I thought it was a bit expensive for the amount of food we got but I did really enjoy what I had. I loved the vegan menu - it gave me and my husband a lot of choice, which makes a nice change!!

Just keeps getting better and better- such a thoughtful establishment complete with walking routes, dog treats and much more. Vegan fish and chips is a triumph!

INTERESTING READING!! ONCE BITEN-TWICE SHY 27/04/19 - 5pm I leave really honest and fair FEEDBACK, the trouble with MOST establishments IS, THEY GLADLY TAKE THE GOOD FEEDBACK BUT USUALLY CRITISISE AND RETALIATE ON THE BAD! I read a review of someone saying, "What ever happened to, "THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RITE" and the manager's reply being.. "When the customer is WRONG" great comment in reply, but its a pitty they DONT take on board NEGATIVE comments! In my book, having been a business owner, the customer is NOT always rite as far as I am concerned, this was a comment MADE-UP purley for people "as an EXCUSE" looking to either get a reduction on something or better still, for them to get "SOMETHING FOR NOTHING" my personal opinion of course! ANYWAY ON WITH MY REVIEW: Upon arriving, Saturday teatime, I was very suprised to see how quiet the place was, given the day and time, never a great sign, although we did receive a promptvwarm welcome and seated quickly, Although that IS what I WOULD expect having PRE BOOKED! Once seated, we were immediately asked if we required drinks, WATER all round please, ALL NON drinkers, yet on (4) separate occasions, we were asked if we wanted drinks from the bar, CLEARLY "PUSHEY HARD SELL ON DRINKS" beit Alcoholic or soft, as far as I am concerned, as well as being IGNORANT to the FACT of being told that we were ALL NON drinkers of Alcohol, the waitress CLEARLY DIDN'T listen OR simply chose to IGNORE what I told her, Irraspective, you should ONLY need to be TOLD once, and NOT ask again, let alone 4 times, AND BY THE SAME WAITRESS!! IF A CUSTOMER WANTS ANYTHING OTHER THAN WATER, THEY WILL ASK FOR IT! The 4 starters turned up in good time as I'd again expect being quiet, The starters were plentiful and delicious. The mains again, arrived in good time, BUT for £22.00 that is "INDISPUTABLY THE SMALEST AND MOST EXPENSIVE STEAK ON THIS PLANET" .. CERTAINLY THE SMALLEST AND MOST EXPENSIVE THAT I HAVE "EVER HAD" ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, I AM 56 AND WELL TRAVELLED! even Gordon Ramsey could only AGREED with my comment him being in my shoes on the evening! The steak was cooked as to my request and was admittedly nice BUT NO WAY ON THIS EARTH WORTH £22.00, the rest of the meal was VERY poor, LUKE WARM PLATE NEARER INFACT TO COLD, The carrots were RUBBERY and came UN-PEELED WITH THE REMINANTS OF THE STORKES STILL LEFT INPLACE which WAS SOMEWHAT OFF PUTTING, I'd go as far as to say "LAZY" TO PRESENT AS A MEAL IN THAT MANNER! The baby pea-pods, paper thin and cold. The chips were FROZEN CHUNKY CHIPS that WERE UNDER COOKED AND HARD, and to deck it all off, something that LOOKED like SHOGGY GREEN TOILET PAPER literally SPLATTED on the side of the plate, which was IMMEDIATELY disgarded by myself.. very off putting in it's presentation! 2 of the 4 mains was ARTIFICIAL FISH and chips.. "VEGAN" both were that BAD they were LEFT AFTER THE FIRST MOUTHFUL! Due to the cost and my picking up the entire bill for the 4 of us, it being MY daughters 21st birthday treat, I asked for a doggy bag for both of the vegan fish which were left, to take home FOR MY DOG "Which went down like a lead balloon, CLEARLY TAKEN AS AN INSULT.. BUT NOT AS INSULTIVE AS MY £22 MEAL THAT WAS WORTH IN MY EYES NOT A PANNY MORE THAN £5.00 MAXIMUM, and this is how bad the vegan fish was, upon getting home "EVEN THE DOG WOULDNT TOUCH IT!! She tried to eat the tin-foil it was wrapped in but WOULDNT eat the vegan fish! That says ENOUGH! CLOSING COMMENTS: Would I go again? NOT a cats, NOT EVEN on a FREEBIE! Would I recommend this place? ONLY TO SOMEONE I WANTED REVENGE ON! I'VE LITERALLY EATEN "BETTER FOOD" AT A BURGER BAR OUTSIDE B&Q "LITERALLY FAR BETTER FOOD, AND "AT A MIDGES OF THE COST!!" A REGULAR COMMENT I READ IN FEEDBACKS, AND ALSO HEARD WITH MY OWN EARS FROM THE STAFF/MANAGEMENT ON MORE THAN 1 OCASSION DURING MY VISIT WAS.. "ITS NOT FOR EVERONE" CLEARLY, A "WELL REHURST LINE IN THERE DEFENCE" !!! NOT A GOOD ONE.. NOR ACCEPTABLE IM AFRAID! I'LL PUT MY NECK ON THE LINE AND SAY THAT THIS PLACE WONT REIGN LONG AND WILL SOON BE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT!

Quality pub food not too fancy just perfect! Love that even the dogs can join in and have a meal in the bar area that's a great idea.

Had a really enjoyable evening. Friendly & welcoming. Excellent menu that catered for all. Loved the vegan menu. Excellent for a vegetarian to have a choice of dishes. Haven’t had such a choice since the height of BSE. Thank you

I love coming her when I visit my aunty in Blackburn, it's even better that it is dog friendly, you always make my dog some sausage and mash which isn't on the dog menu which he loves, staff are very friendly, professional and the environment along with the food is fantastic, thank you

Amazing food, such a good variety of vegan options! We got the vegan fish and chips which was so so good. Not too pricy either! The staff are really friendly & helpful, the pub decor is beautiful with a lovely atmosphere - warm open fires and dogs allowed. Cant wait to go back to try something new on the menu.

The vegan menu is fantastic! One if the best pub vegan menus. Love the pop corn tofu it’s amazing, also maple cauliflower, nachos and flatbread are super yummy! The pate is a bit expensive, not a fan of the fish and chips or apple crumble. Great pub, lovely staff. Highly recommend. Will be going back frequently.
