Lovely friendly staff, great atmosphere (especially during Pride) and super cocktails. A must for anyone visiting Canal Street.

Thank you for the lovely words. We've worked hard to be here for 13 years, and always appreciate feedback. Don't forget it's Happy Hour every day 4-7pm, so those cocktails are even more 'reasonable'! Glad you enjoyed, see you soon. More

Had a fab meal here just a shame it took over 45 minutes for the main course to be served due to our waiter forgetting to put the order in.However we got our bottle of wine free from the manager as an apology still shouldn't of happened though.

Please accept our apologies again. We rarely make these mistakes, so it's very unfortunate it happened to you. We did think the bottle of wine was a suitable gesture, to ease the waiting time? Glad to hear you enjoyed the food however. Thanks for the positive feedback. Hopefully next time, we will get it right on all counts. More

Visited today with my son for a belated birthday treat. The staff were busy getting ready for the Pride event but still found time to be attentive and courteous as is the norm here. I had the Lancashire cheese pie which was really tasty and my son had a burger which was huge! We will of course be back again... More

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Taurus was still open when I walked through canal street yesterday, and was once again left full and satisfied after an incredibly tasty nosh session. I had the daily soup special with oriental style salmon as a main. The soup was categorically the best Tomato soup I've had. Apparently they make all soups... More

Visited on a hot summer evening having booked a table after reading previous reviews. We were given a table near one of several large windows which were completely open. This allowed a cool breeze into the room and a view of the scores of customers sitting outside at tables on Canal Street. The staff were friendly and helpful (though I... More

So glad to hear you had a lovely time, and especially that you got a window seat! Those seats are like gold dust sometimes! Hopefully next time we will leave you with enough room for our homemade desserts! Apologies about your beer, but glad it wasn't an issue. A beer on us next time I think! Thanks for the taking...

When you 1st walk in the staff are friendly but the decor is very dark and not very colourful. We booked a table and was given 1 near the big windows. We ordered 2 fish & chips, oriental salmon and a Cajun chicken burger. What we received was unbelievable, you would have thought we was in a very posh restaurant... More

I could never say a bad word about this place. Food is always excellent and the drinks are always great. They also have great cocktails. I would always recommend this place as one of the most quality places on canal St.
