The Rivington in June 2012, and have been several times since. We've used them a couple of times for cake club now, mainly because the rooms a spacious, clean and tidy, and the staff are so helpful.
There is a main dining room, but there are lots of little off-shoots which provide a little more privacy, or there is an ample bar and lounge if you prefer just to visit for a drink. There are usually three ales on pump and there is quite a large wine list.
We decided to stay for a late lunch after cake club last week. I had every intention of having something Slimming World friendly... it just didn't happen. I did see a lady having a fresh looking chicken dish, just as my burger arrived. The burgers are of a good standard for a pub in Blackrod. They come on a fluffy white roll and are served with crisp bacon, melted cheese and sides of salad, salsa and fries. It came with a nice pink centre too.
My husband had the hot chocolate fudge cake. No complaints here; it did exactly what it said on the tin. Soft sponge, gooey sauce and good quality ice cream (Mrs Dowson's).
