Food, drink, and culture by the riverside...

Sat on the outskirts of Miller Park, next to the River Ribble, The New Continental is a popular spot for both food and drink amongst walkers, cyclists, and locals. It also sits along the Guild Wheel route, making it the perfect pit stop for something refreshing.

The pub and entertainment venue boasts a large beer garden for sunny days, complete with sheltered and grassy areas; perfect for those visiting with children or dogs.

Drink and entertainment

The Continental is renowned for its fantastic range of changing ales, house beers, artisan ciders, European and US beers, award-winning wines, and selection of soft drinks and coffees. You're guaranteed to discover something new and delicious, with only quality in mind.

When it comes to entertainment the Continental has it sussed. The pub hosts its own annual beer festival, seeing people from all over come to experience an abundance of beers and tasty food by the riverside.

Weekends and evenings are also catered for throughout the year, thanks to the pub's busy events programme and adjoining entertainment venue. The pub hosts all kinds of events; from film nights and poetry evenings to live music and performing arts.
