Lovely Stay For Our Anniversary
We had a lovely weekend at The Cartford Inn. The hotel was beautifully dressed up for Christmas. The room was very comfy and spotlessly clean with a lovely view over the river Wyre. The food was excellent both breakfast and dinner with a great choice of wines and real ales. So we were both happy!The staff were very friendly and super efficient, and didn\'t seem to be phased by how busy the restaurant was each night! I would really recommend this hotel.

Great Service
We had a brilliant 3 night stay at the Cartford Inn (our third visit). The service is exceptional. Accommodation is very comfortable and clean. Everything you could wish for. Breakfasts are exceptional - great quality ingredients! Dinner is rather limited for Vegetarians, with only one main option; however we were told on checking out that we should ask the chef to create something new for our next visit, so we\'ll give it a try next time we are in the area. I can thoroughly recommend the Cartford Inn.

Our Overnight Stay At The Cartford Inn
We had an overnight stay at this beautiful Inn on the1st of December. We arrived early afternoon and enjoyed a tasty late lunch. Our room was clean, bright and comfortable, with a lovely river view. Dinner was excellent, my hubby particularly enjoyed the duck breast. He said it was the best duck he had ever tasted! We had a really lovely evening. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Breakfast on Sunday morning was excellent, with tasty local produce. The staff, as usual, were pleasant, helpful and polite. This was our second stay here and we will most certainly be returning to this beautiful inn.

Wonderful Inn
This was our second overnight stay at The Cartford. This time we were here for a private party in the small function room next to their deli. Everything about The Cartford is just spot on. The function was a fabulous night- food, entertainment and venue all excellent. This and ideal for a smaller group - 27 of us. The main thing I like about The Cartford is the staff - they are usually all fairly young but are always extremely polite, helpful and courteous. I think the owners must take the time to train them and it does show. Thoroughly recommend here for anything from a lunch to an overnight stay to a function.

Food is always of exceptional quality, with both hearty and perfectly executed traditional dishes (their suet pastry for the pudding is divine) to more creative and newer cuisine influences such as the Bao starter we tried and the brilliant smoked whey served with the chocolate cremeaux.

Perfect In Every Way!
Had the most wonderful 3 night stay in one of the new luxury cabins - Robins Nest. To say we were impressed would be an understatement! The attention to detail is just amazing. From the incredible sound system to spinning our decks to admiring the most stunning view on a heated balcony we just couldn\'t ask for more! Breakfast was a wonderful experience, thank you Craig for the best attention and some great reminiscing of childhoods spent in Cleveleys! We ate each evening in the wonderful cosy restaurant. Amazing food served by great staff who genuinely made us feel so welcome. We loved our afternoon visits to TOTI - again special thanks to the lovely staff. It was with heavy hearts we left the beautiful Cartford Inn but most certainly look forward to returning. Thank you everyone for giving us such a special time. You should all be very proud.

A Delightful Discovery
We found and booked The Cartford Inn via the internet. It looked great, and so it proved. The Inn in general, and our room, were really comfortable. The food was outstanding. And the people we met (including the co-owners) were hugely welcoming. Our dinner, bed and breakfast represented outstanding value for money - we shall re-visit as soon as convenient.

We travel from Aberdeen to Sussex down the M6 a number of times a year and stop about half way to overnight. The Cartford Inn is a bit further off the Motorway than we normally do but is absolutely worth the time and effort to get there. 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. Take the short drive you wont be disappointed for an overnight or longer stay.

Nestling just before the quaint toll bridge, this is a real gem. The room beautifully decorated and well thought out to allow you to lie in bed and view the river and surrounding countryside, so relaxing. The staff are attentive, polite professional and they smile. The food is gorgeous, we were there for a private dinner, all the plates returned to the kitchen clean!!

Another Great Stay
We\'ve stayed at the Cartford 3 or 4 times now. Each time has been extremely enjoyable. The best thing about it is that the owners seem to be able to locate intelligent and engaging young people to work for them with unerring accuracy. The monosyllabic grunts one is used to encountering elsewhere are nowhere to be heard at the Cartford. A buzzy and vibrant place to stay.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed here in the last three years and we will definately be back. From booking to leaving everything was perfect. 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.

We only live a few miles up the road and so have eaten here on numerous occasions. I decided to book a nights stay as an early valentines surprise for my husband.

The decor was quirky but worked perfectly and theres no skimping on the fixtures and fittings, for example Ditchfield Glass lighting. The view in the morning as the sun came up over the river was stunning.

Couldnt Fault It
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.

Coming from Germany we stayed 2 nights in the Cartford Inn. The whole hotel is redecorated with a lovely and high quality interior: wonderful bedrooms, great bathrooms, lovely view on a creek, a little delicatessen shop, private dining, quaint terrace.
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. We would even recommend the restaurant if you are on a tour nearby. Reservation recommended (the restaurant was full!).

Quality, Quality, Quality.
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.

Pretty hotel with nicely furnished rooms in a lovely spot by the river.
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.

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.

Good Break
We stayed overnight at the Cartford Inn using a gift token given to us by our daughters. The room was delightful, clean and comfy.
The evening meal was excellent - service was prompt and polite without rushing us. The food was top quality - chowder starter, lamb main and rice pudding sweet.
A delightful experience

A Wonderful Experience From Beginning To End
From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by 3 or 4 people who could not do enough to help us... The room we stayed in was beautiful and stylish and the shower and wet room were amazing. The food was excellent too, and although we were last for breakfast it was still no trouble for the staff.

