Description: The Walled Garden Restaurant occupies the site of what was originally kitchen vegetable plot for Barton Grange. We felt that the garden with it’s mellow brick walls and pergola would make a good foundation for our restaurant – and we liked the idea of retaining it’s culinary purpose – so we covered it with a roof and filled it with tables and chairs. Diners can now relax over their meals in the conservatory, enjoy semi-private dining in the summer house – or even gather around the sink in the old wash house, should they choose! We are open throughout the day for lunch, afternoon tea and evening meals. Enjoy a bottle of wine from our extensive menu or to try one of the select few bottles of open wine & fizz see on our our blackboard menu. At the Walled Garden Restaurant we take great pride in using the best local Lancashire produce.

“Very good service and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Four of us went here on a fairly busy lunchtime. Very nice location, giving a relaxed feeling, this had been recommended by several people but we had been warned it could be expensive. The service was excellent , the food was very good. We had a superb white onion soup, chipolata casserole to start and a mushroom risotto, stuffed chicken and turkey pie to follow, which were all tasty. Perhaps the risotto was a little bland. The only slight moan we would have is that the tables are very close together. On hotter days with outside available maybe it would be better. The £15 mix and match 3 course option we chose was good value and not as expensive as we had thought. Many thanks we would definitely visit again.

“Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

We visited for Sunday lunch with my family and the food was excellent and great value. We all had the bistro menu which was 3 courses for £15 or 2 courses with 125ml glass of wine or 1/2 pint. All the courses were a reasonable size and all delicious. The menu changes everyday so there is always something new to try.

The only downside was they have recently changed their rules regarding HighLife Cards so that instead on Sunday-Thursday regular members can only get 2for1 from Monday.

Thank you so much for your review. I'm delighted you enjoyed your experience in the Bistro and enjoyed our fabulous £15 offer menu. We have indeed recently stopped the Hi-Life offer on Friday, Saturday and Sundays, however, we will soon be introducing our own loyalty card system where you'll still gain great savings directly through us. I will let you know as soon as the card is up and running.

Sadly the food did not live up to same high standards as the service. The menu was varied and enticing but the quality of the food which arrived was underwhelming..
