About The Parkers Arms
Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:
Fashionable, well-appointed pub, serving and baking the best of British.
As the very definition of a rising star, this tastefully renovated pub and restaurant has everything the worldly gourmand could desire, with none of the faff and pretension that usually comes with that title. Wines and beers are plucked from the world’s finest makers while food is served in the clean lines of the restaurant and woody bar. The menu is divided into ‘Parkers Perennials’ (Fleetwood-landed haddock in Bowland beer batter, potted trout with spiced butter, hot water crust pies, Lancashire cheese tart and Parker’ special s 10 oz Bowland beef skirt) or seasonal specials such as Bowland wild rabbit and ham terrine with beer bread, creamed foraged mushrooms or a Newton hogget leg with black peas and wild garlic in Autumn. With pastries, ice creams, bread, chutneys and more made on site, dessert sees familiar faces pulled off with aplomb. Eccles cakes, vanilla custard, home-made curds and damson compote are just a few examples. A wonderful place to come and recharge the batteries, in one of the country’s overlooked corners.
Loved the logfire and cosy atmosphere of The Parker’s Arms; food and service first class. Have been several times before and the quality of the menu is always excellent.
Amazing food and service as always
This restaurant is set in a beautiful location - both a pleasure to drive to and to arrive there. The warm welcome augurs well for the delicious food to come. The menu always features fresh, local produce innovatively cooked - all for a very reasonable price .I would highly recommend The Parker's Arms at Newton in Bowland.
A wonderful Sunday lunch with the family at the Parker's Arms. Warm welcome, professional service and superb food all made from local produce. Exceptional and would recommend to all. We will be back again for sure.
Always 5/5, every single time. Your food is exceptional and it's great to know I can bring vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerant friends and they will have just as great a meal. Thanks!
Great meal! Why did we leave it so long to return? (6 years!!)
Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere- no piped music! Excellent food and great value for money
I have already recommended your pub to colleagues and I'm hoping some will visit soon. The food was superb, it's perhaps the first time my wife has eaten 3 courses but she could not bear to leave any of it. The young man serving was excellent; conversation, good food knowledge and service. My only critical feedback would be that he needed a partner in serving although I appreciate that a lunchtime in October is difficult to staff for. In conclusion, it was brilliant, an absolute bargain for the quality and we will be back soon.
The adjustable 3 course set menu is extremely well priced for such a delicious, perfectly balanced meal. Packed with seasonal ingredients. Just the right sized portions so at the end you know you have had a satisfying meal without feeling as if you've over eaten. No pretensions.
We love the Parkers Arms. It's a 10 hour round trip to eat there but we'll do it again. It's in a beautiful place, the welcome is warm, the food excellent. We'll be back
What a wonderful lunch we had on Sunday. The Game pasty was outstanding as was the fabulous charcoal grilled place. Beer great as always as was the service. Coming back soon Thanks
We had a lovely evening at the Parkers Arms very friendly and efficient service and our pheasant and duck where beautifully cooked and tender. Well done to all !
Really good food and a friendly welcome from the team. Highly recommended.
An amazing day exceptional food and service. Thank you.
Amazing food, and a great explanation of each dish. We will definitely be returning and it was worth the one hour travel time. The only slight negative was we sat in the window and it was a little chilly but we went for the food and certainly wasn’t disappointed.
Fantastic meal and superb service Plaice was the best fish I've eaten this year
Great food. If you want truly quality food and something out of the ordinary this is the place to go. Locally sourced produce (foraged) cooked with imagination and heart. The french inspired steak cuts are great in particular the skirt. Set in a wonderful village and very handy for the Trough of Bowland. I had a brilliant haunch of venison salad followed by a magnificent tomahawk steak. The Mrs had fabulous cauliflower & herb fritters (looked like Bhajis) and wonderful shoulder of pork that had been marinated in cider for 24 hours. The Lancashire cheese board was also excellent. Decent wine list. This was my 2nd visit and the high standards remain. Highly recommended 5/5.
service was a bit slow - waited over 30 minutes for starters
Fabulous , just fabulous, always impeccable service with the finest of atmospheres
The parker’s arms is for sure the best pub I have raten at!!!! The food is extraordinary, and the portions have a perfect size. And it sticks to traditional pub food but realized at a level that is so far above what I have had in other pubs. In addition to the brilliant food, the hosts are so welcoming. And to make the whole thing better than perfect, it is so Magnifically located in the middle of the forest of Bowland, inviting to have a nice walk before lunch.
Great Sunday lunch. All three courses for all four of our party were excellent. The welcome was warm and friendly. The service was attentive and professional. Would recommend whole heartedly.
A nice evening with lovely food, it was a little too quiet though and we found ourselves whispering. AJ behind the bar and the young waiter were really friendly and knowledgeable. Will come again!
Just as wonderful as always. Amazing food - try the venison pork pie! Cheers for another fab evening.
Very friendly welcome. Food is awesome. Great beer. Homemade elderflower presse is delicious for nominated driver. Our favourite place.
