we stayed for one night Friday 4th June arriving in the morning to meet our friends that that had stayed the previous evening and also staying Friday. We have stayed on numerous occasions in the past and taken local walks as we did on this particular visit. It was quite obvious that there were staffing issues, the waiting on staff seemed very young and inexperienced and at times confused, this is not a criticism, at all times we found them very polite and trying their very best. We had a couple of issues at Dinner and again this was all down to experience and hotel Manager Megan was exceptional in dealing with these, she was extremely professional and attentive. Breakfast on Saturday was exceptional and all staff on point. Room was fine and location is excellent,Really enjoyed our stay again and looking forward to the next visit

We were disappointed with this hotel given the £135 per night price tag. For the price we were expecting a bit of luxury but our room was small and shabby and not at all what we were expecting. The shower was over the bath and took ages to get warm. The wardrobe was a creaking old thing with ill fitting doors. We were in the area to attend a wedding and despite being told that we could have a late checkout at no extra charge, we had to pay an additional £25 per room when we checked out. The meals there were OK - just pub grub but OK. I would not recommend this hotel.

Visited for lunch today with friends . Very chilly and a bit drizzly after the glorious weather that we’d had recently. Now I accept the Shireburn can’t be held responsible for the weather but they have no provision whatsoever for inclement conditions! No roof covering over the patio or patio heaters. Asked for a blanket - said they weren’t allowed to give them out. Obviously only geared up for fair weather dining! Food was average- overpriced and a limited menu. Service average. Won’t be dashing back.

We were travelling home to the Wirral after staying in a Woodmans hut in the Lakes and decided to make a detour and came across the Shireburn Inn at Hurst Green near Clitheroe. It was fairly busy but we got a table on the terrace. When ordering our drinks, I asked if I could have a tiny taste of the Chenin Blanc and was bluntly told “ yes, but you will have to pay for it”. !!! I couldn’t believe it. So, I ordered a glass regardless. Our prawn sandwich was very poor as the bread wasn’t very fresh and the prawns were not very ample or good taste or quality. The Cajun chicken one was better and the chunky chips were very nice. Then we got our bill and I was shocked to see the bottle of Moretti was £4.70!!!! and then they overcharged by almost £2 for my glass of wine so I asked for a refund and got it. Not impressed. We have all lost so much during this pandemic but ripping off your customers does not encourage them to return. A very mediocre lunch after fabulous three days of glorious food in the lakes. We won’t be back.

We booked and came here on Saturday lunchtime for a meal and drinks. The pub is a short walk from the excellent Wigwam glamping pods run by Martyn and Jane, where we were staying for the weekend. I wasn't sure what to expect with the covid restrictions and it being the first weekend of being able to visit outdoors. However, it was fantastic from start to finish. The Manager, Megan, promptly confirmed our booking and all the staff were very attentive and friendly. It was very busy but this did not lower the service and quality of food. We enjoyed it that much we booked to come back on the Sunday. Well done guys. We hope to see you again soon. Cheers Matt
