“Good pub/restaurant close to Carnforth town centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This pub restaurant sits beside the Canal as it passes through Carnforth, opposite the small boat marina. You can either sit in the main part of the restaurant or in the conservatory overlooking the water. Serves reasonably priced food and drink, and is worth a visit if you are in the area.

“yet to make my mind up”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Parked in the car park to check the canal out for fishing purposes and to have a drink and some lunch.
This was January and a really cold day.Met by a sign on the door saying no food being served.
Didn't want a three course meal just a sandwich or a pie would have been acceptable.
Ordered a coffee for the wife and a pint of Stella for myself.
No Stella on so had to wait whilst they put the barrel on so I had to sit there without a drink for ten minutes.
Tried talking to mein host and his wife whilst waiting and neither seemed interested in both of us.
Left after a drink and the wife said "wont be going there again"
Lovely pub.lovely location,terrible atmospher.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Visited here with family for a meal. Food was very poor quality. Used to visit here a lot and the food used to be fantastic. Not a good choice of ales either.
