Café Manager - Bowland Food Hall - Clitheroe

Company:

Bowland Food Hall is the most wonderful showcase for the very best of Lancashire’s food and drink producers. This modern temple to gastronomic indulgence provides a platform for local producers to sell their wares in an elegant setting.

Based in the heart of the market town of Clitheroe – noted for its thriving community of independent retailers – Bowland Food Hall is located at the gateway to the pretty rolling countryside of the Ribble Valley and the wilder, more dramatic uplands of the Forest of Bowland – a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is where much of our vast selection of meat, cheese and dairy products originate – keeping our food miles down to single figures in many cases!

Proud of Bowland and proud of Lancashire we may be, but parochial we most certainly are not! If we can’t source what we’re looking for locally we get the very best we can from further afield, regionally, nationally and internationally.

The Bowland Food Hall is a true celebration of what food and drink can be…of what food and drink should be… a delight for all the senses.
