Expected more from this restaurant...Food and the service were below average. Very open room which was extremely noisy so it was not the most relaxing meal. We also found the chairs uncomfortable. Wouldn't revisit. 👎

Went with family for a close friend 40th Birthday. Have to say the food and service was excellent, the staff were very attentive to our needs. Originally booked a table for six then at the last minute someone else asked to join us, this was no problem. The food was well cooked and we didn't have to wait long for... More

Wow! What more can I say. Considering this is smallish Restaurant I cannot praise them enough on their amazing service and the tastiest Wedding Breakfast my hubby and I have ever had. The tables were all laid out crisp and clean. Starched napkins, polished cutlery and sparkling glassware. Full condiments of sea salt and black pepper (a pet hate when... More

Lovely 'local' restaurant in Ashton Village - easy 15 minute walk from Sale centre... and WELL worth the walk! Main menu and 'early bird' set price menu to choose from. We both wanted at least three choices for each course. Starters: Lamb flatbread with hummus and frost sausage with cabbage and bacon - shared - both really tasty. Skate wing... More

Having visited here a few times I have always meant to leave a glowing review but on this occasion I felt compelled to. In all my visits I have been very impressed by the quality of service and food and last night was no exception. Despite being a busy Saturday night the standards were just as high as always and...

This is a small, local and extremely friendly restaurant that goes out of its way to make people feel welcome and also serves exceptional food. We're very lucky to have it in our little village.

The Fat Loaf restaurant in Sale is an absolute find and a local favourite. The brainchild of chefs Paul Taylor and Tim Wood who trained under Michelin-starred Marco Pierre White at the Lowry, The Fat Loaf is a brilliant bistro. The open kitchen lets you watch them work. Sourcing is taken seriously – local wherever possible, excellent at all times. The menu is modern European prepared with imagination and flair. It’s perfectly set in a storefront restaurant with slate floors, white chairs, neutrally coloured walls and an array of art photography on display. Formerly a bring-your-own-wine place, The Fat Loaf now offers a short, thoughtful, international wines list at prices so reasonable you’ll have to blink
