The staff are knowledgeable and offer good unobtrusive service. The food is excellent. Order from the board and don't bother with the standard menu. Also handy to do your food shop on the way out. Good butcher and deli.

They have such a great choice for non-meat eaters and carnivores alike. Attached to a fabulous deli and fully accessible for wheelchair users, I love going for Sunday lunch or brunch. Staff are really friendly and helpful and nobody ever seems to want to rush you through your meal.

We arrived here on a Sunday lunchtime without a booking. The place was heaving, but staff found us a table outside. The food was really good, they have some nice bottle beers from local breweries (and others), nice wine, a great menu, and the food is served quickly and with a smile. I had Lebanese salad, which was really good,... More

We had a lovely family Sunday lunch - not always easy with two toddlers. The blackboard was so full of lovely sounding meals that it was very difficult to choose - whatever you chose meant you were missing out on something else. The Spanish Platter was good, as were the dipping oil and the hummus. The mains were wonderful. Braised... More

Visited as we were interested in the deli but ended up having a snack too. To be honest, the deli isn't anything special compared to other farm shops throughout the North West, which is a shame. We were sort of cajoled in to the café by the manager/head waiter so we thought we may as well give it a try.... More

Had a lovely evening celebrating two birthdays. Service was exceptional and menu was different from the norm but excellent. Tom looked after U.S. extremely well and his recommendations were spot on. Debbie was also attentive and sociable. Would certainly visit again. Angela, Dave, Carroll & Paul

This was an amazing experience. First time visit with family including elderly mother. Left side of the building the restaurant and right hand side a well stocked, attractive deli. Food was inventive, good choice, fresh and creative. Really tasty vegetarian options and choice to pick your own wine from the deli if the wine list not to your taste. As... More
