Summary

“This former roadside (right on the busy A59) pub, looks nothing from the outside (a nondescript stone building and a somewhat windswept car park), but the interior is quite glam (like a 1990s nightclub) and it has now been turning out some of the best Chinese-ish cooking in rural Lancashire for over ten years”. It’s a “fun” spot and the cooking is “first rate”: arguably a little “safe” (“rooted in a westernised version of Cantonese food, with no offal and not even a mention of Sichuan”) but “spot-on” and “really marking it out from many Chinatown places, the ingredients are top-notch quality”.

Summary

“An unremarkable building on the A59 between Preston and Clitheroe houses this remarkable Chinese-inspired restaurant”, where the food – “a westernised style” of Cantonese cuisine “like no other” – is “not heavy or greasy”, with “higher quality ingredients than you’ll find in many Chinatown based operations”. Service is “impeccable” too, and even if “the decor is slightly dated” there’s a “buzzing” atmosphere.

Summary

“Whatever you pick it tastes wonderful every time” at this outstanding (especially for rural Lancashire) Chinese, in the Ribble Valley, whose “very blingy” decor lends a “’70s-takeaway-meets-Hakkasan” effect to “an unprepossessing building by the side of the A59 east of Preston”. “Anyone looking for authenticity and weird bits of animals is going to be disappointed – the menu is fairly standard Cantonese; what marks it out is the high standard of cooking and even higher standard of ingredients”.
