Dinner was exceptional, a wide variety of choice and the four of us in our party enjoyed every mouthful. Breakfast was good too with a varied menu to choose from and they were able to serve Decaf tea! Most of all the young staff are amazing, friendly, and polite and extremely helphful.

A warm welcome from friendly staff, good beer and wine and a great busy restaurant. Rooms are modern, clean, comfortable and well fitted out with all you could need. A good hearty breakfast sent us on our way refreshed, well fed and content. This is not the first time we have stopped there and certainly wont be our last.

'Just a few miles from Blackpool we came across the most wonderful weekend break in the fabulous Catrford Inn beside the river Wyre .We managed to grab the last 2 rooms on a very busy weekend ,they were both gorgeous,luxurious,quirky ,( hate that word but it describes beautifully how they were not run of the mill hotel rooms ) stylish ,contemporary mixed with old French charm and most important spotlessly clean .We arrived on beautiful sunny afternoon so the place was \"rockin\" in a very good way .The staff many very young were very busy,very cheerful ,very knowledgeable so I\'m guessing all very well trained a credit to the management .Dinner was fabulous ,imaginative with lots of classics ,brilliantly presented and above all delicious and despite the busy evening the service was smooth and prompt .Breakfast was great ,plenty of choice local yoghurts and granola ,fresh fruit ,pastries and hot homemade croissants,full English ,smoked salmon ,I could go on ! All in all a brilliant place to stop if you like good food and wine (oh and real ales ! ) Great atmosqhere in lovely surroundings ,Go ,stay and enjoy only not when I want to go next as I\'m determined to book the room with the roof terrace !'

Wedding Anniversary Celebration
5 stars 5

'We decided to book The Cartford Inn to celebrate our 19th Wedding Anniversary after celebrating our friend\'s 50th Birthday earlier this year; we were so impressed by the whole place - very unique indeed. From the moment I made the booking the staff could not do enough to please. Our room was the original honeymoon suite (Rm 3) and it is beautiful...lots of lovely personable touches, beautifully decorated and a fabulous view. We celebrated with friends (6 of us in total) and what a fantastic meal we had. Superbly presented, tasted delicious and all the staff were extremely friendly and very efficient. I loved the atmosphere which you feel the moment you walk in. I love the quirky, individual and very homely interior of the whole place. Lots of thought has gone into every detail of this little gem...thank you to everyone for making my Wedding Anniversary so special...can\'t wait for our next visit! Deborah & Neil Maitland'

The buzz in the bar, restaurant and from out the garden was just right for bank holiday. The croissants at breakfast were dreamy - as looked the full English which we avoided.

Everyone who works here oozes passion and they make you feel at home and comfortable. The place is quirky and inviting and we plumped for the penthouse this time and it was really worth it, shame it was raining or we could have enjoyed the private balcony more, will have to come again in summer! Everything is well thought out and leaves you wanting nothing. The food at breakfast and tea was fantastic, we wish it was our local it was that good. Also to mention the taste of the inn shop. We bought a few things, including our lunch for when we got home. Nothing was too much trouble for the young lad serving he was extremely helpful and attentive.

'returned home yesterday from the most fantastic weekend away at the Cartford Inn. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were looked after, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff who were always polite and friendly. Our stay was a Christmas present for my partner prompted from spending a couple of summers days in the Cartford Inn garden when we began dating a few years ago. When booking and upon arrival I was really indecisive as to which room we wanted to stay in because they all looked lovely. We were shown around the two rooms I was most torn between and after A couple of drinks at the bar to decipher we turned down the room with a view in favour of the room with the rolltop bath. I was happy with our decision because the weather was miserable all weekend. Our room was beautiful, we had the best two nights sleep as the bed was so comfortable and watching a movie whilst relaxing in the bath was a fabulous experience making up for the heavy rain preventing us from venturing outside. Being huge seafood lovers I pre-ordered the Grand Fruits De Mer for our 1st nights meal. I\'m not sure what I expected but when it took two members of staff to carry this mountain of seafood to our table we were blown away, I have never seen anything like it. It was a seafood feast! lobster, giant crab claws, huge prawns, pre-shelled prawns, muscles, clams, oysters, bread and sauces. I\'m a little ashamed to say we devoured the lot. Breakfast was just as good, pastries, cereals, fruits, cooked breakfasts, tea, coffee and fresh juice. I had my eyes on a choux bun from the dessert menu all weekend but have just not had the room to fit it in so we bought two from the new Deli shop to take home with us, yummy! Between the pair of us we cannot fault anything, the staff, the venue, the food ALL AMAZING. We are hoping to make a stay at the Cartford Inn an annual event, might try a little nearer to summer next time so we can optimize the purpose of the room with a view.'

