About The Pack Restaurant & Bar

If you’re out and about in the Lancashire moorlands, head southeast from Blackburn to the village of Belthorn – the highest altitude hamlet in the region – and you’ll be surprised what culinary intrigue can be found among the weavers’ cottages. Up on Elton Road on the corner with Kendal Row sits The Pack Restaurant & Bar, one of this community’s small number of eateries but one that stands out for its predominantly Italian offering and sensitively revamped premises. A family-run affair, The Pack offers an approachable and affordable selection of dishes made with premium and locally-sourced ingredients alongside a carefully curated wine list showcasing various wines from around the world.

More about The Pack Restaurant & Bar, Blackburn

The Pack Restaurant & Bar is frequently buzzing with Belthorn locals and foodies down from Blackburn for a slap-up Italian dinner in cosy surrounds. Proprietors Karl and Jo-Ann, alongside experienced head chef Mark, gave the former Pack Horse restaurant a makeover in 2011 and, since then, this local landmark restaurant up on Elton Road has flourished, nurturing relationships with a tight and trusted network of suppliers to keep the kitchen stocked with the best ingredients.

Just a short jaunt south east of Blackburn, you can expect this rural Lancashire hotspot to offer you the best of Italian cuisine, with a little pan-Mediterranean flair thrown in for good measure (and a couple of familiar British bits and pieces, too). Kick things off with garlic bread topped with fresh chillies and tomato, patata alioli & rosemary of potatoes cooked in garlic and rosemary and king prawns cooked in garlic, chilli and white wine. For the main event, the best measure of the talent in The Pack’s kitchen are the authentic Italian options like the pasta and risotto dishes and stonebaked pizzas. Carnivores can get their steak fix with rib-eye steak or veal scallops, while seafood fans are more than well-catered for as well. Whichever direction you choose to head, make The Pack Restaurant & Bar in Belthorn your destination. Be sure to book ahead.

Great service and great food as ever. We love this place and would recommend it to anybody that loves Italian food. We had king prawn linguini, pate, chicken livers, carpaccio, king prawns and of course a garlic bread!
