The Corner House dates from the 1830s and stands out on Wrightington Bar with its white and blue paint job and neatly trimmed creepers. The kitchen meets the expectations of those after traditional pub grub, while satisfying those seeking something more unusual. So you might start with an old classic (prawn cocktail) or a modern one (Goosnargh chicken liver parfait with onion marmalade and toasted brioche), and move on to fish and chips or tender braised ox cheek with a rich, glossy port jus. Steaks cooked on the grill arrive with mushrooms stuffed with brie, onion ring and chips, while, for dessert, crème brûlée comes with a home-made cookie.
