Food Hall

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.

We’ve got everything from fabulous foodie gifts and hampers to delicious dishes for your Christmas table, plus a whole host of seasonal treats in the cafe.



The Food Hall selection of hampers showcases the best produce from Bowland, from Lancashire and beyond. Each hamper is beautifully presented and will appeal to recipients of all ages and tastes. From a Boozy Boys beer lovers hamper to something a little more celebratory with Champagne and chocolates, there's a superb range to choose from.

Christmas Goodies

As a wise woman named Julia Child once said, "people who love to eat are always the best people." We couldn't agree more!
From amazing produce sourced right here in Lancashire to a fabulous selection of goodies from further afield, whatever your foodie passion pop in to see us we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.

Christmas Food Orders

To place your orders for the best meat, cheese and pies in the county simply pop in and have a chat. Or take a look at our produce guide to peruse the full range.
You could even have a seat and enjoy a tasty nibble or two while working out exactly what you might want...perhaps with a nice coffee or glass of wine to help with the thought process!

Gift Vouchers

If you are shopping for a tricky friend or family member and just cannot decide what to buy, why not let them choose their own perfect gift! With a range of gifts and experiences there is something for everyone. Give them a special treat of afternoon tea, or a stay over in luxury accommodation at one of our James’ Places venues. The James’ Places gift cards come in an array of beautiful designs, delivered to you in a sleeve which you can add your own personal message.
