Somewhere to eat

Does anyone know of any decent restaurants in or near to Burnley that is not either a Harvester/Brewers Fayre type of place or a Chinese or Indian

Pretty much your only choice is Aldos Italian restaurant in the centre of Bunrley, which is excellent:


There is Shalpa Indian restaurant on Barden Lane which is also excellent, but it's about a mile from the centre of town. There's also Shimla Spice and Aroma, both Indians near to Aldos, but they are considerably more expensive than Shalpa.

Otherwise, the only non-Indian places to eat in Burnley are the pubs and fast-food joints.

Try the Fence Gate Inn just outside Burnley, thats excellent food, independent and healthy. Nearby that, is a safe/farmhouse type affair called 'Roaming Roosters'. There is also Nino's in Cliviger (used to be the Fighting Cocks) or The Kettledrum next door. If you do your research, or ask a non-miserable local (pretty hard to find) there are some great places to eat in and around Burnley.

The Ram Inn is another local favourite (also in Cliviger).

Bertrams restaurant at Crow Wood is very good, the menu is varied and I have always had good food in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The evening is the best time to go as its used for spa guests during the day and there are a lot of people sat around in dressing gowns, which can be off putting if you are having a meal.
