Afternoon Tea for two
My friend took me here for a spot of Afternoon Tea. The place is cozy and the owners are very friendly. They have the picnic tables for the Afternoon Tea which was all presented very nicely, however, some of the food was not fresh and a bit stale.

Lovely mother's day treat
Came here with my children and grandchildren last week for my mother's day treat. I was very impressed with the service and overall experience. The children shared a pizza and 3 of us ate off the £13.99 menu (3 courses from 5 to 6.30) good choices. I had goat's cheese and canneloni. My eldest son went for a la carte and had garlic king prawns and then steak crostini, both cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant, please dont miss out!

One of Italy’s most visited markets is Sicily’s A'Vucciria, which translates to 'hubbub’. This word to us describes a humble place where you can enjoy simple tasty plates of food washed down with good wine and beer or even a cocktail. A'Vucciria will brin

Superb Italian tapas
This is superb bistro style restaurant featuring tapas-size Italian dishes. Everything we had was prepared to a very high standard: fennel sausage; Italian meatballs, and the monkfish (beautifully crisped fried tail). Each dish was distinctive to the other - no one-size-fits-all marinara sauce here. The dessert of poached pear was also a stand-out - very elegant, and well thought out - everything on the plate really worked together. I've had food of this type in bigger cities (London and New York), and the quality of this place was right up there, if not slightly higher. Service was friendly. Carafe of wine, 4 tapas dishes, 2 desserts, 2 coffees came to around 63 quid. Recommend!Wow! Thank you so much for your brilliant feedback. We feel very appreciative that you have compared the standard of our food with that of food tasted in restaurants in bigger cities!We will ensure all these fantastic comments are passed on to our fab team including our fab head chef! Thanks again for your wonderful comments, they are much appreciated, we hope to see you again very soon.

Excellent birthday breakfast
I called in for breakfast and had a bowl of granola which was delicious and very attractively presented, Greek yogurt was brought when i asked for it and it also came with a little bowl of seeds, pot of honey and mini bottle of milk. Lovely atmosphere and service. Good choice of other breakfast dishes my companion had crumpets with butter and jam and both had a cappuccino!

Not quite as expected
Our visit was Birthday Voucher gift. Haslingden is a small truely traditional Lancashire town, complete with cobbles and bendy streets. So far, unsurprisingly good and ripe for business development. We enter and join a small group of expectant clientelle. A small delay to prepare a table and in we go. A small room with a roaring open fire and a motley arrangement of varying sized tables. My chair was directly aside the flames of the generously burning fire, a tempting place for a sleeping cat or an elderly dog, but could have made the quotation "pants on fire" a reality. I excused my neighbour and relocated 90 degrees of the same table. It was a pleasure to see from a safer distance. I mention these comments, because, unfortunately our initial attendant who guided us to our table, disappeared, never, as it would seemed, to return. Our eyes drifted to the walls, to the ceiling and to other unrelated surroundings. There was certainly no expectation of service, menu, drinks or food. I can recall Lyons Tearooms in mid 20th century England, so I obviously have an eye and flaky memory of these establishments. However I do not recall walls and ceilings so enriched with darkening paintwork and curious trinkets, seasoned with fine layers of historical dust. The hands on the mantle-piece clock stood still but I was reliably informed by my wife,that we had spent 45 minutes in the company of a table, empty of anything that our voucher had promised.It was time to assert myself and raise my concern to the passing chef, who just happened to be attending to our adjacent table, who had uncovered a small moving creature amongst their desired menu. 15 minutes later we received profound heartfelt apology, two sparking Proseccos and two sparkling lemonades, plus a free plate of half a quartered pork/scotch-egg pie with pickled chutney.The remainder of the time passed away, quietly eating our way through the three tiered plates of scones, sandwiches and cakes. All adequate and on reasonable "par" with our discounted voucher.Overall I classified the visit as an "experience". It was sadly bitterly tainted by the hour-long wait prior to attendance and the puzzling smoke-like appearance room in general. Many others will disagree with my assessment, as the Tea Rooms do receive higher praises than mine and I am pleased they do, because I know life on the High Street is an unforgiving area for offering such a service.

Bumba’s is the bomb
Not only has this place got the best name in Rawtenstall but the food is amazing. So fresh and tasty. Barbecued meat is definitely their speciality however I have had their veggie burger too and it was really tasty. Definitely the best place to eat in Rawtenstall and the staff are really friendly and accommodating.

Fab food but pricey
Just been here for Sunday tea, ordered a roast and sausage and mash. The staff were very friendly and helpful. However, I just feel it was overpriced, the beef was plentiful as was the Yorkshire pudding, but the roasties and vegetables were not enough. The veg were tiny shavings of carrots, leeks, cabbage and mange tout, under the meat. Very tasty, but hardly there. I also expected vegetables to be available with the sausage and mash. My partner said that the bottom of the mash was hard. I expected a lot more for £14.95, fresh local vegetables are plentiful. The rating is on the quality of food and service, not the quantity. Yes, we could have mentioned it whilst we were in the pub, but we were both tired and didn't want to make a fuss. Hi RubyThank you for taking the time to leave us a nice review after your visit this weekend.We're sorry to hear that you felt the vegetables accompanying your roast were on the 'light' side. We like to make sure that all our guests are looked after to the best of our ability and so it would have been no trouble at all to have provided you with a little more carrots, leeks, cabbage and mange tout had you only asked us.We'd love to see you again, when we can perhaps make amends to your 4 stars and surprise & delight you into 5*'s.All the best,Dan

New to this area .. went for a meal last night for my partners birthday. Food was fabulous, large portions, the restaurant was pretty quiet as it was Monday evening but the staff were fantastic and talked to us in great detail about the different food culture ... Would highly recommend. Will be back very soon.
