Great Sunday lunch. Food was beautiful, the roast beef was melt in the mouth and the service was very attentive. Only down side to it was the courses could of been slightly slower to come out. However overall very good. Will definitely go again.

It has been quite some time since we have eaten at the Dining Room and have only ever been for Sunday lunch. My first impression was that they seem to have squeezed as many tables in as possible and the place although quite big felt very hemmed in. The starters and mains we had between four of us on the...

I went here with my family last night and we all really enjoyed our meals. The lamb chump main was fantastic; the lamb was pink and melted in your mouth. The apple and blackberry crumble dessert was also amazing. The place has a great atmosphere and lovely staff. I look forward to returning.

Recently visited the dining room in Leigh, first of all the temperature of the restaurant was ridiculously hot which made the whole evening rather uncomfortable. To start I had the lamb cake, this was a fairly tasteless lamb in a crumb with a bit of side salad, not a great start to the meal. My girlfriend had prawn cocktail which... More

Wow is all I can say. Staff were amazing. Attentive yet not intrusive. Prices were very reasonable. We had the prawn and crayfish cocktail which was gorgeous. I had the beetroot tartine which was huge. The wine prices very good. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

A lovely evening with good friends... A great atmosphere... Although sometimes very loud...food was lovely although felt this menu didn't offer as much choice as when I've been previously... Good value for money with a two course for £16.95 I think and 3 courses for an extra £2... However be aware that a lot of the dishes don't come with... More

Ten of us had Sunday lunch here yesterday and we had a lovely meal in this busy and atmospheric restaurant. The staff are proffessional and nothing is too much trouble. Most of us apart from the two youngest children had roast lunches, the menu has a good selection of different dishes, the food was good and well presented. There were... More
