Hotel Dining

Our Food Philosophy

We only use fresh, seasonal ingredients produced by the finest artisan suppliers in the area or foraged from our own 22 acres of grounds.

Our food is earthy, honest and completely representative of the stunning landscape we work within, the fantastic local suppliers we use and our head chef’s dedication to creating spectacular food. If you were to take a bite out of Lancashire, this is how it would taste.

PRIME Restaurant

A Destination Dining Experience

Atmosphere, service and attention-to-detail – combined to deliver a destination dining experience, from a light lunch to an evening meal.

Seasonal, Local Fare

Local knowledge and experience help us source the best in both quality and value, right on our doorstep, to create food our guests love, all year round.

Proud to be Prime

From friendly front-of-house staff to kitchen perfectionists, our pride in what we do is reflected throughout the Prime dining experience.

Eat, Drink, Stay

No need to worry about making way for the next timeslot – once you’ve booked, just relax and appreciate some great local cuisine while we take care of everything to make your stay a special one.
