The Project

The Punchbowl is a country pub in Lancashire with a long history in the region. It was first built in 1532, the year Henry VIII married Anne Boleyn. The Punchbowl of today has changed in many ways, but it retains strong local ties, particularly when it comes to the ingredients.

Head Chef, Dale Saxton, explains: “I’m obsessive about using local producers. Quite simply the taste is better when high quality fresh ingredients are used. Our customers tell us that every day.”

Local producers supplying the Punchbowl include Dewlay Cheesemakers of Garstang, Ribble Farm Fare of Longridge, Pugh’s Piglets of Bowgreave, Smoked of Churchtown, Drinkwater’s Quality Mushrooms of Hampson, Grace’s Goats of Goosnargh, and Walling’s Ice Cream of Cockerham.

The Punchbowl recently received the Highest Quality Assured accreditation from Taste Lancashire. Assessor Jean Morrissey commented, “The Punchbowl offers a very enjoyable experience in relaxed surroundings with professional and attentive staff balanced by warm Northern hospitality. Head chef Dale and the kitchen brigade clearly have a passion for food and inject imagination within their dishes and presentation.”
