Freemasons is now recruiting!

We have various positions available at our busy and exciting pub including a sommelier and floor staff. If you want to become an important and integral member of an established award winning team please get in touch we would love to hear from you. See our recruitment page for further details.



It “represents itself as a country pub, yet the main competition is with nearby Northcote Manor!”; this “cosy, multi-roomed old inn”, in an attractive Ribble Vally hamlet, remains rather under the radar - despite Steven Smith’s extremely “classy” cooking (“it should have a Michelin star”).
