Work's Christmas party

Fantastic meal with six work colleagues. Food fantastic as always. Waiter Service in bar and in restaurant not quite as fantastic as normal but certainly not bad enough to complain about - I think they were just having an off night. All in all fantastic.

I met my Darwen estate agency friend Paul for a business lunch today and I must admit I was rather impressed with lunch. Lovely sandwiches and chips to die for! Nice people as well in a fab setting

Well I must say I was expecting good things however I'm disappointed it's overpriced and poor quality and the staff were rude and uninterested avoid like the plague if you can and don't go for afternoon tea it's not worth the money or your time

I went here for lunch with my friend. We both like nice food and this is our favourite. It is excellent both food and service. There is a great choice with something for everyone. I had the Soup, then Blade of Beef, followed by the Cheese Platter. The soup was hot, tasty served with delicious bread. The Beef was just... More

Every time I go to this restaurant inside Astley Bank Hotel there is something different to try on the menu. Last time it was delicious pork cheeks this time it was salmon with crabmeat spring rolls on a bed of noodles. Sometimes the dishes seem a bit too busy and confused - like the chef is in the quarter finals... More

Clean, contemporary decor and spacious restaurant with very few diners on the evening we visited. Food well presented and was a good reflection of the taste and quality of the meal. Very fair pricing too. Would highly recommend dining here, especially if you are staying at the hotel. All in all a very good experience.

I regularly take clients here for lunch. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, the staff are always very obliging, it has a good menu with seasonal variants, there's never been a problem just turning up without booking. Nothing is too much trouble at all! The setting is lovely and prefect for business meetings. Will continue to recommend without hesitation.

Went for the Sunday dinner menu yesterday, three courses for around £23 per person. The food was exceptional, it's always good but yesterday it surpassed expectation! Service was excellent as usual and as always a lovely clean, calm and welcoming environment. Can't fault it!

Having had friends recommend eating here we decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was superb. Highly recommend.
