About The Emporium

An eclectic mix of style, design, shopping and relaxed dining, extending over three floors of a historic old chapel in the heart of the bustling market town of Clitheroe

Housed in an imposing former chapel in the heart of town, the Emporium is part restaurant, part interior design superstore. Whether it’s a latte or a lunchtime glass of fizz, this bustling brasserie is not to be missed.

This elegant old building has been lavishly converted to create three glorious floors of eating, drinking and shopping. Part coffee shop, wine bar and brasserie; part interior design superstore, the Emporium is unique, with a bold, eclectic style which has evolved over the years.

Our coffee shop is a bright and airy space where the floor to ceiling bi-fold windows are often flung open when the weather permits. It’s the perfect location to grab a latte and maybe something sweet and sticky, kick back and watch the world go by…

The menu includes wholesome soups, salads, and sandwiches, our speciality stone baked pizzas and our popular cheese and paté boards – available throughout the building and throughout the day.

The Brasserie offers a more extensive menu that encompasses mezze and tapas-style boards and small plates, our perennially popular pizzas and a full a la carte menu: it’s the ideal venue for relaxed dining, whatever the occasion.

Rules and fussiness are kept to a minimum; we are a relaxed, informal eating and drinking experience. The Brasserie menu is served 12 noon – 2:30pm and 6:30pm – 9:30pm Monday to Saturday and 12 noon – 7:30pm Sundays and Bank Holidays.

The basement is home to Emporium Interiors: our chic, constantly evolving design space jam-packed full of interior design ideas and inspiration. Our Interiors team focuses on what’s new and exciting in the world of interiors and this theme spills over into the rest of the Emporium.

Out & About

The market town of Clitheroe is a close-knit community whose independent shops line the steep main street that climbs to the Norman Castle overlooking the valley. It’s a surprisingly cosmopolitan place with great shops, cafes and restaurants and the beautiful countryside of the Ribble Valley and the Forest of Bowland is right on the doorstep.

With an inviting selection of distinctive independent retailers, the town is establishing a growing reputation as a foodie hub thanks to a concentration of local food producers and excellent restaurants in the area.

Just across the road from The Emporium, the Bowland Food Hall is a showcase for the area’s food entrepreneurs, promising to showcase ‘The best of Lancashire and the best of beyond.’ This modern temple to gastronomic indulgence provides a platform for local producers to sell their wares in an elegant setting.
