Visited with my wife for lunch. Food was reasonable if a little pricey. Disappointed with the new potatoes, which were overcooked.

Put this restaurant on a par with Tiggi's and Mezzo. Still looking for a decent Italian having moved to the Blackburn area 2 years ago.

We were a family of four adults and two children and had booked for Easter Saturday. We were quickly shown to our table but given plenty of time to look at the menu even though it was really busy. There is plenty of choice and we all had different but the quality was exceptional. There was no hurry and afterwards the two of the adults had Aviation gin cocktails - wow they were good!!! Reasonably priced and I understand there are offers during the week

Despite the awful weather the place was heaving. I was concerned that the large party groups may slow things down in the kitchen, but not at all!
The staff were brilliant and attentive at all times.
The food was fabulous ... last time we went it lacked seasoning, but everything was spot on tonight.
Slightly on the expensive side ... I would say an extra £10 per person compared to other local restaurants, but as a treat, In would pay it and clearly others would too!

Booked a table of 6 for Mother’s Day for 7.15 and not seated until 7.50, not a great start. It probably took another ten mins to have our order taken despite having had our menus a good while before being seated. Waitresses all lseemed a bit miserable. Staters took ages to get to us and although no complaints there - other than the 6 (yes that’s right, 6!) shrivelled up tiny button mushrooms that costs £5.95 under the heading Garlic mushrooms, were Luke warm!! Mains were all bad except for one. The fish stew was questionable, the Tagliatelle Quattro formaggi tasted so processed and the seafood pasta dishes, of which there were two, were laced with raw spring onions!? Bizarre and makes no sense in a dish like that. Lasagna was also a flop as ‘very dry’.
As half the group are Italian, we question that the chefs knowledge when it came to Italian cooking, I’m being serious! Tomato and chilli pizza however was exceptionally good, due to wood oven I’d say. Harsh review but true. Won’t ever go back.

Haven’t visited the Pack for several years and I was really pleasantly surprised. Even though we hadn’t booked we were accommodated quickly. Lovely decor, bar area, ‘specials’ drinks menu e.g. Cuckoo gin with ginger ale and fresh chilli.
We chose to eat a bruschetta- delicious, a vegetarian pizza with added pineapple - yummy sourdough base and fresh tomato sauce and a skewer of chicken and chorizo on a bed of saffron risotto - moist and tasty. We’ll be back.
