Joycelyn Neve founded her Seafood Pub Company on the back of her family's long-standing maritime associations. One of her several pubs, this 250-year-old inn, with open fires, low-beamed ceilings and oak-planked floors, combines its traditional role with that of specialist fish, seafood and steak restaurant. Top quality produce arrives daily from the family business in Fleetwood, to emerge from the kitchen perhaps as pickled cockles with spiced vinegar as a snack; salt and pepper squid; and Goan king prawn and chicken curry. From the Robata grill you could choose 28-day dry-aged, grass-fed Lancashire beef steak with proper chips; or a peppered tuna steak.
