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

We took our 2 nephews to the play area and we were told we could order our food to arrive after their time was up. (You pay for an hour of playing and we ordered just after we got there.) The cashier gave us our table number and told us we just go to the restaurant next door when the... More

For my 40th birthday celebrations I booked a section of the bar on a Saturday night for a gathering of family and friends. About 60-70 guests. Not your standard private room kind of party, but so much better. The booking, set-up on the night, buffet & service were all fantastic. All my high maintenance requests were catered for in a...

We even had what i presumed to be the manager/landlord personally say good bye and hold the door. After this experience we have been back again and... More

I visited the Wacky Warehouse with my children at a childrens party and decided to try the pub. The pub was busy, and the manager found us a table and was very accommodating. The staff were friendly and good with our two young children. The meal I had was good value for money, and our childrens meals were also good,... More

For me, I don't always expect too much when eating in pubs. However, I must say that this place has certainly won me over. I have eaten here around 3 times and I must say that I have enjoyed it thoroughly each time. The prices are amazing for the food you get and I definitely recommend coming here if you're... More

Well, really amazed at how good this experience was. We visited family over in Bolton as it was our little boys birthday and thought this would be a good place as there is a wacky warehouse. We started off in the warehouse to let my little man run himself out for a little bit. Upon arrival we were greeted very... More