We had a midnight snack arriving late from the airport (delicious with the house beer) and a big diner with our family. Great food, lovely presentation, great wine selection, very good service. The french owner and cook combines french and english cooking in a fabulous way! His English wife fills the whole place with a friendliness and warmness that you feel like being home.

'This was the occasion of my wife\'s birthday and we stayed overnight with our two daughters with us - it was their first visit and they left just as impressed (as ever) as we were. A sumptuous afternoon meal preceded a drink or two (or three) in the bar in the evening. We visited TOTI which was stunning and generally marvelled again at the ambience of everything that is The Cartford. The view of the Bowland Fells at early-morning sunrise was stunning, as was the breakfast. And all of this with a backdrop of customer service of the highest order - during breakfast, I recognised a track on the loop and asked one of the staff if she could confirm the title for me. This she did (\'Alice\' by Tom Waits) and whoever put the play list together has also got very good taste. A quality stay in quality surroundings - can\'t wait for the next time. Thanks to the Cartford team - a team is certainly what you are.'

However we arrived mid afternoon having travelled from Telford to be told we couldn\'t get anything to eat as the chef did not come in until 5:00pm. It seems that no-one else had the skill to make a sandwich! And the promised Deli did not open until the following Monday. And at the end of the evening, when attempting to get a final nightcap the 6 men standing at the bar were told the bar was shut. None of us had been informed of a last orders call.'

the Best
5 stars 5

'We have been to stay at the Cartford Inn with our In Laws who are elderly and my Father in Law is disabled, they were given the best room for disabled people with an amazing wet room and losts of space, the room was on the ground floor so it made it so much easier for them, our room was on the first floor but was lovely. THe staff were so helpful and couldnt have done enough for us, the breakfast, I think, was the best that we have had, beautifully cooked and a lovely choice of very good quality foods, Craig who helped us at breakfast was fantastic, so entertaining and was so so helpful with our In Laws, Thank you Craig. We had the evening meal on both evenings and the food is second to none, excellent we couldnt fault any of it. The surroundings of the Inn is also beautiful situated on the river and very tranquil. The could definitely recommend this little gem, we will definitely be back. Thank you so much to all the staff but especially Craig'

Just a couple of things that would if made a difference would be somewhere to hang towels to dry . A towel rail next to sink for hand towel we had to put it on toilet lid. When doing my hair there is no mirror where the desk is so I had to sit on floor in front of wardrobe to do hair and make up. Only small things but it would of been helpful. All in all a wonderful stay with a wonderful meal and breakfast . I wanted to book for Xmas but your already full . Thankyou it won\'t let me put 4 stars !!'

Birthday treat
5 stars 5

'We stayed overnight. At the Cartford to celebrate my husband\'s 75th birthday and we were not sorry we did. Nice welcome and taken straight to our room. Well appointed. Windows overlooking the river made for a pleasant view. We went for a walk up the river then returned to the Inn for a well earned G&T sat on the pleasant terrace. The meal at night, served in the buzzing restaurant, was excellent in every respect. We had asked for a nice table and I think we got the best in the house. Breakfast next morning was very good, all freshly cooked. The staff were all pleasant and efficient. We were so glad we\'d chosen The Cartford for our special celebration. One thing, I would have appreciated a small fridge in the room but this is only a very small minus.'

The Room although small had a lovely bathroom and view over the river, the evening meal was excellent and breakfast was good also. My only very small niggle was that there was a slight \'morning after\' feel at breakfast rather than it being a event in its own right. But this is only an observation, as generally everything was excellent and I would highly recommend.'

