Housed in what was originally an 18th century manor, Andrew Nutters restaurant enjoys splendid views across the Ashworth Moors and beyond, and his cooking-style draws customers in from many miles around.
Dishes are mainly of the 'à la minute' flash-fried, seared, deep-fried variety and some of these menu descriptions have been omitted in their descriptions here. But expect the likes 'Crispy Goosnargh Duck Confit with Garlic Fries & snow Peas'; 'Bury Black Pudding Wontons with Confetti Of Vegetables' and 'Flash-fried Brill with Frazzled Sage and Onion & Potato & Beetroot Salad' among the starters.
Perhaps 'Roast Cod with Corn Kernel Fritter, Salsa Verde & Sea Bass Fish Fingers'; 'Medallions of Pork with Ginger, Soy Dumplings & Tempura Spring Onions'; 'Peppered Fillet of Lamb with Lemon & Black Olive Mash, Mint & Chili Pesto' and 'Caramelised Baby Onion Tartlet with Glazed Carrots & Rosemary-Roasted Potatoes' among the mains.
Finish with 'Hot Chocolate Torte with a liquid Chocolate Centre'; 'Warm Treacle Tart with Baileys Profiteroles and Rum & Raisin Ice Cream' or 'Trio of Lemon - Caramelised Lemon Tart, Lemon Posset & Lemon Curd Ice Cream'.
Service is both friendly and professional.
