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.
As we have come to expect, we had a delicious meal, served with courtesy and without fuss.
3 courses for £25, very high standard and great value for money. Top class hospitality and a lovely English setting. Well worth a special trip to visit. You’ll receive a warm welcome. Local produce treated very respectfully. I will return
The food and service were great, but both the inside decoration and the approach from the car park need some attention.
Pleasant table and surroundings, welcoming staff and cheery service. Food wasn't as exciting as we had hoped, a little pricey for what we experienced but tip my hat to the varied menu and enthusiasm to source and produce within 30 miles.
The food, wine and beer were excellent! Carefully thought through flavours really worked. It was so relaxed and friendly. The staff were great, completely comfortable and very knowledgable in responding to our endless questions about the menu. Very high standard for everything but not in the least intimidating. Will definitely come back.
Top class food and service and I would say exceptional value for money. The chicken garlic pie was to die for as was rhubarb dessert.
We adore the Parkers Arms and if we lived closer it would definitely be our "local" for eating and drinking. Friendly and unpretentious. A warm welcome always. Excellent cooking using locally sourced produce. We particularly enjoy eating the fabulous homemade pies with crunchy chips and Game when in season. We had an absolutely delicious Easter Sunday lunch. Crab parfait, Salmon croquettes to start, Lamb confit main courses with crispy roasties, lovely veg & accompaniments. This was all followed by a definitive dark chocolate cheesecake and a dark chocolate pot with white chocolate mousse... A perfect Easter Sunday treat and remarkable value for money.
absolutely gorgeous food as always. I was a bit cold, but it was a very windy and bitter day outside and it is a very old building! Lovely ambience and you certainly make your diners feel very welcome. Well worth the hour long drive to get to you. thank you
Excellent as always
We were a party of 5, all of us have eaten in some wonderful places across the world, and all of us food lovers. Three of our party had not eaten with you before, but will again!! The staff were friendly, and service good. The food was quite exceptional, and different to any other pub in Lancashire, and probably many other places. The menu was unusual with delightful things we have not seen on a menu before. WE had a range of dishes between us and all were perfect, wonderful pastry, unusual dishes, cooked beautifully and well presented. Every one was very friendly, service was well timed and all staff engaging and informed. The journey to you was incredibly beautiful, as good as anywhere. WE will be back, it is an absolute joy to have this place within 45 minutes drive.
Food was delicious. Had a lovely evening.
What a welcome and we were strangers to the pub. Food excellent . What a refreshing delight to go somewhere so enjoyable. We shall be back. Many thanks
Some of the best pastry I have ever eaten and well kept beer at the perfect temperature. My wife and I loved the whole meal and planning our next trip already
Excellent food as always. We tried 3 of the pies seeing as it was British Pie Week, the curried mutton and game pies and the salmon pasty and our favourite was the salmon pasty.
Another fabulous meal - food excellent as always, with great service. One of our favourite places to eat in the Ribble Valley.
We booked for 1:45pm Sunday lunchtime. I would always recommend to book as it gets busy. We used the online booking service for a third time - it works perfectly. I had huge King Prawns cooked in a garlic sauce with sour dough bread - to die for. I got a finger bowl with lemon to wash buttery fingers - how nice is that touch? My hubby had the mushroom and lemon parfait....delicate with good refreshing flavour. Our Pork main course was succulent and tasty with fresh peas and greens - utterly devine. The orange pudding was equally devine. The staff are special people giving real attention to detail. Barista coffee available but please steer clear of main meal service time at weekends.... if its just a quick coffee or tea you want.....stop and have a proper bite to eat instead - you will not be disappointed.....save the quick coffee and tea to a day during the week. I had one of the best dry martinis here - just a perfect mix. A VERY enjoyable lunch sat next to a roaring fire. Cannot fault it.
Really enjoyed the chocolate moelleux
Great unpretentious food executed well.
We booked a table for Sunday lunch and the food was delicious. I thought the soused mackerel were outstanding. I enjoyed the steak as well, but for me the starter really was something. Definitely be back again.
Always a real treat to eat out at the Parkers, your most recently visit is always batter than your last.
Another excellent lunch with outstanding food and good service.
The Parkers Arms is one of our regular family treats. We've trekked up over the Trough to visit for many years now, and every time we've been welcome warmly, and had some of the most amazing food. The menu is incredibly imaginative, and the food beautifully cooked and seasonal. It remains one of my favourite pubs in the UK. I'd wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.
Fabulous meal as always together with great rustic atmosphere
stunning food, amazing atmosphere and great service.,
