At the heart of the pretty and photogenic village of Wrea Green, a regular winner of Lancashire’s Best Kept Village award, stands the 19th century Grapes pub restaurant, overlooking the village green and duck pond. On leisurely summer days the green plays host to the village cricket team, and guests can combine a stroll on the green with a delicious pub lunch. Recorded in the Domesday Book as the hamlet of Wra, the village grew up around the green, the largest village green in Lancashire, and every year in June the green hosts Wrea Green Field Day, a colourful village festival and fair that culminates with the crowning of the Rose Queen. Wrea Green is the starting point for some pleasant walks in the surrounding Fylde countryside and the salt marshes, mudflats and wetlands of the Ribble Estuary, a National Nature Reserve, provide habitat for a rich variety of birds and rare plants. Just three miles from the M55 at Junction 3, The Grapes at Wrea Green is a delightful country pub in a quintessentially English village setting, where guests can enjoy a leisurely pub lunch and seasonal specials throughout the year, along with a selection of fine wines and cask ales. The Grapes is a 19th century country pub situated in the lovely Lancashire village of Wrea Green. Previously known as The Letters Inn and The Dumplings Inn, this attractive pub-on-the-green has been at the heart of the community for years. Wrea Green was first recorded in the Domesday Book as the hamlet of Wra, but evidence suggests the area has been settled since prehistoric times. The nearby ancient market town of Kirkham lies on the old Roman road from Ribchester.
