“Traditional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Went in on New Years Day for lunch. The menu seems to vary on a daily basis and is shown on chalk boards. The poached smoked haddock with mash in a cream sauce was particularly good. Timothy Taylor Landlord is the regular cask ale along with another guest.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Been meaning to visit the Lantern Pike for some time. So glad we went.

A warm and friendly greeting from the manager - who was full of interesting facts about the history of the place.

It has lovely memorabilia from the set of Coronation Street - so a must visit for any fans.

I went with family and friends and we all had a lovely meal. Generous portions.

We only went for lunch - not for accommodation - so I am unable to rate that

Cold November day. Went into the Lantern and found a warm and friendly atmosphere. The other clients were pleasant and the front of house manager, Mark was efficient, attentive and humorous. The food was great, plentiful and well cooked and presented. Appears to have lovely real ales, unfortunately I was driving!

This old fashioned Inn is what you expect from this type of establishment, which is always a good thing. Nothing worse than turning up at a traditional pub and finding it's like a travel lodge. For about the same sort of money you can stay in this pub with it's history and character and enjoy the sort of food you should expect from a real Inn not a themed pub.
The rooms are clean and suprisingly spacious with a generous on-suite.
The Lanteren Pike seems to cater for two main types, the traveler and people who enjoy walking the local hills. Both are well catered for in that the importance of a good breakfast is not lost here and at night you can enjoy pub grub as intended. There is a dining room but most people seem to prefer to eat in the bar and when both logs fires are on why not especially if you have been walking the hills all day!
The Lantern Pike is a cosy and friendly old style pub providing a very warm welcome and a suprisingly large and varried menu suported by some excellent beers. On my visit they also had a selection of ciders at astonishingly good prices.
If your not sure what to order ask for a sample, they don't hesitate. Tom the landlord takes a pride in his pub and most nights seem to have something on, Wednesday was quize night. If your'e into walking ask Tom as he is very knowledgable about the local terrain and what's worth seeing locally.
A very comfortable, friendly and affordable Inn with a great atmospere.

Room Tip: Ask to see them.

Fabulous lunchtime meal and environment. We plan to be there again for a Christmas meal in December. Oh and we drove from Nottingham, Preston and Leeds just to meet up there, so that is saying how much we enjoyed it.

One of my favourite pubs in the area. Very good Timothy Taylor landlord and other guest beers and good home made style food. Very popular with walkers tackling the nearby Lantern Pike which is the home of a fell race in September.
