I had the fried whitebait and followed by the salmon and haddock fishcake both were... read more

Very nice food and very convenient location for a quick lunch or early dinner. The starter, steak and salad was quite nice and the service was amazing. The hostess is so attentive,friendly and cheerful, just made my day brighter! Thanks for that and cheers!

A late choice backfired after browsing on the wealth of choice on the on-line menu we ventured in. Limited menu awaited as the more choice version is only available at the trafford centre. My wifes club sandwich was bland buy my sons steak was decent to be fair. I opted out and had 2 sides ,the final dagger was the... More

We ate here in a Saturday. It was quietish (normally busy in the week). The staff are very very welcoming & efficient - 10/10 to them. The food was great too - kids burger, steak sandwich (great sauce), nice soup and lovely dry fries (potato & sweet potato). A notch above usual lunch fare. We might be harsh - it... More
