Ordered Chicken New Yorker (hunters chicken) as I do when I go to any of these pubs. Came with a cheese single on top, not a slice of cheddar cheese, a full on orange cheese single the cheap stuff you buy from asda when you're having a massive BBQ. Just don't understand how a pub can run out of cheese.... More

We recently took my family here for my birthday and to allow the little ones to play for a bit and despite the play area being a tad bit manic the overall experience was great. The only down side was the restaurant was a tad bit cold, that's why it's not a 5. We ordered the XXL burger which I'd... More

I blame myself really for going back here after I promised myself I was never going back here ever again, but we were invited to celebrate a birthday. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful, but I had to clean a high chair myself for my son. Only half our meals came out. They were very apologetic, but our meals... More

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.
