Really enjoyed a family Sunday lunch at Smiths recently and have to recommend it! The food was great and enough choice for everybody of all ages. All the food was very well presented and tasty and the relaxed atmosphere made for a very pleasant dining experience. Sadly I didn't take enough 'foody' photos but I did capture the famous Eccles...

I love dining at Smiths, the food and service is amazing and is great value. I like how the menus changed frequently too. We usually eat here on special occasions as a treat. I recommend the eccles cake with ice cream it's delicious. I love how they serve bread and butter before a meal too.

Lovely little place in Eccles, great home cooked food and pleasant service. Good value for money, not too far out of Manchester and parking right next door at the rail station.

We took my mother and father to Smiths on 26th July to celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary. Eight of us tucked into a range of starters from soup to scallops, all of which where well received with no complaints. There was a good selection of mains which you could choose from the set menu or the specials board. The steak... More

I have been visiting smiths ever since I worked in the area in 2003. I have never had a bad meal and have always found the most difficult part is choosing just one thing off the mouthwatering menu knowing that everything is lovely! Today I took my 10 month old for the first time for lunch with my husband. As... More

We have not been to Smiths for quite a while, and we forgot what a fantastic place it is. Me and my husband went after work on Saturday 19th July as I didn't fancy cooking. We both couldn't decide what to have the choice was amazing (starters and mains) I went for the veggie option, I'm not veggie but the... More

We had a fabulous meal early as our final night back home in the UK. The smoked haddock salad was beautiful! As always the service was attentive without being overbearing. Loving the outdoor area that has just opened, hope it gets plenty of use during the summer months!