'The Cartford Inn makes the best of its gentle estuary view and old cart bridge. As you walk through the door your eyes are drawn to the quirky pictures, painted driftwood and local glass art. The theatrical and imaginative style is transported to the fabulous bedrooms. Our room had a huge skylight window, perfect for star gazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meal which was perfectly balanced - just enough room to squeeze in a dessert! We were lucky enough to be offered a taster of oysters lightly cooked with garlic and crumb topping - divine! The young staff were all friendly, helpful and clearly enjoyed their work environment. At breakfast there was a good variety and once again, cooked perfectly.'

The room (8) was also warm and welcoming with quirky shutters on the river view windows. Bathroom was fresh and clean with a nice big shower to boot. The visit ended with a good breakfast and a chat with the enthusiastic owner who gave a recount of the progression of the Inn from 2007 and what is to come.

'On the very odd occasion i have received the kind of hospitality and service that makes me want to return to a place time and time again. There\'s a little cosy cottage cafe on the way up Snowdon in Wales where the owner Steffan will go out of his way to welcome his customers and you feel the warmth and genuine passion he has for his place. I last visited Steffan in 2013 and have not been treated as well in any establishment i have visited in the past 18 months since.........and then i visited The Cartford Inn. This place is as good as any place ive ever stayed. The welcome was warm, our room was amazing, the decor was superb, the youthful enthusiastic staff were a credit to the place. A special mention to a young man called Sonny who was in charge during the evening of our visit. He could not do enough for us and took the time to show us all the rooms and the penthouse suite which was absolutely stunning. The cask ale was faultless and the food was top quality. Breakfast was excellent and again the service was so good i didnt want to leave. All in all, this is as good as it gets in my opinion. I cant say enough about how attentive the staff were. I will return as soon as i get a chance. Yes, its not the cheapest in the area but there are plenty of two for ones and premier inns around if you so choose. If you want something memorable, go to the Cartford. An absolute gem.'

We couldn\'t have had a nicer stay - a warm welcome, fabulous room (8) with a comfy bed and great bathroom, and a tasty dinner in a \'buzzing\' restaurant (although not sure the fire needed to be quite so roaring - we were boiling!). The young staff we were served by in the bar, at dinner and then at breakfast are a credit to the place. It was a fabulous mini break and we will find an excuse to return.'

'Having dined at the Cartford Inn several times and always had wonderful meals in this chic restaurant, we decided to stay over as part of our wedding anniversary celebration. Our room was beautifully furnished and overlooking the river as all the rooms do. At dinner we chose quite a few of the specials - my spider crab starter was awesome - as were all the courses, including a delicious Venison Rossini which my daughter's fiance had and we all chose the chocolate fondant dessert! Unsurprisingly it was extremely busy but the service was friendly, attentive and unhurried. We sat on the very pleasant terrace overlooking the river in the sunshine - it was sublime! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Cartford as a delightful inn both to dine and to stay.'

'My wife & I decided to stay at The Cartford Inn for our wedding anniversary, after having had a flying visit on the way to Blackpool earlier in the year. I had pre-booked the room and table a while ago and organise, with the help of Abi to have little extras for the occasion. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble in helping to make our stay special. The room was beautiful, perfect size with a lovely shower room & Two Juliet balconies to look out across the River Wyre. Our table in the New Fire dining room was also overlooking the river. The whole place has a lovely relaxed yet organised feel to it. Every staff member I interacted with was extremely pleasant and effecient (without being robotic). The food was first class without being over-priced. There is a vast collection of artwork decorating the venue, some quirky stuff by local artists and high class photography too, all of which you can but if you like. The decor appears to be ever-changing throughout the building, quite earty in places and yet shabby chic or modern in others. That said, it really (for me anyway) works very well. Whoever decides on the appearance of the Cartford knows what they are doing. I would reccommend (and have!!) to anybody wanting a relaxed evening (or weekend) with quality food, atmosphere & accomodation to give this hidden gem a try'

Lovely place to stay

'We booked 7 rooms to celebrate a 90th birthday and have a rare family reunion as they are spread between Bolton, Prestatyn, Hull,London , Pulborough, Brighton, Storrington and Dubai. We booked a meal on the Saturday and everyone enjoyed their choice. The rooms were very comfortable and large choice for breakfast. Lovely setting and very quiet location. The pub/restaurant was very busy both nights which created just the right atmosphere.'

