At last!

Can't believe I haven't been before here after knowing about this place for 15 years. I can cook myself, so being fed up of poor meals out (read my reviews) we normally do it ourselves. Our meal was simply stunning!!

Went for Sunday lunch on a scouting mission for 70th birthday for my family of 10. Although I have been many times this time I was disappointed, the food was only average, the place looks tired and in need of a deep clean and decorating, we were plagued with flies both in the lounge and in the restaurant. Overall not... More

The food here is to die for. Absolutely amazing chef who produces the most tender of meats. Although the menu is slightly pricey it's great to have somewhere quaint like this is Bolton where there aren't too many other diners, the staff are interested in your custom and the owner obviously takes pride in the service his team provide.. as...
