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.

Excellent all round. We treat ourselves to the Parkers Arms 3 or 4 times a year, the food, atmosphere and staff are always spot on, it is without doubt my favourite pub / eating place, even if I had the chance I wouldn't change a thing.

Excellent food, beautifully presented. Food was great value for money we went with the 3 courses for £30. The only reason value for money is a 4 star is because of the cost of the wine which worked out around £9 for a large glass, however I certainly wouldn't let that put me off going again as it taste great. Perhaps I'll just have the 1 glass next time. My husband had half a pint of beer which was only around £2.

The food never disappoints, there is always a special delight to tease the tastebuds on the menu, a menu which changes and is varied. Everyone makes the whole experience a super friendly time. It’s my favorite place to dine and relax. Thank you for such a wonderful time as always.

Absolutely loved everything about this fantastic premises. Food was fantastic, fresh, local and well presented with fabulous flavour. Wonderful service, friendly and unfussy. Have already recommended it on my facebook page and most definitely will return.

After one of the most stressful journeys in history we arrived later for our booking. 45 minutes late meaning we would be probably the last table at the end of a very busy Sunday service. We run somewhere ourselves and really didnt want to be THOSE customers. We neednt have worried, the staff were so friendly and made us and our 3 year old very welcome indeed. The food was exceptional, obviously several dishes had run out by then but thats what happens when you book late on a Sunday and there was more than enough left to choose from. The pork chop was historic. Well worth the 300 plus mile drive alone. The Bowland Brewery Bumble was quite literally nectar. Would love to come back and stay as the setting is magical and the pub has a great vibe. And Id really like a chance to eat my way through more of the menu. Top drawer, couldnt recommend it highly enough. Cheers!

Lovely menu selection and love that they source produce locally! Drinks prices slightly higher than average (£9 for a glass of Prosecco) Service is warm and friendly although slightly haphazard, but this does add to the charm of the place :) we will definitely return!!

Our first time here and we drove from Manchester which was a little far but a lovely drive. Food was excellent and the place is so warm and friendly from the moment you walk through the door. Surrounding area very peaceful and on a nice day would be even more delightful. Everyone was great who worked there. Very welcoming also for our 2 young children all the staff polite and patient. Will definitely be going back soon

Sunday lunch with the family was greatly enhanced by the level of service and above all the quality of food at the Parkers Arms. The lamb was simply to die for! We will definitely be returning soon.

We've been to the Parkers Arms a few times now, and each time, every element of the place has been absolutely note perfect. It is traditional but modern, ambitious but accessible, warm but professional, smart but unfussy. The food, service, and atmosphere are all excellent. They go out of their way to be friendly and accommodating (especially important to us with two children). The menu offers exceptional value for money. Having formerly worked in restaurants, I know how difficult it is to achieve all of this, and to make it look as easy as they do. We will definitely continue to visit regularly!

Very welcoming and some truly delicious food. Wonderful location and excellent service. Highly recommended - and love too that they can offer Vegan options (let them know when you book so they've got you covered) and both times I've had those they've been outstanding. Looking forwards to returning here again. ps - even more bonus points for being dog friendly

So thrilled to find this wonderful place. Excellent food and very knowledgeable, helpful staff. The team are welcoming and friendly. A breath of fresh air amongst so many pubs which promise inspired food and deliver only the usual pub grub. The Parkers Arms is somewhere really different - a genuine, unpretentious place which does offer delicious, inspired food in outstandingly beautiful countryside.
