This was my first visit to the Hesketh Arms, as we were in town visiting family. A true gem of a pub, with a warm welcome and extremely friendly staff. 6 of us had booked a table for a family meal, and the service was quite simply second-to-none. The food was first rate; and of quality and presentation you could... More

Really nice historical pub that has lost none of it's charm over the years - lovely staff and great service. Forms a really nice little hub around the village green after a stroll in the nearby botanic gardens

Had a great time, very homely atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming and helpful, although I think it's gone abit exspensive for the food.
