The Hairy Bikers descended on towns across Lancashire in an episode of the BBC’s The Hairy Bikers Go West.

Si King and Dave Myers, who was born in Lancashire, visited Lancaster, Aughton, Ormskirk and Tarleton, in the episode which aired on Tuesday night (February 20).

The finale of the show took the bikers to Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms, where they described a dish as “biblical”.

Meeting with chef patron Mark Birchall, from Chorley, Dave said: “Moor Hall is a 16th Century, Grade II listed building situated in five acres of gardens.

“The kitchen is run by chef patron Mark Birchall whose amazing skill has helped deliver two Michelin stars.”

Mark said: “We found this property and I could visualise where the kitchen and restaurant would be and what we could do with the barn.

“We make our own charcuterie and we are going to produce our own cheese.

“Even six years ago I could visualise where I was going to take the [business].

“You are picking produce when it is at its best and we [cook food when it is in season].”

Mark cooked a lobster dish, with a tomato salsa, for Si and Dave who described it as a “religious experience”.

Dave said: “That is biblical. You have lobster which we know is super high end and something special but the tomatoes are just as important as a lobster in this dish.”

Archers Café in Morecambe, Tarleton’s Croftpak Nurseries, Global Village Café in Lancaster ,Fiddler’s Lancashire Crisps and Mr Thompson’s Bakery in Ormskirk, also appeared on the show.

Summing up his experience in the show Dave, who announced his cancer diagnosis last year, said he was “happy to be alive” and back in his home county.

He said: “It is so nice to be back in what was my home turf… I was born in Lancashire.

“It is so nice how things have moved on and grown in Lancashire and how people are beginning to appreciate what they have.”

Si said: “It’s great that I am here with my best mate. We didn’t think this time 18 months ago that we would be back on the bikes again.”
