The Northern Resturant



Serving great Northern classics. The Northern’s menu is born out of the North’s rich history with an eye on 2020 ingredients.

Think of Rag Pudding, potted meats and fish, crumpets, egg and potato salad, fish pie, Reg Johnson’s Goosnargh chicken, dripping chips with cheese and onion sauce, salt baked celeriac, traditional English trifle and of course my famous Bread & Butter pudding.
