I eat here every one or two weeks. It's my main reason for visiting Garstang. The food is fresh and tasty and always plentiful. The pub is cosy and clean and it's very reasonably priced. I wouldn't eat anywhere else in Garstang and I'm a fussy old bigger. Highly recommended!

Breakfast was of good quality and very enjoyable. A bonus was that they allowed our two dogs to stay with us in the room. All in all a pleasant... More

Lots of fabric bench seating around the walls. We ate from the regular menu. I had garlic mushrooms to start, my colleague had deep fried king prawns. Both were kind of OK... More
