I wanted to like this place, but failed. Sorry. The food was OK in a pub grub sort of way, but the service needs attention - all a bit impersonal till it came for asking for positive reviews.

Lovely staff. excellent food and nice interior. A little difficult to find, but the actual location is good as there is easy access to Preston and the M65 and M6 junctions are 2 or 3 minutes away.

They most certainly are Dog friendly! ... Water bowl at the entrance and have sat with colleagues many times whilst Dogs and their owners sit in the lounge area. Hope this helps :)
