Just back from meal at bell and bottle in Kirkham. 5 of us and it was the best we have had out for a long time. Very good value for money and lovely food. Would recommend and definitely go back.
Excellent service with good food have taken many people there and on the 30th October I will be taking a coach full of people because of the excellence and quality and value. ARTHUR

The Bell and Bottle was once a family orientated, friendly welcoming pub/restaurant.
Now it has become one of the country’s rapidly increasing 2 for 1chains, spewing out luke warm MICROWAVED food served by helpless staff. Upon ordering you have to endure a 45 minute wait listening to crap music with zero atmosphere, just hope you’re in good company or else this wait can become very boring indeed. Once the food has arrived it is usually missing something from the menu like dips, the steaks will be overdone no matter how you ordered it, the potatoes won’t be what you ordered and the salad will be limp. The atmosphere is so dire you almost feel it a crime to laugh, the drinks are far too expensive, the food is rubbish, and there are none of your usual pub qualities like pool table, dart board, sport television, juke box and the most obvious factor: a severe lack of people enjoying themselves.
Money Spending Customer
Typical of the way these big chains are taking over the great British pub. The same thing is happening to cafes with brands like Costa Coffee and Cafe Nero wiping the floor with the small businessman. The food here is not very good, they are now a two-for-one on the food so while you are saving money on your meal they are stinging you with the price of the ale. Do not order a short drink and unless you have your cheque book do not order a double! It is nearly three quid for a pint aswell. And the bastards got rid of the pool table too. I aint happy.
The Bell and Bottle is now a Marstons 'Two for One' restaurant / pub and in January 2008 underwent a total refurbishment. It now has a large car park, and has nice modern decor. There are a choice of tables, sofas and outside seating. Sadly the meals are not at all great - the Sunday Roasts are watery and lack taste, and the various chicken dishes are bland, although I do recommend the Swordfish meal. If you want a better tasting meal and are prepared to pay a higher price, Salvatore's Italian is about 50 metres further up the road (the old Highgate Inn) and offers better value for true foodies!
