If you are looking for lunch in Wigan then you won't find much better value.as far as the food goes. We had the chicken and bacon on ciabata with a side of fries. It sounds basic but they managed to take it up to another level. I would be very happy to lunch here again. The wine was a tad... More

The food is still awesome but it's a shame they don't have live music anymore. The atmosphere has suffered a lot because there's no live music anymore. Part of your dining experience is the atmosphere of a place and its sad to see this place without some live singer as it was so great with one and now it's not... More

I have been here numerous times and did a review a few years ago. After which the restaurant did suffer from time keeping issues. The food has always been quality. However after speaking to Jane (owner) she informed me at the time that her staff had changed and she was teaching them hospitality skills. Fair enough and it was nice... More

Went to the newly refurbished Red Door Bistro with my husband on the opening night, Valentines Day. The place looks great. It's very classy with great ambience. To me the best restaurant Wigan has to offer. The menu changes daily. I like that touch, as you'd never get board of going as there is always something different to try. The... More

This is a rather small quirky restaurant in the town centre. This was our first visit and we had booked the previous day and was informed the restaurant would be full that night On arrival we were pleasantly greeted and shown to a table for two which was rather small and cramped We ordered seven tapas plates which were larger...

Service is slow, food was overpriced and bland. Drinks were good and the waitress was pleasant and accommodating. Overall not recommended.

We did not receive our food until 2pm. At which point some had already left because they couldn't wait any longer and had to get... More

Visited for lunch with my Daughter and her boyfriend. Found the restaurant through trip advisor reviews so expectations were high and we were not disappointed. We all had three courses which were all delicious, staff were very friendly without being intrusive. 3 courses each with 3 rounds of drinks all for £68.....bargain! Also gave my Daughter a free drink and... More
