I have great memories of visiting this restaurant. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere, although loud at times with birthday celebrations, always special. I praise all the staff as they make this restaurant stand out. The food is excellent and all my party was very impressed with everything. We will be back soon.

I visited earlier today as part of a christening party. Having never visited before I was amazed at the size of the restaurant in comparison to the smaller looking frontage. Beautiful both inside and out, with friendly staff and delicious food. The drinks did seem a little expensive, however I am not from the Formby area so can't really comment... More

I have eaten in this restaurant many times over the past few years when we visit family in Formby. The experience has always been excellent. The food is wonderful with a great choice. We tend to choose a mixture of main dishes because there are teenagers wanting pizzas but also we need vegetarian options as well as fish/ meat dishes.... More

Attending the early bird session the restaurant was busy with people happily eating. Our young daughter was sat with another 3 year old and another younger friend of... More

I went to this restaurant as part of an organised event where we tasted lots of dishes. The food and staff were so nice that I booked to go there for a meal with my friend the following weekend. I have to say it was all really wonderful. The staff even changed a dish from a cream sauce to a... More

Went for a function. Because of the numbers involved, we were upstairs and there was a large function going on downstairs at the same time. Didn’t know until afterwards that there was apparently a mixup of some kind and the group below were delayed in their arrivals and so both groups (we’re talking 100+ people) needed serving their 3-course meals...
