What a hidden jewel

Had a family meal on Sunday. We all ordered 2 tapas. Everything was amazing. The slow cooked beef in bourbon was exquisite and the mushroom and blue cheese bruchetta tremendous. Scallops wrapped in pancetta superb and chorizo in almonds and honey scrumptious. Children had enough room for homemade... read more

Me and my wife gave the rake another go, but very disappointed, we had been going to the rake for several years at least once every couple of week, but over the last few month some of the prices have gone up and the portions have gone a lot smaller. why does a slice of lemon need to go on... More

Had a family meal on Sunday. We all ordered 2 tapas. Everything was amazing. The slow cooked beef in bourbon was exquisite and the mushroom and blue cheese bruchetta tremendous. Scallops wrapped in pancetta superb and chorizo in almonds and honey scrumptious. Children had enough room for homemade puddings. Great service great food.

Truly enjoyed this dining experience. The menu was exceedingly varied and inviting and well presented; staff very friendly and accommodating. A wide selection of beers and wine. Only one serious disappointment, the venue is not in able to fully accommodate the range of needs for physically disabled users. Thoroughly enjoyed the occasion however,

The Rake Tapas in Littleborough was very disappointing. The food was ok but the service was terrible .... sat nearly two hours with no food and then came in dribs and drabs. Waitresses (except for one, Helen) were appalling. I would not recommend going to The Rake.

The restraunt staf were really friendly, we arrived slightly early from the opening time but they were happy for us to get drinks and sit in the sunshine whilst the kitchen up and running. We ordered quite a few dishes to share and were... More

I am a big fan of tapas so was excited when this place opened around the corner from me. Unfortunately, the food didn't meet my standards although the atmosphere and staff were lovely. The food all tasted very similar and that taste wasn't one I was a fan of so unfortunately, rather than being disappointed with just one dish, I... More
