Lancashire Telegraph review by Kate Turner from January 8, 2011.
THE Pendle village of Barley might be best known as the starting point for the walkers to tackle Pendle Hill.
But the village also has another gem in the form of The Pendle Inn nestled at the base of the hill.
The country pub has just what you might hope for — roaring fires, home-cooked food and local real ales.
On a Sunday lunchtime the inn was expectedly busy with families and ramblers with dogs, which were also welcome.
The pub is split into two parts, the bar food area and the restaurant.
We sat in the bar area, which has a welcoming atmosphere but was on the crowded side.
The menu is extensive with all the usual ‘pub meals’ like fish and chips, steak and ale pie, bangers and mash and a range of sandwiches and jacket potatoes.
I opted for the Cajun chicken sandwich with a portion of chips while my partner had fish and chips and mushy peas.
My two-year-old had chicken nuggets, chips and peas from the children’s menu.
I was impressed that the chicken on my sandwich had been carved and the portion size was large, but the Cajun sauce was sparse and lacking vital spice.
My partner said the batter on his fish was crispy, the fish inside was cooked to perfection.
And my two-year-old, the fussiest critic of all, ate nearly everything on his plate.
The staff were friendly and the service was prompt, while in total all meals and drinks came to a reasonable £26.
