Brizola Swan Courtyard Clitheroe 2nd December 2017

Brizola is a Greek style restaurant, which opened earlier this year, in the middle of the market town of Clitheroe, located in Swan Courtyard and is five minutes from the train and bus stations.

My first two visits, chef proprietor Rachel kindly created vegan options for me, but this week she introduced a vegan menu, with plenty of choice and now offers soya milk.

I will work my way through the vegan menu, but some of the dishes I have eaten to date, are listed below.


Mezze plate

Mushroom Stifado

Greek potatoes

Stuffed aubergine


Greek doughnuts

I have had the mushroom stifado previously (photo above) but last night both it and the stuffed aubergine were under cooked especially the aubergine.   I mentioned this to our waitress, who offered to take it away, but it would have taken too long to cook, so I ate what I could, a shame as the starter dolmades and mezze and desserts of baklava and doughnuts were really good. 

I love the concept of Brizola, with a young enthusiastic team, headed up by Rachel, serving what I can only describe as Greek comfort food.   I cannot fault the attention to detail, regarding my allergies and vegan dietary requirement and the food generally is really good, perhaps last night was a one off.
