Firstly apologies for not posting for a while, I have been collecting new foody hot spots whilst training for the Moonlight Walk for St Catherines Hospice, a 13 1/2 mile walk to raise funds. I have completed this now but whilst training it was often the highlight of the training walk to visit a local pub / cafe for lunch.
Robin Hood Inn, Mawdsley - arrived on spec on a Sunday lunchtime and was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a table for 5 despite being a popular pub for Sunday lunch. Some of the party ordered snack type food , some full meal. Food was plentiful and well cooked, suspect most wasn't made on the premises but that's what you get in a lot of pubs now a days. 6/10
Ley Inn, Whittle le Woods - Visited this establishment a couple of times for lunch on both Saturday and Sunday, the ley inn is a large pub / restaurant so you shouldn't really need to book. Food in pub is very reasonably priced and pretty good portions, but on one visit did have a problem with sloppy service and a kitchen to professing to have run out of eggs !! 5/10
Malt House Farm, Whittle - Part of popular chain of food pubs, slight cut above basic pub grub. Particularly impressed with serving mash with a pie instead of the obiquitous chips with everything. British slant to menu, with Mediterranean influences. Prices slightly above some other local establishments, but I am great believer in you get what you pay for. 7/10
