There were 4 of us having a belated, combined, Birthday meal. We have tried a lot of places around and about for a Sunday treat, and having looked online at the reviews and menu we thought we'd try The Foot. Well it isn't great. The food is OK pub fare. I suspect that if we were regulars then the service... More

Just returned from a meal here with family and there were just too many niggles to make it an enjoyable experience. At first glance it looks like a lovely country pub , it's a beautiful old building with lovely gardens and an ample car park. However inside it looks a bit grubby and run down, quite a few of the...

We arrived for an early dinner around 6pm this evening, in anticipation of an enjoyable meal, in an agreeable, relaxing atmosphere. Although the place was almost devoid of diners, we were told that we might have to wait up to an hour for our order to be delivered to the table, although in reality the food was served reasonable quickly...

Look its a god pub in a lovely location. BUT it has a few minor areas where it could be so much better. If if it addressed these then (in my opinion) it could be a jewel in the crown. So food is good pub food and the main pub is oldy worldy so pleasing to the eye and cosey.... More

Fabulous Home cooked food in a 17th century inn with excellent wines and quality cask ales, roaring fires in winter, stunning beer garden in the summer. One of the best little pubs in Lancashire!
