I arranged to meet an old friend at The Woodside for lunch. Very easy to find just off the East Lancs. Large carpark. Well presented and decorated to a high standard, the pub has a relaxed but efficient atmosphere. We selected food from the lunch time deal which was 3 courses. The food was very nice, well cooked and presented.... More

They say once bitten twice shy. Well we have had two disappointing visits here and will not be chancing a third. We visited pre Christmas, four of us, two of the meals were inedible and had to be replaced which is not great as we then ended up with two people eating and finishing whilst two waited for the food...

Called in without booking a table at 6:00 and told that the next table avaliable would be at 7:45 but could dine in the bar using the same menu. So we order drinks and a bar snack waiting for a table. The bar service was a lot better then restaurant side. Food was good let down by the service.

Have lived in Leigh for many years and commute to and from Manchester, going past the Woodside. Have called in a few times with my other half and have generally found it less than welcoming. The same today. Got the feeling from the guy behind the bar that it was an inconvenience for him to serve me. Tried to engage... More

My wife and I called in for a quick lunch. We ordered a roast beef sandwich and fries. Quite frankly it was the worse sandwich we have ever experienced. The beef was cold and so 'tuff' it was inedible - gristle and overlooked. If they cant get a sandwich right what chance the rest of the menu ? Won't go... More

Nobody to seat us so we randomly found a table that was unoccupied but asked to move in case they got busy,service was slow and although we had the set lunch menu it was very small portions and not good value whatsoever.Very poorly presented.There are plenty of local pubs in driving distance that offer fay better value and service.

Service was slow, food poorly presented and cold won't be coming back, no apology too busy focused on getting more people in an already overcrowded restaurant. So disappointing !!

On way to a show in Manchester late Saturday afternoon called in for some food, staff were very accommodating found us a well presented table in quiet part of the pub. Lots of choice on the menu from usual food grub but also offer good alternatives. Quality of the food was very good and heads above your standard pub grub.... More

Whilst the serving staff were lovely (we were served by Danny), the chef's attitude was patronising and rude. I ordered a rare steak. I know full well what a rare steak is and what it looks and tastes like as I have been eating them for nigh on 23 years. The steak I was served was medium to well done... More

Very nice surroundings with a calm atmosphere. We had Sunday lunch here a few weeks ago. The staff were lovely polite and very keen. The Sunday lunch was tasty but could have done with a little more food on the plate. This place is nice for eats or a drink. This will now become one of my favourite haunts
