GAV, vintageadidas........

Just been t'Cartford.

Top drawer.

Had the Venison stew special which was flawless (although slightly meagre at £13-odd). Also had a fancy Bread-and-Butter pudding which was quite honestly the finest desert I've ever had. :blush:

Fairly local to me living in Garstang, would certainly reccomend.

Regards

Pete

Not many Yarkshire puddings on here i know but i tried the excellent 'Theo's' in Hebden bridge at the weekend and it was excellent! I had the Lamb Kleftidos which was the finest bit of lamb i've had in a long while.Unfortunately there is no website for them or a Facebook page but i really do recommend them.For a starter and a main course it's not overly cheap at about £18 per head but i'll guarantee you won't come out hungry! Well worth a visit! :tu:

I also went to the 'Rose 'n' bowl' in Stacksteads for a carvery meal and the carvery there is second to none.Homemade Yorkshire puddings and a choice of 4 meats (as much as you want!) and the excellent homemade gravy really makes this place stand out.Anybody into a nice Sunday roast will not find a better one than this in Lancashire.

I went to the Strawbury Duck at Turton (though the train station adjacent is called Entwistle!)- superb again. It always takes me an age to decide what to have, as there are so many things I fancy on that menu!

I do need to have a do at this Oyster and Otter by the sounds of things. I was meaning to go the other week, but I stuck with the tried and tested Waddington Arms!

O&O is very good and from Bash you might be just as close going to the Assheton Arms at Downham. Personally I love the O&O but for quality and sheer good value I can't better the 'Market Menu' at the Butlers Arms at the moment. Two courses for £9.99 produced by an ex Ribble Valley Inns Chef is the stand out deal of the moment around these parts. Edited by thenodrog

Seafood Pub Company (i.e. owners of O&O and Assheton Arms) have bought the Derby Arms at Thornley (just outside Longridge), so there will be another choice soon.

Actually, not too sure about "soon" - I've heard it needs a complete new roof, so might be a while.

They also have the Fenwick Arms at Claughton near Lancaster and now the Farmers Arms in Great Eccleston.

Do they sell cask ales?

Not a fan of Thwaites Bitter particularly but Wainwrights is cask and seems universally popular.

Only problem round these parts is that it's universally available too.

I quite like most Thwaites ale but always feel a bit disappointed when I walk into a pub and it's the only ale on, as I like a bit of variety.

When you're out for a good meal, though, it matters less

Has anyone been to Alma De Cuba in Liverpool? Looks like a decent place thinking of trying it in march

Three times, normally taking USA work visitors.

Great setting, 4/10 for food which is generally poor and overpriced. Try the Monroe about 100 yards down the road which is far far better.

Richmond Tearooms on Richmond Street, Manchester are a lot of fun. Eccentric would be the word. Richmond Street runs parallel with Canal Street.

Love it. My wife and I go there. Did you clock the camp male waiter in tight shorts?

No but there were a couple of very camp male waiters. Excellent tea and I had delicious Welsh Rarebit followed by chocolate brandy cake. Hmmmmmmmm......

'Kickass Cheddar'  Love it.  I have some in the larder right now.  Must say it's quite rewarding to see you took my advice Paul. :tu:

Sorry Gordon but I was completely unaware of it until Saturday. I'd included a stop at one of my favourite cafe / farm shops during my cycle ride and they stocked Procter's cheeses.
