We travelled from Hertfordshire to enjoy a well deserved mother's day lunch! We opted for this restaurant based on the wonderful feedback we had read. The overall service was good; our table was not in a great place which made it difficult for the servers to get to other diners and in the end my husband decided to move his... More

It was my wife's birthday, and I had booked a table for two as well as 2 dozen oysters which didn't show on the online menu as a regular fare. I wan't promised to have them, but that the chef would do his best to accommodate my fancy. Not only were the oysters waiting for us, but they were also... More

Food was nice and good choice, nice service too. Why on earth would you allow dogs to come into a restaurant? Won't be back if they now take priority over humans.

thank you for your review, I adore dogs, but I understand that some people do not, and that is why our upstairs eating and restaurant area is completely a DOG FREE ZONE.

We picked this restaurant because it looked really inviting. We were seated almost immediately upstairs. There were two other tables occupied up there but downstairs was full. We ordered a bottle of wine then chose the 2 courses for £14.99 which we thought very reasonable especially for the choice on the menu. The food was excellent. The decor and ambiance... More

In today for late lunch with my mum - quiet at the time but great friendly service and delicious food. Had the two courses for £14.99 which was more than enough. Wish I wasn't driving wine menu looked good! Will definitely be back to try the wine and homemade ice cream!!

We visited the sand bar for drinks only (on this occasion) but as ever made to feel welcome. Nice atmosphere and friendly clientele. It's a great bar for the over 25's.

Thank you for your great review, as a person who is just a little over the age 25!!!! (2 x 25 plus a couple of years) I don't think I would have the energy to own a place with lots and lots of young people. But Leigh is a town of people who love to go out, regardless of age,... More
