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

Went here for the BBQ event eat as much as you want and we did. The staff were very attentive and relaxed. Everyone eating seemed to be relaxed and enjoying the event. A big thumbs up to all the staff, including the kitchen staff who came out to ask how people enjoyed it . A credit to all involved.
