Been a regular to roosters, today wasn't good. Service as always was brilliant. I had the rag pudding. It was awful, the ends were hard like it had been microwaved. Biggest shock was the chips, you cants get chops wrong.... they were. They were raw...More

I don't go there anymore, it's overpriced and the quality has deteriorated dramatically. Try the Forest which is very close.

We focus on quality ingredients, making the most of the free range meat from Roaming Roosters next door, and local sustainable fish from Chris Neve. Our menu enjoys hearty farmhouse dishes and modern classics. Dine indoors in the rustic country bistro, upstairs in the relaxed 'hayloft' or soak up the sunshine on the terrace. Available for private hire and outside catering events. Located in Higham, just off Barrowford Road, Roosters Bistro is a great choice for dining with friends and family, holding a meeting with colleagues, or a quick coffee and cake.
