I visited here with my mum for afternoon tea and we had such a lovely relaxing afternoon. The selection of sandwiches, cakes and tea's was all wonderful and the room was warm and cosy with a beautiful view. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, we will definitely return it was just what the doctor ordered!

I'm l really glad that I got a Groupon for the afternoon tea which my girlfriend and I had because if I'd have had to of paid full price for it then I would have been pretty annoyed. The mucky, unpeeled carrot garnish that is in the picture I've included is of something that was used to 'decorate' the afternoon...

Great time spent chatting with friends. Lovely food, attentive staff in beautiful surroundings. We must have enjoyed it because we booked again the week after! Lots of parking, ramps if you were in a wheelchair. They had a wedding on this week and it was lovely to see the fires lit.

My partner and I had the Prosecco afternoon tea and weren't expecting anything amazing due to booking though groupon. The cafetière didn't work so the coffee was awful. The Prosecco was nice. The sandwiches were very standard not very tasty. The scones came ready filled with cream and jam, this may be picky but I think cream and jam should...

Always a warm welcome from Neil . Gill and Anita. The menu is varied and Dan the chef always willing to go off menu if you prefer. And not forgetting the lovely breakfast cooked by Caroline always with a cheery smile. Iam a frequent guest at this hotel and wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the area.

We've recently booked our wedding at The Whitehall Hotel and we couldn't be happier. Neil is outstanding and can't do enough for you - he's always willing to answer questions and bends over backwards to accommodate your requests. This is the only venue we visited which offered us a drink on arrival (a small gesture but it really did make...

I had a Groupon afternoon tea for two bought for me on Groupon as a birthday present. Picking a rare child free weekend we chose a Saturday to take it. The staff were a little slow but very polite and friendly, chatty and knowledgeable about recent refurbishments and function availability. I felt as if I were seated in a corridor...

Ask a question

I have been looking at your hotel as a potential venue, however my concern seen by my partner to a recent reviews about poor service where of no great concerns given peoples differing opinions.

However my one major area of concern is with your apparent substandard food hygiene rating as identified on ratings.food.gov.uk/business/en-GB/212113/Whitehall-Hotel-Darwen by the local council

The site rates your establishment as a 2 – Improvement necessary at the date of inspection on the 03 August 2016

Area inspected by food safety officer Standards found

Hygienic food handling - Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage - Generally satisfactory

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building - Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene - Improvement necessary

Management of food safety - System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future. -Generally satisfactory

What can you do as a potential visitor to alleviate my concerns of not becoming ill due to your poor food preparation standards especially around the

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building which was reported as “Improvement necessary”?

Can you advise of why such a highly rated venue would achieve such a low score?

Can you confirm what improvements you have made?

Can you ensure your food preparation is of a standard rather than of a dodgy back street café or take-away?
