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.

Had a wonderful time yet again here. From the great food, to the team who are so welcoming and knowledgeable about the food too. Everything we ordered was fantastic and the local sourcing of brilliant ingredients is great. In addition, quality cask ales and a good value wine list were much appreciated. Going to keep coming back and have already booked the next visit !!

Yet another flawless meal. Friendly service, sensational food, and a warming log fire. Would highly recommend the pork chop if it’s on the menu. Absolute perfection, as always.

Fab food especially the puddings. Excellent home made elderflower cordial. Unfortunately the bad weather led to an empty pub so the atmosphere was not what it might gave been however the roaring fire made up for it. We will be back

As I said to the gentleman i believed to be the owner when he asked if we had enjoyed the meal. Bloody Fantastic Food. Most excellent in every respect and lives up to its reputation and reviews. Can still taste the mussels and pumpkin dish on my palate. Superb cooking and brilliant service.

Staff forgot to tell us that a main is mandatory over weekends. The starter squid was converted to a "mains" squid at the suggestion of the chef but still worked out as one small squid. Beautifully cooked, however, as was my wife's cod loin.

The Bowland aged beef was sublime - loved the combination of the BBQ sauce, black peas and tahini. And the custartd was to die for - such a clever twist. We'll be back soon!

Superb food - absolutely delicious and an inventive menu. Probably the best pork chop ever! Cooked to perfection. And the cheesecake!! Stunning. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the liver starter. Can’t fault any of the food.

Fab all round. I really quite liked the confidence in the menu to say to me 'no, you can't have chips with that as that dish comes with mash'. Do you know what.....you were absolutely right!!! Food superb, wines great and interesting, service people there very helpful and chatty. Would we go there again to eat.....totally.....and, in fact we will be booking again for early in the New Year when we're next in Lancs.

A delicious choice on the menu, difficult to know what to choose. The smoked cod's roe was light and soft, the pork chop historic and the cheesecake creamy and moreish. Our friends from Somerset were suitably impressed with their choices.

We drove over to the Parkers Arms for Sunday lunch from Manchester. We had heard fabulous things about the restaurant and it lived up to all of them. The food was incredible - I particularly recommend the venison parfait starter and the pork loin main. The atmosphere and service made us feel very welcome.
