“The Importance of Good Service”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

When we arrived the place was fairly well packed and not much room to spare, generally a good sign I think. The landlord, looking a bit frayed at the edges, was juggling a busy pub with some kitchen equipment malfunctions. Despite that he was courteous, considerate to his customers and, above all, was communicating. So we sat back, enjoyed the view, had a beer and passed the time. Assured that food would be produced in good time. The food was excellent when it arrived. A pleasure to spend time and look forward to going back.

“Great pub food.”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

There was a comprehensive menu with reasonable prices. It seemed better value than the other pub in the village. We ate in the early evening and there was little shade from the low sun streaming through the windows. Try and get a table with a bit of shade!

“Very welcoming...”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

After a walk around Arnside in the pouring rain with my dog, me and my friend were made to feel very welcome. Our coats were taken straight away and put on a radiator to dry off. And my dog was given a big bowl of water and a sausage to eat, before we had even ordered our pints. Very friendly staff, will definitely go again next time I am in Arnside.

We had the Friday night special steak for two with a bottle of wine for £25 and it was delicious, will definitely return. Great staff too.

“Surprised!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Not been in here for a couple of years... Last time was not a great experience, akin to American Werewolf, walking in and locals at the bar staring at you, as if you had two heads and making you feel generally uncomfortable.
Great difference today... Clean, vibrant, very good food and excellent service from attentive staff!
Many real ales and a refreshing change...well done!
