I could fill this blog with reports of meals at the Parkers Arms (follow me on Twitter for blow by blow details in the future), but I thought for once, I'd just present a photograph gallery of images from recent meals in 2013. Everything at the Parkers Arms is homemade (the only exception I can think of is the bacon and gammon which come from the excellent Roaming Roosters near Burnley), so rather than me repeating that in the caption to each photograph, please assume it.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed eating the dishes!

|Pastrami with treacle bread|
Stosie has now got her pastrami spot on, and as for that bread ... well that's almost worth the trip on its own.
|The treacle bread|
|Cheese scone with tomatoes|
On this occasion, I'd asked for a small tasting menu, and this cheese scone was the first course out: not something I'd have ordered, but it was jolly good - a very light scone with a nice cheesy flavour
|Beautiful buttery squid|
|Curd cheese with grilled white peaches|
|Cured salmon with horseradish cream|
|Wild garlic custard with chicken scratchings|
|Prawns and vegetables grilled on Stosie's new toy, a Primo BBQ.|
|Lamb kofte - beautifully and delicately spiced, excellent hummus, tzatziki and baba ghanoush in the little pots|
|Spicy BBQ baby back ribs. Fab French fried onions too.|
|Grouse done properly|
|The grouse liver, kidney and heart|
