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.

Amazing food, and a great explanation of each dish. We will definitely be returning and it was worth the one hour travel time. The only slight negative was we sat in the window and it was a little chilly but we went for the food and certainly wasn’t disappointed.

Great food. If you want truly quality food and something out of the ordinary this is the place to go. Locally sourced produce (foraged) cooked with imagination and heart. The french inspired steak cuts are great in particular the skirt. Set in a wonderful village and very handy for the Trough of Bowland. I had a brilliant haunch of venison salad followed by a magnificent tomahawk steak. The Mrs had fabulous cauliflower & herb fritters (looked like Bhajis) and wonderful shoulder of pork that had been marinated in cider for 24 hours. The Lancashire cheese board was also excellent. Decent wine list. This was my 2nd visit and the high standards remain. Highly recommended 5/5.

The parker’s arms is for sure the best pub I have raten at!!!! The food is extraordinary, and the portions have a perfect size. And it sticks to traditional pub food but realized at a level that is so far above what I have had in other pubs. In addition to the brilliant food, the hosts are so welcoming. And to make the whole thing better than perfect, it is so Magnifically located in the middle of the forest of Bowland, inviting to have a nice walk before lunch.

A nice evening with lovely food, it was a little too quiet though and we found ourselves whispering. AJ behind the bar and the young waiter were really friendly and knowledgeable. Will come again!

Excellent food and wine in a relaxed country pub atmosphere. £30 for three courses excellent value. Grandson of 10 months clearly enjoyed it too and felt at home.

Excellent meal. Best one on our whole vacation so far. We were really impressed with the creativity of your menu and the dishes we ate. Enjoyed the traditional country pub atmosphere. The "real" fire was a nice touch.

Wonderfully fresh ingredients, simply yet creatively presented in a gorgeous seasonal menu. You can really trust this food, every element is perfectly cooked. The Parker’s Arms is a firm family favourite already and we will be back (again and again!) Always a warm welcome too - thank you all

We found this establishment via an online search. It took us around 2 hours to reach the location having picked up two of our party en route but the summer time “rally cross stage” heading over to Clitheroe was good fun. On arrival we were one of the first diners that evening but within half an hour or so the place soon filled up. Staff were very friendly and attentive offering useful information about menu items when asked. This was especially useful when one of my party made it apparent they were gluten intolerant. Detailing how the sourdough bread was made, included the culture from which the raising agent originated, it was apparent staff cared about the food they made and served. We had the three course option and found all three courses delicious and well presented. My chicken and pork terrine was fab as was the rump steak and the chocolate and peanut butter bar and ice cream. This place might take a bit to reach but is HIGHLY recommended.

We booked for lunch one Friday, although we didn't really need to as when we arrived at 13:00 we were the only ones in. We ordered from the set menu, sardines on toast and cauliflower fritters both of which were excellent. For my main course I ordered the venison with seasonal podded vegetables, which again was very good if slightly lacking in venison (only two small pieces). My wife ordered the mushroom tart that came accompanied by a salad, this was ok but much too heavy on the dressing and consisted mainly of iceberg lettuce. For sweet we shared a chocolate mousse, divine. All in all a very enjoyable meal but maybe a little more venison and less dressing on the salad. That said we will be returning.
