I had waxed lyrical to my friend about this place and always visit both here and Lytham whenever I can. I made a special journey to go here and spent that journey extolling the virtues of it. The place has started to look a bit run down. The table was covered in salt and the waitress said oh it must... More

I am a great supporter of Booths. I support the supermarket every time I shop and enjoy the experience, quality and wonderful staff. This restaurant was a model of excellence some years ago and we would proudly bring visitors from all over the UK and overseas. This restaurant needs an efficient manager please! To be greeted after a wait at... More

Oh dear what has happened to Artisan, used to be one of my favourite places - not any more. We wanted to order the Northern Rarebit but they had run out of bread - hello you are part of a supermarket!! Opted for a ham and mustard sandwich (yes they had the bread for this, go figure) both arrived, my... More

I stopped going to this place 7 years ago due to the poor service. I had to park nearby today so decided to give it a try. The three of us were shown to a table and left there. With four staff in the "restaurant" and only six tables occupied they should have been able to cope- but they were... More

Having eaten here many times and found it ok - I say ok, that's what it is. Nice choice and tasty food if not a bit pricey. However I was really disappointed today to go in, admittedly when it was quite busy (aka lunchtime) but then a large establishment such as this should be able to cope with a Wednesday... More

I have shopped regularly in Booths for over ten years and have always been happy with the quality and the service in the supermarket. Wish I could say the same for the cafe when I called for coffee with friends on Monday 19th January the service was atrocious, the staff rude and unhelpful and they refused to accept my Booths...

Whilst the food is ok the service is abdominal. Usually on arrival there is no one to greet you, when someone eventually turns up, there is no greeting or smile, they are definitely not pleased to see you. Unfortunately it doesn't get any better, I have waited 20 mins for my order to be taken, unless I've gone next door... More
