I visited on the 31st August - A busy Sunday afternoon. I walked into a busy restaurant, and expected to wait an eternity for a table - This wasn't the case. I was greated within 2 minutes of arrival by a friendly member of the managment team, who swiftly sweated us at a clean table. He then offered us drinks,... More

Superb tasty food, fantastic attentive and friendly staff,big portions, loads of choice and great value. We live in Leigh and We will be back its worth the drive. Only slight comment is that its probably due for a bit of a refurb but having said that We were very impressed and cant wait to go again

We have been several times to this pub. It serves pub grub and you expect to get what you pay for. The prices had increased significantly from our last visit, but sadly the food was still microwaved or fried chips. We both had the chicken tikka meal and a lager shandy. The cost was just a few pence over £20.00.... More

We often come in for dinner with our little one after visiting the Wacky and can't fault the service, price or the quality of the food. Never had any complaints and always really enjoyed our meals.

We took our friend from London for lunch at the Red Lion. My husband asked for half rice half chips with his meal. NO said the bored looking boy on the til. I asked for chips so we could share. I got rice, a cold vegetarian wrap and horrid veg. My husband didn't eat his meal either. Our friend was... More

On arrival we weren't welcomed we just found a table, this was sticky and not clean atal. Many tables had not been cleared so we ended up having to sit in the walkway to and from the kitchen. I had a vegetarian burrito as I had had this before at another pub from this chain and this was cold and... More

Visited on Sunday, 6th July around 1.30 p.m. and this was our first visit as we don't live in Bolton. We like the Fayre and Square dining experience and this didn't fail to meet all our expectations. The staff were very attentive and friendly and went out of their way to give us brilliant service. The menu is typical pub... More

We brought our daughter here for her 6th birthday at her request. Upon arriving we asked in the restaurant if they would attach a couple of balloons we brought with us to a chair for our daughter while we went into the play area,without hesitation they agreed to. Our daughter as always loved running around for an hour in the... More
