The black bull pub in the small village of Langho is five miles from the town of Blackburn.
The pub has a small dineing room,and bar,with a large split lounge area.
the whole place has a very relaxed feel and restful look about it.There are a varied array of old pictures on the walls and art bric-brac around the rooms.There is also a pub ghost along with a historic tale.
Well worth a visit.
Favorite Dish: The menu has a large choice of dishes,rangeing from a good selection of starters and platters to share.
The main dishes are very varied and offer a great choice .The menu also offers a good salad selection,and side orders are plentiful.
I have only visited this pub the once for lunch but saw a good deal of food been served,i ordered a garlic mushroom ,followed by a small rump steak .Both were realy nice.
My wife had homemade pate followed by a chicken and bacon salad and was very pleased by both, and to follow that a cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding .
There’s no pier at Morecambe anymore but jutting out into Morecambe Bay from behind the newly restored Midland Hotel there is a stone jetty and on the jetty is the imaginatively named Stone Jetty Café. You can't miss the cafe (the fact that it is part lighthouse helps) and if you aren’t looking for gourmet food this is as good a place as any to have your lunch while you are in the town.
It only opens in the day time, the food is basic – sandwiches, baked potatoes, chips, burgers etc it’s well cooked and well presented. It's not an upmarket place, you don’t book a table and you can just have tea, coffee or icecream if you like.
It’s sort of semi-self-service, you go inside to order and are given a number and you sit down either inside or if the weather is ok you can sit outside on plastic garden furniture, when your order is ready someone will come out, yell your number and bring your order.
Maybe the Stone Jetty’s biggest asset is the bay, on a clear day the views from the jetty are quite staggeringly wonderful (as long as you don't look back towards Morecambe) and even if you don’t eat you should have a walk along.
The railway once ran along the jetty from where you could pick up an international passenger steamer, the cafe is the old station and there are pictures on the wall which will give you some idea of the buzzing place this once was.
Favorite Dish: I usually have a baked potatoe with prawns, the cakes are pretty wonderful.
A shop not a restaurant, if you are visiting for the day and want to grab something to eat outdoors Potts Pies are something of a local delicacy (maybe second only to Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps).
Favorite Dish: Pies
Morecambe Tandoori (resturant and take away) serves the best India food in town. It’s often busy, particularly at weekends so it might be a good idea to ring and reserve a table. They don’t have a licence to sell alcohol but you can bring you own wine and they will serve it, there is an off licence just round the corner in Regent Road.
Fans of Chinese food rave about the Honey Tree, it’s a big place (for Morecambe) the atmosphere and the service is good, the food is ok too but it aint cheap.
