Welcome to Freemasons at Wiswell

It has been a truly landmark year for us at Freemasons as not only did we turn five years old but we are also the number one pub in the 2015 Good Food Guide. The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants listed us for the second year in a row, and we also proved to be the best value on the list! We have retained our place in this year’s Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide and have also been selected as one of the Inspectors’ favourites, highlighting it as an establishment worthy of additional consideration. Then we recently picked up the Lancashire Tourism Award which recognises the Freemasons teams commitment to excellence.

We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support, without you we wouldn’t be here! So our Celebration Menu will stay until the end of November, top quality cuisine at a price that everyone can enjoy, if you have not sampled it yet, come in before the Christmas rush!

3 courses £15.00

Celebration Menu: Served lunch
through early supper until the end of November 2014.

For reservations, please call us on 01254 822218 or book online.

We are serving up some beautiful seasonal produce on the Christmas menus such as our renowned Goosnargh Turkey with all the trimmings, come and join in the festivities with our Christmas Seasonal Menu, Christmas Eve Lunch or Christmas Eve A La Carte Dinner. We have just a few remaining tables for the Christmas Day Lunch so call us soon if you want to join us.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
Chef-patron, Steven Smith

PS. Don’t forget we’re now open 5 days a week, from Wednesday to Sunday, closing on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Freemasons is now recruiting!

We have various positions available at our busy and exciting pub, restaurant manager, sous chef and floor and kitchen 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”).
