Food usually good though service always poor

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times and I rather like the old place. The menu is varied with an excellent choice of specials. The food is usually pretty good and I've not had a bad experience so far. However, the service is always terrible, especially if the older guy with the glasses is... read more

Lovely location, but that's pretty much it. Rude staff and a mediocre food, not a place where you want to spend your hard earned cash.

I've recently moved to Didsbury- the estate agents I rent from is right next door to Saints and Scholars! I thought I'd give it a try the day I signed for my flat- and I loved it! The service was prompt and the selection on hand was great. I'm vegetarian and there were still an impressive amount of options for... More

We went for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The owner or whoever were running it was really quite rude. Could have been trying to come across as funny and being people's 'mate' but it just made for an uncomfortable experience. The breakfast itself was pretty poor, dry scrambled eggs, fried egg was overcooked as was the hash browns. You get... More

I always come here for breakfast, especially good when I am hungover. I don't think this is the type of place I would visit for lunch or evening meal, but I highly recommend the breakfast. My boyfriend wasn't keen on the herb sausages so early in the morning and feels they have no place on an english breakfast (better served... More

A pleasant enough local restaurant. Service was efficient on a quiet Monday evening. Some elements of our meal were very good (pork belly, duck, green beans); others average (fish, dauphinoise potatoes, other veg). Weirdly one main course plate was scalding hot, the other barely warm.

6 of us went in for a cup of tea or coffee and a couple of us also had soup as it sounded so good. Service was efficient and when the food arrived it was OK. 3 of us had ordered tea but only given one pot between us and a small milk jug. No problem getting hot water and... More

Visited with friends. The service was a bit hit and miss. There were 6 of us and we all arrived at slightly different times. Took quite a while to order but it was busy. The breakfast was ok but the quality of the food isn't amazing. Ingredients are probably bought from Aldi and you could get just as good results,... More

Visited here for lunch, staff were very friendly. Had the pulled pork bap with fries it was packed with meat and very tasty. Sat out in the sun which makes a pleasant change! Very nice lunch we will go again
