Overlooking the rolling greenery of the golf course, Vardons Restaurant at Shaw Hill Hotel offers elegant British cuisine. As well as an opulent Regency-style dining room, a laidback bar serves an accomplished selection of world wines.

Offering time-honoured flavours with a distinct creative twist, the Vardons menu offers an adventurous selection of flavours. From delicate, palate-cleansing options to rich, gamey meats, Vardons Chorley prides itself on using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Presented with the utmost precision, dishes include twice-baked goats’ cheese soufflé, or succulent pheasant fillets with woodland mushroom risotto.

For something sweet, sample the indulgent flavours of chocolate and banana parfait, or lemon and raspberry panna cotta. Matched to your dishes by the knowledgeable maitre d’, special occasions can be marked with one of Vardons’ sublime vintage wines.

In an exclusive country club setting, Vardons Restaurant is housed in a lovingly restored Georgian building. Central Chorley is 9 minutes’ drive away.

    Christopher didn't enjoy his dinner of roast beef - it had a lot of fat and it was pink when he prefers old fashioned well cooked beef. I had pork steak which I enjoyed, the Black pudding mash was too much & unable to eat it up. We both enjoyed our tomato soup and the Eton Mess desserts also vegetables were good Lovely and comfortable restaurant with white clean cloths on tables. Waitress were very friendly and smart. We will come again but certainly wont be having riast beef!!

    This is the first time we have had a bad experience, we went for Sunday lunch usually it's a very enjoyable experience, our comments were made to Sarah on leaving. We await any outcome

    Although the menu looked promising the food didn't deliver on that promise. It appears that Vardons is going for a fine dining appeal without being able to make the grade, which is a shame as it does have potential to do so and if it could, the price would be more reflective, but at the moment it's pricing is a little steep. However, the food was very well cooked and the portions more than ample. The staff were very polite and the sommelier made a good wine recommendation.

    I booked the table on line, I asked for a window table. On arrival we were treated in a polite yet friendly manor. Lovely setting, bright cheerful, inviting. We both decided to have the beef this week, last week we had pork. The food & service were excellent. Rey enjoyable. Highly recommend

    We visited Vardons on Sunday 9th Oct to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were greeted by Jack who was very welcoming. All the staff were friendly and attentive.
    We both had a 3 course meal and we were not disappointed, every course was well presented and tasted devine.
    The restaurant itself was clean and well presented.
    I would've liked a little background music for a nicer ambience, thatsaid, it didn't spoil our visit.
    Thank you for an enjoyable experience and will recommend to friends amd family.

    A very pleasant Sunday lunch. The setting is lovely and the staff very friendly.

    Place was lovely, People were very nice & polite & food was quite good.
    However, there were at least 2 occasions when we felt we had been forgotten about.
    We were sat in the bar area without drinks for quite some time, even though they had been ordered.
    We saw all other dining groups receive an aperitif in the bar area, we did not.
    20 minutes between being given the dessert menu & finally being asked if we would like any is maybe a little too long.
    I think there was a large function in another room & maybe we suffered as a consequence.
