The contemporary and beautifully appointed Café offers everyone a warm welcome. Our team are waiting to look after you, while our chefs create home cooked and freshly prepared dishes with a Lancashire theme. Weekly offers include Monday’s Great Bait Luncheon Club, Wednesdays 2 for 1 on Main Meals, Fridays 2 for 1 Fish and Chips.
