Stopped off this weekend while passing through the area with the missus; we have never been before but were reccomended by a local friend- it did not dissapoint! From the warm welcome upon arrival to the friendly goodbye at the end, the place couldn't be faulted. I opted to dine off the specials (Crispy duck pancakes to start followed by... More

I concur with the previous reviewer. We went last night and the service was awful. We were shown to our table on arrival and that was it for 20 minutes. No one came to us to either take our order or ask if we would like a drink. After 20 minutes had elapsed I went to the bar only to... More

We visit the O&O quite regularly, but tonight's service as awful. We waited ten minutes to get a menu and twenty for our drink. We watched the waitress come out with two plates and she went to serve them at three different tables went back to the server then brought them to us, after they had been n everyone's table,...

I called in on spec for a light bite and a quiet drink in passing. Had a draught beer which was perfectly kept and presented, and cod goujons to snack on. The fish was perfectly cooked, melt in your mouth and bursting with flavour - clearly very fresh! It was presented with a sauce tartar, freshly prepared and very tasty.... More

This modern pub has been nicely decorated inside and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The menu features fish and seafood and we ordered a starter and two main fish dishes from the specials board. The starter of vietnamese skewers was OK - meat pieces nice and tender -but at £9.50 a throw , we expected better - its... More

An odd looking place from the outside but it is deceptively spacious inside and a lovely atmosphere. Wood burning stoves and large tables with plenty of space between. Attractive bar area and very comfortable. We chose from the lunchtime menu and had a large piece of haddock each with a Lancashire cheese crumb crust. It came with a light cheese... More

I arranged my mums wake to be held the O and O. The management were really helpful and opened up early to allow everyone to attend, as this was an early service. Everyone commented on how good the buffet was and the service of the staff. I would recommend a visit to anybody.

The place is well set out... The food good if often a little too fancy but the service was patchy and very slow. The restaurant was no more than HALF full. Goodness only knows if it had been full!!!!!????!!?!?

I'm one of those pesky non-meat eating types but I do go in for fish so I enjoy eating here. I went last night with my husband, two children and Nanna and ordered the hake with patatas bravas. The perfect dish for me - lovely fish steak with potatoes and a spicy sauce, yum! However, a couple of bites in... More
