Nice quaint pub

Food was reasonably priced but good quality, bit disappointed as three other tables orders were taken before ours although we were seated and ready to order, think we were just bypassed

Visited early evening. Didn't have reservation and was given a table and advised it was needed in one hour - suited us as just planned a main course. Order taken quickly. Very few staff on duty and drinks took 15 mins to appear and food 40 mins, and one of the orders was completely wrong . As soon as we... More

Booked for Sunday dinner at 3pm. Arrived promptly at 3pm, our table wasn't ready. This was fine, we were told to order a drink and they would seat us when our table was ready. 35 minutes later, when my boyfriend went to ask if our table was ready yet, he was told that we should have found them. Basically it... More

We had visited the Strickland Arms for lunch before hand with our family, they commented that it was the best pub lunch that they had eaten for a very long time! So the next day my husband & I decided to go for a walk (we were based at the Caravan Club Site nearby) up to the Sizergh Castle, then... More

This was a great pub with friendly staff, lovely atmosphere and great food. We walked here from the campsite just down the road and had a lovely meal. Good was cooked perfectly, can strongly recommended the lemon meringue pie! Staff very friendly and welcoming! Well worth a visit, might be worth booking as very popular!

Visited again after a gap of a year... While travelling north and staying one night at a local motel. Not disappointed! Just our kind of menu: good food imaginatively presented and at a sensible price. Good sized portions. Friendly helpful staff, warm busy atmosphere, but didn't have to wait long for food. Highly recommended! If we come back to the... More

We were staying at the Caravan Club site nearby, the Strickland Arms was recommended by the staff on site. We turned up without booking and managed to grab the last table. The staff were welcoming and friendly and could not do enough to help, they even asked us if the music was too loud. We ordered the children's homemade burger... More

Rubbish choice, rubbish food Won't go again. We took friends and were embarrassed by the quality of food and it was not particularly cheap either.

We were staying at the nearby Caravan Club site and noticed that the Strickland Arms offered their two course special at £10.95 up until 21.00hrs for Caravan Club members and also that dogs were welcome. First time we visited all four meals were pretty good, more than acceptable. Also the gentleman who appeared to be the manager was extremely welcoming... More
