About the Kenlis Arms Hotel, Garstang


Expect home-cooked pub food at this former Victorian hunting lodge near Garstang.

It’s ironic that this former hunting lodge (built 1856) in Barnacre, near Garstang, can be both way off the beaten track and sandwiched between two of the country’s major transport arteries (the M6 and the main West Coast rail line). It’s also at Bridge 54 of the Lancaster Canal if you fancy a stroll.

When you do manage to find the Kenlis Arms, you can expect home-cooked pub food, a roaring log fire in winter, a kids’ outside play area and a covered and raised patio where you can eat and drink al fresco. Signature dishes include Lancashire stuffed garlic mushrooms, steak & kidney pie and Alice’s famous home-made apple pie. The Kenlis Arms has a large function room and games room as well as four ensuite bedrooms.

Regular music nights too on the last Wednesday of the month.

All this, plus the attraction of maybe staying for that long promised break in one of The Kenlis Arms’ attractive and spacious en-suite guest bedrooms. 4 Bedrooms with en-suite, (please note one of our rooms has a Bath with a Shower over the bath) T.
