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

Visited for a friend's 50th birthday on Saturday 14th March. The food was fantastic, service was great too. Had the set menu for £15.95 (before 7pm on a Saturday). Will definitely be going again. The Chicken breast with garlic mash was gorgeous.

After waiting in a very cramped small area we were finally shown to our pre-booked table for 15. Once settled right next to the service area we were served our starters. No waitress/waiter was assigned to us so we had no clue who to speak to regarding anything. We were served/given (if I should call it that) our food. The... More

Party of ten all ate and drank on Friday night. I was pleasantly surprised at the atmosphere and decor. The food was good, however, I did feel that this was the type of place to go if you were in a group. Service was very quick although it sometimes felt like you were on a conveyor belt with staff attacking... More

the food was cold by the time they brought it to our table, the service was terrible 45 minutes we had to wait for our table and didn't even bother to take our drinks order for another 20 mins after we sat down and had to wait half an hour before we even got our starter! Won't be going here... More

We went here with friends it has a great vibe for Wigan and the food is great. The staff are very attentive and you get a lot for your money. We will most definitely go back when we go to Wigan again
