This is a huge place and should be full every night. It is a few years since I last went and was extremely disappointed during my last visit to find nothing has changed. I honestly am lost for words to describe the quality of food. I have never tasted anything so bland and boring in my life... Ridiculously hot and... More

For a pub/restaurant that prides itself on being an INDEPENDENT where is the selection of ales. I was told the only ale was John Smiths so I said I would settle for a Guinness. However, they do not sell it so I settled for a Stella a mile away from where I started. We used to call here a few... More

We were driving back from Hull over Woodhead pass and dropped into here before we got to Manchester. Food and service were very good and excellent value for money. Great find and definitely recommended

When it arrived it... More

I've passed this pub on a number of occasions and never gone in, so decided to give it a go one random Thursday. We arrived about 6:45, it was pretty quiet, it got busier after 7pm. The menu has an Amercian theme, which I wasn't really expecting. We chose from the 2 courses for £9.95 menu. Between us we had... More
