“Needs to make its mind up what it is – Restaurant or Takeaway?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

The Beecher’s restaurant is located in the Thistle Hotel at Haydock. Booking was easy and there is adequate parking (though somewhat dependant on other events at the hotel).

I have used this restaurant whilst staying at the hotel whilst on business in the area. First impressions were good and the actual restaurant area is in keeping with the Georgian style of the 4* hotel which gives it a good ambiance for dining.

The Staff were friendly, professional and knowledgeable enough to answer any questions concerning the menu itself which gave an adequate choice, including alternatives for the vegetarian palates. However this is where there is a need for direction and making up its mind to what it actually is… Part of their menu covers what I can on describe as being more in keeping with a local pizza house takeaway than the modern Bistro with British and European cuisines that it is trying to portray itself as (and which would be more in keeping with the ambience and its 4* location). Almost the same menu is also available in the bar area so why book into the restaurant in the first place.

The food ordered was excellent in its preparation, presentation and portion size – again very much in keeping with a modern European cuisine and reasonably priced. However the wine menu is somewhat limited, especially when it comes to items of a sparkling nature.

As a business traveller I would recommend this restaurant for its modern ambience, approach and some of its food – however it really does need to take decide what it actually is in terms of cuisine and what impression it wants to give.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

I ate here the night before my wedding with a group of 4 and each of us was very impressed with our two course meal. We were too full for desert.

“Over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We went for a meal as part of our stay at the hotel
The food was okay but nothing you wouldn't find in a normal pub which considering the price isn't very good at all
The service was very good which saved it from being marked a two instead for overall
