Like all good snowy walks, ours ended in a pub with a roasty, toasty fire. The waiter let us know that their delivery vans were having some problems with the snowy driving conditions, so we settled in to our drinks. And the kitchen produced some...More

Our main courses were lovely and though the starters and puddings looked very tempting we were in a bit of a rush so gave them a swerve. Will come back and recommend to friends.

I would say so. They usually cater really well for veggies and vegans. Why don't you just mention it when you book. That way, they know in advance and can make you something really tasty and keep some back for you if it gets... More

A contemporary country inn with its fair share of history, The Parkers Arms is located just outside of Clitheroe in the prettily sleepy village of Newton in Bowland where, so we���re told ���you can hear the grass grow���. The beautifully traditional whitewashed inn, hung with colourful baskets of flowers and lined with parasol shaded outdoor tables, invites guests in with the promise of glorious regional food and a relaxed but sophisticated atmosphere ��� both of which it delivers in spades. The cuisine is rightfully British, with a few global treats of course, based on local and seasonal ingredients cooked using creativity and imagination as well as a little tradition too (and speaking of tradition we absolutely insist you try the fantastic Sunday roast here at The Parkers Arms). Pints of good local ales are joined by delicious wines from all over the globe, so whether you���re resting after a bracing dog walk or celebrating a special occasion, The Parkers Arms has not only the food but the drink to suit too. Indeed, balancing modern and classic style, informal and efficient service and relaxed and special food, The Parkers Arms appears to have created what could quite easily be the perfect local inn.
