Friendly pub,helpful staff. I had a one Sunday night stay in January 2018.I arrived quite early so had Sunday lunch in the dining room.The food was excellent,generous portions and beautifully cooked local lamb. I walked off my lunch around some of the lovely border countryside and had a couple of really nice beers in the friendly bar in the evening.Unfortunately,I had an extremely early start to meet a friend on our way up to Scotland the next day so couldn't take advantage of the full breakfast.I was however provided with a generous continental breakfast in my room for the morning. A lovely,comfortable and beautifully decorated room and staff who couldn't have been more helpful. A cracking little pub and excellent service.

Helsby, United Kingdom 11396 Reviewed 1 week ago Good clean accomodation, tastefully furnished. We booked 4 rooms in the curly tail accommodation, though on this occasion did not have our dogs with us. We were attending a wedding locally. We booked online direct with the hotel. Communication by email was good. All rooms were tastefully appointed and looked recently done. All beds were very comfortable and all 9 in our group slept well. Breakfasts were well presented and well cooked. Certainly a plateful of good local products (loved the bacon and black pudding). We enjoyed the pub and will definitely return for a weekend stay as there appears to be lots of walking and places of interest to explore. Thank you for a really pleasurable stay and apologies we checked in a little later than was originally anticipated.

"Sunday Lunch" yesterdayReviewed by Doreen S Enjoyed Sunday lunch with friends at this very welcoming and extremely friendly pub. There was a good menu for lunch and it was all served quickly and hot. Requests were met without any difficulty and everything was served with a smile. We all enjoyed banter and jokes with the owner and we would have no hesitation in going back there if we are in the area again- would even like to give the hotel a try.

Reviewed 3 days ago one to visit A clean friendly pub with an excellent selection of real ales and a menu to make you drool and at reasonable prices. The service was excellent and the locals very friendly. I am happy to recommend this pub whether just for a pint or a full evening meal.