Even though the Cartfort Inn was busy all day on Easter Sunday, staff went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating throughout. The rooms were large and well appointed,beautifully and individually decorated and impeccably clean. Our bed may be a little hard for some, but we had a beautiful night\'s sleep. The restaurant both for dinner and breakfast lived up to its reputation and based on our experience its awards are well merited.

Great Food In A Fun & Quirky Inn
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.

We stayed at the Cartford Inn on Saturday 28th February for one night in the february package offer(which was very reasonable!!!).

The room we were given was stunning and the view over the river was lovely.

We booked a table for a 3 course dinner in the restaurant and the food and service we received was excellent!

A Great Place To Stay Near The M6
Well worth the 10 min trip off the M6 motorway to stay at a family run Inn that gives a genuine warm welcome and great food in their busy restaurant. 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. Well worth the detour for something a bit different.

Awesome
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.

Simply The Best Restaurant!
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.

We found this hotel to be of the highest quality in service, rooms and meals. Contact was kept by email and a recommendation to book for our evening meal was definitely needed as it was very busy at meal times.
Breakfast was a pleasure in the morning and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended for a different quiet night.

Not The Cheapest But The Best
My fiancee and I stopped in an executive ground floor double room which was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and fitted out and very comfortable. Everything worked and the room provided sufficient toiletries, robes, towels and tea & coffee.

We had visited the restaurant on a previous occasion, our experience then prompted our stay on this occasion. As before the menu offered a good selection and every aspect of our meal was excellent. The (young) staff were friendly but also professional and courteous. we will definitely revisit the Cartford Inn and couldn't recommend it highly enough.

5 Star 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

Excellent Birthday Treat
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"

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
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!!

Can't Wait To Go Back!
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

First Class
Our second visit to the Cartford returning the old TVR back "home" to Blackpool for a visit. 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,

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.

Two Nights Away
We received a warm welcome at the hotel. Our room was comfortable and well equipped and overlooked the river. We enjoyed a pleasant and hearty meal on our first evening; there was a good choice of well prepared food in good quantities - the wine list was excellent for our tastes. 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.

Arrived Friday afternoon for a planned overnight stay with a meal in the restaurant. Got the room at the top of the inn overlooking the river which was lovely.
Dinner in the restaurant again was great. Atmosphere nice and really great staff.
Can only say good things about the quality of the room, the comfiness of the bed, the fabulous shower etc.
Left the next morning after a hearty breakfast eaten whilst looking out of the picture window. Perfect. Thanks for the hospitality.

We had a very pleasant say at the Cartford Inn. The staff were very efficient and the owners made us feel most welcome. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very good as was the food. The view of the river is lovely. Breakfast was superb, the best we have had for a long time, with quality produce. The only thing we didn't get on with we're the knives!!! They felt really unbalance. Had a great stay and hope to return soon.

The Cartford Inn was the most beautiful place to stay, from the warm, tasteful and comfortable surrondings, the gorgeous bedroom we stayed in and delicious food we ate. The place just oozed with care and a passion for doing things well. We felt so relaxed and at home and the only downside is that we only stayed the one night! We will definitely return.

A Perfect Anniversary Treat
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!

Just Perfect!
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.....

Brilliant
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!

After deciding to visit friends in Lancashire we decided to treat ourselves to three nights away at the cartford inn, which following a week in a travel lodge was absolutely amazing! the greeting was friendly, the decor was fantastic, the breakfast was well worth it.

Other perks came in the form of a first class bathroom (the shower was well lush), a tv with full freeview channels, rather than instant coffee each room comes with a cafetierre- all contributing to a first class time away.

Wyre In The Blood
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!

Home Away From Home
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
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.

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!!

Cartford Inn - A Fantastic Weekend!
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.

We stayed at the Cartford Inn for a saturday night a few weeks ago. The setting is very pleasant: views over the river into open countryside, with walks starting from the inn. From our arrival right through to our departure we were made extremely welcome by the owner and all their staff, who were friendly and helpful and stayed calm even on Saturday evening when the bar and restaurant were crowded. Our room was delightful and our evening meal and breakfast were excellent. Many comments have been made about the artwork and decor; yes, it is certainaly eclectic, but we thought it was bright and fun and you just keep finding further things to surprise and delight.

As a mother's day treat we went to 'The Cartford Inn' & we cannot praise it enough. On arrival we were greeted by smiles from ALL the staff & everyone was so, so helpful. 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.

Penthouse Treat
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

Birthday Memories
I went to the Merlewood caravan site as a child and I wanted to re-visit because I have fond memories. I saw the Cartford Inn in the Lancashire Life magazine and decided to give it a go. I wasn't disappointed. The rooms were unique and stylish and the food was lovely. We all enjoyed our stay and we will definitely come again.

Birthday Treat For The Mrs
We have enjoyed the food at the Cartford Inn before and noticed that they had rooms. As it was my wife's birthday I decided to surprise her with an overnight stay.

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.

Overnight Stay And Dinner
My partner and I stayed overnight on the 26 April and were impressed by the room comfort and the standard of dinner. The staff were incredibly helpful and very friendly throughout the whole process.

Just one minor quibble in what was a really lovely stay - there were no glasses in the room for water, which we only noticed as we went back to the room late at night.
