I ordered the brandy steak Alfredo which stated contained strips of fillet steak. When the meal arrived the steak was in thick rubbery lumps. Having sent it back was advised the steak was from 'a bad batch' and they would happily cook me a fillet...steak and slice it onto another dish for me. Isn't that what should have been done in the first place? I couldn't have the fish as I suffer from a severe shellfish allergy and the fish was stored in the same area as the shellfish. Left the restaurant hungry.More

I visit the waterside on a regular basis, either to share a bottle of red with my partner, or Sunday lunch. The atmosphere is perfect and staff very friendly. It is also dog friendly so I call in whilst taking my dog for a walk,...and the staff will offer her a bowl of water. When the weather is warm it is the perfect place to go for a pub lunch, sat outside watching the barges go by, and there is often live background music on, both indoors in winter and outdoors in summer. Could not fault anything about the waterside.More

Had and excellent visit and our family stayed for three nights over a long weekend. The rooms were spotlessly clean with great decor,good facilities and overlooked the canal. We eat at the restaurant a couple of times and the food was varied and of good...quality. The staff were pleasant and attentive,particularly Mike the front of house manager who was excellant. When we return to Manchester we will definitely be staying here again.More

We were a party of 20 celebrating a special birthday, we were given our own little area which was lovely, everyone commented on how delicious the food was from the various Sunday dinner options to the burgers, there was so much choice which is great...when you have kids with you, the service was outstanding too. One of the party was coeliac too which was no problem at all. Fabulous from start to finish! Highly recommend!More

We visited today for a family breakfast, 5 households comprising 11 adults, one toddler and a dog. I had contacted the owners in advance and asked if we could be seated somewhere more private as although the toddler is well behaved, he is 2.5, and...I didn't expect him to remain seated for the entire time we were there. We were seated in a room at the rear of the restaurant which was a perfect size for our group and meant he could walk around the table visiting each family member having a little chat and showing his toys, whilst waiting for the food to arrive. This made it so much more relaxing for us, as we knew he wouldn't be disturbing anybody else. Being able to bring the dog was great, as it meant one family member was able to join us who otherwise would not have been able to do so. We don't manage to all get together as one group as often as we would like due to conflicting work patterns, so this was a rare treat. Adults, child and dog were made welcome, Food was lovely and enjoyed by everyone - including the little one. Very accommodating, lovely rooms and nice atmosphere. Would recommend and have done so following previous visits.More
