The food was excellent.

Had a very good experience with the staff and they were very approachable. The place is unique and somewhat rustic. They serve buffalo steaks and it was out of this world. Very good.

First went there about 5 years ago, the food was dreadful along with the service, but the staff were pleasant enough. Recently decided to give it another chance as I was informed it had changed hands. Sad to say it had not improved at all. To top all this the pricing is way over the top for what you get.... More

Next to Premier Inn, ideal location for the Trafford Centre to either stay and shop or afterwards, food was ok service was ok, lacking some atmosphere, it was either the cricket on the telly or music that was quiet so not able to hear. Food was fine lunch menu was good.

Me and my girlfriend stopped here for a bite to eat last night. Staff are friendly / welcoming and cannot do enough for you. Food is really good and reasonably priced. Ample parking if driving.

Stayed next door at the Premier Inn. Decided we would like breakfast but not here. Cannot do a table for 5. We can split you up into two tables. Why can't we put an extra chair on the table for 4? Not allowed. How ridiculous I say. Grumpy people at the end of the day. Shame it ruined a nice... More

Sun was nice so we decided to leave our packed lunch and go eat out for lunch. Ordered 2 of the double stacked steak burgers, food was great. No worries about being late back to work as from ordering to our food coming was only 10 minutes, good location and good staff! Will definitely revisit when we're out for lunch... More

Welcomed efficiently by John and escorted to our table. Our drinks order was taken and delivered promptly. In the main the food was excellent from the evening special menu. The chips could have been better, however the desserts Caramel apple pie and sticky toffee pudding had both been slightly overheated in the microwave.
