I visited this place with my boyfriend on our way back from a country walk. I ordered the leek and potato soup followed by pork sunday lunch. The soup was served in a large bowl with 2 slices of warm bread, slightly on the thin side but I was satisfied with it, particularly as I needed warming up as the... More

very very slow service,some of our parties drinks didn't arrive, food was a long time coming, and when it did arrive wasn't very good. It's a shame because it's a very varied menu with lots of fish on the special menu, but unfortunately after our experience we won't be returning.

Questioned this at the bar on paying and the lady just said oh yes.,,,,no apologies at all so when they're making over £200 anyway and then... More

First visit to this converted pub. Very pleasantly surprised. Lovely decor choices of real ales and a great choice on the menu. The Sunday carvery was excellent value. If you are heading down the Blackrod bye-pass don't miss out on this gem.

The only critisim I have is the way a waiter spoke to me. He asked me if I had ordered mushrooms to which i replied no. He walked away and came... More

My partner had the King Prawns in Garlic and the Homemade Angus Beef Bacon Cheeseburger. All the food was well presented, tasty and great value. The... More
