The Cartford Inn (formerly Cartford Hotel) is a public house and boutique hotel in Little Eccleston-with-Larbreck, Lancashire, England. It stands on the southern banks of the River Wyre, just off the Cartford Bridge, one of the few remaining toll bridges in the United Kingdom, with views to the northeast of the Forest of Bowland.[3]

The Beaumé family have owned the inn since 2007,[2] after they purchased it from John Smith.[4] Julie Beaumé was born in nearby Blackpool, while Patrick Beaumé was born in the Médoc, Bordeaux.[3]


A former coaching inn, [3] the first record of "The Cartford Inn" name was in 1839.[1]


There are fifteen rooms in the main inn.[3] There are also two cabins — named Ziggy and the Robins Nest[2] — on the property.[5]

The inn is included in the Michelin Guide,[6] and has been awarded an AA five-star rating.[5] Before the AA became the licence holder of the quality assessment schemes, the inn also received five stars from VisitEngland.[5]

Food and drink[edit]

The inn's food, made by head chef Chris Bury,[2] was reviewed by The Guardian's Jay Rayner in 2017[7] and The Caterer's Brendan Coyne in 2015.[3] Bury took over the head-chef position from Ian Manning in 2016.[3]

Also on the property is the two-storey River House,[8] which was John Smith's Hart Brewery.[9][10]
