The good pub guide review

Another member of the Brunning & Price family, this quaint and cosy 19th-c stone inn has been sympathetically extended. Several light and airy rooms run together with flagstoned floors, high ceilings with beams and joists and pale grey walls above a grey dado. There are laden bookshelves, mirrors, prints and pictures on pale painted walls, big house plants, wooden, plush upholstered or leather chairs and tartan banquettes around simple wooden tables, and an open fire and a fine old range. Helpful, friendly young staff serve Phoenix Brunning & Price Original and guests from breweries such as Bowland, Hawkshead, Moorhouses, Three B's and Timothy Taylors on handpump, eight wines by the glass, 40 rums, 50 malt whiskies and 60 gins; background music and board games. There's an appealing paved and awning-covered garden and terrace with benches, seats and tables and a fire pit. Disabled access.

The good pub guide food review

Interesting, bistro-like food includes sandwiches and 'light bites', deep-fried brie with apricot chutney and candied walnuts, barbecue chicken wings, Sandham's lancashire cheese and onion pie with chips, crispy beef salad with sweet chilli sauce and roasted cashew nuts, chicken, ham and leek pie with mash and buttered greens, king prawn linguine with chilli and tomato, and puddings such as triple chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream and summer pudding with clotted cream and Cheshire Farm ice-creams and sorbets.
