Great good but some choices have disappeared from the menu that's on display in the loo! Would have liked sea bass Can't fault the food except there's not really any healthier options, no salad type meals. The young staff are sometimes lacking in the finer points in service skills .. Carrying our own drinks over etc but on the whole... More

We waited a long time for a table, and we were really annoyed that some people just walked past and seated themselves, effectively jumping the queue. Non of the restaurant staff seemed to be interested in this at all. We had to ask for cups spoons, glasses etc etc. The place seemed understaffed and stressful.

We decided to go somewhere a bit different as I’d never been to this restaurant before normally eating in Lytham, but what a surprise. Having been used to the style of restaurants in the capital it was great... More

This restaurant is wonderful! We had already eaten in Lytham, so settled for some cocktails and light bites. The best strawberry... More

Our party went to Rowley's on a fairly quiet Wednesday night. After being shown to our table we waited a while before our order was taken - over an hour later and even after reminding staff that we had waited that long, our starters arrived. They were of a high standard and we ernjoyed them, as well as the atmosphere... More

Fantastic breakfast 4 days in a row! Lovely just to sit and have a drink in the bar. Very modern and ambiance is very chilled. Great view from any table too.
