Spring is definitely springing. Whilst we all may still need our wellies and walking boots for a jaunt outside, I think its well worth doing. This time of year is one of my favorites. Birds are out singing and fighting for territories and we begin to see splashes of early colour through snowdrops, daffodils, heather and lesser calendine. I thought I would share a few of the beautiful and wierd things you can see on ribby at this time of year.

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.

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!”
