Excellent food, well presented and plenty of it! Great value for money and definitely not pub grub! Friendly, attentive staff and spacious beer gardens. Would recommend but suggest booking in advance as can be quite busy at peek times!

We came for lunch and the food was lovely, well presented and cooked just right. We also tried some of the flavoured gins, this pub is a MUST! Could have stayed sat in the beer garden all day!

Fabulous Home cooked food in a 17th century inn with excellent wines and quality cask ales, roaring fires in winter, stunning beer garden in the summer. One of the best little pubs in Lancashire!
