Restaurants in the North West recipes


From country pubs to premium hotel restaurants, the north west of England has an exciting and diverse range of culinary options serving both locals and foodies venturing up (or down) from further afield.

Visitors to Preston can enjoy quality British ingredients prepared with superb classic French techniques - and the odd bread and butter pudding, too - at Heathcote's Brasserie, while Northcote in Blackburn champions the best produce and regional dishes Lancashire has to offer. Two Michelin star L'Enclume in Cumbria, meanwhile, serves up exciting, modern cuisine against the stunning vistas of the Lake District.
