Ribble Valley Inns, the pub operation headed by leading chef Nigel Haworth, is to open its fourth pub.

The conversion of the Bull at Broughton to Haworth's local food pub concept marks an important move for the business - the new operation is Ribble Valley's first venture outside Lancashire, located across the border in North Yorkshire.

The pub is already a local landmark, and is located on the Broughton Hall estate, set in some of Yorkshire's most scenic countryside. It is scheduled to reopen under Ribble Valley in June after a £300,000 refurb..

Haworth said: "So many of the North's most talented producers are only a stone's throw from Broughton Hall, including many of Yorkshire's legendary cheesemakers.

"I'm already talking to as many producers as I can - people like Pasture Lane asparagus, Pickering's watercress, Makin's strawberries and Fortune's kippers. These are wonderful ingredients and I can't wait to start developing dishes with the head chef and kitchen brigade."

The Ribble Valley Inns business expanded from Northcote Manior, the Michelin starred restaurant and hotel run by Haworth and his partner Craig Bancroft.

Their first pub was the Three Fishes at Mitton, opened four years ago, followed by the Highwayman near Kirkby Lonsdale and the Clog & Billycock at Pleasington.
