About us

About Us.....
The Running Pump Inn has been serving beer since the 1600s, becoming a formal hostelry in the 1800s. The pub offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with antique furnishings, original wood & tiled floors, wood burners to cosy up to in the winter months and a beer garden offering heart lifting views across the Lancashire hills. We are also dog friendly.

The Pump offers a great selection of  fine ales and wines & a menu of contemporary seasonal dishes as well as the traditional pub classics.  Our creative chefs seek to delight both the eye and the palate and are continually trying new flavor combinations to provide our customers with an all round, great food experience. 
Both the classic & contemporary seasonal menus offer vegetarian dishes & provided we know in advance we can cater for gluten free & other allergy related requirements.



The Running Pump is a dog friendly pub and we warmly welcome your furry friends. If you are not a dog-lover, fear not, we have a separate dining room where you can request to be seated.

We recommend reserving a table for our Curry Nights (Thursdays) along with Friday and Saturday evenings.

We look forward to seeing you...
