About Us

Local, regional & classic British dishes, cask ales, quality wines & ensuite-accommodation

Modern, comfortable, beautiful and practical inns

We set out to build a collection of beautiful Inns that we could be very proud of. The idea was to create our perfect local in every Inn. They had to be different to the run of the mill big company theme pubs, yet accessible to all, friendly and tasteful.

For us it is important that each Inn has a unique design, a mix of modern, comfortable, beautiful and practical antique furniture. Each Inn must have open fires to welcome you on a chilly day and when the sun makes an appearance, our gardens and outside spaces are somewhere beautiful to be. The offerings need to reflect our company values along with promoting local provenance in décor and menus. Local, regional and classic British dishes, a great selection of cask ales, quality wines lists, extensive drinks lists and of course a large selection of gins.

Each location is in or very near areas of outstanding natural beauty, taking advantage of our locations to set off for breath-taking walks, scenic strolls or just soaking up the sights sitting and sipping something special. We have a real passion for our beautiful Country and have taken a long time to find these individual Inns within different Counties. We hope to bring you a real flavour of Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire.

Our aim is simple, find us, enjoy our hospitality and visit us again soon.
