“Fabulous food, top service and real atmosphere”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We went to Tickethall as part of a friends 50th birthday. The food was sensational and this isn't an under statement. I'd never had such a succulent steak since being the USA but the rib eye steak came and it was so tender and wonderfully seasoned.

The Tickethall boast that their menu is dependent on what comes in fresh that day. The fish, the meat the veg. We had a rather strange green cauliflower like veg. I was so bemused by this the following week I went up to see Bryan Radcliffe (the farmer who supplies the veg) to buy one!

It was a great night and the service was superb. The venue was unlicensed so you can bring your favorite wine or tipple.

Be warned though, this place books up fast. Testament to the reputation it's rightfully gained.

Reviewed September 10, 2013

The food was freshly cooked, well presented and a reasonabel price. The setting - the ticket hall had lots of railway memorabilia and you could hear and see the steam trains come and go,

“Interesting Venue with Good Food”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I called in to fill an hour while I was waiting to catch the ferry home. Parking was easy.

On top of all the interesting items and posters from a bye-gone age I enjoyed my food and coffee.

I watched the steam train fill up with passengers and depart, another bit of nostalgia.

I finished off with a chunk of bread and butter pudding which I highly recommend

“Fresh, locally sourced, beautifully presented food”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Fresh, locally sourced beautifully presented meals when presented with food this good it makes you feel very special. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, staff brilliant - its the place you just want to go back to again and again and again (perhaps should consider moving to the Isle of Man!)
