Have been going to this restaurant within Astley Bank Hotel for many years and it just keeps getting better and better. We were given a private room, even though there were only 9 of us. The service, views, setting, staff and, most especially, the food were exceptional. It was a very special birthday for my sister in law and they... More

We visited Othello's today as a special treat to finish off the Christmas Celebrations before returning to work. We have been many times before so we thought we knew what to expect....... how wrong were we. We did not book and on arrival we were told to 'take a seat whilst they checked if they were doing lunch' the comment... More

We enjoyed a lovely early evening Sunday lunch with friends. Although the room was full and a private party was going on in an adjacent room the service was faultless. A full dining room on a Sunday evening tells you this is a top spot for locals. Food and value excellent. We finished with coffee and truffles in the louge... More

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
