“Cosy rooms over the best dining pub we know.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Living just a stones throw away from the Parkers Arms we frequent the bar & restaurant regularly so were delighted to be given a voucher for dinner, bed and breakfast for our wedding. Finally a chance to dine without one of us having to drive home!!

We had to change the reservation once but this was no trouble to the wonderful Parkers team and we were welcomed this weekend as old friends. The rooms are cosy with beautifully presented hospitality trays - proper coffee and home made biscuits! No fiddly UHT milk when there is ample locally sourced, fresh milk available from the bar.

Dinner was amazing, it always is - there is a good reason why Parkers have won so many awards. There is always something different on the menu in addition to the Parkers Perennials, I tried the crab parfait and the hubby had pheasant for his main. The local ale was well received by my husband and as an ex-drayman he knows his pints!

After a warm nights sleep under the nicest duvet I've slept under in years we had a beautiful breakfast with golden yolked eggs (runny yolks of course), meaty sausages and bacon so thick my husband thought it would be better labelled gamon... This treat is something we would never get as locals!! (I should point out here that opening the curtains to a view so stunning truly is a moment to savour.)

With full tummies and content from the wonderful hosting and hospitality we headed off to make a start on the Christmas shopping....now the less said about that the better!!!

Obviously we're not going to sleep at the Parkers on a regular basis but we will send our family and friends to do so (our spare room isn't big enough for a double bed even) and we will never ever have too much of Stosie's cooking!!

Our second trip to The Parkers Arms but the first one staying the night. It is a Pub with rooms, the rooms were small but cosy and clean. AJ looked after us extremely well. We were asked if we minded having our evening meal at 8 ish so that the trick or treaters had been and gone (this was Halloween) and we were happy with this. The locals added to the atmosphere otherwise it might have been a bit quiet. The food was really good as per our last visit. We were asked what we wanted for breakfast in the evening and we didn't mind that. The breakfast was lovely. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will definately be back. A great deal for the money.

Arriving at the Parkers Arms on a Blustery Saturday afternoon we recieved a very warm welcome from A J the manager and owner of the Inn who greeted as old friends and we were told our rooms were ready After settling in A J offered us a welcome drink and asked when we would like to eat despite the place being heaving with a party of local shooters we were made to feel important ; Well done A.J. . Dinner that evening was as usual first class ,good food ,good choice ,well cooked and served all in all a great start to a weekend .Breakfast to die for ,nothing too much trouble. We wiil be back

The food at this pub with rooms is excellent, we stayed for two nights with friends, all were very impressed with the food. Adrian our host was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms were just ok, for approx £70 bed & breakfast we were not expecting 5star, but they were small and tired looking. I imagine most people just go for the food, we will definately be back. The starter of homemade Pastrami was amazing!

Whilst reconnoitering a walk for my local rambling group, it was so hot that day we decided to call in at this hotel in the village of Newton in Bowland. We had a friendly welcome from the Landlord so both had a Shandy to help us on our way!

On returning home we came to Newton again so decided to have a meal.
We had to wait a short while as they do not start serving until 6.30pm. Plenty of choice on the Menu and the food was good, but I thought 3 scoops of homemade ice cream at £5 a bit pricey.

The pub certainly had character and has a B&B facility for anyone wishing to stay in a quiet Lancashire village.

My wife and I had a rare escape from the 6 kids, so wanted to be pampered and looked after; we got it. we arrived at 6,30 on a gloious sunny Friday evening to be welcomed by AJ, the manager, with a genuine smile and friendly attitude, although he was occupied when we walked in, he very quickly took care of our room induction and talked us through the facilities and restaurant times. The restaurant has won the pub chef of the year 2013 - they deserve every bit of that accolade, the menu was sufficient, not over facing but with enough for you to ponder; the recommendations were fact based not finance based (he talked me out of a more expensive option for one that was 'more tasty'). The bar was full of locals and visitors alike, the staff were professional and amiable. Our room was tastefully decorated with stripped wooden boards, a very comfortable bed, enough wardrobe space (although open). Breakfast (Full English) was a work of art. I would definitely recommend this haven in the Trough of Bowland.

Room Tip: Room 4 is apparently the largest room,

Having now visited this establishment on numerous occasions, at different times of the week with various sizes of group I have to admit to a great experience every time.
The location is wonderful but not too remote. Do not be put off!
Inside the decor fits perfectly with the feel and the the mix of old school country pub with a subtle edge of modernity that is pulled off very well.
After MANY dishes I can confirm that the consistency and unique and vibrant approach to the menu is simply superb.
It is without hesitation to say that what is on the plate, in terms of taste and flare rivals some Michelin Starred establishments I have visited.
Marry this with a deeply warm and sincere welcome, a perfectly kept pint, an accomplished wine list (supplied by the imperious local wine merchants D Byrne & co) and a relaxed atmosphere and I am very luckily to live so close to an absolute gem of a place.
If you are ever in the Ribble Valley or Lancashire then do try and make time to visit as I am sure you will leave with great memories.
AJ, Stosie and the team deserve a lot of credit.
