We have eaten here many times as a couple or with family & friends. The staff are always friendly & helpful, the food has always been excellent. There is plenty of choice, but they will also alter dishes to suit. Cannot fault the restaurant or staff, great place to eat.

This restaurant is often very busy - they must be doing something right as it has quickly seemed to grow in popularity since being taken over a few years ago. Thank... More

Had a lovely little pub crawl round the market town of Padiham and started the night off with a tasty meal at Summer Palace. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was lovely and the portions were very generous, we will definitely visit again.
