Church Lane, Mellor, BLACKBURN, BB2 7JR
Owned by Thwaites Brewery, whose ales are at the pumps, it's not all about beer at this old coaching inn. It also deals in feel-good menus that offer up pub classics, lunchtime sandwiches, locally sourced steaks cooked on the grill, and a few global flavours. Begin with a charcuterie board or go for duck spring rolls with plum sauce. Main courses can be as traditional as home-made burger or breaded chicken with garlic and herb butter. Those steaks are aged for 28 days - flat iron, maybe, or 8oz rib-eye - and come with flat-cap mushroom, baked tomato and thick-cut chips. Among desserts, sticky toffee pudding shows the style.
