Decided to visit with friends after hearing only good reviews. Staff were instantly welcoming and friendly and were joking around with us. The menu was great if you're into hearty home-made food and has a lot of all-day breakfasty type foods + brunches. I ordered a panini, which came with a big salad and was massive and lovely. Also had... More

Arrived at 10.30 was seated straight away for a table of two. The server I had was great with allergies and knew her menu, and told me how she could swap bits for gluten free bread and add or take things away. Food was served quickly and was a good portion. I had salmon and scrambled eggs which was lovely... More

The restaurant could not take our booking inside as there was too many of us, so they made tables available outside for us all. They provided cushions and blankets for us , what a... More

Fantastic food, staff are always very pleasant and friendly. It isn't cheap but you totally get what you pay for!! Best poached eggs in Leigh. For me this is a lovely treat, I have been at least six times in 4 years and it has always been a lovely experience.

Then maybe I could spend even more time here! This place has been fantastic since the day it opened. And unlike so many others in the area has continued to be outstanding amongst a crowd of very average and mainly over priced competitors in L-o-S....

Stop the world is always busy because the food and service are always good. Breakfast for me is Eggs Benedict. The Bubble and Squeak is also fab.
