Hidden deep in the Forest of Bowland you'll find this destination restaurant within a comfortable rambling hotel - one of our favourite places to stay in the area, see our Places to Stay section.
Chef Jamie Cadman has built up a solid and reliable network of suppliers over his ten years heading the stoves here, and his menus follow the seasons - with fish and seasonal game well to the fore.
Begin perhaps with 'Chicken Liver Paté à la Ballymaloe'; 'Seared King Scallops with a Warm Salad of Soft Noodles & Crisp Vegetables, with Sweet Peppers & Smoked Chili Oil' and 'Rillette of Jim Beary's Gloucester Old Spot with home-made Piccalilli & Crusty White Bread'.
Maybe to be followed by 'Chargrilled Fillet of Beef with Roast Red Onions, Roast Garlic Mash & Herb Butter; 'Roast Breast of Goosnargh Cornfed Chicken with a Sausage of its own Leg Meat, Braised Lentils & Shallots and Potato Purée' or 'Roast Loin of Bowland Lamb with Pearl Barley & Baby Carrots, Anna Potatoes & a Light Wine Reduction'.
A selection of traditional desserts or local farmhouse cheeses complete your meal.
