“Tea for two!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Yet another Vintage Inns restaurant.

As usual, the building and decor are very 'olde worlde' and relaxing. Service was good.

I've never noticed this on their menus before - you can't get 'tea for two' in a large pot - they will only serve two individual pots which, of course, costs more.

Tip - if you just want tea for two, drive ten minutes up the M65 to J7 and go the the Dunkenhalgh Hotel. Tea for two in much more palatial surroundings is £1 cheaper!

“Little gem tucked away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Visited yesterday for family meal! Food excellent, fresh and well cooked. Only trouble we had was with the service which is a shame. Tip- go on Chrissy's day off.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

We went to celebrate a family birthday. The food has always been good here but the roast dinner was delicious and just the right amount. The kids enjoyed their food too. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good food experience.

“Birthday repeats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

This was our second visit, almost one year on & we were not disappointed.
(We even came back the following evening it was so enjoyable).
What can one say, the food was beautifully cooked, well presented & of excellent quality & quantity.
Service, as usual, from Crissie (not forgetting her 12 babies) & Stephanie was fantastic & the banter flowed on both evenings.
We will definitely return again next year.
Thank you for two great evenings.
