A nature reserve has won a prestigious award for its cafe, that shows off the best of Lancashire’s food suppliers.

Brockholes at Samlesbury was given the accolade by VisitEngland as part of The Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme, in recognition of the quality visitor experience it has on offer

Kath Knight, General Manager at the Lancashire Wildlife Trusts Brockholes Nature Reserve said: “We are thrilled to receive this accolade.

“All of our meals are homemade by our chefs and we take great care to source our ingredients from the best of Lancashire’s local suppliers.

“We work hard to keep our standards high so it’s great to be recognised in such a way. If you haven’t been for a meal at Brockholes yet, I would urge you to try it!”

James Berresford, Chief Executive of VisitEngland said: “These attractions are all succeeding in ensuring visitors enjoy their experience, whether by providing a warm welcome, capturing the imagination with creative storytelling, providing a high-quality food and drink offer or ensuring an all-round quality experience for visitors.

“These new accolades reflect the wide variety of attractions on offer in England and provide the perfect reason to take a day trip or short break this half term.”

Brockholes opened in 2011 after £8.6m was spent on creating the nature reserve.
