“Must be the best restaurant in Lytham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

This is a restaurant where the staff are smartly attired and greet you with a warm welcome. Service is efficient and attentive. The restaurant appears to have been re-decorated in the past two years and is smart. Tables have white tablecloths, plates are white and of a circular shape and everything is in good taste. There are good views out to the sea. The food is very good. I had mushroom and tarragon soup, sea bass and white chocolate panna cotta. Demographic is mainly fifty plus but a few younger people as well. The menu doesn't hold any surprises and could perhaps be a little (and I mean a little) more adventurous. Will go back.

“A shadow of it's former self”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

Sunday Lunch at the Clifton Arms used to be a delight. Now it's very ordinary although the staff are still very good, being welcoming, pleasant & efficient. The food however leaves something to be desired, rare roast beef being well done, and loin of pork hardly being a good alternative. Used to return quite regularly but it will be some time before our next visit as there are numerous other better restaurants in the area offering better food at more reasonable prices. A shame !!

“Fine quality food and wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

Relaxed atmosphere helpful and friendly staff, nice spacious rooms, good location near other bars, good shopping in the town centre. Plenty of walking after eating all that good food
