About Samlesbury Hall
Here at Samlesbury Hall, we believe the better things in life are those closest to home and with this in mind, we insist on only the finest ingredients sourced from our own gardens and neighbouring Lancashire producers.Dishes are seasoned with fresh herbs from the Hall's own Courtyard using our own chives, mint, parsley, thyme, rosemary and bay leaves.Chef selects quality meat daily from butchers in Leyland and Longridge bringing Forest of Bowland lamb, beef, pork, poultry and sausages a mere hop, skip and a jump from there to here.
Meanwhile, our seafood takes a similarly short journey from the Lancashire fishing town of Fleetwood.
The decision is yours – from tasty, filling soup prepared daily in our kitchen, to a delicious lunch rounded off with a scrumptious chef-made pudding!
The Restaurant boasts a comprehensively stocked Bar serving everything from our own Samlesbury Merlot to a pint of Guinness. The choice is extensive – just ask for your favourite!
Lovely breakfast, good choice for everyone in a very nice historical location
It was half term and just too busy. I booked because I thought it would be busy, but waiting an hour for food with a toddler was just painful. We promised her waffles to pursuade her to behave, and then when we went to the wafflery they had run out of waffles. Disappointed.
We very much enjoyed our visit and lunch, it was our first time. The half term rush presented a huge challenge for staff but we were delighted with the friendly and efficient response from all staff, and delicious food enjoyed by 5 year old and two adults.
I brought friends from Glasgow who were visiting us to see this hidden gem in Lancashire. They found it interesting and hope to return for a longer period, as I do with other friends!
Samlesbury Hall have no empathy for when a last minute cancellation was made when my friends mum got rushed into hospital. Even though there was a promise of rebooking, they were insistent on fining me for the cancelled afternoon tea. I've asked if this can be refunded when we next visit on the rebooking and the answer was no. To have no compassion when something like this happened - shame on you Samlesbury Hall.
The food as always was excellent. Unfortunately the service, as always, was very slow and it wasn’t full. The service is always very friendly but nearly two hours for two courses is just too long, especially with young children.
Booked afternoon tea for my parents as part of their Christmas present, they loved it, said the staff were very attentive and the atmosphere in the restaurant had a nice feel about it when they walked in. Thinking of booking a meal for a birthday surprise next as they really enjoyed their day and were full of praise for the service they received. Thankyou for making this a special day for my mum & dad.
Beautiful setting and interesting and informative place to visit. Lovely afternoon tea
