Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A place that draws us back.’ A regular Guide reader, in 2016, paid a third visit to Robert Lyons and Lesley Wheeler’s former staging post on the Leven estuary. ‘The obvious delights are the position – right at the water’s edge across from Morecambe Bay – and the subsequent views.’ Inside, ‘the owners make you feel very welcome.’ The rooms aren’t huge (‘remember, it’s a pub-with-rooms’), and a guest this year thought housekeeping could be better, but each room is ‘adequate and comfortable’, with board games, books and magazines. Six estuary bedrooms, at a slight premium, have French doors opening on to a terrace. ‘Those views make up for the size of the room.’ Downstairs, ‘the pub is warm, cosy and welcoming’, with log fires, comfy seating and fun ornaments. Afternoon tea is ‘a home-made treat’. Book ahead for dinner (a single sitting) in the candlelit conservatory, where Robert Lyons’s ‘well-presented’, ‘full-flavoured’ dishes – perhaps braised Lakeland lamb shank – are ‘extremely good’. Next morning, enjoy an ‘exceptional’ cooked breakfast. ‘Terrific value for money.’ (Christine Hodgkin, and others)
