I would agree with a previous reviewer that F&B's St Helens is a bit hit and miss with both the food and the service. We visited on 21.8.13 and our food was nice, the waitress was also nice however the lady that greeted us on the door was grumpy and sour faced (maybe the same one...?) Overall our meal was good (if a little pricey for what we got, £50 for two mains, a starter to share and a few drinks; we will be sticking to the meal deal next time we visit).
We did try and go for breakfast on 18.8.13 but ended up leaving and going to the Running Horses instead as we were kept waiting for ages at the door, then at the bar without any offer of drinks. The staff seemed stressed (short staffed?) and also surprised that a few people had come, on a Sunday morning, for breakfast. How dare they! We wouldn't bother again for breakfast but would come again in the evening.
