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.

Lovely food served by friendly staff in great surroundings. 4 of us ate 4 different main meals and we were all impressed at the standard. Shame we didn't have enough time for puddings.

We had a Saturday dinner back in July. We were first placed in the passage between the kitchen and the tables. After few minutes enduring the stamping feet of one of the waitresses (who must have been an elephant in a previous life), we were granted another more peaceful table. After that wonky start, the meals arrived, and everything was... More
