We've been coming here,on and off, for a few years now. Last year it went terrible ,but with a reformed menu and perhaps a new chef , the food is now very good again. Pleasant staff and good bar choices. However, it desperately needs some...More

This place need some serious attention! The tables are sticky, the carpets threadbare in places, no locks on the toilets and just generally looks so tired. The food is ok, staff could do with some training in customer service and in the things they are...More

This venue has been a lovely meeting place over the years. The food has changed somewhat, but not necessarily for the better. There is a lot of floor space that could be better used for sitting as we call in with a lot of friends...More

Don't even bother walking through the door-there is absolutely nothing good to be said about the place. It's either full of piss-pots during the daytime or full of chavs at night. There's nothing good to be said about the food, staff or venue itself.

Absolutely excellent Sunday dinner. Tasted like homemade. Meat beautifully cooked, homemade yorkshires, lots of different veg and mash and roast potatoes. I eat out most weekends all round Manchester and often choose where to go based on Trip Advisor reviews. However, I rarely make it...More

We decided to stop off for a lazy Afternoon Lunch one sunny Friday. As we'd eaten in here before, we had no hesitation in going back. I'm a big steak fan and went for the ribeye. A fantastic steak cooked to my exact taste (rare)....More
