Returning to the Ribble Valley from Australia, chef Tom Byrom is bringing his signature flair and flavours to Clitheroe restaurant The Villa.

Established for over 10 years, The Villa has built a reputation for authentic, rustic Italian and Mediterranean food served in their charming candlelit restaurant.

The recent appointment of Head Chef Tom Byrom marks a new direction for the menu, with an emphasis on the true flavours of the food with a fusion twist.

“The new menu features the pizzas and pastas that people expect from an Italian restaurant, alongside new dishes that bring those authentic flavours of Italy but with a twist on the traditional,” Tom explains.

“We make everything in-house, from our famous pizza dough to pasta and desserts, and we only use the freshest produce from trusted local suppliers. The Ribble Valley has so many excellent producers and we want to champion that. We also source the finest Italian products, from cured meats to Prosecco, so customers know they are getting the most authentic experience.”

Alongside the updated menu is an extensive wine list featuring both Italian and New World wines, as well as a selection of spirits and Proseccos.

The Villa also has an intimate private room and relaxing bar area that comfortably seats up to 20 for any occasion. Owner Pino tells me: “We can cater for any requests, from tapas and sharing platters to a full roast dinner. It’s the ideal place for a celebration with family and friends.”

Pino summarises: “We are really excited to be taking the restaurant forwards in this new direction whilst retaining the high-quality food and service that we are renowned for.”
