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.

Welcomed by John in a very pleasant manner and quickly escorted to a table for 2. Quick order for drinks and special evening menu supplied on request (should have been on table). Once order placed it took a reasonable time to arrive. Gammon was fatty & gristly but tasty and tender in the main. Chips were in the main only... More

The food is reasonable in quality and price with some nice dishes. It can be a bit fussy with presentation though. Separate bowls full of curry and rice are unnecessary when one larger bowl or a plate would work better.

We stayed here Friday 15/5/15, our room was clean and airy, not overbearingly hot like some I've stayed in, staff were very helpful, we went to the Trafford centre for some dinner and shopping, my partner unknowingly lost some cards and his driving license, somebody knocked on our door to tell us where they were and we could collect them...
