Definitely worth a visit for anyone touring the area; nice pub atmosphere with good selection of Bowland Ales. We had dinner and whilst the menu is quite compact, the options are not typical pub food but more on a par with a restaurant. And, what...More

Love this place, love the charm and character, love the warm welcome we always receive along with our dogs. Food exceptional, as always and all washed down with the correct temperature of wine. Thank you AJ and team.

A long spell of warm sunny weather decided to end on the day I headed up to Newton-in-Bowland so it felt decidedly chilly as I left my car and headed to the front door. No matter because inside the coal fire was being stoked and...More

We like the shabby chic, friendly manager, lovely fresh local food . Be aware, properly cooked food takes time to cook. This isn't Macdonalds, so wouldn't recommend if you need huge volumes of rubbish food.

The old man on the bar was downright rude and made us feel awkward. Needs some customer service training - reminded us of Fawlty Towers. The menu was very limited and the pub was shabby, there was wallpaper hanging down from the ceiling and mouldy...More

We went on a very long hike over the Easter weekend, so we were famished by the end of it. I think we hiked about 12 kilometres, so we were in need of food and drink. There aren't many places to eat in the area,...More

I always enjoy a meal at the Parkers Arms. It's a proper pub with really friendly owners, lots of character, good wine and beer, great food and open fires. Often there is a nice twist to some of the dishes with Stosie, the head chef,...More

Thinking of a special trip here for Sunday lunch following Olive Magazine's recommendation. We are coming all the way from Derbyshire, is it worth the effort?

A contemporary country inn with its fair share of history, The Parkers Arms is located just outside of Clitheroe in the prettily sleepy village of Newton in Bowland where, so we���re told ���you can hear the grass grow���. The beautifully traditional whitewashed inn, hung with colourful baskets of flowers and lined with parasol shaded outdoor tables, invites guests in with the promise of glorious regional food and a relaxed but sophisticated atmosphere ��� both of which it delivers in spades. The cuisine is rightfully British, with a few global treats of course, based on local and seasonal ingredients cooked using creativity and imagination as well as a little tradition too (and speaking of tradition we absolutely insist you try the fantastic Sunday roast here at The Parkers Arms). Pints of good local ales are joined by delicious wines from all over the globe, so whether you���re resting after a bracing dog walk or celebrating a special occasion, The Parkers Arms has not only the food but the drink to suit too. Indeed, balancing modern and classic style, informal and efficient service and relaxed and special food, The Parkers Arms appears to have created what could quite easily be the perfect local inn.
