The Restaurant at Ribby Hall Village introduces its Monday night Chip Shop Tea. The perfect solution for the beginning of the week when you don’t feel like cooking. Excellent value fish and chips in stylish surroundings using the very best produce and all home-made.
Head chef Simon Ball has taken great pride in sourcing the very best premium local Haddock from Fleetwood for your Monday night tea. He is coating the fish in his secret recipe, super crispy batter and serving it with his legendary triple cooked hand cut chips. All the pies are homemade. The sensational pickling trolley includes tomato ketchup, vinegar, red salt and big glass jars of home-pickled eggs and onions. The pickling trolley will be brought to the table with your main course.
Bevan Middleton, Manager of The Restaurant at Ribby Hall Village says: “We’ve introduced the Chip Shop Tea as an affordable way to have an informal and relaxing supper on Monday evening when you least feel like cooking. Everyone loves a chip shop tea and Simon’s promises to be one of the best – everything is home-made using the best ingredients. At The Restaurant we like to take a well-loved simple meal and turn it into something special. You should try our steak night on Wednesday too!”

Hot off the press, Ribby Hall Villages NEW and very first Magazine called R Magazine will next week be delivered to residential properties and business premises throughout the Fylde Coast and Preston areas.
Perhaps best known as a five-star holiday village after a decade of advertising on Granada TV, or most recently for the ALL-NEW Spa Hotel; bosses at Ribby Hall Village are keen to ensure local residents are aware of all they can enjoy as a day visitor to The Village. Local residents of all ages are being encouraged to visit for an hour, a day or even an overnight stay to experience one of the more than 60 different sport & leisure activities on offer or to sample some culinary delights in the restaurants, cafes and bars available.
Thanks to customer demand for Ribby Hall Village’s vast array of products and services for local residents, the company continues to go from strength to strength and when both locally and nationally companies are having to streamline their organisational structures and staff numbers, Ribby Hall Village is currently in the midst of yet another recruitment drive, culminating in more than 100 new staff joining the company in less than 12 months.
Mark Partington, Operations Director at Ribby Hall Village was keen to point out the importance of attracting local people to use the fantastic facilities on offer,
“Ribby Hall Village is very much geared towards providing local people with everything from traditional beauty treatments to fabulous full on spa pamper days to delicious homemade café lunches in the NEW Lavender Tea Room to afternoon tea and dinner in The NEW Brasserie at The Spa Hotel. In addition to the international brands we work with including Starbucks, Papa John’s, OPI and Dermalogica to name a few, we’re extremely proud of all we have to offer, and so every time we talk to someone locally about what’s new or indeed an event that’s happening at The Village, it’s always disappointing when you hear ‘Oh, I didn’t realize Ribby is open to local residents.’ We’re hoping that our Magazine will start to help us talk to those who enjoy living in the surrounding towns and villages that could also benefit from spending a little time with us. Hopefully this is going to be the first of many editions!”
