We visited this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday having just moved into the area. We have been to the sister restaurant The Palm Tree in Leigh and loved that so were hopeful this would be as good. We were not disappointed - the service, food and atmosphere was superb. We hope to return soon.

Recently visited this restaurant for the first time as a table of four to celebrate two birthdays. The restaurant was very busy but the service was excellent. All starters and main meals were very good and fillet steak cooked just right. Would definitely recommend. We will be returning.
