My wife, her Daughter and friends visited here last week and reported a fantastic meal. They had the lamb suet pudding which they say was just fantastic, one of the party had the cheese and onion pie that was apparently delicious. With such a fabulous review my Wife and I returned this weekend, the pub/restaurant is ideally located at the... More

Great food and good service. The barn to eat in is a lovely atmosphere with roaring fire in winter and in summer the outdoor area by the canal is fab. Great for kids too- nice menu for them and a nice big space for them to be in.

We have eaten here several times last year and twice in the last two nights so I thought it was time to let others know just how good the food, service and setting is. The menu is very varied and you have lots of choice. Whether you eat inside by a big roaring fire or outside by Garstang beautiful canal... More

After having eaten here several times now I have finally got round to leaving a review! This truly is a charming place to eat, the food is always delicious, the staff so helpful, the cleanliness is 5 star too, so many fruit wines to choose from, and the onion rings are homemade, the best vegetarian curry I have ever had!...

A roaring log fire on a cold and wet winter's night. Our table was reserved and the service courteous, prompt and efficient. The party was catered for splendidly and all ages were treated with respect and thoughtfulness. The youngest guest was 4 months old and the eldest 87 years young! A beautiful meal well presented and we were all made... More

Just stopped off on the way home for Sunday lunch. Lovely location next to the canal which I can imagine is even more pleasant in summer without the drizzle to keep you inside! I had the roast ham and the other half had minted lamb suet pudding. Both were very tasty and I can honestly say that the mash potato... More

We regularly visited the tithe barn for food and drink as it is situated perfectly by the canal and was our favourite place to sink a bottle of fruit wine in the summer. I've been a customer for 6 years and have witnessed this establishment take a swift nose dive in the last 6 months. When serving the staff are... More

Hi Angeloandrew I would like to thank you for your review. To say the Tithe Barn has taken a swift nose dive in the last 6 months seems harsh - yes during the summer we had some major problems with myself being ill and no head chef but in September I came back and tried to steady the ship so...

Well what can I say? The minute you walk in the atmosphere is cold. The tables are uninviting as they are all huge for big parties. The staff are rude and very unhelpful. Asked for a menu it was basically thrown at us and then a man whom I presume is the manager walked past and shouted no roasts! Sarcastic... More

The bread was stale, the cheese was cheap and tasteless, the fish smelt very fishy (probably off) and the atmosphere wasn't very welcoming either.

Thank you Anonymous S For your comments. I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience.

Description
Dating back as early as 1710, The Tithe Barn is a charming and characterful inn situated in the bustling market town of Garstang, adjacent to the River Wyre. Originally a post medieval tithe barn for storing grain and corn, the pub today offers a large range of high quality dishes alongside extensive portfolio of cask conditioned ales, fine wines, spirits and continental bottled beers. Our Head Chef and his team at the Tithe Barn have carefully sourced the best of this season's produce to ensure everything on our menu is grown, reared, caught, picked or churned by one of our local food suppliers within a twenty mile radius. We have sourced quality, fresh ingredients from the best local producers to lovingly create these dishes for you. So relax, make your choice and enjoy!
