The Freemasons at Wiswell has continued to live up to its impressive reputation, being crowned number one in the Waitrose Good Food Guide’s Top 50 Pubs for the second year in a row.
The Ribble Valley’s most sought after destination for food and drink also ranked 42nd in the Guide’s Top 50 Restaurants and is the first and only pub in Great Britain awarded a coveted 7/10 in the history of the Good Food Guide.
The Good Food Guide is the UK’s bestselling restaurant guide. Reviewing and writing about restaurants, pubs and cafés since 1951, the Guide brings together the best places to eat out around the country.
This is the latest in a long line of accolades achieved by patron Steven Smith and his team, including being named Best Tourism Pub in this year's Visit England awards, as well as three rosettes in The AA Awards and top 50 in The Budweiser Budwar Gastropub Awards to name but a few.
Steven Smith said; “Words can’t explain how honoured we are to be voted the best pub for the second year in a row. We’re a small pub in the Ribble Valley that just wants to offer its customers a gastronomic experience second to none - we believe that this achievement proves that we do this, and are continuing to do so. Our ambition is to be the best, and to stay the best, and so far, that’s what we’re doing. We’re seeing customers travel from afar to visit us and there’s no greater feeling than knowing you’ve made their visit worthwhile.”
After an agonising wait, Steven and the Team at The Freemasons Wiswell can’t wait to welcome you back to enjoy once again the finest that Lancashire has to offer.
From July 24th, we’ll be opening our doors once again. In the meantime, we’ll be making sure all of the necessary measures are put in place to ensure we can operate safely for customers and staff members alike.
You can now book online for both the restaurant and our beautiful rooms. Why not take advantage of one of our mid-week or gourmet packages and celebrate the start of Summer in style?
