Part of the Stafford Collection, this charming country house hotel and restaurant in the heart of Lancashire’s Ribble Valley delivers fine dining with true Northern hospitality. Overseen by executive chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen, who has led the kitchen brigade since the age of 23, the restaurant champions the finest local produce, creating a beacon of food and wine excellence that’s bolstered with warm and genuine service.
The Michelin-starred dining room is elegant, stylish and sophisticated, with views of the garden and distant hills of the beautiful Ribble Valley.
Having joined the Northcote back in 2001, Goodwin-Allen has developed a natural understanding of local ingredients. With her Northcote grounding she creates dishes full of exact and harmonious flavours, which draw inspiration from the landscape. The five-course gourmet tasting menu works with the seasons to bring out the best of every product, and the vegetarian alternative is no less creative.
The wine list is also treated as a vital and integral part of the dining experience at Northcote. Years of meticulous research, tasting and sourcing by Craig Bancroft and his dedicated team has resulted in an award-winning selection of wines, which pair perfectly with Goodwin-Allen’s food.
