Thought the menu was very limited, no spicy food available. It was as if the restaurant was trying to be too many things to all people but the real problem was the noise. The restaurant is brick wall and wooden floor with no carpets or curtains to absorb sound so our party of six had to shout to maintain any... More

I had previously been to fat Olive Ormskirk and wasn't too impressed, but I came here with a friend last week and was much more impressed. Great value for money, sizeable portions and great tasting food, would highly recommend to everyone

Fat Olive is by far the best place to eat on Wigan. Great atmosphere, staff are friendly and the decor is lovely. The food is always delicious and well presented. The prices are fantastic especially the two courses for £14 on a Friday night. Always brilliant!

Came here last month for a works meal. Could not fault the food, it was delicious and everything tastes homemade and freshly made to order. However, lovely as our meal was, I thought it was severely overpriced. A risotto was priced at around £11 and two glasses of wine left me with a total bill of around £23... A little... More

Not overly busy, yet a lengthy wait for a table if you walk in. Beer was not the best, barrel was changed but to no avail... Duck was over cooked, and very hard to cut, appropriate knife not provided... Delay on meals after starters, Male staff looked smart, Female staff very unkempt and seemed fed up in general. shame.
