I had Cumberland sausage from the lunch menu which was delicious, the gravy was heaven!! My partner had fish and chips which was lovely... More

I wasn't going to review our experience here, as I really didn't find anything particularly outstanding. I'd reserved a table solely for the purpose of trying their rack of beef ribs, which I had reserved when I booked our table, as I'd heard so much about them. However, they had sold their last portion to a work colleague just before... More

Enjoyed the food, very nice. What annoyed us (4) was that the Monday offer stated 'order a main meal and get a free starter or dessert' . Two of us had 'main meals' from the specials menu BUT this did not count, though this was not stated on the menu or anywhere else. The duty manager admitted that it was... More

Thank you for your review. From what I understand you visited on Monday lunchtime. We offer a heavily discounted lunch menu through the week and our desserts on this menu never exceed the £4 mark. I understand your disappointment at expecting a free dessert but we only offer the free dessert or starter on our main menu. There was 1... More

An old pub in Farnworth Village. The menu is limited but the food is very good. We like going for lunch but do also visit for dinner. You do need to book.

My husband and I have visited on numerous occasions with friends on a Saturday evening and always had great food and service. We decided to go for Sunday lunch - food was excellent but service was terrible. Lots of staff hanging around chatting - our drinks order was forgotten about and we had to ask again, dessert was served with... More

Following a visit to the Crematorium this pub organised a buffet for 20 people consisting of a good selection of hot and cold items including sandwiches, wraps, pies, wings and chips [both the latter cajun flavoured] and dealt with the drink demands very well.
