Can't review the Clifton Arms highly enough - the amount of time I chopped and changed our reservation with Chris the Restaurant Manager was more than most would/could take and yet this was ignored and nothing was too much trouble. When we did eventually make it we were given a super table in a bay window looking out onto the... More

Superb. Very well appointed and comfortable lounge for pre dinner drinks. The service throughout was exceptional. Very pleasant and professional. These people know what they are doing. 4 choices for starters, mains and deserts. All very fresh and excellently presented. This was Sunday lunch and not cheap at £25 a head- but in this case you get what you pay... More

This well-known venue has a lovely bar which serves excellent meals, and begins at 6pm. Aside from the good food, it has a superb view across the Ribble estuary. We had, respectively, the fish dish and shepherd's pie.... More

My wife and I called in the Clifton Arms for a bar meal last week, after a bracing walk on Lytham's promenade. Our welcome was warm and friendly from the reception staff, and I was assured there was 'no problem' with leaving our car in their car park if we wanted a stroll round the town centre after lunch.
