    All had prawn cocktail starter. Was really lovely main meals were steaks cooked as requested and chicken all lovely presented we like fish. And it would be good if you had more fish dishes available like salmon Dover sole or any grilled or poached fish as cannot eat battered fish but everything else was lovely thankyou

    The bar staff and young man Oliver who looked after us were excellent. Oliver was a real credit to the place. His attention to ensuring we had a lovely time was ideal.
    Shame however about the quality of the food presented from the kitchen with the exception of the scampi was poor. Mix grills , all meat was either tough or well over cooked . Children s meals looked liked they had been thrown on the plate and they even left the CHIPS . { what does that tell you , adults were the same }. Desserts well that chef needs to go back to school as he / she tried to serve the children BLACK BANANAS and I mean BLACK for the desserts , the exchange was no better , Ice Cream Sundee , was two scoops of ice cream and teddy bear wafer, There were three other desserts that were either over cooked in the re heating process with very little custard or poor in presentation. Missed a mention on the two starters but you have the idea by now, asked for a finger bowl and got COLD water !! .
    Conclusion ;- would visit again having the Scampi and might try one of the spit roasted chickens

    We dine here once a month and the food and service is usually very good. Yesterday with it being bank holiday the place was very, very busy so we had to wait quite a long time to be served. Meals were very good.

    Lovely decor, lovely looking restaurant, lovely setting with views across the countryside from the back of the restaurant. Great choice of food on the menu and tasty desserts. However....the service was a real let down. There was only one lady, Jackie, run off her feet serving the entire restaurant, a couple of lads were helping to bring the food out but other than that she was totally on her own (and still had a smile on her face the whole time), so we waited 1 1/4 hours for our main course to arrive. So all in all, lovely food, poor service, and it seems this is a recurring problem looking at other reviews.

    We really like the makeover the Hoghton Arms has received, the meal was very good, service excellent - in fact nothing to complain about at all.
    We went with friends and they were also surprised and enjoyed.

    Food was good but we were left fora considerable time between courses which would have been understandable if they were busy. We were also seated next to the play area even though we were not dining with children

  • (**** by from Brierfield

    Our 3rd and worst visit here. Service so slow - we had to ask for someone to take our orders both for our main meals and later for desserts. No one seemed to want to serve us. The food itself was very nice however. But there was a definite lack of staff making this double birthday celebration a frustrated event to say the least. We still tipped 10% but will think twice before visiting again.
