The Whitaker

The Whitaker (previously Rossendale Museum & Art Gallery) is set in a beautiful park in the centre of the Rossendale Valley, Lancashire. The displays in the museum include interesting local history and a Victorian natural history collection.

There is also a very active contemporary art gallery with changing exhibitions. The main galleries have been newly refurbished by The Whitaker Group, who have exciting plans for the future of the gallery, the collection and the park.

From Friday 13th of November The Whitaker will be open on Friday evenings for dining, with a really tempting menu which will be revealed soon. Last food orders will be at 9 pm. That's Funky Friday with music and bar and food.

The Seasonal change continues on Sunday with the all new Sunday @thewhitaker kicking off with a breakfast offer 9.30am - 11.30am, sit back and spoil yourselves with an extensive breakfast choice. Then from 1pm they will be offering Sunday Lunch Whitaker style all afternoon.

If that isn't enough from the 11th of November they will also be launching a new lunchtime menu, with their new Chef, Phil, who is busy putting the final touches to all the dishes.
