Had a lovely lunchtime meal here with the family. We all had the Sunday Roast ( Beef,Chicken) & thoroughly enjoyed it. Cannot wait to return 🙋🏻

I used to work in the area and was a regular visitor. I love the fillet steak Heaton swinger, so I chose this. It is still ok but not its usual standard. The meat just wasn't as tender as it has been in the past. Still good service and good beer though!

lunch with family. Not much choice on the menu. Service was slow but it was busy, waiting staff were friendly. Food was ok but nothing special and quite expensive for what it was.

We booked fanny's for my father's birthday having been here several times before and as a gastro pub that places itself at the top end of the scales you would expect it to be faultless given the prices charged. My black pudding starter at almost £7 was unimaginative. A black pudding with a steak peppercorn sauce. My wife and my... More

This is the second time I have been here with work and I really enjoyed it the first time. We ate from the normal menu last time and this time we ate from the Christmas menu.

Starter was soup with a bread roll, the roll was so cold it had obviously been defrosted , the soup was OK but not great, I had boats cheese tart for... More

Friday night may not the best night for us boomers due to end of the week surge. Very noisy. Pickup shop on the night - with door men! Not what we expected - obviously they are necessary. We have been during the day and the place used to be 'classy'. It seems to be not so much now. The food... More

This place has a cult following and I can understand why - wonderful food, fast service, very efficient and reasonably priced. A good choice of real ales - what is there not to like here. Highly recommend, would come here again.

Visited with colleagues for a leisurely catch up. Attentive waiting on staff, delightful light lunch and easy parking. Busy with a private party in but didn't detract. Well recommended.
