Excellent food, catered fro my gluten allergy, friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Let me taste the wine prior to buying as I am quite fussy about the type of wine I drink

Having been given a present to have afternoon tea we decided, from the list of participating venues, to go to the Farington Lodge in Leyland. Having booked prior to out visit we arrived at the hotel and the reception took some information from our confirmation email. We were then shown through to the elegant room where afternoon teas were being... More

A group lunch meeting, booked by someone else, this was my first visit here. The private luncheon menu looked attractive when presented in advance, and I was spoilt for choice. I opted for the Cod and Pancetta Fish cake as starter, followed by Roast Salmon fillet, and an Apple and Raspberry tart as dessert, and enjoyed them all. On the... More

Staff looked down their noses as soon as we walked in the door and the service didn't get better. Food ordinary, dressed up as 'nouvelle cuisine' poor quality and small portions for a lot of money. Will never ever go back. Been a few times in recent years and spent a lot of money overall as we are always on... More

Having been to an afternoon tea at Farington Lodge last year, I was a little perturbed to read recent unfavourable reviews. I need not have been concerned. What a delight! On a very cold day, the roaring fire in the beautiful room was very welcome and gave a lovely atmosphere. From arriving to departing the staff were friendly and efficient,... More

I bought my wife a virgin experience day voucher and she decided she want us to go to Farington Lodge for a 3 course meal. The food was mediocre at best and there was no atmosphere at all, but the worst part was when the bill arrived and we were told that we had to pay a supplement for some... More

A friend of mine had recently become hooked on afternoon teas and whilst I have enjoyed them for years, it was fun to try out different venues with her. Farington Lodge was roughly equidistant between our two houses so we agreed to give it a try. It wasn't the best afternoon tea I've ever had but neither was it the... More

Was given a voucher to go for afternoon tea, the voucher had expired however the woman on the phone ensured us that this was okay so long as we booked at in time, which obviously we had done, however the woman who came to our table essentially accused us of lying, "nobody on the phone would have done that" -...