'I thoroughly enjoyed my second stay at the Cartford Inn. The rooms are spacious and relaxing and the setting is extremely tranquil. The food is superb and the staff are friendly and very accommodating. I will definitely be staying again when I'm next up in the area in a few weeks time. My only improvement (and this is just personal preference, rather than a criticism) would be a toaster in the breakfast area, so that I could toast the bread to my liking and it would still be hot enough for the butter to melt.'

4 stars 4

'We had taken lunch at the Cartford Inn on a couple of ocassions recently and enjoyed our meal. So, for my 84th birthday my wife suggested we had dinner there and spent the night. An excellent well appointed ground floor room was ideal for a disabled elderly man. Spacious bedroom with comfortable bed and bathroom with plenty of necessary grab rails Dinner was first class, portions a little on the large side for me but my grandsons would have welcomed them. The "nibbles" of calmari made a good starters and the roast belly pork was superb. Vegetables were properly coked still with a little crunch left in them. My wife pronounced her venison pie gorgeous but sadly we ha no room left either for the enticing puddings or for the cheese board. This is not an elegant Michelin starred restaurant but it is first class "pub-grub"'

And a chef who on hearing hat I did not care for a particular sauce with the special of the day volunteered to make a different one albeit at a busy time in the restaurant. This typified for us the genuine customer interest that all without exception semed to have at heart. If we have a minor reservation it would be the quirky wallpaper decor of Room 12 - it might appeal to many but not to us.'

'Cartford Inn is one of the best countryside hotels i have seen. A perfectly located hotel just next to a river and a short drive to Lakes District. I can imagine the perfect environment in spring and summer. Although it was autumn it was still very lovely. Cozy and sophisticated rooms with traditional English furniture. Very very delicious restaurant. As i stayed one night only, i had the chance to try sea food only, but they were absolutely perfect. I can still remember the luscious taste of scallops... Slightly over expensive, but definitely worth for a special occasion'

I don't think it was just a reaction to having stayed in the corporate anonymity of the nearby Marriott the night before, the Cartford isn't Claridges but just has the feel that it was put together with thought, originality and by people who actually give a s**t unlike the major chains.

A Gem in the Middle of Nowhere
5 stars 5

'This is a delightful inn adjacent to the Cartford Toll Bridge over the River Wyre. It has been completely rebuilt and extended. I stayed 2 nights and had bedroom no.11 in the old part of the building. The refurbishment of the large bedroom was sumptuous with bags of room around the large bed. The shower-room/WC was built into the room and provided a large walk-in shower but at the expense of space for the wash-basin and WC. This produced the only real problem as the WC was so close to the wall that one's left thigh was against it and one ends up sitting somewhat skewed to the right. It's lucky that I am right-handed!! About the only person who might be able to use it in the usual fashion would be a slim fashion model without an ounce of fat on her. There was no electric razor point that I could discover. However, none of this detracted from the overall comfort of the accommodation. The food was faultless (Salad Landais followed by shredded oxtail in a steamed suet pudding - heaven) served by attentive staff. The beer was... well, 4 real ales, all of them of the area and all eminently quaffable. Next time I will return with my wife for a more leisurely stay, but will request a room with slightly more space in the ablutions area!!'

