Everything was great: the service, the atmosphere, the cocktails (the Sweet Little Nothing is amazing), and the pizza. I was particularly fond of the 'Buddy Holly' pizza. We'll be back.

OUTSTANDING FOOD! Great atmosphere , and if you want a good cocktail this is the place to be day or night. Even had an area for our puppy so we could eat inside ! Brilliant 👍🏼

It's a quirky place and difficult to put your finger on the theme/style, but it was fun and interesting. The food was nice, we had pizzas and calzone, which were pleasant, but not bowl me over delicious. There was good choice of cocktails. The service was good too, so overall a bit above average and I would be happy to... More

Just had lunch with friends and to be honest had never thought of trying this place previously. The outside appearance was confusing as did not know whether it was just another bar. The entrance was tired and in need of kerb appeal. However once inside I was delighted to see a wood fired oven and boxes with a rainbow of... More

This bar/restaurant continues to evolve and improve. The quality of the food has never been better...the best Pizza in Bury...Great Mexican nights.....and this is reflected by how busy it is both at lunch and in the evening. Great bar staff, friendly atmosphere, and (apparently) a great Night Club after my bedtime!

We popped in for some lunch as the rain had started and the place looked inviting, with mismatched seating and funky candles across the restaurant. We ordered a panini and some nachos which were nice, though unremarkable. The Panini was served with a nice side salad, but the guac and salsa on the nachos appeared to be spooned out of... More

Hi, thanks for trying The LP out for food. Just to clear up a point that you made. We do not buy anything from Sainsbury's. We make all our own guacamole and salsa. Hope to see you again. More

We come here mainly for drinks or pizza. It's usually pretty busy but the service is still good. We are always happy with the food, although we usually only get the pizza. It can be slightly expensive but overall if you go here you likely won't be disappointed. I'd recommend it.

Had the fajita burrito and it was absolutely delicious! The seasoning, spice level, and the amount were perfect! Also tried out the horchata and that was a pretty good as well. It was totally worth the wait for the day to come. I would've taken a picture but I inhaled my meal. Lol I'm Latino and I approve! 😆

For my latest visit to LP for a meal and a few drinks, I was accompanied by the girl I have been seeing now for a while. As a traditional Yorkshire lass, I wanted to show her something unique to Bury, something modern, trendy and hip. It so happened to be the case that on the evening of the visit... More

A wood-stone oven cooks up authentic Italian style pizza and pasta. Freshly made salads, sandwiches and snacks are also on the menu. Ingredients are chosen for their quality alone and, where possible, are free-range and generally nice to our planet.
