Carpeted, family-friendly chain pub with outdoor seating, TV screens and eclectic all-day food menu.
The name of this Wetherspoon freehouse recalls the time when Lytham depended on fishing and boat building. It also preserves the memory of an earlier Trawl Boat Inn, which flourished at Heyhouses until the 1880s.
The safety of fishermen was largely in their own hands. ‘Charlie’s Mast’, originally a cart shaft with a light on top, and later transformed into a flagpole, was set up by Charlie Townsend in the early 1800s as a guide to mariners.
Later, a stone lighthouse was built on Lytham beach, but collapsed in a storm in 1863. A wooden successor stood until 1901 on a West End sand dune, a site now on Lightburne Avenue, which was named after it.
The fishermen also served as lifeboat men. The Lifeboat Monument commemorates the crews of the St Anne's and Southport lifeboats who were drowned saving the sailors on board the German barque Mexico in 1886. The Lytham crew returned safely.
