunch is required.

Everything is cooked to order and locally sourced – if not from the kitchen garden, then from local producers and suppliers. The onsite bakery bakes a daily selection of fresh breads, confectionary, jams, ice cream and desserts and provides full afternoon tea on a Wednesday for anyone wanting a special treat.

High Tea is served between 17.00-18.00pm during the summer (Sunday to Thursday) and offers a simple traditional menu accompanied by pots of tea; bread and butter; home cut chips and peas.

In the evening relax in the lounge in front of the log fire, or on the terrace with a pre-dinner drink whilst watching the sun go down. Take time to choose from the tempting a la carte menu before being shown to your table for a delicious dinner cooked especially for you.

The hotel also offers a unique Alfresco dining experience for small groups as well as private dining.

Once you have discovered this hidden gem you will find yourselves returning again and again!

    Christmas is a magical time and one to be spent with friends - where better than Gibbon Bridge?

     

    Whether you are dining a la carte, attending one of our festive events or joining us for lunch you will be guaranteed superb food, fine wines and a warm welcome from the team.  

     

    We have menus to suit all occasions.  Our Christmas Midweek lunch (commencing 1st December) at £19.50 for two courses or £23.50 for three courses, and Sunday Lunch at £28 for three courses & two courses at £24, plus coffee and mince pies at £3.25 -  are all excellent value!

     

    Lunch times at anytime of the year are busy at Gibbon Bridge but during December they can be even busier so we do recommend that you book.  Even a call in the morning of the day you want to lunch can avoid disappointment and a wasted journey!
