Springtime Treat

Located in the heart of the Forest of Bowland, Gibbon Bridge is a relaxed rural haven with fabulous food and a tempting new spring menu

The idyllic retreat that is the Gibbon Bridge has a tranquil, laid-back vibe that invites visitors to drop in, enjoy a glass of fizz and nibbles in the cosy bar or a sandwich or sharing board on the terrace overlooking the beautiful grounds.

With amazing gardens as the backdrop, this delightful hotel and restaurant has launched a menu to celebrate the arrival of spring and all the wonderful, fresh local produce that goes with it. So, get set to enjoy some classic favourites, small plates to savour with drinks and dishes that feature produce from the hotel’s market garden.

The Gibbon Bridge is all about delicious food and wonderful, friendly service and with a plot to plate ethos, head chef Gary Buxton is spoilt for choice when it comes to super-fresh local produce.

The on-site bakery remains an integral part of the hotel and its innovative menus, making all the bread, pastries and mouth-watering desserts including ice-cream, jams and chutneys.

The menus are constantly reviewed in order to keep things vibrant and interesting and the spring menu is no exception.

On the great-value Afternoon Menu visitors can arrive at any time and enjoy nibbles including sticky chipolatas with a honey and oregano glaze and crisp haddock goujons, there are meat and seafood sharing boards and a selection of sandwiches too.

Main courses at Gibbon Bridge include their legendary duck along with other local meat and tasty fish dishes and desserts on the menu are to die for! They include lemon meringue roulade with lemon meringue ice-cream, warm sunken chocolate cake and if you fancy something savoury a local Lancashire cheeseboard.

While favourite classics remain, the spring line-up sees a new approach, so whether you’re dining inside or out in one of the hidden, tucked-away spots in the garden, this is a relaxed dining experience with no rush to leave.

With forthcoming events planned, check the Gibbon Bridge website where you will find more details and special offers to stay.

And, as one of the region’s most prestigious wedding venues, Gibbon Bridge also offers bespoke packages – the team will be delighted to give you a tour of the hotel and grounds.
