I was very impressed with a choice on menu as I have friends with very different tastes varied from vegetarians to vegetable hatters. We all had a great meal! Desserts were very delicious. Thanks to waiters who were very attentive and helpful. Great night out!

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.

Went there with my girlfriend and future wife! Food was very nice and hot. Nice little candle light on the table. It is not a large restaurant we felt very cosy there. They put automatic 10% on the bill. Please remember anywhere you go you never have to pay the % if you’re not happy with the food or service... More
