Lovely meal from the earlybird menu this evening. £10.95 was a real bargain. Red pepper and tomato homemade soup for starters followed by pork loin on a bed of mashed potato with veg. Only criticism would be the apple sauce on top of mashed potato was out of a jar. Homemade would have been better as was very sweet. Nice... More

When we visit Formby we always eat here. The Staff are very friendly and welcoming and the food is excellent. The lunchtime special (canneloni is our favourite) is amazing value for money.Would highly recommend if you're in the area.

Me and my sister visited yesterday with my 8 year old daughter and were surprised just how quiet it was when we arrived. We all got starters. I opted for the duck spring rolls, they were absolutely gorgeous. My sister got a halloumi and mushroom starter which she said she enjoyed and my daughter got cheesy garlic bread. We all... More

We've had lunch here several times and not been disappointed with the food.It gets rather crowded at lunchtime so be prepared to wait.I love the pasta dishes and the ambience downstairs but upstairs not so much.

Out for a last minute lunch. Good selection, all served piping hot, and tasty. Service cheerful and efficient. Normal type of slightly European menu choices, but something for everyone, of good quality and good quantity.

My cousin lives in Formby and swears by this place and I can see why. I've been a number of times now and each time I have had a lovely meal. I actually expected it to be on the pricey side but it isn't. I recommend the Mozzarella omelette (which comes with frites and salad) but be warned, it's filling.... More
