A great escape

The Holly is a quality local pub, and an accessible countryside escape with a fresh, welcoming interior and a creative attitude to sourcing and cooking.

Nestled in rolling countryside and surrounded by the Forest of Bowland and Northwest Coast - the gateway to the Lake District we’re uniquely placed to indulge our passion for local produce, and for traditional dishes.

An easy journey

The Holly is already a favourite amongst locals to our peaceful villages just off the A6. But we’re also no distance from Lancaster City, Preston and the M6 motorway, offering an easy escape from the rush. Just enjoy the countryside and wind down over a delicious meal.

Follow the A6 south from Lancaster, north from Preston. If you are coming from further afield we are 5 minutes from junction 33 of the M6, following signs to Forton. There are stunning walks nearby and we have plenty of parking right outside the door.
