Great cask ales as cheap as chips, rough and ready but a must for all visitors to the area. The couple in charge are lovely and seem to have been around for ever.

The bar is only half the ground floor of this large old house sat in its commanding looking out over Silverdale. Real ales... More

Lots of beer to choose from, lack of customers and remote location makes it short of ambience. Can't see myself trekking up here again
