Good value for quality of food. Pleasant staff & surroundings. Choice of wines available were satisfactory although the menu could have been more adventurous for us.

First visit after recommendation from friends, staff attentive and friendly. Tried the Ribs as starter whilst they were nice felt they were a little overpriced. The Main courses were better value we tried the Pot Pie and Fish Pie both cooked to perfection. Nice decor and atmosphere we will be back.

Great fresh local menu. Family business - the owners know fish! Superb meal and great service. Staff member told me they own others under name of Seafood Pub Company. Great name and great combination. Am going to look up the others which all seem to be Lancashire based. Will be back!

Have been here a number of times now. We stopped going for a while but went back in August and had a fantastic meal. Not cheap but food is fabulous and service is great. Very welcoming place.
