About Northcote

Northcote is a luxury country house hotel and restaurant nestled in the heart of the picturesque Lancashire countryside. It is the perfect blend of discreet English ambience with subtle contemporary touches to meet the demands of the modern traveller.

Refined Michelin-starred cuisine and sophisticated, individually styled rooms and suites combine to make Northcote one of the UK’s leading gastronomic destinations.

The hotel offers 26 individually styled luxurious bedrooms, including eight suites in the separate Garden Lodge. Northcote's restaurant is renowned for its fine cuisine and serves traditional Lancashire recipes with a modern twist, created from local produce. To add to the experience, the Chef’s Table, in the kitchen, offers insights into how the kitchen really operates, and the Cookery School provides a unique and intimate experience where you can learn new skills and dishes in a Michelin star kitchen.

Nigel Haworth is regarded as one of the greatest British chefs practising in the UK. He has led Northcote’s cuisine since 1984 which has become one of the most respected British kitchens with its true heart in regional artisan production, executed with outstanding gastronomic flair. Nigel has held a Michelin star since 1996.

Craig Bancroft arrived at the Northcote in 1983 as General Manager, one of the youngest to hold such post at this time, earning him a Caterer & Hotelkeeper Acorn award in 1987. Renowned for his food knowledge, but more for his reputation for pairing Northcote’s cuisine with wines from the award-winning wine list.
