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.

Loved the logfire and cosy atmosphere of The Parker’s Arms; food and service first class. Have been several times before and the quality of the menu is always excellent.

This restaurant is set in a beautiful location - both a pleasure to drive to and to arrive there. The warm welcome augurs well for the delicious food to come. The menu always features fresh, local produce innovatively cooked - all for a very reasonable price .I would highly recommend The Parker's Arms at Newton in Bowland.

Always 5/5, every single time. Your food is exceptional and it's great to know I can bring vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerant friends and they will have just as great a meal. Thanks!

I have already recommended your pub to colleagues and I'm hoping some will visit soon. The food was superb, it's perhaps the first time my wife has eaten 3 courses but she could not bear to leave any of it. The young man serving was excellent; conversation, good food knowledge and service. My only critical feedback would be that he needed a partner in serving although I appreciate that a lunchtime in October is difficult to staff for. In conclusion, it was brilliant, an absolute bargain for the quality and we will be back soon.

The adjustable 3 course set menu is extremely well priced for such a delicious, perfectly balanced meal. Packed with seasonal ingredients. Just the right sized portions so at the end you know you have had a satisfying meal without feeling as if you've over eaten. No pretensions.

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!
