The Pub Grub Revolution

(Extract from an article in BA Business Life Aug 2007) It is unlikely that anyone will arrive at The Highwayman other than hungry, which chef Nigel Howarth has opened with his partner Craig Bancroft in the little village of Burrow on the Lancashire/Cumbria border. Howarth uses his role as chef to enhance the produce of his 35 local farmers and suppliers, whose photos grace the walls and the table mats of The Highwayman under the banner: “Food with roots from out local heroes”. On offer are shrimps from Morecambe Bay, plump chickens from the Lowther estate near Penrith, a scrumptious cheese-and-onion pie made from Chris Sandham’s creamy Lancashire and, of course, Grasmere gingerbread from the Lake District, as well as a great rendition of Cartmel’s sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce. Just the food you need before setting off across those fells.
