Went for a meal with the family at the weekend and everyone enjoyed a delicious meal which was complemented by good service. Main courses were well presented and "Hearty", and after a starter, there was no room for pudding! Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Reading the menu itself is a treat, and the dilemma that faced me was made more difficult by the look of the delicious food being served at other tables. Finally decided on the steak and ale pie and was not disappointed. Portion size was good, not over facing, and the service was exceptional, with friendly staff and attentive but not... More

I called here for refreshment after making use of my National Trust membership at the very adjacent Sizergh Castle. The entrance to the grounds of the castle is less than 100 metres up the lane. The Strickland Arms is a good looking pub, although not improved by the dull grey render covering the stonework. In front there’s a paved terrace... More

Service is good with a decent range of beers and drinks. Decoration has a nice 'feel' to it and has a good ambience. Limited choice of menu and the food is good but overpriced

A lunchtime meeting for eight friends. A convenient meeting place as we were coming from Cumbria and Lancashire so a shortish drive for us all. The reserved table was ready for us and we found on a cool winter day a well established fire warming the dining room. Attentive staff brought drinks as and when our friends arrived and orders...

A large party (25) of us met for lunch here. The challenge for getting meals upstairs to us at the same time was a difficult task. But this was carried out efficiently by the staff. From fish pie to the sandwiches from their menu all were given a vote of approval by all. Good venue for large parties. Well done... More

After telephoning to book a table we were told the place was full, so we called just for a drink only to find just three tables were taken! We did stay for dinner. I mentioned this to friends and was told they had similar experiences! This is a lovely pub with a good selection of drinks and a good menu.... More
