The pair have taken over as operators through Inglenook Inns and Taverns, which has more than 50 pubs and inns across the North West.
Dan said: “We are both extremely excited to keep the Grapes at the heart of the community.
“It has always been a dream of ours to run our own country pub and we have been given a fantastic opportunity to do so.

Dan and Nathan are introducing a new menu, offering fresh home cooked food bought from local suppliers such as Anderton’s of Longridge and Johnson and Swarbrick’s Goosnargh chicken.
The pub is child and dog friendly and has a dining room space, a large outdoor beer garden and a 40 seater function room available to suit birthday parties, christenings and conferences.
There is a hot and cold buffet menu available to go along with the room.
Dan said: “A new menu is in the works and will be out soon, and we are already taking bookings for Christmas!”
