Featured Clitheroe Restaurants
1. La Locanda Italian restaurant in Gisburn Main Street - BB7
A quaint converted building in the Ribble Valley provides the location for Maurizio and Cinzia Bocchis fixture of fifteen years standing, which takes pride in its local sourcing of Italian dishes.
2. The Inn at Whitewell restaurant in Clitheroe Forest of Bowland - BB7
In a beautiful location, by a river in the Forest of Bowland, this ancient inn has olde worlde charm in abundance, and has kept an excellent atmosphere despite growing rapidly over the last few years. It is also renowned for classic food of a very high standard and a notable cellar, but expansion has taken a little bit of the gloss off standards over the years, and those who know it by its old reputation can feel its overhyped, and fine but nothing special nowaday; whereas to those judging it without the baggage of its recent history it produces superb local dishes, well-prepared and well-executed.
3. The Assheton Arms Fish & seafood restaurant in Clitheroe
In the delightful village of Downham with views of Pendle Hill, what is probably the flagship of the ever-growing Seafood Pub Company chain is such a charming pub in such a charming setting. Theres always lovely fish dishes on offer, sometimes with a quirk added, but when it comes to the added embellishments there is a school of thought that it would be better if they had the confidence to let the fish speak for itself.
4. Inn at Whitewell British, Modern restaurant in Clitheroe Near Clitheroe - BB7
2017 Review: The drive is always a treat (whatever the weather) to this sublime, tucked-away, romantic inn, set in the heart of the Forest of Bowland (and one of the North Wests best-known escapes). The former fishing lodge on the Duchy of Lancasters estate looks stunning, and theres a warm and welcome atmosphere (helped by its large wine cellar, from which you can also buy retail). In recent times, the feeling has grown that theres nothing wrong with the cooking, but that its not inspiring, although some long-term fans insist you get the same simple but outstanding fare of yesteryear.
5. The Spread Eagle British, Modern restaurant in Clitheroe Sawley - BB7
2017 Review: On the edge of the Ribble Valley, by the river opposite a ruined abbey, one of the most popular pub-restaurants in the region, thanks to its always excellent food and great beer.
6. Aspinall Arms restaurant in Mitton Mitton Rd - BB7
2016 Review: With a river running by, a lovely country pub with views of the Ribble Valley, which has kept its individuality since acquisition by the Brunning & Price chain in 2014 (and has also benefited from a makeover). You get plenty of choice on the menu front and in summer they also do BBQs in the garden.
