If you have every travelled along the A59 past BAe Systems at Samlesbury you will have seen the signs for this establishment. We first visited a couple of years ago and it was already shaping up as a good local food venue. However a rainy Lancashire summer day, saw 3 friends meet for lunch on a Saturday. Phew was it busy, after fighting our way on to the car park we had a quick look around and were all pleasantly impressed with the new food hall , so now not only can you sample Huntleys Ice cream, you can purchase made on the site bread and cakes and meat, fish , cheese, veg, wines from local suppliers. However we had come to lunch, we grabbed a table quickly as the large homey restaurant started to fill quickly. Hubby ordered the pie ( he's becoming a connoisseur of pies !), I ordered the roast beef and Zoe the Lancashire ploughman's.
Very impressed , all homemade by the look of things, the gravy with hubby's pie was amazing. And portions ample, especially the ploughman's, Zoe had to eat over half a pound of 2 types of Lancashire cheese. Recommend you visit and get there early as it gets very busy.
