At the Cartford Inn, we offer a brand of hospitality that is truly unique, hallmarked by an award-winning restaurant, boutique hotel, delicatessen and art gallery. Our location is enviable, with guests able to enjoy panoramic views of the Ribble Valley and Fylde countryside whilst dining. Our décor is quirky and eclectic, in keeping with our building’s 17th century heritage, but with a modernist twist.

Of course the main attraction is our 2-Rosette winning, Michelin recommended restaurant. Run by head chef Chris Bury, we offer the finest quality food without the fuss, in an atmosphere that is warm and unpretentious. Expect a discernible French influence, evidenced by our renowned French onion soup – a dish that is well worth a visit in its own right.

We look forward to welcoming you!

    The food was good although a tad overpriced in our group's opinion. Despite having a table booked we had to ask to be seated once the reservation time had come and gone. We also had to ask for the orders to be taken after waiting quite a while. I know it was busy but I did expect better.

    Ok, so it's a tiny bit on the pricey side if you're looking for a bite to eat with the family on an whim, but this isn't really the sort of place for that. You get that at the Eagle at Weeton. This is the sort of place you go for a special occasion, a date, an anniversary, a birthday. The service is excellent, the atmosphere relaxed, the food excellent and the overall experience is worth the bit extra you pay. Cant wait to go back....
