We called on a Thursday evening for the mid week special menu, there was a choice of approx. six starters and mains, you could also choose any pasta or pizza dish. The restaurant is bright and airy with very pleasant décor. I chose mushrooms in white wine and garlic which were a tad bland for my love of garlic, but... More

I visited this place with my boyfriend on our way back from a country walk. I ordered the leek and potato soup followed by pork sunday lunch.

very very slow service,some of our parties drinks didn't arrive, food was a long time coming, and when it did arrive wasn't very good. It's a shame because it's a very varied menu with lots of fish on the special menu, but unfortunately after our experience we won't be returning.

First visit to this converted pub. Very pleasantly surprised. Lovely decor choices of real ales and a great choice on the menu. The Sunday carvery was excellent value. If you are heading down the Blackrod bye-pass don't miss out on this gem.
