Spencer discusses the restaurant and how it works to offer a versatile experience. “Nestled on the second floor of this extension, above the world famous Woodland Spa (this year’s Global Spa of the Year), Bertram’s is a 100 cover, adult only restaurant and cocktail bar with a separate dining suite. Our unique and modern restaurant is set within 100 acres of countryside with spectacular views of Pendle Hill, and the surrounding countryside. The magnificent floor to ceiling windows makes the most of this spectacular view. During the day, we offer an environment for spa dining, casual dining and business lunch; then at night the restaurant comes alive with an evening brasserie atmosphere that you could expect to find in the most cosmopolitan of cities. “A recent addition is our uniquely situated Terrace Bar nestled within the luxurious surrounding of The Woodland Spa. This Cocktail/Champagne Bar offers an alternative and exclusive evening to all our guests including a full schedule of live entertainment. The Best British Restaurant 2017 - Lancashire Bertram’s Restaurant, based in Burnley, East Lancashire, offers guests an affordable yet sumptuous dining experience.

Regular changing of menus, rewarding loyalty and consistency of food and service offering is very important when catering for all our customers, not just regulars and VIP’s.” Overall, the future looks bright for this exceptional restaurant, as Spencer is proud to explain in his concluding comments. “At Bertram’s, we are lucky enough to be a part of an award-winning Spa “The Woodland Spa” and are now currently developing a 78-bedroom hotel that will have its own Italian Restaurant onsite. Guests from the hotel will be able to indulge the adult-only luxury environment of Bertram’s restaurant or enjoy the family orientated hotel restaurant. The hotel is due to open in November 2018 and will offer us many great opportunities for further success.” “Our clientele has very high expectations and any restauranteur will tell you that they are exceedingly happy to have loyal repeat customers, but with that comes high expectations and more demands.
