Garstang has boasted a number of pubs over the years, probably due to the town being located on the main north to south road through England.

Anthony Hewitson in his book ‘Northwards’ published in 1900 says that:

About 80 years ago there were actually 13 public houses in Garstang”

So, around 1820 these pubs were:

The King’s Arms

The Royal Oak

The Eagle and Child

The Golden Ball

The Wheatsheaf

The Pack Horse

The Horns Inn

The Brown Cow

The Blue Anchor

The Red Lion

The Holy Lamb

The Swan

The Shovel and Broom
