My partner and I visited here for my birthday and really enjoyed it. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel extremely welcome and felt comfortable immediately within the pleasant surroundings.
For my starter I chose the famous Mr. Holden's Manchester Egg which came with a rasher of melt-in the-mouth maple bacon and a mysterious "Manchester Caviar" - I'm not quite sure what the latter was, but it tasted nice and was a perfect accompaniment to an already tasty dish.
When it comes to restaurants, my choice of dish is highly predictable as I more often than not opt for a burger> I like to consider myself as a bit of a burger connoisseur and was certainly not let down with the Cheese and Maple Bacon Burger. It was cooked to perfection and the beef was extremely succulent and juicy. The burger came with a seemingly endless bucket of Skinny Fries, a pot of sweetcorn relish and a dollop of coleslaw.
When the bill arrived, we were pleasantly surprised as to how reasonable it was - £40 for two starters, two mains, a cocktail and large glass of red wine is certainly good value.
The decor is smartly arranged and has a warm feel about it. The service was excellent and the staff seemed to enjoy working there - which is always a good sign.
We both agreed that we would visit again soon...
