My wife and I had a meal here a few weeks back on our way out to a night with friends so a bit of a spur of the moment thing.
Lets get things clear from the start "this is a village pub" that serves food. The Landlord made it very clear that they are a pub and was very humble when praised so here goes. We have had many a meal in many a restaurant over the years both run of the mill and up market but this place leaves them all in the distance it really was that good.
I ordered a Rump steak Rare! as always a test of a good Chef as most can not cook a steak to my liking, My wife had the gammon off the board also. I asked if they did sauces "what would you like us to make" I asked for a Diane and "Ok we will make you one!!!". the meals arrived from a kitchen that is tiny and if you go outside you can see them through the side window and we were just blown away, The steak was cooked to perfection the Diane sauce arrived in a Gravy Boat lol, Val was dipping her chips in it, the portions were more than we could manage and one of the chefs popped out to ask if everything was ok! Amazing.
When I went to pay I told the Landlord how impressed we were and he said "that will be my Irish wife, you won't go hungry here" Brilliant !!
So if you are in the Bury area and just wander a few miles out of your way you will find The Major on the main road just outside of Ramsbottom. Stop Eat and Be Amazed it really is one of those "Special Finds" that are hiding away behind all the 2 for1's that we just accept as the norm. Oh and the bill think it was about £32 for the meals and 2 drinks each ! Gave him £40 and could not take the change as paid far more for much less.
Don't Forget It Is Just A PUB !!!!
