We spent some time in a little waiting room/bar area before being seated, though this was 15 minutes later than the booking time. Handy that we had the extra time as there is no lift (in a building young enough to have had one designed in when it was built), the stairlift is a long way away from the bar... More

A basic menu providing hot and cold meals and snacks mall food is freshly prepared and cooked. Chip portions are rather small and cheesy chips are not at all good. The view across the Lancashire countryside is lovely and Liverpool cathedral can be seen on a good day

Visited here with the golf society and the food is probably the best ive had at the many courses ive played at over the 5 years in the society. The evening meal was very tasty and well presented. If i lived locally i would definitely be back just for the food!

Decided to book a works party night at Houghwood for the party night. There were 15 of us in our party. The staff were efficient and friendly.
