Chef Nigel Haworth's Ribble Valley Inns is to open their first pub outside Lancashire.

The Bull at Broughton, North Yorkshire, is part of the Broughton estate and the fourth site for the company.

It will open in June following a £300,000 refurbishment. The pub is owned by the Broughton Hall Estate and Ribble Valley Inns has taken a 15 year lease with them.

The company's menu philosophy is to offer traditional traditional dishes with a contemporary twist, featuring ingredients from local food heroes.

Haworth founded Ribble Valley Inns four years ago with Craig Bancroft. The pair are also co-proprietors of the Michelin-starred Northcote Manor.

Other pub sites include the Three Fishes at Mitton, the Highwayman near Kirkby Lonsdale and the Clog & Billycock, Pleasington, which opened in September 2008 following a £1.3m refit.

Haworth said: "So many of the North's talented produces 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.

"There are wonderful ingredients and I can't wait to start developing dishes with the head chef and kitchen brigade."

Haworth and Bancroft have plans for more sites. A spokeswoman said: "We will ensure we open each one successfully and make sure we maintain standards and quality at each Ribble Valley Inn consistently, it will be a small group of unique quality properties offering regional food."
