The Restaurant: Opportunity

The award-winning Dog Inn at Belthorn is looking for an ambitious, dynamic operator to run our dedicated restaurant area.  The restaurant will be operated independently with a secure lease.

The Dog Inn at Belthorn has operated very successfully under community ownership for over two years achieving nationwide accolades. We have invested to completely refurbish the restaurant, refit the large kitchen and create an outside decking area with some of the finest views in Lancashire.

The successful applicant has an opportunity to build an unparalleled reputation for food at this go-to destination pub in East Lancashire.


In the meantime, the restaurant will unfortunately remain closed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Patrick’s coffee shop opening hours:

Monday – Friday: 2pm – 5pm




New Share Offer Launched

We are pleased to announce a new open share offer for people wishing to invest in the Community Pub – either to extend their existing investment, or because they missed out first time round. Full details, and application form are in the Share Offer Document, and a few copies will be in the pub if people want to collect them from there.

Bar Staff

We are currently looking to recruit new members of our bar staff team. They should be hard-working, reliable and, ideally, experienced. Their own transport would also be an advantage.


Coffee Shop Volunteers

We are always on the look out for volunteers to work in Patrick’s coffee shop, be it on a regular or occasional basis. If you would like to join the team, please call in and ask for further details or contact us by email, phone or via our Facebook page.

Free WiFi is available to all of our customers, just ask at the bar or the coffee shop for the current access code.
