I believe some have reviewed in the past as negative due to saying staff service goes downhill when a coach arrives? Ive never used in the day when this is likely to happen, and good luck to them having a couple of coaches in their vast car park at lunch when I drive past, they seem to get a lot... More

We were planning to visit Fleetwood and we were looking for somewhere to eat. As usual, we used tripadvisor and this venue seemed a good choice. We jumped to their website, and spent 20 minutes trying to find a link to the menu. It is important to us as my Wife is a vegetarian, and if there are no decent... More

The best afternoon out for a long time. The staff greeted our coach on arrival and waved us off when we was leaving. The meal was hot and delicious and served with a smile. The entertainment catered for all ages, and the staff made sure that all had a god day out. Will definetly go again for another enjoyable afternoon

We go here every summer to have a drink in the beer garden, we have eaten here a few times and the food is lovely but we get put off by the atmosphere. There is never anybody in there and it's weird eating in a pub by yourself! Strange place.
