When we last visited the wonderful Meadow Falls campsite near Ingleton the neighbouring pub was shut. That was when the equally wonderful campsite owner Dave offered to drive us to another nearby pub instead.
This time though the pub by the campsite, the Marton Arms was open.
The first impressions were positive, there were some interesting beers available, including some from local breweries.
I had a dark beer and Liam ordered one randomly like normal.
There weren’t many tables free, so we decided to seat ourselves and I was hopeful that there would be fish and chips on the menu. I haven’t had enough of those this week and I was delighted to see that they were on the menu here 🙂
Liam went for pie and I was more than delighted with the fish and chips. Big chunks of fish like that can often be watery and bland inside, but this had a pleasant taste and was cooked perfectly. The batter had lots of flavour, the tartare sauce seemed homemade and the portion size was generous. Perfectly decent main course meals, with the service being warm and friendly, although sometimes just a little slow.
I’m not normally one for desserts, but I thought that the Eton berry mess sounded tempting, and Liam went for his usual favourite of sticky toffee pudding.
The mist had started to come down when we left the pub, making it looking rather atmospheric. Another day of walking done and then back to the campsite, but no blasted tent to deal with this time…..
