On arrival, decor was great and shown to our table. Nice temperature of the restaurant. Menus looked like they were thrown on the table and some a bit dog eared and stained.

Went for Lancs Tapas and family had the nachos and the salad with squid. Choice of lager was a bit standard as well - maybe something local?

The food was outstanding. Way beyond expectations. Great portions, superbly cooked and good value. Really impressive

The service however didn’t match - it wasn’t bad - just not as good. Why? - I had to keep asking for stuff be it missed drinks, to order, for deserts, the bill twice. Good service is just to check in now and again with guests. Didn’t leave a tip as I didn’t felt the service was above and beyond

Match service with the food and you have got my new local favourite.

Came specially for the Tuesday Lancashire tapas, have been before and enjoyed it. The mini lamb’s liver and the hot pot are beautiful. Top quality at very reasonable prices. If you’re too full for a dessert I would recommend a hot chocolate with a liqueur in, Cointreau works well. Quite a treat as usually only coffee is offered. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is very relaxing, there is no feeling of being rushed because they need the table as you feel in some places. I look forward to going back soon and will have the same again as it was sooo good This was Tuesday afternoon, weekends and evenings may be busier.

A regular haunt with always good quality food well present, the FRESH fish chips and mushy peas didn't dissappmoint. Not cheap, but you only get what you pay for.
Light and airy and always welcoming staff.
