The nominations for the 2013 Lancashire Life Restaurant of the Year. The winner announced at the Hilton Hotel, Deansgate, Manchester, on Monday October 28th 2013
Angels Restaurant, Ribchester
Unashamedly decadent, this stylish restaurant is a little bit of heaven in the Lancashire countryside. From the decor to the food there is a fantastic attention to detail with a chef who knows how to marry top-class ingredients to produce plates of food in a chic and cosmopolitan style. Seasonally-inspired dishes on a regularly changing innovative menu.
The Corner House, Wood Lane, Wrightington.
Built in the 1830s, it has been a hostelry, wheelwrights and smithy but is now forging a new career as a pub-restaurant. Formerly known as The Mulberry Tree, it became an award-winning pub-restaurant and the new owners Ross Lowson and Helen Hunter are building on that excellent foundation with plans for themed menu evenings, and monthly music events.
The Red Cat. Whittle-le-Woods, Chorley.
Brothers Mike and Chris Rawlinson are the driving force in this rural restaurant, a previous Lancashire Life winner which has been delighting customers since 2006. Chef Chris produces sumptuous regionally sourced modern British dishes but with strong French influences. Mike runs the front of house like clockwork as you would expect from an Ironman champion.
