We were staying locally in a holiday rental and found this great pub, great place, very welcoming and good food. We had our grandchildren with us and they were made especially welcome with a fabulous children's menu. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visits to our local and will return some day.

Visited here for a late lunch on Saturday afternoon. At 3p.m. It was fairly busy with diners and we were given a table in the bright and nicely decorated dining room. I had the Hake and my husband the Lamb Shank, both served with roast and new potatoes and carrots, broccoli and swede. The food was very good and everything...

I've been here loads of times over the years & it's always delicious food & excellent service-especially the waitress with the short brown hair. Warm & friendly atmosphere, great choice on the menu & at decent prices 👍🏻

First return visit of the year. Miserable weather outside but nice and cosy here. Had our usual hot beef sandwich with gravy onions salad and chips. My husband had the same with lamb. Everything was delicious.

Ate there yesterday evening and the meal was delicious. The BBq ribs were to die for as was the liver and onions. Great portions and good value for money. The staff were really nice and very friendly. We will definitely be back.

My partner and daughters called in here by chance on saturday afternoon for a light lunch and left one hour later full to the brim off a bacon sandwich for her and a roast beef butty for me.

Voted as excellent by TripAdvisor in 2014, but since the refurbishments following the floods of 2015, it has just got better. The staff make you feel like old friends, the decor is delightful and the service is ten star. Orders are taken quickly and delivered in a flash. All seems calm, but it is obvious the staff are working flat...

We stopped here after a long walk on the Ribble Valley Way and had a warm hearty meal. The mulled wine certainly helped warm us up and the food was tasty. The Christmas menu was available, so we settled on that. There were several options and we opted for the 2 courses. The soup was homemade and the rolls were...
