Henry's Smokehouse Kirkham

New Louisiana and Texas Inspired Pub Opens to the Public

Henry’s Smokehouse, a new family-run pub and grill in Kirkham, has officially opened its doors for business.

The restaurant, located at the former Black Valais site on Fleetwood Road, is now open to the public and ready to bring a taste of Texas and Louisiana to Lancashire.


Henry’s Smokehouse introduces a mouthwatering US inspired menu curated by the team behind The Ship in Elswick, including consultation from chef Adam James Bennett (who previously worked under Marco Pierre White and was the private chef for the Moroccan King). 

The new menu includes a unique Brisket, which will be included in several dishes including the Dry Aged Beef Brisket lightly sauced in bourbon and barbeque; the Brisket Mac & Cheese; and the Smoked Brisket Banquette which can be ordered for groups of 12-16 people.


The locally-sourced brisket is expertly selected by a trusted butcher, offering valuable insights on the ideal fat content for optimal results in the smoking and dry ageing process. After being hung and dry-aged for 7-10 days, the brisket undergoes a meticulous 9-hour smoking session, ensuring meat of the highest quality.


Henry’s Smokehouse will serve their Sunday Roast with all the trimmings including proper gravy and fresh roasties. The Sunday meat, sourced from local farmers, will be dry-aged and smoked in-house in view of the restaurant guests, using the finest grade of Himalayan Salt to intensify the flavours. 


The restaurant's neighbourhood bar is stocked and ready to serve up a selection of delicious drinks, including milkshakes, classic cocktails, local ales such as Moorhouses, Farm Yard Brewery and Kirby Longsdale alongside a selection of American Lagers including Goose Island Beers and Brooklyn Lagers. 


Lee Hughes, founder of Henry’s Smokehouse, commented:

“After months of planning, we are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to the people of Lancashire to Henry’s Smokehouse. Our menu, inspired by the rich culinary traditions of Texas and Louisiana, is designed to be accessible and suitable for every occasion, whether it's a hearty family meal or a girls' cocktail night. We believe this is precisely what Kirkham has been waiting for and invite locals to drop by this weekend, whether for a refreshing drink, a bite to eat, or simply a nosey around the new space!”
