    Rose and Crown Hotel: Centrally Located, Family friendly.

    by nickandchris Updated Apr 22, 2014

    After our meander around the castle and before our planned walk, we were ready for lunch. We could actually only find three pubs serving food and in the end, opted for the Rose and Crown as it served two different sizes of portion.

    On first entering, we thought the place gloomy but this was only because we had come in from reading the white menu board in brilliant sunshine and become somewhat dazzled.

    The pub is large and appeared to have two different eating areas, the main bar and a slightly raised area to the right of the door.

    Most tables were occupied and when we had finally made our food selections, were told there would be at least half an hour's wait as there was only one chef in. Not to worry, we weren't in any desperate hurry. In the end, it turned out to be some 40 mins or so before the food arrived. We had been warned.....

    Favorite Dish: Two of our party chose the smaller portion of gammon, egg and real chips, which came with a dish of separate vegs, albeit five minutes later as they had been forgotten. At £4.95 this seemed good value and there were murmers of appraisal.

    Nick chose the small portion of scampi and chips, served with salad.(£4.80.) He enjoyed this and said the chips were really good (real chips, not frozen.)

    I opted for a cheese and tomato and onion salad, served with bread. I had to ask for the bread as it was forgotten and I have to say, I was a little disappointed in this salad. I would have expected tomato and onion in any salad so it was only really the cheese that was the extra and this was just a portion of grated cheese.I would really have liked a ploughman's so thought this was the nearest option. I had thought there might be a few interesting leaves and maybe a bit of fruit or a radish, but it was all very ordinary with iceberg lettuce only. I have forgotten the price, around the £6 mark I think, so the dearest of our choices. I think I had chosen the wrong meal and I dare say other folks would have been suitably satisfied with this as a salad.Sadly, I wasn't, whereas everyone else were pleased with their choices!

    Service was good and the place had a friendly atmosphere.

    Waddington Arms: Fine food in the village

    by mickeyboy07 Updated Sep 7, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very traditional village pub situated in the heart of the village of Waddington just ten minutes drive from Clitheroe.An old world feel to the pub which is also a guest house and restaurant.
    The service is very good as is the food,with plenty of choice ranging from pub snacks to three coarse meals.However we felt it was little pricey coming to over twenty pounds for basically two sandwiches and a side order of chips and two drinks.
    There are six rooms available for over night stays,£47.50 for a single room and £65.00 for a double.

    Favorite Dish: I had the roast beef sandwich on wholegrain bread with mustard and salad,my partner had the cajun chicken and bacon sandwich with salad and a side dish of chips.

  • Exchange Coffee Co: Coffee shop with character

    by MartinSelway Updated Oct 17, 2004

    Enter the shop and smell the coffee!

    The shop is packed with everything you could want or need to do with tea or coffee. There is a full range of accessories, cups, equipment etc. and also a wide range of teas and coffees that you can buy loose. Needless to say, they roast their own beans and you can have them ground to your likeing.

    In the back is a coffee shop, which extends to the upper floor. Although somewhat cramped, it is cosy and my idea of what a coffee shop should be like.

    Help yourself to one of the newspapers to read if you like.

    Favorite Dish: There is a surprisingly wide range of snacks.

    You won't be able to miss the sweeks display with a yummy selection of deserts to accompany your coffee.

  • The Calfs Head: Country Pub thats got the lot

    by MartinSelway Written Oct 3, 2004

    The Calf's Head is described (by themselves) as a 'Country Restaurant Hotel and Watering Hole'.

    We have being going here for a number of years, and is a favourite of ours. They have the restaurant, various rooms, bar, large conservatory. They also have a cracking walled beer garden with a stream that runs through it, that is both a sun trap and perfect to let the kids wander off and play in. It has the feeling of a large orchard. The ducks waddle around the place and among the fruit trees.

    The beer garden is a favourite setting for wedding photos, with a senic wooden bridge over the stream and the restaurant is often full of wedding reception parties on weekends.

    Favorite Dish: We always eat in the pub side - less formal and better value. They do a great selection of main courses or a variety of snack items. A favourite is to order a selection of vegetable crudités, bread sticks & dip; chips; potato skins & Sour cream & cheese sandwiches.

    The sandwiches deserve a special mention because they are the best you'll get in any pub - beautiful fresh bread hand cut into generous slabs of bread, massive slices of cheese (none of that grated rubbish), served with a salad garnish and a small pots of their fabulous homemade apricot chutney and pickle: outstanding!

    The deserts are first class. We can vouch for the banoffee pie.

    The beer is good too - I can particularly recommend the Jennings Cumberland Ale on hand pull.

    Calf's Head, Worston
