Double Tree Restaurant Clitheroe – Restaurant Review

The Double Tree Restaurant in Clitheroe has taken over the building that was transformed originally to host another restaurant which closed in 2011. With its prominent position on York Street in Clitheroe, there was plenty of on-street car parking near enough to the restaurant for it not to be a problem. We had read good reviews of this relatively new …

The Oyster and Otter – Restaurant Review

We had been meaning to visit The Oyster and Otter at Feniscowles in Blackburn for some time and our first visit was a overall a great experience. The building seems a world away from the pub that it used to be, with its rustic wooden cladding and beautifully furnished restaurant. The main restaurant has some lovely furniture and the layout gives …

The Rice Bowl – Blackburn – Take-away review

The Rice Bowl on Redlam Road in Blackburn had received generally good ratings on the online ordering system we used to order a set meal. Our order arrived at the promised time and there seemed to be masses of food for the set meal we had ordered. Although there were 4 of us, we had only ordered a set meal …

Restaurant Review – The Myerscough Inn – Samlesbury

On passing the Myerscough Inn on the A59 at Samlesbury it is difficult to realise there are actually two pubs next to each other. The Myerscough is set back slightly from the road and has quaint bay windows and a lovely large garden to use at the back (if only the weather would allow!) We had booked on a very …

Restaurant Review – Amico Mio – Whalley

Our evening had not started well and we found Amico Mio in Whalley by using google maps to find a nearby Italian restaurant. Aren’t mobile phones clever these days. We rang and asked if they had a table available in 15 minutes and it was no problem. We managed to park right outside the restaurant which is on the main …

Restaurant Review – 3 Millstones at West Bradford

3 Millstones

A lunchtime treat was in order, but not wanting to blow the budget on an expensive meal, we spotted an advert for the 3 Millstones at West Bradford near Clitheroe that seemed to fit the bill. They were offering a “Beat the Clock” menu for £11.95 per head for 3 courses from a special limited menu. The menu was available …

Restaurant Review – The Black Bull Inn, Old Langho

The Black Bull Inn at Old Langho came highly recommended and so we decided to visit for a late Sunday Lunch. The pub was packed with customers, which is always a good sign and we found a table in one of the smaller rooms to the side of the entrance. We were soon asked if we wanted drinks by a …

Restaurant Review – Huntley’s of Samlesbury

Huntleys of Samlesbury

Many will have noticed the steady rise of Huntley’s of Samlesbury from a farm to a large complex with restuarant, food hall and retail units including Cosgroves, Furniture and Antiques. Located on the busy A59, here you will also still find a branch of “Out of the Deep” Fishmongers which sadly did not survive their bid to bring lobsters to …

The Spice Lounge Rishton Blackburn – Indian Takeaway Review

The Spice Lounge is a restaurant ‘on the tops’ between Sunnybower and Langho on Wilpshire Road near Parsonage Reservoir. It is a converted pub that many of you may remember as The Shepherd’s Rest. It has large lounges and seating for 150, but also offers a takeaway with delivery service. After the effects of lots of ‘traditional’ food over the festive season we decided that an Indian takeaway would …

Restaurant Review – Raj Indian Restaurant – Bolton Road Blackburn

Indian Food - generic picture

The Raj Indian Restaurant is newly opened and located on the old site of the Moorings Pub on Bolton Road and Chadwick Street in Blackburn. Our first impressions on approaching the restaurant were how tidy the surrounding area was and the easily accessible car park which could comfortably take about 30 cars. There are a few steps up to the entrance …

Restaurant Review – Feilden’s Arms – Mellor Brook

We chose to visit late one Sunday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised by the refreshing …

Take-Away Review – The Friary Whalley

The Friary in Whalley always seems to have a steady flow of customers whether it be for the traditional fish and chips menu or the chinese dishes. We had a group of friends round and having ordered set meals for the correct number of diners and been totally over-faced by the volume of food in the past, we ordered the …

The Knowles Arms – Food Review of relaunched venue

The Knowles Arms on Pleckgate Road has gone through a number of guises over the years, from the heady days when it was a drinking pub and the meeting place before a night out in the town centre to various eating pubs that appear to have had varying levels of success. The latest re-incarnation of the pub definitely places the …

Pub Food Review – The Willows – Free drink and value food

The Willows is a modern pub close to the Guide junction of the M65 on Haslingden Road. It appears somewhat hidden by walls at the busy junction, but for a quick after work meal with a friend it was a convenient place to stop. Having checked up on the pub’s website before visiting, we had noticed a free drink offer. …

Take Away Review – Roe Lee Indian

Having decided on an Indian take away, we decided to order online at just-eat.com but were surprised at the lack of choice of indian food take aways. Lots of pizza and Chinese choices but a distinct lack of Indian food, so maybe some of our local businesses are missing a trick. We had tried Roe Lee Indian Takeaway on Whalley New …

Aspinall Arms, Mitton – Review

A charming old-world pub with large garden perfect for these balmy days. The menu ranged from sandwiches to steaks. The food style can simply be described as good pub grub. There is a choice of tables in the pub, a restaurant area and of course outside (if the weather is kind). The pub features a specials’ board which added a …
