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.

Absolutely superb meal as always. Never disappoints every time we visit. Thel ocal gin and tonic from Burnley was delightful, the potato skins amazing, the Argentinian Prawns were delicious and the east coast lobster was sublime. The chocolate mousse pudding just finished everything off. AJ and team out front were so helpful and Stosie and team in the kitchen were making incredible food. Well done . Recommended all the time :)

This visit to The Parkers Arms was just our second episode and we're determined to develop it into a long running series. You're located at the centre of a wonderful part of the country, which makes even our journey to get there a real pleasure. Then, on arrival, well I guess our star rating above says it all. Can't wait to come back and see you again.

We chose The Parkers Arms for a relaxed treat for my parents ahead of their golden wedding anniversary. The most beautiful rolling Lancashire countryside makes for a remarkable approach to the village. The sun was out so a glass of bubbles in the garden, courtesy of my sister in Saudi Arabia, with more tremendous views, was a perfect start. Inside was relaxed and welcoming... a great balance of being a real pub and delivering delicious food without pretence. The Parkers team were engaging and warm. The food well deserving of its 8th place in the top 50 UK gastropubs. A stunning rainbow crossed the sky during dessert... we couldn't have scripted it better! Driving home via Dunsop Bridge and the Trough of Bowland as the sun was setting rounded off a fabulous evening. Thank you.

The staff were friendly and helpful but we felt they were understaffed and finding it difficult to provide excellent service, particularly on the bar.