'My husband and I stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our 10th wedding anniversary. The beautiful place where we had our actual wedding has sadly closed and had to cancel our booking which we were very disappointed by. We started to look for somewhere new to celebrate our anniversary and decided to book a room at 'The Cartford Inn' after it was recommended to us by a friend. I can definitely say we have now found 'our' new special place. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite which was luxurious. It was perfectly clean and smelt lovely. The facilities were fantastic. It was lovely relaxing in a deep bath looking out at the sky and clouds drifting by. We enjoyed the terrace in the morning as the sun came up. The bed was so very comfy and everything felt so soft even the carpet. The staff were amazing. Very friendly, helpful and professional but genuine. They really seemed to love being part of the Inn. The entire place had a very relaxed atmosphere which was great. We also enjoyed the food. We had an evening meal together and sat at a table in the River Lounge looking out over the river. I had fillet steak which I do usually have when eating out somewhere but the steak at The Cartford Inn was the best I have ever eaten. I cannot wait to go back for a meal and try something different, I'm sure I won't be disappointed! We also had breakfast in the River Lounge again over looking the River which was just lovely. There was a very good choice of breakfast foods and again the food was delicious. The only disappointing part of our stay at The Cartford Inn was having to leave. We will definitely be going back for meals together and with family. We also want to stay there again whenever we can. I highly recommend The Cartford Inn xxx'

Had a relaxing stay in a comfortable stylish room with a superb walk in shower you don't want to get out of. Excellent food with good choice. Well kept ales in the bar, although i was left feeling a little "Older" and more "Peculiar" in the morning after more than a few Theakstons. Staff are friendly, attentive but not overbearing. The whole place has a great feel and ambiance. Highly recommended, the perfect package. We were made to feel very welcome by owners Julie and Patrick, many thanks. Will definately be returning in the future, Ian and Cath'

Very cousy hotel
4 stars 4

'Very nice stay, in very nice and cousy rooms. Always smiling and pleasant staff. Rooms where tidy and nicely decorated. Food and beverage was of Very high quality, without being overpriced. Good atmosphere during the weekend. Book table for dinner Friday and Saturday. It was full, without being overcrowded. For sure a place to come back to. If I were to mention any negative issues it would be bed pillows. Simply to hard. Plenty of them but all same type. Should be possible to choose, but I never asked so I do not blame hotel.'

Comfortable Bed, well appointed ensuite, very welcome Coffee making facilities and complementry mineral Water. We ate in the Pub with a group of friends, 6 in total, the food was excellent, and staff very polite and professional. The inclusion in the list of 50 Top Gastro Pubs is well deserved. Breakfast was enjoyable, with top quality ingredients. The Sausage was the best I've ever been served at a Hotel, so top marks there. We'd certainly return.'

'I recently hosted a business dinner for 5 people. The accommodation was first class; elegant rooms with sumptuous furnishings and design (not your normal pub/restaurant accommodation). The pub/restaurant was a mixture of locals and visitors with a fabulous ambiance. Clearly people come here to enjoy the food which was superb. The calamari was one of the star dishes and that was only a taster before the starters came. The duck egg starter was also exceptional. We finished with coffees and calvados and even Japanese beer! In short, everything was perfect! Highly recommended!!'

'The Cartford Inn made for an ideal base for our leisurely tour of the coastal resorts of Lancashire. Just a few miles from Blackpool, it was an oasis of calm and quiet. Our bedroom overlooked the River Wyre, as did our table for dinner and breakfast. The food was excellent, the welcome warm, the decor impressive and our room luxurious. Our only gripe was about the mattress, which was a little soft, but other than that it was ideal and we'll be keen to return.'

They would all ask me if it had arrived each time they saw us. Friends joined us for a meal that night and we all enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

We added chunky chips to the order, everything was delicious. The Cartford has a good selection of wine and beer. Breakfast was relaxed affair, overlooking the river.

At breakfast the next morning there was a good choice altough we did not avail ourselves of the cooked options. The second evening we dined in therestaurant with a party and it was heaving ; obviously this is THE place to dine locally. The food was again excellent altough the service tailed off a bit towards the end of the evening ( most of the waiting staff appeared to be students but were well trained and keen). Again our second night was comfortable and breakfast excellent. Unusally we were not asked for any payment or credit card impront until we left - refreshing change from most hotels nowadays. I would thoroughly recommend this establishment and will try to come again when we next come to this part of the country.'

