The Golden Ball of Longton

Dine under the ‘Teepee’ at the Golden Ball of Longton, with heaters and blankets on hand, you'll be cosy even when the sun goes down. The team even have dog beds available - there is a reason why they won our most recent Dog Friendly Business of the Year award!


The Golden Ball of Longton is dedicated to providing fresh, no fuss dining with a warm and friendly welcome and is putting West Lancashire on the map. Proud to be at the heart of 'The Salad Bowl of England' you will find locally sourced produce throughout the menu.

The pub has undergone a dramatic refurb and now serves great British food and a wide selection of gins and cask ales since Chris Buckley took over in August 2017. 

Throughout winter there is a real log fire and for summer a big terrace.

Enjoy a walk around the Brickcroft Nature Reserve or along the Ribble Way before heading back to this dog friendly pub.
