Ribby Hall Village in Lancashire improves its restaurant offering with the launch of three new eateries; The Restaurant, Papa John’s and The Cafe-Bar. The eateries enhance the 5 star rating of the award-winning self catering holiday village and provide guests with more choice on their holidays.
On the 1st July 2010 Ribby Hall Village opened Papa John’s. The world’s third largest pizza company has nearly 140 stores across the UK and has won the Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association’s Pizza Delivery Chain of the Year Award in four of the last six years. This is a rather special Papa John’s Pizzeria as it feels more like a restaurant than a takeaway outlet. There is a stylish seating area, a salad bar, and alcohol is served. It is already proving to be a huge hit with guests.
The Restaurant at Ribby Hall Village is a new fine dining venture and will offer guests to the Village modern British food, excellent service in a relaxed and informal environment. Headed up by Chef, Andrew Birch who has gained his knowledge through the kitchens of numerous AA Rosette and Michelin-Starred restaurants including Whatley Manor (4 AA Rosettes & 2 Michelin Stars), St Martins Hotel, Isles of Scilly (3 AA Rosettes, 1 Michelin Star) and for celebrity chefs Chris & James Tanner at Tanners Restaurant (2 AA Rosettes).
The Café-Bar offers guests fresh, well-presented and seasonal café bar favourites such as Salmon Fishcakes, Eggs Benedict and Salads and includes a children’s menu with regular offers. The new lunch and evening menus are devised by new Head Chef, Jamie Green, along with consultant Michael Noonan. Michael Noonan was Head Chef at Paul Heathcote’s 3 AA Rosette Longridge Restaurant for many years before becoming Group Head Chef overseeing all of Heathcote’s restaurants. Michael will be launching the new restaurant at the multi-million pound Hotel & Spa development at Ribby Hall Village in Spring 2011 as well as overseeing all eateries on the Village.

Ribby Hall Village is taking part in the Green Tourism Business Scheme in order to judge the impact of the environmental improvements it has made so far and discover what needs to be done in the future.
Ribby Hall Village takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously and has made big improvements over the years by reducing the amount of energy used across the Village and increasing their recycling facilities so that less waste is sent to landfill sites. The Green Tourism Business Scheme will help the Village to look at every part of the business and see what it’s doing well and where it could do better. Businesses that are part of Green Tourism are assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a rigorous set of criteria covering a range of areas such as; energy and water efficiency; waste management; biodiversity and more. Based on its performance, Ribby Hall Village will then be graded Gold, Silver or Bronze.
The current network of members includes a wide range of business types, including, amongst others, accommodation providers, visitor attractions and corporations. By joining a network like this and taking part in the assessments, Ribby Hall Village hopes to continue to improve its surroundings for future visitors and demonstrate how serious they are about looking after the environment in which we live in a way that is open, honest and will stand up to scrutiny.
The Village is being graded on the 11th August and is going for Gold (fingers crossed!). Watch this space…