'Excellent all round, well worth a destination visit. A prime example of attention to detail in all aspects. Tastefully decorated rooms, with some quirkiness thrown in for extra measures. The bar is very welcoming, nice selection of unusual beers, or the main brands if you prefer. The food is just prefect, nice balance of local produce, tasteful presentation, good size portions, and the friendliest of staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay, would defiantly go back'

A perfect anniversary treat
5 stars 5

'Having stayed here for the first time in September, the Cartford Inn was the obvious choice for a night away, to celebrate our Wedding anniversary with a group of friends and just before Christmas too! Rooms duly booked, we arrived to find our friends already ensconced in the bar and enjoying the special atmosphere there and a few good ales also! Checking in, we were delighted to hear that all the rooms for our party had been upgraded and that we were to be occupying the Penthouse suite!! Thank you very much Julie! Having only viewed this on the website, it must be said that it lived up to all expectations. Extremely spacious and comfortable, it would have been a shame not to have enjoyed both the roll top bath and the huge double shower! The beginning of a wonderful night. The dinner was of the same high quality as the last time, everything perfectly cooked, the service impeccable and the breakfast next day was delicious. A good time was had by all. Happy New Year 2013 to you all at the Cartford Inn and I am sure we will be finding some good excuse to be back there!'

'We booked the Cartford Inn for our wedding anniversary based on the reviews on trip advisor, and we were not disappointed. As it was Christmas, the Inn was trimmed up beautifully, but even without the magic of Christmas, it is easy to see that it will still have the same charm all year round. The room was beautiful, and the attention to detail (such as having the key for the lights matching the wallpaper!) was second to none. The food in restaurant and also at breakfast was gorgeous and very well priced for the quality on offer. We hope this review isn't too "gushing" but we can honestly say this was one of the best hotels we've stayed in. We would not hesitate to return, and the only thing that would possibly keep us away is that there is a whole country out there to explore. On the other hand.....'

'Just got back from surprise night for my wife. She was blown away with the incredible quality of this Inn! We have eaten here on several occasions before and not been disappointed and so it was once more. The bedroom was superb, just one minor thing, would have liked bed to be a little bit softer, but you can't please everyone. Lovely warm room, big bed and extremely clean! Lovely touches in room, cafetiere, so proper coffee! Lovely soaps and shampoos and fantastic roll top bath! Food both at night and at breakfast was superb! I particularly enjoyed my poached pears, lamb hot pot and christmas ice cream and pudding! My wife loved the pebby's bread and carrot cannellini beans and cumin soup. At breakfast the extremely attentive staff informed us that my salmon was from Fleetwood docks and is a favourite of the Queen! The owners are rightly proud of their excellent Inn. Julie showed us some of the other rooms and they all met with our seal of quality particularly for me the penthouse suite! If you stay anywhere on the Fylde coast it has to be here! We only travelled a few miles from home and it felt a million miles away! Fantastic!'

Wyre in the blood
5 stars 5

'Situated on the banks of the River Wyre, the Cartford Inn is a real discovery. The ambience is excellent and the natives were very friendly to a southerner up from London on business. I was there on a cold October night but inside the Cartford it was warm and welcoming; big log fire, excellent well kept beers served by friendly and knowledgeable staff, comfortable bars and restaurant and pleasantly busy all night - but very quiet (inside and out) after closing time. What's not to like?. I stayed in the room with the roll-top bath and it's something you just have to use - and by that I mean that you just have to use it. There is a small wash hand basin set alongside the lavatory (situated in a separate small room carved out of the bigger one) but it is petite and really only usable for a shave and a hand and face wash. If, like me, you like a shower of a morning it's into the bath with you. The water is very hot and plentiful and the supplies of toiletries are of excellent quality while the towels are large and fluffy and warm. The bed is comfortable and I slept like a log. The wooden floors creak a bit but then the place is 200 years old so what do you expect?. Breakfast was quite simply, superb. Locally sourced food; bacon, sausage, butter, bread, eggs etc. The choice is remarkable and the quality is great. I travel a lot on business and have stayed in UK hotels that would charge £25 (and more) for such great food - except that it wouldn't be anywhere near as good. The people I was meeting with told me that the lunches and dinners at the Cartford are equally splendid. I was there only for bed and breakfast so didn't get the chance to try either but I believe my local colleagues! I shall return in better weather and in company with my wife to stay again and try the evening menu. Thanks to all there for a great experience. I was going to write "good luck" but the success and strength of the Cartford is down to hard work and dedication. Thank you!'

