Posting to her Instagram story, Aisling Bea thanked the restaurant for hosting them

She said: "Shout out to The Wellsprings restaurant for the lovely cocktails and not getting us caught in the rain.”

Catherine Marhraoui, owner of the restaurant, said the cast were “on good form”, tucking into cocktails, quesadillas, paella and more.

She said: “They came to us because we have such a good view of the Ribble Valley from the restaurant.

"They were all great fun and enjoyed being here. They were very impressed with the restaurant.”

Catherine said the movie production is a great thing for the business and others in the area.

She said: “Every business now needs as much promotion as they can, so having movie scenes being shot in the area is absolutely brilliant for the North West, as I am sure the movie is going to be so big.

“Out restaurant is quite popular anyway, but the recent filming has attracted more diners to the restaurant.

“It’s excellent for the area and we can’t wait to see the film.”

It’s not the first time cast and crew have been to the restaurant, as filming took place on the Nick Of Pendle last Tuesday (April 5). They took a break from filming to enjoy a hot drink.

Catherine said: “On Tuesday, we got the typical Lancashire rain. We got the cast and crew some tea and coffees to warm them up and get them out of the rain.

“They all came back for a meal at the weekend where they actually got to enjoy a good view and some sunshine.”

Filming for Greatest Days has been taking place in Ribble Valley since the start of April.

Last week, they transformed Doe Bakehouse’s shopfront especially for the movie, changing the font for aesthetic reasons.

The filming has also brought some disruption to Ribble Valley roads, with several closed so scenes can be shot in the Clitheroe area.
