Visited with my mum on way to Smithills Hall. Had seen the reviews on line and they were a bit mixed. Arrived at 12:30 on Sunday afternoon, parked easily. The pub has been done up very nicely in a smart, modern style. We were greeted by a pleasant waitress who explained it was table service and we chose a table.... More

Food in here especially the Sunday lunch is fabulous. I have never had any cause to complain about the food. The atmosphere is a little pretentious and when busy it loses it's charm as "Boltons Elite" showcase their Barbie girlfriends, but this is the clientele and nothing the pub can do. Some silly rules on parking, they basically close the... More

Also known as Fanny's I took a girlfriend for lunch who has a discerning palette and a bit of a "foodie". I needn't have worried! There is a vast choice and also daily blackboard specials so the hardest part is deciding which of the mouth watering dishes to opt for. I had the Lancashire Platter and my friend had the... More

Extensive menu. The mains were not bad but deserts much better. Interior was good however a little short staffed, seemed to be lacking a bit of training as there was a serious lack of knowledge regarding the menu

This place is very impressive to look at but our dining experience was poor. Our pre-ordered food order had two orders incorrect leaving 2 out of 13 diners left waiting. Service was poor, at least 5 different people waited on our table, small requests weren't fulfilled when asked, it was a very long time before we were asked if we... More

First visit to this popular pub in a very nice residential area of the town. Car park extremely busy and lots of spaces seemed to be reserved with poles, almost impossible to park even at 7 pm. Food tasty and well presented and surroundings lovely albeit service a little slow and having to ask three times for a drink that... More

Love the food at fannies. Never had a bad meal and always excellent service. Sadly can't be said for my last visit Saturday 23/8/2014. Food was delicious as always but the staff and especially the floor manager were useless and rude. We had such a long wait for food and when we queried with the manager he rather snottily told...
