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.
Food outstanding, especially the mushroom parfait
Very impressed excellent meal and service. Will definitely come again .
Lovely, friendly, welcoming, delicious -a real treat.
Wine a tad expensive , nearly £20 for 2 glasses of Rioja , food and service excellent, host very friendly, third visit and certainly will go again
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.
Attentive staff. Great atmosphere. Menu varied and locally sourced ingredients Would book an overnight stay next time !:)
We loved our visit. We were made to feel very welcome - despite being an hour late (unexpected road closure!!). Food was interesting,excellent and full of flavours. The 3 course deal was excellent value. Lovely place, lovely people and exceeded our expectations
Excellent service, excellent food, 5X5-stars above is no exaggeration. My thanks for a memorable 20th wedding anniversary family lunch. Dr Peter J Senior
We had a great evening with delicious and interesting food and excellent service
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!
Consistently excellent, great tasty local food, a relaxed end welcoming place to spend time with friends da and enjoying fantastic cooking and service
Amazing and consistent! Lovely people, great food and drink! A definite must!
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.
We had a fabulous lunch!! Great atmosphere, food and a very friendly landlord. We will be back!!
Superb meal and all round experience
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.
excellent lunch. Loved the rosemary icecream
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.
Fantastic service and food using local produce was very impressive, will definitely return and would recommend highly.
great pub atmosphere, beautiful . quality food and presentation
