Rossendale Food & Drink Guide 2019

2019 Food Guide

There is a food and drink revolution taking place in Rossendale. As more visitors come to the Valley, new food and drink businesses have sprung into life to meet their needs. Over the last 5 years or so, the number of food and drink businesses in Rossendale has more than doubled.

Valley at Work, Rossendale’s business association, believes that the time is right to celebrate the quality and diversity of our food business community. The result is this food and drink guide.
