As part of our growing programme to provide valuable benefits to our club members, we are delighted to announce that we have agreed a link between our club and the White Bull Oswaldtwistle.

The pub and restaurant, on New Lane in Oswaldtwistle, has recently undergone refurbishment and has owners who have gone about transforming the venue into a modern and relaxing establishment, serving gastro-pub style food, and a fantastic variety of real ales and beers. The White Bull has received multiple awards in the last 12 months for the quality of its food, drinks and customer service.
The deal will see the White Bull become our lead T20 sponsors for the 2018 season and will see us working with each other throughout the year to provide our club members with opportunities to sample the fantastic service on offer. The White Bull are offering a number of benefits to our club members, including 10% off food orders on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, and 10% off drinks on Sundays on production of your 2018 GHCC membership cards.
We feel our club members will love the atmosphere, service and in particular the food provided at the establishment, and recommend that our players, members, supporters and visitors take the opportunity to visit the White Bull regularly to see for yourselves the food and welcoming environment on offer.
Here we speak with Kelly and Peter who run the White Bull, to provide more detail:
GHCC – Can you tell our members about yourselves, and what they will experience when they visit the White Bull Oswaldtwistle?
White Bull – We are a multi-award-winning business with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Providing cask marque accredited real ale, a gin bar & freshly cooked 5* food which is all cooked to order on site. There is a good selection of homely cooked gastropub food including our Breakfast service on Sundays 10am-12.30pm.
GHCC – You have recently won the award for the “Best Turnaround Pub” at the 2017 Thwaites Awards for Excellence – a fantastic achievement which reflects the positive changes since you took the establishment over.  For members that have been to the pub before you took over, what differences have you brought to make such a turnaround?
White Bull – Since we’ve taken over the business in September 2016 we have worked hard to change the full dynamics. We now offer food and a selection of real ales including our very own gin bar.  The outlay both inside and out has had massive changes enabling the White Bull to become family friendly orientated & a business that is full of life & laughter once more.
GHCC – Can you describe what it is that sets your food apart from others around?
White Bull – Everything we purchase is locally sourced from our fish to our meat. We make everything from scratch from sauces to our hand cut homemade chips. We cook our bread fresh on site which comes complimentary to each customer whilst you await your meal. We’ve racked up numerous awards with regards to our food & taken Oswaldtwistle by storm.
GHCC – What food and ales from your menu would you recommend our members and supporters try first?
White Bull – From our food menu, we would recommend you try our Bramwell sourced fish with our homemade chips, Whittakers Butchers Rump Burger or any of our award-winning lamb dishes (pictured)
To go with this, we recommend our wide range of cask ales, Birra Moretti for those that favour lager, and our Whitley Neill flavoured gins (with a wide range of garnishes) which are really popular.
