Restaurant description

A 15th-century manor house in rural Lancashire, Mitton Hall creates fine food using local produce. Showcasing stunning interior design, the restaurant serves rich British and European dishes, a hearty Sunday lunch, and classic afternoon teas.

From the flavour-packed Mitton Hall menu, expect the likes of pan-fried fillet of seabass with crushed new potatoes, spring greens and garlic velouté, or the Mediterranean vegetable risotto with parmesan shavings and truffle oil. Finish with one of the tempting desserts, including white chocolate, orange and ginger cheesecake with brandy snap curl, or apple pear and berry crumble.

Afternoon tea at the Mitton Hall restaurant is both relaxed and indulgent, with fresh sandwiches and a selection of cakes and scones served by the roaring fire in the main hall, in the bar, or in the elegant brasserie. When the weather allows, afternoon tea can be enjoyed from the sunny terrace.

Mitton Hall near Clitheroe is surrounded by idyllic scenery. Blackburn and Burnley are both a 20-minute drive away.

    Visited twice in December had festive lunch the veggie option which was very tasty my 3 fellow diners said the turkey was excellent and the Xmas pudding was the best we ever tasted. Next visit was for afternoon tea which was for 6 and all agreed it was perfect and an experience to repeat next year. The staff are all brilliant nothing is too much trouble for them and all served up with a wonderful sense of humour. Ten out of ten!

    Service was very slow. They were short staffed apparently. Food was good but wasn’t very warm at all.

    We came here looking for a potential wedding venue and had a great friendly welcome by reception as we made our way to the restaurant. We had some beautiful food, however the service could be a little more attentive. First drinks took a while and the staff were young and therefore a little shy/timid. The roast could’ve been a bit hotter as it was on the lukewarm side. Gorgeous place though and the free bread was a bonus! :)

    The filet Mignon and brisket literally melted in the mouth - DELICIOUS!! Service good, although the waitress forget to ask for a wine order to go with the meal. Location/ interior is wonderful.

    We have been here before and once again enjoyed meeting with friends from the north of Manchester for a Sunday Lunch. All three courses were good. the only minor gripe was that the service was slightly off the boil with over long times to get condiments and drinks. Not withstanding this is a Hotel we enjoy visiting and would recommend.

    First visit for four of us. Splendid surroundings, welcoming and friendly staff across the board. Lovely afternoon tea, nice variety and beautifully presented. Will certainly be back to try the main menu.

    Very accommodating! Plenty of veg options, loved all the food especially the homemade mixed berry jam that came for the scones, and service was fantastic :)
