We recently took friends for lunch here while on holiday in the area, having discovered the hotel while walking around Grange. The menu choices were good and very reasonably priced - and as it was November there was a free assiette of desserts included for free. We relaxed before and after our meal in the lounge overlooking Morcambe Bay on... More

Arrived on Saturday. Hotel was full. Was offered a cup of tea in the lounge on arrival. Room was great. Had fantastic balcony with views of Morecambe Bay. The food was tasty and interesting. Particularly enjoyed the Rib eye with twice cooked chips

We stayed here for three nights after being let down by another hotel in the area. Without a reservation we did not know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel caters mainly for older people, many of whom seem to return at least once, if not twice a year - in our early 60's we were some... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Clare House. We waited in the wonderfully twee but comfortable lounge area where we gave our orders. We enjoyed a drink before we were invited through to our table. The portion sizes were just right with tasty, fresh ingredients and helpful but not intrusive service. Would definitely go back again for another celebration.

I booked this as a present for my Sister for her 50th as a bit of a reminiscent trip for us both, back to our childhood. We couldn't of had a better view, service or food. I would definitely go back and Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good things in life!
