The Bay Horse Inn

FORTON, LA2 0HR

In one direction lanes percolate through to the sea-marshes of Morecambe Bay; in the other the destination is the Forest of Bowland, a magical landscape of moors, crags and gorge-like valleys. Rural Lancashire at its most sublime. There's good Lancashire beer here too, from Moorhouse's in Burnley, perhaps supped in the extended gardens which lead to open fields where pheasants and deer can often be spotted. Mismatched furniture and a handsome stone fireplace with roaring winter log fire characterise the inn, offering a tantalising flavour of the small coaching inn it once was. The kitchen, managed by chef-patron Craig Wilkinson, makes full use of the wealth of produce the county has to offer. So from the concise menu be tempted by a starter of treacle-cured salmon with apple purée, samphire and radish; progress then to roast chicken breast with dry-cured bacon, mash, asparagus and truffle butter, and round off with warm orange and almond sponge with vanilla ice cream.
