Visited this lunch time without a reservation, and were happy to sit in the bar area which we were offered. The restaurant looked packed with parties enjoying the Xmas spirit. The Inn has a spacious and quite cosy atmosphere. The staff were efficient and helpful and the service prompt.
There was a decent selection of ales available, we particularly enjoyed the Bowland Hen Harrier.
As well as the normal menu we were offered a special Christmas Menu. Two courses for £13.95 - no room for the third course.
There was a good choice for all.
Both starters and mains were well presented and of fairly good quality.Considering how busy the place was it was an enjoyable relaxed dining experience.

Had some excellent meals in this pub which is local to us.
Also had some disasters. Unfortunately complaints do not appear to be welcome - no apologies or refunds. Bit complacent

Staff not over friendly. Food prices a bit steep. Service a bit slow. On the whole the food was decent enough (apart from the mash and chips, strange taste.) Varied menu and lovely desserts. Would probably visit again at a quieter time or reserve a table first. (land lord not sure he could fit us in at first and also staff added 2 items to our bill that were not ours.)

Took mum here for her birthday - one of the few places open on a Monday lunchtime. Mum had garlic mushrooms, which were good but the bread they were served on was too tough for her to cut. Husband's Thai fishcakes & my haddock goujons were delicious. For mains, mum had 1/2 portion of fish & chips, which was perfect for her. Husband had full size portion & I had 1/2 portion of hotpot. We all really enjoyed our meals and were too full for a sweet. Coffee was very reasonable at £1.20 for a latte. Service was attentive & the waitress was very helpful. I would definitely eat here again.

After a long trip to Durham for the day we decided to visit the Corporation arms it was around 6-30 and the place was already busy. Found ourselves a table and ordered from the weekend menu 2 courses for 12-99 I had a very nice platter of smoked fish followed by a steak and Stilton suet pudding. Fish excellent and the pudding also although it was a giant of a meal. My wife had mushroom stuffed with peepers and covered with goats cheese followed by chicken Kiev and as there was nothing left on the plate I decided she must have enjoyed it. The bill was less than £40-00 with two drinks each. Great value for money for good pub grub.
