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.

Great food, the picnic boxes are a great idea for keeping food warm outdoors. Nice to have a pint of draught ale for a change. Wooden cutlery wasn't up to the job though :-( Would recommend to anyone.......

Had a fantastic meal at The Parkers Arms, with lovely food and really excellent service. The kids were able to run around and play, and we were also able to bring our dog, so would definitely come back

Difficult times for hospitality at the moment, and we were enjoying this lunch under the marquee due to covid. It was hammering down and cold outside, but the welcome was warm, the service was genuine, and the food was excellent. Thank you very much, we will be back.

It was a truly horrible rainy day but the staff did everything to make our lunch as lovely as possible, food & service was great, nothing could be faulted. If this was them unable to operate fully then I can’t wait to return & experience The Parkers Arms when they are full steam ahead!

Parker’s is my favourite pub in the UK. We might’ve chosen the most miserable day ever to visit again this weekend, but despite the awful weather, the team all had huge smiles on their faces, were warm and welcoming and served first-class picnic food - but that’s no surprise! Thank you to the team as ever for another wonderful experience. Can’t wait to come back soon.

A wonderfully warm welcome, super staff and great food and considering the atrocious weather the team delivered a lovely birthday dining experience. We will definitely return and look forward to coming inside next time, thank you all.

Although the weather was terrible we fully knew what to expect from a climate perspective! I appreciated the fact that there could only be a reduced menu however I was staggered at the lack of value for the food purchased. The Salmon was £30 and served cold meaning my daughter couldn’t eat it and we had to take it home to warm it up and eat it and this led to a very hungry child and marred the experience overall. The cheese and onion pie for £20 with fries was just ‘ok’ but again a lack off cheese and taste and not worth the price point. The pint of Ale was the lovely but that doesn’t offset the close to £100 price point for what was in honesty very marginal portions and very limited choice. The service was great throughout and Ben was fantastic from the booking process to on the day service. Great effort to serve under awful weather conditions by all the team so well done.9

The Parkers Arms outdoor menu was perfectly pitched for marquee dining. The food was amazing. I mean really gorgeous. The super warm welcome more than made up for the chilly and damp Bank Holiday weather. Thank you it was a wonderful birthday treat x

A little disappointed at the cost as a brioche of beef brisket with fries and slaw £20 each!! Wasn’t worth the money at all the food was good but obviously the prices had been bumped up. There we also no prices online either. The service was fab but then there were only is there at that time. We also had to pre pay the night before so what happened if one of us had tested positive for covid? Would we have received a refund?
