Great food

Came here for Mother's Day. Service was fantastic and food was really good. Would come here again in a group of friends, not somewhere I would choose for a date night/quiet meal as it is quiet noisy.

We went to The Fat Olive restaurant in Wigan for my daughter's 40th birthday celebration. There were just under 30 of us ranging from children to seniors and I can honestly say the catering and the service was excellent. We all decided to have the set two or three course menu because we thought with it being a large party... More

Made a reservation about for 10 people for my daughters 18th Birthday more than 6 weeks in advance, only to receive a phone call 2 weeks later apologising saying they could no longer keep the reservation as they had had a offer for another function. (Obviously more money in them for it).

I always go here for dinner as it is close by and good for value. I have been on two occasions: Steak night Wednesday (All steaks half price) and Tuesday, both times the food was excellent, staff were polite and the value is very good!

Ok. It doesn't look like much from the outside. It can be a cow to find if like me, you're not a Wiganer, so your satnav will earn it's keep, and parking may present a problem. Yes, the bar was very noisy when we arrived with our young son and my ageing mother. And then.....they showed us to our table.... More
