There is a reasonably nice atmosphere and decor, but everything feels like it could do with a clean. Service was fairly quick.

Agree with many previous comments - no idea as to the order of service at the bar. The customers on my visit were basically policing themselves and telling the staff who was due to be served next as they didn't have a clue (surely a basic requirement of bar staff ??). Expansive place, plenty of room and plenty of staff... More

Before I criticise this place....this is the lowest review score I've ever given! 1. Staff were unfriendly and it's so obvious they didn't want to be there doing their job. 2. Most of the tables had dirty glasses and plates on. 3. Ordered fish & chips, paid £1.50 for bread & butter which never arrived, - no staff around at... More

This was a really bad experience. Breakfast took nearly half an hour, the eggs were like rubber and we couldn't get our forks into them and my husband's full English came without the black pudding. We didn't have time to complain or would have missed our flight. Oh yes, they managed to do the baked beans ok! Won't be going... More

After ordering I read the reviews on trip advisor and then waited so see if the meals would arrive and if they were edible. They were fine except the onion rings were cold. Generous portions, served quickly Expensive but we are a captive audience with few choices at the airport terminal.

We had a meal here whilst passing through Manchester Airport Terminal 1 recently. The food was below average and the service was appalling. The bar staff were not interested in taking orders and there were lots of customers waiting. We then waiting 30 minutes for our food before I went up to the bar to ask where our food was.... More

The only female 'working' this evening as so rude and obviously was more interested in cleaning up than serving customers - I was just a irritation.

Big shout out to Damien, the chef who changed my eggs to amazing poached eggs last minute. Changing my mind after I had ordered and he had already done fried eggs he was more than accommodating. Extremely happy and helpfull, despite my request being thrown into the middle of an obviously busy period for the kitchen. Nice to hear happy... More

Nice burger, but service was a little bit slow. And hurrying eating such a burger isn't the best idea.
