We have been here before and we have always enjoyed good food and good choice of beer and wines. There is a good choice and some dishes are special dishes not always on a pub menu. Inside the décor is very traditional with lots of character and some lovely antique pieces. The staff are friendly and efficient. Outside seating is... More

All the food was great at the Strickland perhaps with the exception of my lamb which was tough, but I think I was just unlucky as everyone else's was tender. Service was very good and the ambience is really nice. Hard to fault.

We visited here on an average Sunday afternoon at 14:00. The bar maid was rude and when waiting at the bar she stood and made numerous drinks orders for tables before then taking them to the customers and returning to make our cokes. Having been a bar manager previously, this just wouldn't have been acceptable where I worked and waitresses... More

Last minute visit to the Strickland Arms last night for a meal that we both regretted. Started eating my steak pie and stopped when I had to remove a piece of thick elastic band from my mouth. The waitress advised us that the chef had no idea how this got into the meal, and I was offered the choice of... More

Visit this place regularly for lunch and dinner when in the vicinity. It is always busy and provides very good value food and ample portions. The food is always tasty and service pretty good. One memorable time was when entertainment was via a guitarist which added more ambience to the place. Well worth a visit.

We stopped here on Friday night on our way home from Yorkshire. We had a table upstairs where it was initially very quiet. More people arrived later. The food came reasonably promptly and was very good. Servicewasalso good.

We have been here a few times, most recently last Sunday when five of us went for Sunday lunch. We had booked the day before and, on arrival, (2pm) the pub was very busy. We were shown to our table and got drinks at the bar. After a wait of around 15-20 minutes our order was taken (we were in... More

On Sunday 24 August y wife and I visited the Strickland Arms for a pre-booked evening meal. At the time of booking I was not asked if I wanted a table in the restaurant or bar so assumed it would be in the restaurant. On arriving we were directed by one of the bar staff to a small round table... More
