Whether you have a craving for something rich and spicy or you want to tuck into a hearty British roast, Accrington's restaurants offer a great spread of cuisines and dishes. This part of Lancashire is packed with Asian options that will delight even the biggest curry connoisseurs, but if you search on Quandoo's dining database, you'll discover all kinds of other possibilities. So take advantage of the diversity of your local area and dive into what is an extremely vibrant region for food and drink. There's some fantastic stuff to be had.
Some of the best restaurants in Accrington go back over a century and have been serving up pints and pies for as long as anyone can remember. The difference these days is that gastropubs like the Walton Arms have joined the vogue for high-quality British food, marrying wide selections of ales, spirits and wines with a collection of familiar favourites and less well-known native fishes. If you want a classic beef or lamb roast or a steaming Lancashire hotpot, these Accrington restaurants deliver in style, but don't forget to check out their American-inspired burger menus, too.
But if you're a true Lancastrian, you'll appreciate the virtues of Indian cuisine as well, and it's an area where Accrington's restaurants truly excel. The town has some exceptional Indian eateries which go above and beyond what you might expect from a standard curry house. Whether you are in Rishton, Belthorn, Great Harwood or the town centre itself, the options are enticing. Go for quintessential kormas with just the right degree of creaminess, or try something new, like Mumbai mackani – a tikka dish cooked with a dash of brandy to add a completely new twist to a familiar taste.
Wherever you find yourself, there will be somewhere in Accrington to enjoy high-class fare. Some of the best Indian restaurants are in Accrington town centre, right next to the mainline train station, but there are also Italian options in nearby Great Harwood and further alternatives in almost every town for miles around. Quandoo makes it simple to explore what's on offer. You can tick off every curry house, plan big birthday celebrations at European spots, or tour the region's gastropubs. Whatever food you love, finding a table couldn't be easier.
