Good Hotel Guide Review
By the water’s edge, watching the tide race in at Robert Lyons and Lesley Wheeler’s pub-with-rooms is a thrilling sight. The inn was once a stop-over for coaches and horses crossing the sands to Lancaster. These days, its ‘amiable’ comforts draw back birdwatchers, cyclists, walkers, dog owners and fishermen year after year. Afternoon tea in one of the cosy sitting areas is enjoyed. Freshly decorated bedrooms have a seasidey touch, each supplied with board games, books, magazines; six rooms have balconies that overlook the Levens estuary. Robert Lyons’s candlelit dinners (between 7 pm and 8.15 pm) are popular with residents and locals; reservations may be needed. ‘Everything was beautifully done; we especially enjoyed the excellent fish dishes.’ Breakfasts are ‘exceptional’.
