I was very pleased to see the Scarisbrick Arms has re-opened. For over two years now it has been closed and looking very sorry for itself. Now it is open again and had a refurbishment. The bar and restaurant are now open. Work on the garden by the canal will be done in time for the summer season. It will eventually provide bed and breakfast.
I haven't had chance to go and see how the refurb has gone, if you do visit make sure you review the pub on towpathtreks Leeds & Liverpool Canal pub guide: http://www.towpathtreks.co.uk/LLC/canal_pub_guide.html
