High Quality Dining

We had a meal at the restaurant on 11 April - my wife had mussels followed by sea bass, I had king prawns follows by duck. The quality of the meal was excellent.

A little gem tucked away near Blackpool North train station. Excellent a la carte dining, great menu choice and good, unhurried service. Perfect for a special occasion or just a lovely relaxed meal.

We are here on a Saturday evening and as always loved it. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and polite. It was busy with a good atmosphere. We had pate and chicken livers to start, followed by lamp rump and duck a l'orange. Would highly recommend 😃
