Battle of the Borders

12th May 2017 - From 6pm
£25 PER HEAD

Living in Saddleworth, we are often caught up in a good old ‘Lancashire, Yorkshire’ debate. So we had the super idea of celebrating food from both counties, with the winners of each course being the county where the most dishes are ordered. The overall winner will be announced at the end of the evening. You may be in for a few themed surprises along the way!
