The countryside around the West Pennine Moors is an original source for much of the region’s distinctive and delicious food and drink.
Choose from the tangiest chutneys, the sweetest meats, flavoursome game, tasty cheeses and premium breads as well as traditional Lancashire delicacies such as world famous black puddings, warming hot pot, oatcakes, sarsaparilla and beer. And because the area’s best restaurants, inns and hotels are working more closely with local producers, you can be sure that an eye for quality and freshness is always assured.
The West Pennine Moors are also home to an amazing array of food festivals and farmer’s markets. Experience the Pennine Lancashire Food Festival, located in the heart of the Moors. Visit the farmer’s markets at Helmshore Textile Museum, Ramsbottom Market Place, Hoghton Tower and Bolton to sample the best from the area’s producers.
Combine the great food, wonderful views and the famous Pennine hospitality and you have a destination made in culinary heaven!
