Northcote Hotel

Top choice Modern British

in Forest of Bowland

One of the finest restaurants in northern England, Northcote's Michelin-starred menu is the unpretentious, delicious creation of chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen and sommelier Craig Bancroft. Duck, lamb, beef and chicken are given Modern British treatment and the result is fantastic. Upstairs are 26 beautifully styled bedrooms (£240 to £380), making this one of the northwest's top gourmet getaways. Bookings strongly recommended.
