The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming and took our booking. When we arrived, I think we were mistaken for Michelin Guide inspectors :) A waiter greeted us by name,... More

Have not been to Boltons for some time but nine of us went The bar staff on arrival were very welcoming as were the staff who took our order. All the food we had was great and unlike many places all came out together .I would recommend this place as would our family from Yorksire.
