About The Highway Man
Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:
New and adventurous British food at Nigel Haworth’s original gastro pub
When the Highwayman opened in 2007, co-founder and Michelin-starred chef Nigel Haworth pioneered a new style of cooking at the second of his Ribble Valley Inns. Using producers from Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire, the Highwayman continues to thrive following a 200k investment and re-design on 2014 - and the appointment of head chef, Jason “Bruno” Birkbeck. The Cumbrian cook was behind Hipping Hall’s three AA Rosettes just up the road in Kirkby Lonsdale, and his CV includes the Michelin-starred Samling and The Torridon. Explore elegant, rustic dishes like duck liver parfait and shrimp porridge followed by braised shoulder of Kitriddings lamb with an oatcake crust, crushed peas and potato dressing. The signature ‘Pig’s Head’ with crispy black pudding, mash, cabbage and pickled apples takes the place of more familiar hot pots and pies on the new menu. But fans will still find plenty of Highwayman classics (battered haddock, platters and so on) to enjoy. Décor by Lister Carter sees wagon wheels draped with filament bulbs and renovated vintage grates as well as big, new bar. All the better to showcase the Lancastrian real ales and a Spanish-leaning wine list. There’s a comfortable outdoor terrace too, complete with stone flagging and traditional grates.
