The Punch Bowl never fails to provide a warm welcome and excellent food, wine and craft ales. I have to disagree with the previous reviewers who say the portions are too small. They are just right.

I have been visiting this restaurant for some 20 years even back in the day when Stephen Doherty was at the helm !
The food has returned to its delicious best - portions contrary to other reports are actually very generous- on a GFG rating the food is at least 4/10 ! Tuna Niçoise salad / twice baked Lancashire cheese soufflé - mains of duck Breast/ belly pork with scallops - Fab!!

Tha staff are attentive and agreeable.

Liked the super service and the choices on the menu
The desserts I am afraid did not meet the same standard.
I had a lemon meringue pie that was not worth a fraction of the exorbitant price I paid for it. Silicone lemon!

visited bank holiday weekend and the restaurant manager found us a table i wish he hadnt whilst the service ambience and quality of food was very good the portions are very small and therefore the restaurant for me is not value and i couldnt recommend because of this unless you like paying for a slimmers diet or extra portions,
