The minute you enter the Bourne Arms your aware of the hubbub that is evidence throughout, its not small by any means and that doesn't include the small outside garden area which, on fine sunny days is perhaps the ideal place to partake in a little refreshments before or after your meal, but this little garden has an amazing treat in store, but first the food and drink,
If ever acknowledgement has to be given, if there was a prize for the best food, presentation, cooking, handling, service, and more! I could go on for quite some time in acknowledgement of the achievements made here in the four years I have been coming. The menu on offer is simply amazing, with so much on offer there is no doubt in my mind, there is something for everyone. The owner, who is the chef, puts out a mouth-watering menu in the finest context and selection you would ever wish for. The Bar too seems to amass a selection of drinks that cater for all tastes and types. I normally take IPA when I visit, but this time I simply asked for a pint of bitter, the reply was roll call of bitter that left me bemused any waiter could remember so many.
His staff, whether serving food or drinks do it in a professional manner that always seems to be on que. There is ample room to sit anywhere you wish to dine, even the garden area, but the most popular is the upstairs dining area that contains a wonderful window panorama of the bay. It is advisable to book if you're coming a distance.
But now back the garden and a treat that awaits all ages who will appreciate the best free show that is on view here, it’s a hive of activity any time the tide is in, boats, jet ski, a great little ferry crossing and a smart new Ice Cream parlour, but in the summer months you can experience or even take part in the best free show on the Wyre, if not in Lancashire,
Each Wednesday evening and now Sunday mornings the quite county lanes fall silent to the Farm Tractor only for the sound of other engines to take their place, these engines date from 1916 to the modern day, “The Motorbike” No not the type that scream around a TT track but a mixture of Guys and Gals that are proud owners of some of the most iconic machines that ever graced our roads, many owners are in their 50s and 60s, showing off restored Machines that would grace any show.
Historic Norton, BSA, Ariel, Ducati, Royal Enfield and Triumph, to name a few. Visitors can also see modern machines costing many thousands of pounds, such as road bikes, track bike and even choppers, their owners may be Farmers, Firemen and even the local police bikes turn up, thankfully simply to chat and explore the history that’s on show. Why not come along, have a meal, then relax over refreshments, If its on a Wednesday evening you will certainly be aware of the excitement that starts to rise, and don’t forget your camera, we have some of the most stunning sunsets to be seen.
