The Parkers Arms is perfectly located on a beautiful drive from 12 Newchurch holiday cottage through the Trough of Bowland, described by the Sunday Times as one of the most beautiful roads in the country.

Under the direction of chef Stosi Madi, the Parkers Arms has won countless awards including Top 100 restaurants UK 2016, 2018 and 2019; Top 50 Gastropubs 2013 to 2020; Top scorer Harden’s 2011-2020; Good Food Guide 2011 to 2020; AA Guide 2013 to 2020 and many more. Yet it offers one of the friendliest and most unassuming welcomes you’ll receive.

The Guardian food critic Jay Rayner is a fan, remarking on his visit: “Look at this list of dishes: a sausage roll, a mushroom pâté, steak and chips, a pie. It’s nothing and yet it’s everything. Each element is precisely as you would wish it to be and how it so often isn’t… The Parkers Arms is almost at the end of the road. It’s on the way to nowhere. They do only what they do. And they do it bloody well. Though to find that out you do have to go there.”

Definitely not one to miss.
