This restaurant really exceeded all my expectations! I was recommended it by a friend on my trip to Manchester, and I must say, it's probably one of my favourite places to eat! The food was phenomenal and the service was really impressive. I will definitely be coming here again! It's a real shame it's far away from where I live... More

Went to this restaurant for a meal with a friend for a birthday treat. We opted for the early bird menu. At £13.99 for 3 courses we thought it was very reasonable , but once the food arrived we understood why! It was very apparent that the food on the early bird menu was of a different standard to that... More

The food was stunning, we had... More

Went for a meal on Friday evening with 6 friends. The meal was outstanding, something you would expect in the centre of Manchester not Heywood. The service was also impeccable and I will certainly be going back.
