The Northcote Kitchens under Nigel Haworth’s direction have always had deep loyalty to artisan producers and the great larder of Lancashire, with seasonality at its heart. The menus have a core of flavours that need to be true, dynamic with a blend of modern influences. The ultimate aim is to delight our guests with flavours that are memorable, presentation that is sensational and an overall experience that lingers forever.
From Garden to Plate
The gardens are an integral part of the life at Northcote, a place for guests to relax, but just as important they are working gardens, producing as much as possible for the menus to reflect the seasons. For 10 months of they year the gardens, dependent on the weather, will supply: organic salads, vegetables, herbs and fruit which you can enjoy in many of the dishes. As Northcote develops over the next 12 months the gardens will evolve and become a place to escape the fast pace of life, with stunning vistas of The Ribble Valley and an enlightening culinary tour as you walk through Nigel’s kitchen garden. Under the watchful eye of Adam the Gardener and Nigel’s garden design consultant, Theresa Potter the team uses traditional British methods to maintain sustainability.