'For those of you who are staying in the hotels on a regular bases, due to the type of work you do, being homesick is a regular felling which is hard to shake off. Missing your family, home cooked food, your own bed and friendly faces is the hardest things I have to put up with regardless of what star hotel I am staying in… and I stayed in some world renowned hotels… and had some of the most extravagant food creations. However, I never managed not to miss my home… terribly. And then I was recommended Cartford Inn. I still miss my family, but this hotel has outstanding chef, friendly and outmost helpful owners and staff, homely and unique decor and excellent accommodation. Every corner of the hotel, every meal, every detail, is done in the way that makes you feel welcome. For that reason Cartford Inn is my home away from home.'

'From the moment we arrived we were lokoked after with real care.The staff were welcoming and helpful. We asked to change rooms.. not, I should say, because there was any problem with our first room which was beautifully presented, but because I had spied the Penthouse room online and asked to swap.This was sorted without any fuss and we found ourselves in accommodation that would put others to shame. A spacious light and well furnished room with all the touches you would expect of a first rate establishment. There is even a private roof-terrace overlooking the river with table and chairs. Whilst no room service is officially provided when I asked at the bar for a drink I was told it would be brought up to me, a welcome touch. Food in the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced and we had no qualms eating there both nights of our stay. They even prepared a starter for me that wasn't officially on the menu.Breakfasts were excellent...local produce, you see.! The final act of kindness came on checkout when the very friendly owner,Julie, discounted the cost of one of our nights because we had stayed for two! Now you rarely, if ever, see that. All in all a great place to unwind and treat yourself. Couldn't praise it highly enough.'

Everything we had hoped for
5 stars 5

'Having read many positive reviews about the Cartford Inn, we were all very much looking forward to our overnight stay, with a group of friends, to celebrate my belated 50th Birthday. Following a very nice circular walk along the adjacent riverbank and through nearby cornfields, we very soon settled into a feeling of escapism that the inn provides. Excellent local real ale on tap, we spent a very pleasant afternoon on the patio. The dinner taken later in the restaurant was of a very high standard, the menu varied, meeting the tastes of all of our group. The signature dish of Oxtail and beef suet pudding was delicious! A nice wine selection too. The service by young waiters and waitresses was impeccable, obviously very well trained. Thank you especially, to James for entertaining us at our table at the end of a wonderful evening. Our room was beautiful with two Juliet balconies and views over the river and nearby fields. We could have been in Normandy! Leaving our shuttered windows open, I awoke to the sun just rising, the sound of ducks below on the river and the mooing of cows further along the riverbank. Idyllic! The photos taken do not capture the beauty of the moment. You just have to experience it! After a hearty breakfast, again a vast choice, we then did another two hour walk, attempting to balance the excesses of the night before. On returning to the Inn, we just had to have a last pint before beginning our journeys home. After staying in many establishments pretending to be of a similar standard to the Cartford, we found it to be one of the best yet and we will definitely be returning at some point. A perfect way to celebrate a birthday milestone or any other occasion. Many thanks to Julie and all her Staff for all your efforts and we wish you continued success at the Cartford Inn.'

5 stars 5

'I decided to stay at the Cartford Inn on the basis that I was on business and needed somewhere that offered good value for money that was a short drive from the Blackpool area, thereby avoiding the bright lights and stag / hen do parties... Upon approach, I was reassurred by the tranquil setting alongside the River Wyre and the charming Cartford Toll Bridge. The building itself is spotless and has clearly undergone some level of recent sympathetic redevelopment / extension that has maintained a period feel. I approached the bar and was immediately escorted to my room which offered a high level of comfort and unusually, a Juliet balcony with views overlooking the river and farmland beyond. I immediately felt my stress levels drop!! Dinner that evening was top notch. The menu and drinks choices were broad - I had fish pie and washed it down with two pints of real ale. Superb. Breakfast the following morning was of equal quality - and at the rate I had chosen, included in the price! Overall, I was really impressed and will certainly aim to return when I'm not on business and can stay a little longer than one night!!'

