We went for lunch, following a friend's recommendation, on Saturday and although the food was pretty good I was disappointed at how dry the salt and pepper chicken burger special was. My companion's premier burger was very good and the service was attentive but not over-bearing but the wine we had was a little too warm. It is frustrating that... More

We arrived and had a drink in the bar and had... More

They seriously need to reconsider that approach. The bottled beer they did have, Black Sheep was acceptable but as with all... More

What can I say about the food??? The food was beautifully presented and was AMAZING. It was so fresh and tasty. I have to say that this was probably one... More

My wife and I had a meal here a couple of Friday's ago, we had a great time. We booked an early evening meal as we made our way to the Manchester Arena for a show. I booked on line the night before - no problem. We were greeted upon arrival and decided to have a drink in the bar... More
