Visited on a quiet Tuesday evening with friends. Staff friendly and helpful. Food quality didn't live up to recommendations I'd been given to be honest. Friends eating the lamb said it was superb and the fish was good too. However Burgers were disappointing and the ravioli was a little over cooked. Overall food was okay but unlikely to visit again.... More

Eaten here a few times and always a great meal with friendly and relaxed service. A large family meal and we had our own area set up ready for our family & friends. A great welcome with drinks and canape served before our meal. Food was excellent and all dishes served together and hot and perfectly seasoned - Really impressed... More

The restaurant which is located in the Astley Bank Hotel is wonderfully light and airy and has delightful views of the superb gardens. There is a very good Table d'Hote menu for £26.50 and a more extensive A la Carte menu for the special occasion. The Italian style bread was light and delicious and then I had the Chicken Tikka...

Have just returned from enjoying one of the best meals I have ever had - and I've eaten around the world! My husband chose Astley Bank for us to celebrate our Diamond Wedding Day (55 Years) because many years ago he had business meetings there.The setting is elegant and very calm. The menu is varied and the staff are pleasant... More

Belated review from our visit in July 2013. About 20 of us went for Sunday lunch to celebrate my daughter's 18th. Food and atmosphere were excellent and the fixed price lunch menu is superb value. We kept changing the numbers up and down after we originally booked but these changes were professionally dealt with. If I had one criticism it... More

I have enjoyed many meals on several different occasions at this restaurant and chose it for my 60th birthday. It is consistently superb. It's a lovely old ( previously mill owner's ) house, set back from the A666, in lovely grounds. Staff are always polite and friendly and the food is delicious. It's always a treat to go there.

This was our fourth visit in three months so we knew what to expect and we were not disappointed. Everything is done well. From the canapes to the pudding wine everything is first class. The service is friendly and faultless, unpretentious but spot on. Far and away the best restaurant in the area.

This is the second time my husband and I have been here. We came both times for Sunday lunch. The whole duration we spent in the hotel was about two hours. They look after you really well and make sure you have everything you need without being in your face. The menu had a good.selection. The food was delicious, well... More

I love Astley Bank! Being ranked #6 restaurant in Darwen (at the time I wrote this) is not a reflection on Othellos restaurant but on the people of Darwen who value a cheap meal rather than a meal of quality! I have visited Astley Bank on numerous occasions and I have to say that it is the most consistent restaurant... More
