The Northern


The Northern’s menu is born out the North’s rich history with an eye on 2019 ingredients.
Bold strong honest dependable are words that could be used to represent people or food.

Think of Rag of pudding, potted meats and fish, crumpets, egg and potato salad, fish pie, Reg Johnson’s Goosnargh chicken , dripping chips with cheese and onion sauce, salt baked celeriac, English trifle and of course Paul Heathcote’s famous Bread & Butter pudding.

The Northern is situated in the heart of Bolton’s Albert Halls designed with classic British colours, leather and stained glass, open kitchens and a lounge with domino tables.
It might even have a nod to flat clogs and flat caps.
