Absolutely my favourite place in town where I like to bring my loved ones to share pleasant food and an exceptionally quirky and attentively sourced wine list. Dishes also host traditionally poor ingredients such as snails, pork ear or on cheeks which caress my food ethics and are elevated to Michelin star level without the trauma of a harsh bill... More

Four of us had dinner on Saturday evening. The meal was quite simply superb. The menu is very cleverly put together, with an intriguing blend of Italian and English ingredients and dishes. The starters are so appetising you almost wish you could have some for main courses, particularly the sweetbreads. I particularly liked the use of offal, and so tried... More

I took my husband here for a special treat for his 50th birthday. We had been before and enjoyed it. NOT this time though, my husband had steak which was very tough and he had to leave some. I had venison but the jus had such a strong taste you could not even taste the meat. When we complained the... More

My wife and I visited here as I wanted to try somewhere that served food that we didn't know so we couldn't just go for food that we always go for. It's time to be adventurous when you eat here and you won't be disappointed. We really enjoyed our meal, my wine was great too.

We've been to Pea Porridge a few times now and have never been disappointed. This visit was no exception with great food, great drink, great atmosphere and great staff. This restaurant is amongst the best in Bury.

We were lucky enough to be invited to Pea Porridge for a 50th birthday celebration where a large group of us were treated to a truly wonderful evening. Inventive, flavoursome and exquisitely balanced dishes flowed one after the other and the service was second to none. Hats off to Pea Porridge, this was honestly up there with fine dining in...

Pea Porridge will never let you down, it has charm along with quirkiness, surprising nooks and crannies. The decoration is an eclectic mix. We dined in the old bakery room with the bread oven still in place and looking as it could be fired up tomorrow. Now to the important bit, the food and wine. The food and service is... More
