I do not normally write reviews but I have got to say I'm really frustrated. After seeing the excellent reviews posted on facebook we decided to go. Big mistake! The roast beef was like leather and the food was almost cold worst sunday lunch in a long time. Took ages for our food to arrive and it wasn't worth the... More

Hi and thanks for your review. A couple of issues bother us here. The first is that we havent served roast beef for over 3 weeks. The second is that after a local price review 2 weeks ago, we are the cheapest in the area in respect to a 'typical' round of drinks. Thirdly we are unaware of any issues... More

Thought we'd try here again as a lot of hype about it locally. Well belive me, it stood up to it!! Outstanding food again that I've not seen outside of a city before. Superb from starter through to deserts. And the larger was great. Even 3 hop boutique lager was on!!! Oh Hob, how I've missed you. See you at... More

My husband and I called in here for lunch. We were given a friendly welcome and decided to have a few drinks before we ate - you must try the guest ales! The menu has some traditional Lancashire favourites on it - which was good to see. The food was well presented and cooked to perfection. Overall I could not... More

Hi and thanks for the review. We were, as you no doubt noted, very busy on Saturday and if not previously booked, can have a wait with our 'walk ins'. However always welcome of course. We did actually have 2 chefs and an assistant but one is being trained as well. Thank you for saying what you did have was... More

This is an attractive thatched pub though the inside is not as attractive as the outside. Very warm welcome from friendly staff, though rather too many dogs inside I thought for an eating place. Good choice of wine and guest ales and a large menu choice which turned out to be fairly basic cooking but extremely plentiful portions at very... More

Hi there. Thanks for the review. Sorry you had an issue with dogs and we realise its not to everyone's taste that why we have 2 out of 3 rooms where dogs arent allowed. Im surprised you found the cooking 'fairly basic' as it contradicts all our other reviews and our chef is anything but basic. In fact he has... More

Called in for dinner and the place was very quiet. The Chef was messing around with the guy behind the bar like they were teenagers playing about. Didn't have much time so ordered food because I had a meeting later on. It was cold and of poor quality it looked like it had been dumped on the plate. Maybe I... More

Hi and thanks for your review. I am very concerned that it is of such a low score. In fact the first score under 4 in over 45 reviews. Its a little vague on the food side and completely out of character for us as Im sure you can see. We stand by every meal we make and do so... More

We called today at this charming pub for lunch, the food was first class as was the service from the Manager Vicky, it's a place we intend to use again for our family. There is ample car parking and free wifi which is very good. Thanks again Vicky for making us feel so welcome.

My colleague and I were staying overnight nearby on a business trip and after failing to get excited by the hotels evening menu we ventured out and found this gem of a place.
