I like this restaurant very much. The menu includes many fish dishes and portions are quite large. Staff are welcoming and the restaurant is always busy. There are various offers regarding staying overnight with inclusive meals though I've not experienced one of these yet.

Went here on valentines for their 3 course set menu. Having never been here before, we were a little unsure of the old fashioned decor and the fact there was food under the table we sat at in the bar, however, as soon as we were taken through to our table and the food arrived we stopped worrying!

We visit the Calfs head for a end of season group party and have never had a bad meal. The carvery is good value for money with large helpings and a choices of various meats and vegetables. There is also a wide variety of starter and sweets. Service has always been very organised.

Only the second time I've visited the Calf's Head but it didn't disappoint. Even without a reservation we were warmly welcomed and seated within a few minutes. The food was excellent, staff were knowledgeable and able to advise on all the dishes on offer. While we didn't have any problems getting seated on a Wednesday evening, I would advise anybody...

Regularly visit the Calfs Head and always enjoy it. It's my father's favorite place for food - good British fayre, and fast service, the surroundings are nice, great view of Pendle hilll from the beer garden. The braised steak in pepper sauce is my favorite.

The staff were very attentive and service good. The portions are big and they have a huge selection of puddings - the most I've ever seen.

Ok so this is the first review on my new account and wish i could of started positively but unfortunately this is not the case.
