Menu of the Moment at Northcote Restaurant Chef’s Table

An Oasis of Food, Wine and Hospitality 

Located on the edge of the beautiful Ribble Valley, surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens, you will find a striking Victorian red brick country house. 

Northcote is not only renowned for its picture perfect location but also for its award-wining, Michelin Star restaurant. Elegance, sophistication and style – from here you can enjoy the amazing views of Northcote’s manicured grounds and Ribble Valley, just off to the distance. 

The menus are always changing, created by Nigel Howarth, the wine carefully selected by Craig Bancroft and the kitchen is looked after by executive head chef, Lisa Goodwin-Allen and head chef, Aled Williams. 

With such a fantastic team, expect fine dining with true, professional Northern hospitality! 

The Northcote Approach
Under Nigel’s direction, the Northcote kitchen has always had deep loyalty to artisan producers and the great larder of Lancashire, with seasonality at its heart. 

The ultimate aim is to delight guests with flavours that are memorable, presentation that is sensational and overall experience that lingers forever. 

From Garden to Plate 

The gardens are an integral part of life at Northcote. Not only are they a place for guests to relax and enjoy but they are working gardens too – producing as much as possible for the menus to reflect the seasons. 

The gardens supply a variety of produce for the Northcote restaurant, including organic salads, vegetables, herbs and fruit. Watch out for these on the menu! 

Be in Awe of the Northcote Team  
You can dine in the heart of Northcote, where all the action takes place – on The Chefs Table. 

This is an interactive experience, giving you insight into the action and theatrics of a Michelin Star kitchen. With uninterrupted views of the kitchen, you can witness the vibrancy, drama and skills required to make your menu. 

You can even touch, feel and smell the heart and soul of the Northcote kitchen. Be prepared to be wowed by the precision and energy of the Northcote brigade. 

Eat. Drink. Sleep. Relax
Enhance your dining experience at Northcote and stay the night. As well as its beautiful restaurant and stylish cocktail bar, the country home provides 26 luxurious rooms, each with its own individual character and style. 

Guests can also wake up to Northcote’s famous Lancashire breakfast.
