Kenlis Arms Hotel
4 reviews of Kenlis Arms Hotel in English
called in whilst out shopping in the Garstang area last weekend.
Andrea suggested we try the “fish in a bucket” which was calamari, prawn, cod and scampi in breadcrumbs with chips – delicious!!! accompanied by a pint of Lancashire ale as well on a sunny afternoon, outside – in October!!
Will be back!
I first visited the Kenlis far more years ago than I care to remember now. Back then it had a bar billiards table and the whole concept of pub food, with the exception of a cellophane wrapped ham sandwich or a pickled egg, had yet to be invented, certainly around this area anyway :-) All these years on though the Kenlis is still very much the same as it was back then. The bar billiards table has long since gone, replaced by a pool table, and the pub now serves food, but it still retains a quirky uniqueness as a result of being privately owned and run. There is a pile of board games in the corner of one room and newspapers and magazines are available to browse, novelty teapots adorn the walls and you can buy chocolate from behind the bar or jelly beans and sweets from a vending machine. There is a children’s play area outside and it is also a hotel with a few rooms at reasonable rates. The food is inexpensive, we didn’t dine but the menu included standard pub fare; steak pie, roast dinners, burgers, steak etc. A couple of cask beers were on including one from the local Bowland Brewery which was very pleasant. It is a big imposing building seemingly in the middle of nowhere, in fact it was kind of well known for being difficult to find in the days before satellite navigation :-) It is also close to the canal and there is a visitor mooring for a couple of boats by the bridge ( Bridge 54) or alternatively it is possible to moor on the towpath although it can be a little overgrown at times.
Just checked in for a night. Lovely room. M6 visible in the distance but can't hear it - DG windows. No evening meals Mon or Tuesday. Beer excellent. Worth a stay if you're in the area.

This lovely pub, sat near the canal in Barnacre, Garstang has a lovely beer garden and great local ales.
the food I believe is all home prepared and home cooked on the premises and is served in plentiful quantities at a great price!
Pool table, darts and even board games will keep the family entertained - and I believe they even have entertainment on each month.
Worth a stop off if you`re in the area.
