Between Blackpool and Preston, Bartle Hall is conveniently positioned for the M6 and the Lake District. Set within extensive gardens, this former private residence can be traced back to the 16th century although these days it’s a comfortable modern hotel and wedding venue. With double aspect windows overlooking the grounds, the intimate restaurant keeps things contemporary on the plate. Mackerel fillet is paired with beetroot and Granny Smith apple, whilst a seasonal main course of sea trout is served with cockles, brown shrimp, samphire and sorrel. Mango parfait, coconut, bitter chocolate and passion fruit makes for a more exotic finish.
