“Fantastic Atmosphere, Lovely Staff and Great food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Visited with friends over the bank holiday weekend and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was excellent, I had the chicken burger, the presentation and taste was superb but took a little longer than expected but was worth the wait. We were served by the young dark haired manager who was very welcoming and we felt really looked after and we would definitely come again. We have been previously (about 6 months ago) when visiting family in Preston and found the service very average but since then things have definitely got better! We will be back again soon!

“Not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

My partner & i went for a lunch one saturday afternoon as we live locally.
We both opted for the build your own burger as they looked immense on the photos.
Looks can be deceiving!!
The burger was not very big at all - and for over £9 i was expecting a lot more.
At GBK you get a massive burger for that price!
It all looked very nice on a wooden board and the chips came in a small bucket.
The bun was standard.
This is a marstons pub and not 2 miles away is the fieldfare which is also a marstons pub.
I would choose the fieldfare every time over the bobbin mill because everything is 2-4-1 (better value for money) and the burgers are huge & tastier!
Waiter was very nice & friendly.

“would not recommend a visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

do not waste your money sent 3 out of 4 meals back as cold or undercooked. Even one of the meals of chicken was not cooked properly. Meals were replaced but this had put us off by then. No omplimentary drinks ordered while we waited. ALSO the rplacement meals came in dribs and drabs so did not eat together
give it a miss

“Terribly slow service lets it down.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The service was terribly slow considering the place wasn't even half full.
The pub itself is friendly as were the members of staff and the waitress was decent too but a little forgetful.
The food would have been lovely but all 3 of my veg and my wife's were only luke warm ..My salmon was done lovely and was hot when served but the cold veg spoiled it.
My wife had the Chicken Sunday roast which again the chicken was hot and freshly cooked as I even tried a sneak taste but she said again that her veg was also on the cool side which is a shame as it would otherwise have been a lovely meal.The worst thing was the wait of approximately 50 minutes for our food to arrive and like I say the place was only a quarter full and no apologies for the delay or any acknowledgement of the delay....If there is a delay with orders they should tell you when you order and it gives you the option of going elsewhere....My wife ordered the Sherry Trifle which was probably the nicest I have ever tasted....so all wasn't too bad it is just a shame they don't get their act together as it could be a lovely place to go.
