What is Checks & Greys?

Checks & Greys is a modern and relaxing space where you can arrange to meet for either business or pleasure, enjoy a quick lunch or long relaxing afternoon with our varied menus of mouthwatering food and refreshing beverages.

We take our name from the Blackburn Checks & Greys – traditional weaving patterns for which the town was once world-famous. This forgotten piece of Blackburn’s history has been revived by our business, bringing the name back to the local community as a source of pride and achievement. Checks & Greys is a place for the people of Blackburn to enjoy as their own – to meet, eat, drink & relax in comfortable surroundings.

Independently owned and run, situated in the beautiful, peaceful setting of Blackburn Cathedral’s modern cloisters and overlooking the new Cathedral Square development, it is the ideal place to catch up with friends old and new. Savour a delicious dish from our breakfast and lunch menus, replete with the finest local & seasonal ingredients. Enjoy a Cathedra-blend coffee, expertly roasted by our friends at Exchange Coffee. Sample Blackburn Cathedral’s own Cathedra Gin over ice with a crisp tonic. Book your parties and events with us; you can come to us, or we’ll come to you. Relax and let our professional team look after you.
