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.

Why do we keep returning? Easy; at The Parkers Arms you'll get the warmest of welcomes (whether first visit or a regular) and they'll serve you the finest food you can find anywhere. Their wine list is right up there too! Haven't tried their accommodation as yet........we need to do that soon.

I would not hesitate to recommend Parker’s. We have been many times, and will be back again. I have not met a front of house as dedicated as Ben and AJ and the food is easily on a par to Michelin star restaurants in the local area

10:10 in all aspects. Never knew fish and chips could taste so good! Stunning setting for lunch. Impeccable service. Friendly without being intrusive. Professional amidst the necessary pandemic restrictions. Felt instantly safe and comfortable. Already planning our next visit!

We've been before to this pub and it was fine. However this time was not. Despite pre-ordering, the wrong side order was served. When we complained we were told it was what we ordered, but could have another side order if we paid for it. Towards the end of the meal the waiter came and acknowledged we had order correctly and it was his fault. By the time the right side order came my wife had virtually finished her main course. Then there was an hour's wait for the desert course. Overall the food was just ok bearing in mind the price. This establishment prides itself on being an upmarket gasto pub, our experience was anything but on the occasion.

Exceptional food as ever, and the friendliest of welcomes in a safe and socially distanced setting. It’s as close to “just like old times” as it’s possible to be, and we’ll be back to enjoy it again all.

The food and service was lovely as always, I particularly enjoyed the Sirloin which was absolute perfection. My Mum enjoyed it too which was nice as she has Altheimers and she can't get out as much these days. AJ and team made everything as safe as possible under difficult circumstances and it was lovely to see everyone again. thank you for a wonderful meal, our compliments to Stosie, Kathy and the kitchen crew.

Fabulous food, amazing location, great service! Parkers was always going to be our first choice for eating out as restrictions were lifted - and we were completely reassured that measures were in place to keep everyone safe. Food, as always, was outstanding. Can’t wait for our next visit - only wish Parkers was closer to home!

A very enjoyable meal with great service. Due to Covid 19 restrictions we did not see much of the facilities and had a limited order ahead menu. British seasonal food done with flare.

I felt the meals were a bit overpriced, particularly the starters and desserts (the ice cream was nothing special and priced at £12 definitely not worth it). The children’s meals were expensive and a bit bland. Social distancing measures were well organised until a couple were seated at the table directly behind us, I did feel this was far too close. This was our first meal out for a few months, overall an enjoyable experience but would I return? - I’d have to think about that.

Always a welcoming and entertaining host despite the challenges of distancing, brilliant food and we will definitely be back for the third fourth and fifth times, no doubt. Cheers.

A wonderful meal, our first following the pandemic. It surpassed our expectations, lovely warm welcome, clear and defined instructions around new protocols but most importantly the service and food was as brilliant as ever.

We had an absolutely wonderful time. As always the food atmosphere and service were excellent. AJ and Ben were amazing and worked within the Covid guidelines with humour and professionalism. For our first venture 'out out' since lockdown we felt extremely safe and looked after. We will be back soon.

We have the utmost respect for AJ and the team in all the efforts for trying to maintain the wellbeing and safety for all staff and customers during these difficult times yet still being able to keep a smile on their faces and provide a fabulous meal and evening as always. Never ever disappointments and this has now become our safe haven due to us always feeling so safe and pleasantly welcomed.

One of our favourite pubs we’ve ever been to. Always make sure we go when we’re nearby. Excellent everything - friendly service, unreal food (those pork chops are an 11/10), beautiful location and we felt totally safe and looked after dining here in a post-lockdown world. Thanks team!

If you ever doubted that cooking was an art, come to The Parker's Arms, and you'll doubt no more. If you ever doubted that hospitality was one of the cardinal virtues, come to The Parker's Arms, where the service and hospitality are a foretaste of heaven. I was last there yesterday; I'll be back tomorrow, and then when my holiday comes to an end, I'll have the memories until I return. To add to all that, the care being taken to keep up the standard of service while making sure everyone's safe during the covid-19 pandemic is intelligently thought-out, thorough, and unobtrusive. Thanks to every one of the staff for this.
