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.

Another great meal at The Parkers Arms. Very hard to fault - outstanding food (one of the best pies I have had), the warmest of welcomes, good beer and the children welcomed. Nice refurb and fair prices. Thanks and will return soon!

The Parkers Arms is such a lovely, authentic experience. It's like going to have dinner with friends - friends that are really great chefs, hosts and vintners. It's a genuinely warm and lovely night out.

Met for lunch with some friends and their dog, very friendly staff who fussed the dog and gave him a steady supply of treats. 3 pies and a filet steak for main courses with a selection of deserts, all attractively presented, perfectly cooked and deliciously flavoured. The portions don't look overly large but are actually very filling. A good selection of beers and other drinks - highly recommended for a relaxing afternoon out in beautiful surroundings.

The Parkers Arms continues to excel in all sectors; cuisine, atmosphere, value and service. Add to that its location and one has pretty well ticked all the boxes.

Booked table for 2pm but arrived over half an hour early. Our table was already prepared for us so it wasn't a problem. I have marked down on atmosphere as there was hardly anyone else in but that might be because it was midweek and also at the very end of the food service time. Food was pricey for lunch but the quality was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful.

I'm very picky so we don't eat out that often as I have the "I could do that at home" mentality. Trust me, Parker's is worth every penny as "I can't do that at home"!! Everything is top notch, quality of food, service and the warmest of welcomes.

Beautifully presented tasty food by friendly and welcoming staff. We celebrated our 32nd anniversary here this week whilst holidaying in the village and the food served, did not disappoint. The pub offers a good variety for the discerning gin aficionado and if you enjoy real ale, you won't be disappointed by the local 'blonde'.

Probably the most amazing pie I've ever eaten - salt marsh lamb and cockle - incredible. Staff were great, very professional, friendly and helpful. Drinks were fab. We felt totally comfortable, even with our baby daughter, and I would not hesitate to recommend it. We'll hopefully return very soon. Really an excellent place.

I chose The Parkers Arms to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Our party of 8 can be a tricky bunch - but everyone enjoyed the occasion. AJ and his front of house team were brilliant. Stosi's food is wonderful. The Grouse, Lamb and Cockle pie, and roasted plaice were real highlights. Embrace the pub's authenticity and localness and you won't go wrong. My parents plan to return as they're newly adopted UK favourite haunt.

Had a fabulous birthday meal here. Asked for a recommendation there was too much good stuff to choose from, and our waiter pointed out the lamb and cockles pie which we had previously dismissed. It was absolutely delicious! What a lovely idea to take local lamb reared on salt marsh and mix it with the cockles from the same coastline! The flavour was delicious, not fishy at all, but rather exquisite. Pastry was great too. My only complaint about the main meal was the little dishes the veggies were served in - such a faff to eat out of, we just tipped the contents onto our plates. Save yourself some work, dish cleaning and collection, and do away with this fuss! Our starters: queenie scallops, homemade sausage roll, were both delicious. One of our puddings, involving a polenta cake, was a bit dense, but everything surrounding it made it still a delight to enjoy. We have already recommended you to friends and family!

Parkers is truly fabulous and really deserves the many awards it has. Just wish it was a little closer to home so we could visit more often.

we came to The Parker's Arms for my mum's birthday and it did not disappoint. It is in a beautiful setting and we enjoyed a couple of drinks outside before having our meal. The food was fantastic and the local products really made a difference to the quality of the meal; it's probably the first time I've ever been excited about the vegetables that I've eaten! We will definitely be visiting again!
