The Martin Inn

THE Martin Inn is now a real family pub, owned by a father and daughter from Southport. The pub will soon boast, not only a restaurant and hotel rooms, but also an area for helicopters to land! It has a noted historical background and despite its modernisation, the pub has not lost any of its rural character. The opening night was on Saturday 8 December 2007 and we were invited to attend. On the night, the pub played host to locals and people from as far away as Preston and Liverpool. They joined up with friends and family of the new owners for what was a glowing start for the business. With the cold strong wind blowing outside, the inside was made warm and cosy by live fires. This feeling was enhanced by a fantastic band called "The Marmosets" who played live to the packed out house. One of the owners, Joanne, told us:- "It was a fantastic start. Despite the fact we are looking at allowing hotel guests to fly in, we will be aiming to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for both locals and visitors alike. This is a country pub, but also a hotel, so we are planning to have live music most weekends and lots of entertainment throughout the week. This will be suitable for locals and visitors alike. As we are so near to Capital Of Culture and the Southport Open Golf, we are now concentrating our efforts on getting the hotel ready, now that the pub section is open. We have a lot of work ahead, but we are well on track to being ready for the tourist season in 2008."
