Good food. Set in a nice typical English village.

Food was good, what we ordered. Bit of a misunderstanding ordering drinks each time with some of the waiters either not listening or can not understand English fully. Then the final bill was incorrect too. But focusing on the food. Overall good quality. Very nice English county pub! In a nice small... read more

The service was excellent and the staff very pleasant at this popular Lancashire restaurant, but in my opinion the fancy food that they serve here is just plain awful! My starter was described as 'English Pea and Lancashire Cheese soup, with Truffled Cheese Hot Dog, which all sounded rather posh, but when it arrived it was basically just a mug... More

Decided to pop in for lunch (like you do). We have been numerous times for dinner service and Sunday lunch but never for a "random" lunch and as always the food and service was amazing and attentive whilst being charming and relaxed. This is one of my top 5 places to eat ever for excellent food and wonderful service. Voted... More

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at a large upstairs table. It felt like we were dining privately and was a perfect choice for our group. The food was superb and the service excellent. Seemed like a different more relaxed atmosphere downstairs and can't wait to return to dine again.

Tucked away in the tiny village of Wiswell (say Wissle) this husband (in the kitchen) and wife (front of house, although not present on this visit) run restaurant offers Michelin star standard fare in a delightful relaxed atmosphere. Our party of four went for the a la carte dinner menu. The excellent starters were followed by mains that were similarly... More

5 of us came for this Friday night meal and everything was first class. The pub/restaurant is located in the lovely Wiswell village in an historic pub, converted into a modern eatery, but with it retaining that pub feel and even some real ales. The service was very attentive, polite and efficient. The menu is varied from a la carte,... More

This is a gastro-pub that is tucked away in the center of the village. Currently they have the "Gold" menu that is excellent value for money, 3 courses for £25. The food is Michelin Star standard Yet another excellent visit

This is not your standard "wedding venue", its something very personal and intimate. We had the privilege to be able to work with Steven and his Team to arrange our daughter & her new husbands full wedding celebrations at the Freemasons. This was a perfect day, from the early start until 12 midnight we had the support of a magnificent... More
