We visited the restaurant for Sunday lunch and were surprised to find that even though the place wasn't even half full that a table for us couldn't be made ready for half an hour. Disappointing but we went on to have an excellent meal elsewhere

A small group of us visited this place one lunchtime. It had been raining outside and I slipped on the wooden decking soaking my clothes and injuring my knee. I have to say the staff were less than sympathetic. Apart from this experience the food was excellent

On a recent visit to Lancashire, friends suggested we meet for dinner here and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the servers were both accommodating and friendly. I would recommend their fish dishes as this seems to be their forte.

My mum and I visited one lunch time during the week. The interior is very nice and to a high standard. We were greeted by a local male who was very good at his job (all of the staff we encountered were) and was extremely pleasant in finding us a place to sit, even getting us cushions for the thrones...

Visited this restaurant for an evening meal and I must say it did not impress. The interior of the pub is gorgeous but other than the fish and chips, the food was very mediocre. To make matters worse we were served by a grumpy waitress who was practically mute. These days customers will not accept being served by unfriendly staff... More

Really easy to find but the car park was really full. An indication of the popularity of the place though. Very welcoming environment and the staff were brilliant all evening. Full knowledge of the menu and always on hand with a smile. We were spoilt for choice on the menu and the food itself was excellent. Really good portion sizes... More

An excellent meal with my wife. A good choice and a good selection of fresh fish dishes based on what is fresh in the market. I had a red fish satay with rice which was excellent. The menu looked so good I could have had anything and enjoyed it. The service was also excellent, with servers sharing the duties of... More
