“Poor service, arrogant management”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The worst Sunday lunch experience in Bury. Arrogant management even have their own reserved spaces in the tiny car park. Chipped crockery, dirty utensils. Poor quality food.

“Excellent place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

There were four of us and we all ate different from the menu and we all really enjoyed it. The atmospher and the food was excellent. The food tasted of the food we ordered instead of it being covered in sauces to mask the taste. We do not live around there as we were visiting friends but I really do recommend if you live around here there I advise you to go where it be a special occasion or just to enjoy a really tasty meal.

“Avoid under all circumstances”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

My wife and I took a good friend here for Sunday lunch with high expectation given some of the reviews presnted here. The only question is was it the same place? The surroundings were of a reasonable standard, the service frenetic and disorganised and the food very poor given the prices paid with the roasts probably cooked in a bag! I struggle to say anything good about this establishment and it is only a shame there is not a zero rating.

Needless to say I will not be returning.
