After a long day of driving, we just wanted some good bread and soup. We enjoyed a relaxing and light supper at this pub near our lodging. The pumpkin soup and crusty bread were delicious!

Excellent, efficient service. Lovely food and staff. Enjoyed the Shipyard American Pale Ale (first time I have tried it). Was nice to find a resturant that wasnt fully booked on MothersDay and managed to fit us in. We will return.

8 of us stopped on the way back from North East & must say what a lovely meal and experience, Sean the boss welcomed us all and his staff were all very helpful. The roast beef was melt in the mouth cooked however you wanted it [always a good sign] proper yorkie pud as well.

We came here for a light lunch with a friend whose grandson is a fan of the afternoon teas here. The gentleman on duty was very helpful, as we have food allergies. The food was good and sensibly priced - and we got a voucher for afternoon tea!

Been out to Lancaster for the morning, ready for a nice Sunday lunch. Called in at the New Holly pub, so helpful. We all had a starter, some pate, some prawn cocktail, lovely. We all had the roast beef Sunday roast, absolutely gorgeous. We all had a pudding, lovely. I would highly recommend this pub, we will definitely be calling... More

I went here for lunch today with my partner and it was lovely. We only had mains as it was lunch time and I'm glad we did as thd portion sizes are very generous . The belly pork was cooked to perfection and the crackling perfect , a lot of restaurants struggle with this so I was really relieved it... More
