Genuinely the best fish & chips ive ever had. I'm a tourist so no expert, but would definately advise this restaurant to travellers who're looking for good typical British food. The Manchester Three Rivers Gin is awesome too!More

Always good to find a restaurant that isn’t a chain when travelling with work. From the outside you can’t see the lovely decoration - very traditional. Spoilt for choice with food. I had pork chop with champ. My colleague had a special haddock with poached...More
