It speaks volumes that having signed up to receive news letters and new menu notifications the first words my wife uttered when the latest news letter arrived in my in-box were "when are we going" followed by who shall we take with us?. So on the phone to book and off we went to meet family the following Saturday. I... More

Lovely service, lovely food, we got a £20 3-course meal and all were nice but the dessert (chocolate one with nuts and extra special ice cream) was just amazing. Would definitely recommend!

A great welcome was given to our little group when we entered the restaurant, ahh we are at Smiths again a good evening will now commence. Each month Smiths walls are decorated with art by local artists. This keeps their walls constantly changing and promotes local artists. I feel very bad as I cannot remember the names of either of...

Friendly atmosphere, cosy décor and fantastic food. I chose one of the specials, lamb shank with haggis mash and vegetables - came with 3 other types of potato as well as various greens. Kingstone pear cider accompanied the food well on a summer's evening, and regretfully I had no room for desert. Friendly and attentive waitress made the picture complete.... More

1st time we visited Smiths we got off to a bad start but the evening ended well. We said then that we would be back and last night Saturday 11th May we were.......Fabulous! Food, service, atmosphere just superb. Nice touch the possibility to mix-n-match between the set menu and the specials board. Whoever thought to sandwich a restaurant between a... More

Found the restaurant to be punching a little above its weight. The decor and furniture, I'm afraid, doesn't match its desired image. I was seated near the bar/serving area, opposite a door which was wedged open giving an unobstructed view of the disabled loo. I asked for the door to be closed, but before long it was back open again.... More

First time trip to Smiths in Eccles. Lovley atmosphere, very pleasant service by a young waitress, not long to wait between meals, good offer for the fixed price menu 19.95 for 3 courses, unusual but great range of special dishes including desserts such as waffleberry pudding, well presented dishes and good portion sizes for dishes. Will be going back again... More

I could not wait to get out! After a trip to India I wanted to reminisce by having the Goan curry, sadly this was a boil in the bag effort. My girlfriend had the steak which was medium rare and was still chewing it down church street. There was no interaction from staff, bad experience all round. Will not be... More

Very pleasant evening with friends with some eating from good value set menu some a la carte from day's board. Friendly service and reasonably priced array of drinks. My own reason for not giving 5 stars was over salty beef brisket (though not as bad as elsewhere). Delicious deserts.

Very nice Sunday lunch. It was very quiet (we were the only customers for most of our visit) and the service was good without being over attentive. Starters were scallops and prawns, and mains were beef brisket and sea bass. Everything was very nice - well presented, nicely cooked and very tasty. Good wine list and an overall very pleasant...
