Lovely food which was well presented and very tasty. Nice location though it seemed a bit off the beaten track but was actually only a minute from the main A590. We were recommended by it's sister pub the Derby Arms (as they weren't serving food that day) over in Witherslack. The place is a bit old-worldly, some of the seats... More

Pub setting OK nice fire on a wet evening. Service was quick, attentive and efficient. The chairs need to be checked as two of our four had loose backs. Food :- Good range of starters which were good and presented well. Main courses only average the pie/pudding of the day was fine but over spiced with pepper. The creamed mashed... More

Firstly the steak my husband and I ordered was very good, but sadly we felt very processed! When we first went in the member of staff was busy and there was no one else around so she told us to find a table (although we had pre booked) and menus would be brought to us. The steaks arrived very promptly... More

We visited fairly early on a Wednesday evening and by 7.15pm the pub was getting really busy. The service we received was excellent; very friendly and efficient. The quality of the food was also extremely good and the Lancashire hot pot was one of the best I have ever had. My wife's fish pie was equally good and packed with... More

This is a lovely pub in an excellent location near to the entrance of Sizergh Castle. We had luckily booked a table for Sunday lunch as when we arrived the pub was quite full and we would not have got a table. There is always a good selection of locally produced real ales available and although the menu is not... More

It was only a quick stop for lunch, as the place looks very attractive from outside and is tastefully decorated within. Unfortunately that's where the positive impressions ended. It took some considerable time to attract the waitress to take an order, although the place was far from busy. It then took well over 40 minutes for a simple fish pie... More

Visited with family a few weeks ago for a meal out as a birthday. The restaurant area was quite busy and i was glad we had reserved a table. We had a choice of the normal menu or a specials menu which was lovely, lots and lots of choice and something to suit everyone. The food and service was fantastic,... More
