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.

    This meal was booked for my wife's birthday. We arrived in good time, but after 10 minutes is so, the restaurant manager approached us and said they had two groups of golfers, who were late finishing their game, so our meal would be late. We were given a dish of olives to eat while we waited. We were also given the menu to decide what we required. I booked this meal as I saw the al carte menu on line and liked it. The menu given to us was a Sunday roast menu. When I asked the staff for the al carte menu , I was told they didn't do it on a Sunday. This was not mentioned on the restaurants website. Also I have a taste card membership, which allows a 2 for 1 meal deal at participating restaurants. VARDENS is one, I informed the staff that I was going to use my taste card at this meal. I was told that you can't use it on a Sunday. I informed the staff the details were on an app on my phone, which clearly showed that it did. After going a way to check with higher management I was informed that I could. Not the best start to a special meal. When we did get to our table. The meal and service was very good

    We really enjoyed our evening meal on Sunday. Each course was presented well and was very tasty. We liked the extra touches of different breads and the choc/ fudge tray with the coffee and sweets. The service by all the staff was excellent.

    Always a pleasure to dine at Vardon's whether it be Sunday Lunch or weekday evening Dinner. The staff are very attentive and make you feel like a part of the family. The food is delicious and presented very attractively. For me personally, the portions are too big and I always end up leaving some and can very rarely manage a dessert!

    I have been to this restraunt many times and always had excellent service and quality of food, unfortunately this visit was not up to previous standards. The service was variable, quick to take the drinks order but slow to deliver, quick with the first course but very slow with the second. The food quality was also not up to standard, my wife and I had the roast beef which was tough and the potatoes were average. Everyone who had a starter was very pleased and the child's meal was also very good, it's just a pity the mains were not as good.

    I treated my mum to the afternoon tea as it was her birthday. Everything was fantastic. The room was very well set out to provide a spacious experience without being so close to other people and hearing their conversations.
    We were very impressed with the food as we were only expecting sandwiches and cakes. The soup, crumpets and teacake at the beginning just added that special something. The staff who served us (there were 2 young ladies) were a credit to the hotel as they were extremely pleasant and attentive. Although there were a few people having afternoon tea they made you feel that you were the only customers. We never felt rushed either.
    An extremely pleasant experience that my mum and myself enjoyed.
    I will definately return again maybe in the summer and hopefully will be able to enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace outside. Will definately be recommending you to others. Thank you

    It is some while since we last dined at Vardons and it has not changed - it is still probably one of, if not the, best restaurants in the area.

    Very pleasant. Food was good, presentation excellent, staff really nice. Pretty good all round. Been three times in last month. Only one thing I would say, the menu has been exactly the same and I should have asked how often you change the menu.
