We visited here with friends for a Sunday Roast. We ordered 4 different Nibble Starters which were absolutely delicious. We had the Home Made Crackers and Dips, The Battered Snails, Calamari...

The female owner has a terrible attitude and I have witnessed her talking to people like the are worthless. It was not a very nice thing to witness and I found her to be extremely rude. Found the service to be slow as well and the food average.

We went for one night for a friend's birthday celebration. We were in a separate building adjoining the hotel as we were a big party. The food was well presented, piping hot and really tasty.

Very good Atmostphere, excellent staff and pretty good food served by people who actually wanted to be there. Four of us had soups to start, followed by main course of Pork X 3 and Cod from the specials board. Coffees to round off with and we shared a bottle of rose wine.

We visit Cartford 3-4 times a month. Food is always very good, staff is very polite and well trained. Will recommend it to anyone who fancy upmarket pub food with difference. When you there visit TOTTI shop. You can find some great and tasty treasures.😀

We only live 35 minutes away, so why go to The Cartford Inn for a stay over. Well my wife suggested it for my birthday, however I was sceptical. Once there you could be anywhere in the country. We went for a four mile walk by the River Wyre, then back to the lounge for a drink and feet up....

Absolutely amazing yet again, this place never fails us, the food is the best I have tasted and the service is excellent. We had a beautiful meal and it is by far our favourite place to eat, the scallops just melt in your mouth and the steak is a favourite, you won't find food this good for miles...
