We stayed 2nights - never again. Locals call this place the Hammer House of Horror. Very dusty room, cobwebs hanging from ceiling, dirty grouting round shower, mastic round bath peeling off, bin not emptied, no toilet paper left for 2nd day, walls could do with lick of paint. The bed was broken and propped up by 2 crates (underneath and... More

My wife & I and our dog 'Jasper' stayed in a little cottage in the village and decided to eat here as it was only a stones throw from the cottage. We're both we glad we did as as soon as we entered we were made to feel very welcome by the lovely barmaid. We ordered something for evening meal... More

Rustic and a bit dusty but overall excellent value for money. Friendly staff. Quite clean apart from the obvious dust and the shower was needing attention to detail.. But nothing that a cheap bottle of bleach did not take care of. Breakfast was good but painfully slow in coming. Bear in mind that this is a holiday retreat and not... More

Visited several times for meal and drink. Meals average, pricey for what you get. Real ale, good selection of well kept ales, well justified to be in CAMRA good pub guide. Big bonus is that dog site are most welcome, free biscuits included.

Lovely pub, staff were nice and friendly. Evening food smelt and looked really good although we had reservations so couldn't try it :-( . Breakfast could had been better but it was more than adequate. Looking forward to staying again

My husband and I visited the Engine Inn most days during our recent stay in Cark, week commencing 21st March. On our first and all subsequent visits we were made to feel extremely welcome by all of the staff, especially the young dark-haired female who appeared to be behind the bar on most days . This is a typical real... More

My husband and I visited this pub having seen it advertised in a copy of Lancashire life. I asked for a diet coke which the lady duly poured, however I noted this appeared to be coke when watching her use the draft pourer. She then informed me that they did not have any diet coke (very strange?!) and asked if... More

This overnight stay was for our wedding anniversary. A beautiful 17th Century former Coaching Inn. Our double room was very clean and comfortable there was en-suite toilet and shower. We had a snack lunch, dinner and full English breakfast, all very well prepared and presented. The bar and kitchen staff were welcoming and very friendly. The hosts were again very... More
