Finest Homemade Ribble Valley Family Fayre

Very much a family affair, Greendale View Kitchen on Chatburn Road, Downham, has re-opened with stylish new interiors, wonderful views and a mouth-watering ‘all day’ menu of home cooked fare.  Trevor and Louise Rutherford, who ran the popular Puddleducks tearoom in Dunsop Bridge for nine years, have taken over the business with their son Ashley  and college student Kelsey studing patisserie.

The menu offers breakfasts and lunches including sandwiches, jacket potatoes, ploughman’s and fisherman’s platters, pies, hotpots and Italian meatballs, together with a daily-changing menu of five or six seasonal specials, homemade soups and traditional Sunday roast lunches.

The main dining area  can accommodate 50 with long distance views across the Ribble Valley towards the Yorkshire Dales. The outsides eating area in the sun trap garden area shares the panoramic views. 

Highest Quality Local Ingredients

All the food is cooked by hand, from scratch, using local ingredients wherever possible and  Afternoon tea is served from 3.00 – 4.30 and offers a delicious range of home-made cakes, and lots of different teas and coffees plus Folkingtons Fruit Juices and Uncle Bob’s ice cream.

Organic Artisan Bread

Trevor is particularly renowned for the organic granary and other breads that he makes himself on a daily basis and visitors can buy to take home. 

Private Functions

We can accommodate 50 diners, with further seating looking out to the Yorkshire Dales in the newly revitalised garden area.  There is a lovely room seating 18 which can be booked for private functions.

We also have a take-away service for passers-by in a hurry and  provide outside catering for events.
