We are here on a Saturday night and enjoyed every mouthful as always. We had chicken livers and deep fried Camembert to start followed by fillet steak and lamb rump. Every mouthful was delicious and the portions were large as usual! Couldn't ask for nicer home cooked food and excellent service. Great food and great staff would highly recommend!

We had been to AJ's once previously and had a fantastic meal and experience. The staff are friendly and attentive. On this occasion the food was ok but not outstanding. However, there was a very reasonable reduction for my complaint about the Parma ham that wrapped a very nice monkfish. So well done AJ's for listening. My suggestion is for... More

Pleasant experience from start to finish. dips & a pitta for a starter: hot cheese dip was particularly memorable! Da Boss had duck, which was properly cooked (Pink), & I ate a decent pork chop. Fair-priced bottle of wine washed it all down... No room for pud, so can't comment I'm afraid. Intimate surroundings & not too busy, which was... More

Have been to AJ's three times now, all on a groupon or dealmonster voucher, the first visit being really good. The second a disappointment, food was bland (Fish Pie and Bass) although the day was saved by a decent chicken soup starter. Decided to give it a third try and stick to the red meat as this seemed their forte.... More

After a busy day we popped in for a quick meal and loved it. The sauce with the monkfish is amazing. Highly recommend coming here.

We live in Altrincham and were visiting Blackpool to see Peter Kay at the Opera House. My wife booked it for the excellent location. We both had a fillet steak, cooked to perfection, then a delicious sticky toffee pudding to finish. Excellent value for money, if this restaurant was in Hale it would be up there with the best.
