“Compare and Contrast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Cheaper and better than the Novotel if you're staying next door. Better than the Barton since it changed management. Far nicer ambience than the Bridgewater which seems still to have lost its soul. So for Worsley village, this seems the best offering.

We had lunch for a party of seven and wouldn't fault it. Service was reasonably good (well I left a tip!) and the range of food and drinks was extensive. Yes it's typical conveyor belt food but it fills a space at reasonable (but not give-away) prices.

It's a bit disconcerting to see the huge variance in reviews here. Fair do - we had a good experience and will give it another go. Also good parking and great location if visiting Worsley. Located immediately adjacent to the junction 13 slip road off the M60/62.

“Nice ambience, reasonable prices and good range of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We ate here twice while staying at the adjacent Novotel.Found it a relaxing place to eat with pretty good food at very good prices and much cheaper and more comfortable than eating where were were staying.

“Great food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Friendly staff and plenty of choice on the menu. Usual pub favourites as well as some more unusual dishes. Tables were cleared and cleaned promptly which is always a good sign. Food was very good and reasonably priced as were the drinks.

This is situated near to the Novotel West. The menu is extensive and the value and quality of food is good. Well worth a visit.
