Using only freshly sourced Lancashire ingredients, including fresh seasonal vegetables, juicy steaks, fresh fish along with deliciously prepared vegetarian options, we have a menu to suit all tastes. Being right on the North Lancashire and South Cumbria border, the Longlands Inn is surrounded by farmers offering some great local specialties. Fell-bred and salt-marsh lamb, fabulous cheeses, freshly-caught fish, are then all expertly prepared and cooked by our brilliant resident chef Mark Swanson.

As a covid compliant establishment, we ask that all our dining parties are from one household/bubble and there is no mixing of households within the restaurant or bar areas. Thank you for your co-operation.

We were allowed to get settled before we were asked did we want any drinks, which I liked because i don’t like being asked straight away. Seating is spaced because of the current situation, service was excellent and food was excellent I had no complaints at all. The hotel looks very nice although we weren’t staying there we were talking to a couple who were staying in the apartments and they said they value for money.

Booking was simple and even with restrictions being in place, it seemed very homely and a relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed our meals a lot and found them good value for money. Would maybe have liked a couple of other choices on the menu, still with the good quality food theme but a little more simple, as we had 2 teenagers with us who would have liked a little more choice as they don't like anything too fancy. They enjoyed the sausage and mash but left a lot of the trimmings - still enjoyed it none the less. Would definitely go back and recommend

Staff are doing really well with all the new measures in place for COVID19. The only downside was the lighting where we were sat was very poor so it was difficult to see what we were eating. We had a reservation made for later in the week and asked for a table with better lighting, the lady said choose your table as your the only one's booked in so far, so fingers crossed for next time. Food was very good, fish & chips, Flat ironed steak, Lamb steak, all got good reviews. Staff were attentive without being over bearing. All were wearing face masks which must make them warm, so very well done to them.

Didn’t feel covid secure, I didn’t see hand gel and tables where quite close together. There was a member of staff constantly wiping his nose with his hand and sneezing into his hands without washing them. Luckily he did not serve our table otherwise I would have left. With everything that is going on at the minute staff hygiene should be most important. Staff also not wearing visors I would not return

Wonderful place. Great starter. Main meal was a little disapointing (for all four of us). Desert should have been piping hot with some icecream, it was not. Personnel were really helpful.

Went there expecting something special and was greeted with bland pub food. Ordered garlic mushrooms to start no garlic and bread was burnt and not easy to cut through.
Burger was nothing special.

Menu was quite limited but they were able to accommodate my vegetarian son with sausage and mash. Food came quickly and was very good. Gentleman who served us was very helpful. We wanted pizza but they only do that on a Thursday so we had to go back the next night. We weren’t given the pizza menu and had to ask for it. Pizza was delicious

Excellent food, service and value.
My concern was with the lack of, or should I say non existent mask/visor wearing of the staff.. went in at the front door as advised and no hand sanitiser, left through the side door again no hand sanitizer.
Very few people adhering to the one way system in place...
No one took any details for track and trace, but as I booked online through the open table app I presume our details are taken from there if needed????
Disappointed and not what I expected with this establishment, I would have thought they would have been on the ball with this.

Just sorry to see staff not wearing face shield. This is a reason we would think twice before coming back. The service was good and the food.
