The plate at Backridge Farm nr Waddington nr to Clitheroe is an excellent place to have lunch, we visit often & it's definately worth the journey there, this apart from delightful trough of Bowland. The Restaurant is casual being in a lovely Barn conversion. Their meals are good value, plentiful & delicious. The Menu includes soup, delicious sandwiches/panini's incl. gorgeous chips & salad all presented well. The Mains are different, there's lots of food to choose from & the welcome from Manager Dinoo is warm & inviting (hope he's reading this) We recommend The Plate to all our friends. Well worth trying & you'll keep on returning. In the grounds are Alpaca's..so cute & ducks. Also, gift centre's.

We found The Plate on Trip Advisor as we were going to Clitheroe for Christmas shopping. We were not disappointed. We had the Christmas lunch menu. Exemplary service and excellent food. Nothing seemed too much trouble and you felt that they really cared about you which is an indicator that they understand hospitality. The food was outstanding. Presentation exquisite, imaginative ingredients which gave superb flavours, good sized portions and most importantly high quality produce. All very reasonably priced. We will be returning.

Been twice for dinner in the last few weeks, and what a marvellous place ! The staff are extremely freindly, especially Dinnoo the Manager. The menu has a wide selection with surely something for everyone, and the food is delicious, and really well presented. Good quality in a lovely atmosphere, with freindly, professional staff, and not expensive. What more could you ask for an evening meal night out.

Since our last visit, we've been back to 'The Plate' twice. We aim to try each menu, but have only succeeded in trying breakfast (we will be going back for dinner at some point, but never manage to stay away until the right time).

First, we tried 'The Plate's Full Breakfast' - everything was lovely. The bacon is thickly cut; the sausage is thick, juicy and is very tasty; the chestnut mushrooms are nice, well cooked (not slimy) and quartered rather than sliced, allowing you to taste them; the bread was cooked nicely - the toast not burnt and the freid bread not greasy and doesn't shatter when you cut into it. The food is so tasty and really well cooked that you don't need any sauces or extra seasoning.

The second time we went, my girlfriend had the beans on toast and I had the Welsh Rarebit. Again, no condiments are needed as the cheese and the tomatoes have so much flavour and taste that they are all the seasoning you need. This is what good, quality ingredients is all about.

The taste, the quality of the products and the way they're cooked is a testament to the chef and his team.

Last, but not least, is another mention to the manager, Dinnoo. He's very attentive, extremely professional and always offers a warm and friendly greeting.

We have been twice now- this second time trying to remember how to find it again!! Not v well signposted but we persisted... The staff are really friendly and helpful and we had 2 different pasta dishes for our lunch- the crayfish and lobster linguine was stunning!! The decor is artistic but for a big barn, it still feels cosy. The art by michael bentley on the walls is sold next door and is not only complementary to the setting, but well worth a visit on its own.
We looked atvthecreviewsvfor bash all barn and we are really glad we found this again first!!! Fab! You must go...