'This was our first visit to the Cartford Inn and I can safely say it will be the first of many. We arrived in time for a great lunch and a pint before talking a walk along the river. We're glad we built up an appetite for dinner - try the beef and oxtail suet pudding! There are several real ales on handpump - all very well kept. We stayed over and our bedroom (room 5) was great: clean, a very comfortable bed and a lovely view over the river. To top it all, this pub stands head and shoulders over the competition for its customer service. From the moment we arrived to when we left Julie and her team made us feel very welcome. All the staff we met were friendly and polite without being overbearing. All in all, I can't recommend this place highly enough.'

Our room had a bed in the middle of the room, first reaction was 'how storage' but then we could see the reason why! As we lay on the bed the view through the French window was breathe taking. The whole room & walk in shower was fabulous. The evening meal accompanied with fine wine was EXCELLENT some of the best food we have eaten (& we eat out EVERY Sunday at a wide range of restraunts). We both slept like babies & in the morning once again enjoyed the beautiful view. Smiles greeted us in the morning & a gorgeous breakfast cooked to perfection. We can only praise EVERY aspect of our stay, the only regret was we couldn't stay longer. We are already looking to visit again. With our grateful thanks to you all.

'Arrived after work on a Friday and started to relax immediately, very friendly welcome with a well deserved pint. To be fair I have stayed before, the food is just as good and the atmosphere as I remember it. Staff are attentive, but not overboard and the young student staff should be looked after by the management, they are all a treasure you should strive to keep! Rooms very comfy with a nice deep bath, essential after a good days strenuous walking. Food reasonable and all round good value, well worth venturing away from the beaten track. We will be back, rest assured, keep the beer cold!!'

Penthouse Treat
5 stars 5

'Dear Julie and Patrick and your fantastic staff, Thanks for the wonderful weekend we spent with you in your Penthouse, we realy did not want to leave. Its not everyday you splash out and we were treating ourselves following my wife's recent operation, We couldnt have chosen anywhere better. We were welcomed personally by Julie when we arrived and this set the tone for a wonderful stay. We had seen the pictures of the Penthouse on the web site but they just do not do it justice. We were wowed by the style, glamour but most of all the comfort of the room . You can get style and glamour but its hard to get comfort as well and this was particularly welcome to us. This room was by far the best we have ever stayed in and we are seasoned travellers. We found it hard to leave the room, but when we did the bar and restaurant did not disappoint. We are regular customers of the Cartford pub and restaurant and have often had wonderful meals here but this was a particularly busy Halloween weekend and the atmosphere was wonderful , full of fun, all the staff dressed in Halloween costumes and some were amazing. We particularly liked the werewolf and the pumpkin, We have loved our stay and thank you all for making it such a wonderful time and memory we will be back. P. S. Sorry we forgot to give they key back, probably subconsciously not wanted to give it back, I will pop in the post tonight. Maria and Davexx'

Classy Cartford Inn
5 stars 5

'The staff and owners are very friendly. The rooms are clean and the decor fantastic. Julie certainly has an eye for interior design. The food and selection was good too. We were there to visit Blackpool illuminations with the children, it was great to mix the tackiness of Blackpool with the classiness of the Cartford Inn. Will certainly recommend to our family and friends and stay again ourselves if ever in the vicinity .'

5 Out Of 5 For The Cartford Inn

'The Cartford Inn is by far one of the nicest hotels that we have ever stayed in! The penthouse was 100% worth the money we spent to stay there, we could have easily stayed for a longer peroid of time. Next time we come and stay at The Cartford Inn we'll definantly be staying for 2 or more days! The food we ate for our evening meal and our breakfast in the restaurant was delicious, the staff were absoulutly brilliant and i can not thank you enough for the service that you provided for us. We will definaantly be staying with you again!!'

Our meal did not disappoint, it was every bit as delicious as before and we enjoyed some beautiful wine and afterwards some live music. Our room was very classically decorated with all the facilities you would expect plus, and this is rare in my experience, a very comfortable, super-kingsize bed. We finished off our visit with a delicious breakfast in the quaint and peaceful setting of the dining area with a promise to ourselves that we will be back next year.'
