Waggon at Birtle

131 Bury and Rochdale Old Road, Birtle, Birtle, Lancashire, BL9 6UE
Find this good neighbourhood restaurant, with a bistro feel, in a converted pub on the B6222 - although only the outside walls of the original building remain.

Chef/proprietor David Watson's menus follow the seasons, and while ingredients reach out to foreign climes, Lancastrian produce produce figures prominently.

Find the likes of 'Char-Grilled Salmon with Spinach, Rocket and Soy-flavoured Bean Sprouts'; 'Chicken Broth with Chorizo Sausage and Cabbage'; 'Potted Crab, King Prawns and Tiger Prawns' and 'Chicken and Black Pudding Terrine - Wrapped in Parma Ham' among the starters.

Perhaps 'Fillet of Beef with Braised Beef and Oxtail'; 'Cornfed Chicken Breast with Leeks, Carrots and Crayfish Cream' and 'Fish of the Day' - maybe grilled sea bass, or the best of what's available - among the mains.

Maybe finish with 'Bitter Chocolate and Amaretto Torte, with Armagnac Prunes and Jersey Cream'; 'Banana, Pecan and Caramel Crumble' or their selection of British and Lancashire cheeses.
