Sunday lunch at Rowleys proved to be a tad disappointing - very slow service despite the fact that we had to pre order our meal. Roast potatoes had obviously been pre cooked and then warmed up - chicken rather dry - sticky toffee pudding tasted more like parkin and not worth the calories. I must say I have had better... More

Lovely restaurant with great concept looking over the football grounds...however when we went it was a quiet evening with only about 6 other diners. The service was slow, staff quite unattentive and kept having to ask for service, however they were friendly...Food was mediocre with the mash being completely tasteless...wine was nice though! Would go back...maybe it was just a... More

Visited Rowleys last night, have to say excellent food which was presented very well. Must be one of the best restaurants on the fylde coast. Well done to the chefs and kitchen staff who worked that night.

Booked in and took the family here for a meal l, we were totally blown away with the quality and presentation of the food. The Blackpudding fritters are fantastic as a starter and the deserts are to die for.

Very good breakfast service, but excellent service from all staff throughout our stay, from our arrival mid-morning on Saturday (waiting to meet others in our party), to our departure after breakfast on Sunday .

The food was excellent and we all enjoyed everything - the ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and was really tender. The staff were very attentive, professional and friendly. An... More

Great food great service & extremely good prices for such quality. Despite being a Monday evening the restaurant still managed to have a good atmosphere & attentive service without being too pushy. 5 stars all round. Ps try the rhubarb & vimto triffle it's to die for!

Having read previous reviews was really expecting something special, but unfortunately was left disappointed. I cant fault the staff the service was impeccable and the place itself was lovely the only thing that let it down was the food. Having said that everybody in our party did enjoy the starters but the main courses left a lot to be desired... More

My friend and I chose to dine at Rowley's after being informed that they had recently joined Hi Life and we were certainly not disappointed. Rowley's is what can only be described as a hidden gem, beautifully decorated with really attentive and friendly staff; we felt totally at home. It is not often that you find great food without pretension,... More
