The Red Pump Inn

Set amidst the outstanding natural beauty of the Forest of Bowland is a picturesque country inn at the heart of the tiny village of Bashall Eaves which while offering luxury B&B has established a fine reputation for the quality of its steak restaurant.

With an elegantly rural interior, The Red Pump Inn has been restored to its former glory by Frances & Jonathan Gledhill. New life and character has been injected by the bucket load, thanks to heritage colours, flag floors, oak beams, crackling open fires and warming wood burners. 

This luxury B&B now combines the charm and character of a traditional inn yet with a casual elegance thanks to the Fran's design which extends through to the 8 boutique style bedrooms complete with French antique beds, “fluffy slipper” comfort mattresses and powerful wet room showers. 

“We run and live in the inn ourselves” explains Fran, originally from County Kildare in Ireland, “and care passionately about providing a genuine, warm heartfelt welcome into our home for guests. We are motivated by the love for what we do and the quality of the product we provide”.

This approach is borne out by Jonathan, who in an earlier life ran a steak restaurant in Scarborough. His enduring passion for steak has led him to seek out the region’s best butchers.

“We are proud to be able to offer meat of such high eating quality” says Jonathan explaining that the different steak cuts on the menu are sourced only from grass fed, slow maturing Longhorn, Shorthorn and Galloway cattle, dry aged to around 40 days and chargrilled to each customer’s preference producing a wonderful combination of flavour and tenderness. 

Influenced by their love of provincial cuisine Fran and Jonathan's ethos is fabulous but simple food, uncomplicated while incredibly tasty. Along with the steaks there are a variety of chicken, lamb and fresh fish dishes which reflect a seasonal and local provenance menu.

With origins dating back to 1756 the inn enjoys stunning views across the Ribble Valley to the legendary Pendle Hill and Longridge Fell as it sits on the historic Clitheroe to Lancaster route just 2 miles north of Clitheroe and along which, according to records, the famous Pendle witches were carried to trial in Lancaster. A perfect destination for locals popping in for a bite to eat, walkers, overnight guests enjoying a short break and for visiting corporate clients from Clitheroe, Blackburn and Burnley

Recommended by Sawday's Secret Places and the Good Pub Guide, it’s the perfect place for a night away in the heart of the Lancashire countryside.
