Stopped for lunch on Saturday as I have on a few occasions with dogs and relatives. A pleasant area to the side of the bar is set aside for people with dogs so plenty room in the pub for those not so keen on our 4 legged friends. Staff very pleasant, food tasty, service good and a lovely Marlborough Sauvignon... More

The crofters has always been a good ole good country pub with honest pub grub and so with this in mind my wife and I along with our child went here for tea after work one day last week. We noticed straight-away that there have been a few changes and i'm not sure how these will turn out. Firstly it... More

We chose it as it was easy to get to from Manchester and Preston where our friends live. We made a booking although it was quiet when we arrived. It filled up later with families and small groups. It is a large place so suitable for large parties. The menu was extensive. All the meals were huge and served on... More

My friend and I have been to the Jolly crofters on several occasions for lunch. It is so laid back and very comfortable. The meals we have chosen are always lovely....especially the hunters chicken. I would highly recommend this place. Parking is easy around the back

After the last visit, I stated I would never return. But, due to a family member asking to go, I had to give in. What an absolute disgrace! Place has dogs wandering around now. The place still smells of damp and still has the same unhelpful staff. Ordered our food, not one smile and no please or thank you, please... More

my friend and I called in for a bite to eat this lunchtime. we received one meal and after about 35 minutes we asked the waitress as to when I would receive mine (my friend had well finished hers already). We were abruptly told 'don't ask me I've got people to serve who've ordered more than just one meal'. When... More

My wife and myself visit this beautiful pub because you always receive a very warm welcome from two of the most kindest caring individuals to run a business. The Jolly Crofters is part of a dying breed of truly exceptional local community pubs which actually supports the community, local charities and provides a great service to all. Anyone who knows...
