We haven't been here for a couple of years, it's been really tastefully done out since then, the staff were nice, the food was equally as nice. We came here for a Valentine's meal, I had the game terrine, which has really tasty, my hubby had the soup, followed by fillet steak, cooked to perfection, and panfried chicken which look... More

Liked the look of the place when I was there earlier today so took a group of us in for lunch. The staff were very friendly, we had a comfortable table and the food was great - tasty, plenty of it and quickly served. Warmly recommended. Easy to reach less than five minutes off the A595 in Beckermet.

Myself and the wife called in one Thursday night for our tea. This place was recommended to me by work colleagues. The outside and inside are very smart with modern décor, but not too modern and the place fits in well with the small village. We were quickly seen to by a young lass who took our drinks order and...

went to this restaurant with work colleagues as it had been recommended to us, service was slow more so at the bar where the locals were served before us even though we had been waiting to be served before they had approached the bar, the meal was very good but expensive for what we had

All food was excellent with a large choice of fish on the menu. Rooms were nice with all of the expected amenities, this definatley makes a pleasant change from Premier... More

Watery gravy, very poor quality of beef and turkey in a Sunday roast that ended up being a total disaster. Setting is nice and they do have good selection of wins, ales and drinks. Good location, cozy, nice decor but really bad food! Not value for money. The place can be great if they change the kitchen/food quality. Probably the... More

We visited here for lunch today, on arrival the bar man told there would be a delay for lunch due to the number of people arriving at the same time which we accepted. The place was very busy, our order was taken about 20 mins after we were seated. Once ordered our lunch didn't take long to arrive, and was... More

Out celebrating a birthday and had a lovely meal at the White Mare this evening. Very friendly and attentive staff which are worthy of a special mention. Our party of three had the mussels, butternut squash/feta salad and scallops as a starter all three of which were delicious. We all had steaks as a main course which were good also.... More

The place is nice but I am afraid I can not say the same about the food. We ordered Cumberland sausage and chips, the sausage was tasteless and the texture was like hard rubber, it was almost imposible to cut. The mushrooms were burned and the chips had a strong odor of bad cooking oil. It could have been a... More

I am really sorry that you had a bad experience with us, as you will see from the majority of our reviews your experience is unusual. Did you mention the problem with the Cumberland Sausage when you were here? I am nearly always on site but I don't recall anyone mentioning it which is a shame as I'm sure, if... More
