Bistro 197 was originally located across the road from Towneley Golf Club where it quickly became Burnley’s best rated place to eat, renowned for its delicious food and its warm and friendly atmosphere provided by the two business owners, Dan and Natalie, who have realised their lifelong passion – to run a successful bistro in Burnley.
Having had two young children, Dan and Natalie were looking for a new venue to develop their art, and the closest possible venue became available. Towneley Golf Club is now home to Bistro 197, operated in partnership with Burnley Leisure, the two teams share the same objective; to run a quality bistro for all to enjoy.
197 Bistro & Bar is open Tuesday to Sunday 9am-3:30pm for what is rated one of Lancashire’s best breakfasts, along with a fresh, innovative lunch menu. Watch out for the Wednesday evening dinner menu and tasting menu that will re-start shortly.
