Home Cooked Fresh Food

Try one of our Traditional Favourites or select Something Special from the à la carte menu. We also have a daily Specials Board and local 32 day dry aged Holcombe beef steaks.

Remember that we make almost everything on the menu at The Shoulder of Mutton. And we make everything from locally sourced Lancashire produce wherever possible.

If you prefer a freshly brewed tea or coffee we do those as well. An ideal choice with one of our mouth watering hot or cold sandwiches.

And at the Bar . . .

. . . there’s a passion for cask-conditioned ales, from local micro breweries, that few pubs can match plus quality wines from classic Amarone Della Valpolicella to Spanish Albarino and Australian Shiraz. There's also a wide choice of drinks including fine single malt whiskies, liqueurs and fine Champagne.
