I am completely appalled by this restaurant, the service was shockingly bad and they treat children as an inconvenience. We were a party of 20 they split our order into 3 checks and promised that there wouldn't be too much of a wait between checks, by the time the top end of the table had finished their meals the bottom...

The new lunch menu at colours is great as there is something for everyone. A snack if you are in a hurry or. 3 courses if you can linger. The ambience makes it a good place to lunch with friends.

Been to this restaurant a few times, don't be put off by the staff being students. If anything I think its better than other fine dining restaurants I have been too. They always put 100% into everything they do and yes sometimes mistakes happen but they're still learning. Always greeted very politely at the door and introduced to my server... More

Beautiful from beginning to end. Warmly greeted by name and given time to enjoy a drink and to peruse the menu. After choosing we were shown to our table and waited on very professionally. Absolutely super food and super service. Most certainly will visit again and spread the word. Fine dining in St Helens

My wife and I responded to a circular email inviting us to an evening with Nigel Haworth, Chef Patron of Northcote and winner of The Great British Menu.

25 of us sat down for Sunday lunch. For the 1st time I was just a little disappointed, not with the food which was lovely & plentiful, but the mains on the menu were 3 roasts, a fish dish & a veg option. I think they could have dropped 1 roast & put something different on. Also my end of... More
