My wife and I visited Othellos at Astley Bank for Sunday lunch. The lunch at £23 a head is excellent value for money. A three course dinner with coffee and truffles. The meals are well presented and are cooked by the excellent chef to perfection. The restaurant is always well attended each and every time we have visited. The staff... More

This was our first visit having been treated to the meal as an anniversary present by friends who are regulars. It turned out to be a very good present. We dined on a Friday evening as Saturday's seem to be booked up with wedding receptions and I can understand why as the grounds are beautifully kept and it is a... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. The food was as beautiful as ever. Beef blade was gorgeous. I believe it's changed hands, but the same staff remain. Waiter forgot our coffee, but other than that, it was great.

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
