Food at hapton inn
Used to meet friends here for lunch. Always made very welcome and food cheap and cheerful. Now find it has closed down with no prior notice and no explanation. Is it going to reopen at any time. Do hope so.

I have always loved this pub the owners carol and Ian were great and bought from the best stockists.
Now I will never go back in that place again the staff are young and uncaring they are more bothered about talking about their weekend and wanting to finish work and have a pint than helping customers the meat was awful and chewy the salad was limp the place is scruffy there was a young child running behind the bar apparantly the owners daughter surely this is unsafe for goodness sake somebody needs to take over that pub

Just like to say we came in for a meal and the food was lovely and lots on the plates - it was a challenge to eat it all.
The staff were friendly and it was a welcoming and warm atmosphere.

lunch time
I met up with a colleague for lunch today at about 12.30pm. The pub was very busy with the lunchtime rush well under way.
Our meals were lovely and the service was fast and friendly considering how busy they were.
All the staff were very helpful.

veggie specials
Came in on wed eve (3rd Jan)
Had the veggie special off the board - it was delicious.
Great to see some imagination gone into the veggie options. Been a vegetarian for a long time and its always the usual veg lasagne or veg curry but not here.

Disappointed Visitor
Stopped off at the Hapton Inn for a lunch with a business colleague at 12:45 18th December 2006. Car park quite empty -not the usual I had experienced in the past. Plenty of seats to choose from once inside; again not the usual lunch time rush I had been used to.
I ordered the soup and sandwich. Choose the Potato and Leek soup with Beef and onion sandwich. Sorry to say this was a great let down. No home made soup I’m afraid only packet which had not seen the light of a potato in it’s making let alone leek - just hot water and flavouring. The sandwich did have beef in it but was covered (over the sandwich) with too much raw onion. Presentation was not good - I was embarrassed at having brought my business colleague to such a place and have relayed this back to my organisation.
Children have always been provided for and accommodated up to the time allowed - that’s nothing new.

If ‘Michelle’ considers the comments on this page, then please start and think about your catering suppliers & presentation of your food and look at having ’actual homemade soups’ not packet soups.

A Buzzing Pub!!
I have been going into the Hapton Inn for quite a while both under the old owners and the new ones. More since the new owners took over as I have found it a more pleasant experience. The food is excellent and the portions are very substantial. I now don't just go in to eat as there is quite a variety of entertainment going on, with monthly quizzes and regular bands playing the pub is usually buzzing!!. I happen to pass the pub quite a lot on my way into town and work and the car park is always busy, especially at the weekends. The service has improved greatly and the pub is very clean, I think that Michell and Nick are making a great effort to improve the pub in all directions, quite a feat with a new baby I must say. I will certainly be spending more time at the Hapton Inn in the future!!

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all those that have taken the time to put a comment on this web site.
It has been a challenge this year one to which I hope we have risen to. We have taken on board people's comments.
Thanks to a great team who put their all into making the pub work for everyone, they have a lot of pride in their work.
Thanks to everyone (both old and new) for sticking by us and hello to the new faces we are beginning to see.
Thanks for the compliments and thanks for coming to the pub whether it be for a celebration or just a quick meal it means a lot to us.

What a great idea.
My daughter had a brilliant time at the kids xmas party on Saturday. Santa made all the children's faces light up when he gave out the presents.
Thanks for doing something for the kids and I hope you will be doing the same next year

Sunday Dinner
We haven't been in for a while but there is a noticable difference in the quality and standards since we were in last time (for the BETTER we must say). We asked someone if the pub had changed hands and ended up speaking to Michelle the new landlady. We were impressed by the standard of service and the amount and quality of the food.
We told Michelle that there aren't many places now that welcome children into their places but we have found somewhere that likes children and genuinely cares about its cutomers.
Thanks and we will now be making your pub our regular

Nice to see that the Hapton Inn has a web site; BUT - Sorry to see that the car park is still empty, where once full to brimming. What has happened?
Looked at the web page for Christmas and this is not available until November 2006. This I feel is rather too late and I shall now book else where. All other establishments are providing Christmas Menus in August; and booking up.
If the new patrons of this establishment could see and heed the recommendations then I hope that they would do something about this - not only too keep the Hapton Inn , as their investment, but also for the locals that loved this pub so much.

What a shame that this has happened., and custom i
Sadly the Hapton Inn is no longer the place to eat. This is very evident in the number of cars in the car park. This car park was usually very full 7 days a week, often having to get there for 5pm for a space in the evening and was packed constantly at weekends; now it is more or less empty - speaks volumes to delivery and quality of food. Booking a was also required to ensure a table later on in the evening.
Yes we could still go there for a drink but the main attraction for this pub was the food and service.
What a shame that this has happened., and custom is obviously going elsewhere.

No Longer the best since it's ben sold !
Sadly the pub has changed hands and we were not aware of this! Noticed the distinct change in the service and meals, that we have been used to over the past 7 years; but initially thought the owners had enlisted managers during their holiday, and that on their return would be very angry at the potential loss of custom and denigration of the status that Hapton Inn has around this area. The Curry dish no longer had the popodomms and chutney with it, as it says on the menu. I complained but they never arrived. The waitresses were spilling gravy and soup on the floor as they walked towards the tables, and despite people explaining that they were doing this; it did not cause them to falter. What a mess the carpets will be in months to come. This great pub has served Hapton, Padiham and the surrounding areas well over the years. Sadly the new owners do not have the same standards! I will not be returning, but I will move my custom to the Whitaker Arms down the Road towards Accrington

Sadly upper Hapton Resident.
