Been here many years ago and decided to drop in for lunch on the way to Barton Grange. As it was a nice sunny day, we opted to sit outside. I popped in for drinks before ordering food. Well, if there is a way of making you feel unwelcome the barman/ landlord certainly had the knack. A quick "hello, what... More

Lovely location on the canal, a few minutes off the A6 near to Garstang. With so many pubs nowadays opting for ultra modern revamps with gassy lagers and trendy menus, it's good to see the retention of an old village pub. Little has changed here over the years, and the place has a wonderful charm and attention to traditional values.... More

Very pleasant canal side eatery. Good food and good selection of ales. Inside eating area very ordinary but outside tables adjacent to canal basin very popular.

We called here last Friday evening and first impressions were good. However, the restaurant is a little odd. You feel like you are in a lovely old building but then the restaurant part feels like an open kitchen. The food was presented well but the quality was average. The service was good, all the staff very pleasant. We didn't have... More

We took Eric out to celebrate his 84th birthday and revisited Th'Owd Tithe Barn for the first time in a couple of decades. The sun had filled most of the outside tables overlooking the Lancaster Canal, but Eric preferred to sit inside. The beer was good and the food order was taken quickly. Starters were garlic mushrooms (Eric) and shared... More

Dating back as early as 1710, The Tithe Barn is a charming and characterful inn situated in the bustling market town of Garstang, adjacent to the River Wyre. Originally a post medieval tithe barn for storing grain and corn, the pub today offers a large range of high quality dishes alongside extensive portfolio of cask conditioned ales, fine wines, spirits and continental bottled beers. Our Head Chef and his team at the Tithe Barn have carefully sourced the best of this season's produce to ensure everything on our menu is grown, reared, caught, picked or churned by one of our local food suppliers within a twenty mile radius. We have sourced quality, fresh ingredients from the best local producers to lovingly create these dishes for you. So relax, make your choice and enjoy!
