“nice food, great for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

nice place, good atmosphere, play trial outside for young children when weather permitted, good value special deal where children can dine for £1 during certain hours. They really make an effort to make it family friendly, however, some customers dont quite feel the same way. last time we went, there was a grumpy old man kept tutting and complaining to his wife at the top of his voice about other children making too much noise when he was by far the loudest in there!

“The BEST carvery for miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

There are a lot of nice pubs that do a carvery, but NONE of them come close to the Hesketh! Freindly staff, GREAT fresh food, with an excellent choices of meat, Chineese style pork, gammon, turkey, beef, all for £9 (on a sunday) it's less in the week.

Nicley laid out with a relaxed atmosphere, the quiz night on Tuesday's( i think) is also excellent

“Cheap and Cheerful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I spend a lot of time in Manchester mainly at the airport. This place is a good carvery at a good price. If I had a criticism it would only be that to handle the plates and the serving utensils one needs asbestos fingers, as everything is under bloody hot lamps. The meat however is cooked well and the vegetables are in abundance. So couple that with the price and it's good value for money. Not a place to take the wife or g/f to impress them however :)

“ACE!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Basically this place mainly serves carvery so why are people complaining about lack of choice? Has a handful of other options on the menu.

I eat out 3-4 times a week and am yet to find a place better for a carvery, its amazing. I probably go 4-5 times a month, have had 2 average meals there in the past 3 1/2 years. They offer a good choice of meat, plus they always have a special on which the chef’s will have cooked as a seperate option to your meat. Great choice of veg and spuds (Carrots can be hard from time to time.....sort it out!!!!) Good salad bar selection, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Gravy is well nice, plus giant home made Yorkshire puds. Good selection of desserts.

Can get busy on a sunday but what do you expect, who doesn’t want there sunday dinner cooked for them.

Ignore the few bad reviews, show me a place that is perfect. Yes they are entitled to their opinion but some people to like to moan.
