This small, family-run restaurant offers exquisite dining in Low Fell with a sophisticated atmosphere and a relaxed approach. The exciting menu showcases the chef’s skill, passion and knowledge, and is created using local produce where possible. Starters such as pan-fried scallops with cauliflower, onion bhaji and spiced shallot dressing, roast rabbit loin with potato, carrot, rabbit burger and jus are expertly cooked and sit alongside vegetarian options such as goat’s cheese mousse with balsamic vinegar, walnuts, crisp rocket, and shallot tarte Tatin. Beautifully presented mains include slow-cooked belly pork and loin accompanied by cabbage, white beans, mash, and black pudding Wellington, which is packed with flavour.
For dessert, why not plump for the sticky stout pudding with butterscotch sauce and salted caramel ice cream? The blackberry Eton Mess is a fresh take on a classic, comprising homemade meringue and blackberry sorbet, but my personal recommendation is the chocolate delice with hazelnut, pear, and praline ice cream.
Almost all dishes can be made gluten-free, and a vegetarian and vegan menu is available on request when booking in advance. If you’re planning a party, the team at 1964 is happy to accommodate with special party menus – just let the staff know your budget and they’ll do the rest.
