Ross's Arms, Astley

Forget it. This pub has now been run down to a terrible state. Food is not being served and the heating isn't switched on and it's filthy. They close early due to lack of support. They don't open many nights and they are even closed on a Sunday afternoon. They even had the nerve to increase what is already an over priced pint from 2.60 - 2.70 even though they must be trying to attract customers.

The Jolly Crofters, Horwich

I have just had the misfortune to visit the Jolly Crofters at Horwich. It's a pub I have been to in the past and never had a bad meal. How things have changed.

We arrived at 1.50pm today (10/10) and ordered 2 starters at 13.56pm, according to the slip. The starter arrived at 2.25pm and was of very poor quality and small portions. This wasn't loooking good.

At 2.51pm the waitress arrived at our table, not with any food, but an apology, the cheese & onion pie I ordered as one main course nearly an hour ago had now sold out!

She told me she had only started her shift at 2pm so didn't really know what was going on, however the more mature lady who took the order stayed well away.

I decided enough was enough was enough and left the restaurant paying for the drinks I had purchased.

This was not the only problem, I witnessed three other people complaining about the food and service. One couple watched a table of three arrive, get fed and leave before they had even received their food.

This used to be a pub reknowned for good food and service. What a shame it's ended up like this.

Stay well away.

The Strawbury Duck, Entwistle

Called over the weekend, very nicely altered and improved, pleasant staff and good beer (Timothy Taylor's Landlord). Didn't try the food but after checking the menu, expect to pay over 11 for pie and chips. I suppose someone has to pay for the improvements!!
