We were in Wigan in mid-July, and wandered the streets late in the evening looking for a place to eat, after a long flight and train ride. We literally stumbled across this place, and highly recommend it. It is quite popular with the locals. We selected some options from their fixed price menus, and were very happy with value and...

Very busy evening when we ate, the staff coped very well. Food was excellent. Table area very clean, toilets very clean. Seated very quickly and drinks order taken and delivery promptly. It was a little bit too busy for us, but this did not spoil our evening.

Friendly welcome. Good atmosphere inside. Nicely decorated too. Very busy at weekends. Sadly my steak wasn't up to much in terms of flavour. It's saving grace was the sauce I ordered with it.
