The Fisherman’s Retreat is nestled in Twine Valley at the edge of the Pennine hills, three miles east of the town of Ramsbottom. There is no passing traffic, bar the occasional hot air balloon.
We opened our doors to the public on December 5th 1992. Our bar and waitress skills were laughable and only mum in the kitchen seemed to have her act together. However 20 years later we are a lot more knowledgeable and much better prepared, but still learning! The Fisherman's Retreat has evolved from a place intended only for fishermen, to an award winning bar, restaurant, wedding venue, function suites and specialist whisky shop.
