Amazing value for money. Any pasta or pizza £5. Staff lovely and so is the food. Didn't wait long and we weren't disappointed. Food was stunning fresh and portion size was great. Would recommend this restaurant ..

Reasonably priced, good menu, helpful smiley staff. Food well cooked and presented. My only gripe would be that my dining partner was presented with her main course about five minutes before mine appeared.

The restaurant was fairly busy but there was no intrusive noise. There is a great variety of menus….we chose from the “3 courses for £10” menu which we... More

Once underway Ian and Mike made sure the event went off without any problems, if fact they really helped make the evening a success. The food was excellent and I must offer my complements to the chef. Would I recommend,... More

Went here for a girly lunch out and had the 3 courses for £10 menu. Found the portions to be decent and the food to be good quality. Only slight let down was the black pudding which was a bit of a funny texture according to two of our group. Waiters were very friendly if a little slow at times,... More

Why oh why do meringues have to be shop bought. Christmas meal for 26 quid. The lamb shank was lovely but the mushrooms and dessert was a bit ...meh. Would go back but don't expect anything amazing. The midweek deals obviously are better value. I am yet to find anywhere decent in ormskirk. We are so far behind cities when... More

Last minute booking for midweek lunch. Arrived and received a warm welcome. Only several tables occupied which made atmosphere quiet but food and house wine was pleasant. Interested to see that evening events are held at weekend and would love to return, when it is full.
