Third visit here and the standards are as high as ever. If you’re after a lifestyle restaurant that offers fashion and bling over quality, go elsewhere.

Brian and his team offer superb quality, a great choice in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. The quality was amazing, the service absolutely lovely and the price amazingly reasonable.

Can’t wait to go again.

Stumbled across this restaurant and so glad we did. Great food, service and ambience at a reasonable price.
Would definitely go again and wouldn’t hesitate recommending to family and friends.

We have eaten here many times with friends and family. Another excellent meal this evening. Attentive service, fish cooked perfectly, excellent wine list and great value house wine. One of the best if not the best restaurant in Leigh.

We were a party of 6. 1 of which had been there some time ago & we (5) had to get him to try again.

Unfortunatley the dark haired waitress (Sat night) was on again!
She blatantly ignored us, when we ask for things, like ice or more wine!
Whisking away the ice bucket and then saying "Oh you want another bottle do you?" We'd had to ask for the ice bucket as the wine although cold wasn't quite cold enough. This she found questionable? So when we requested some more iced it was met with a frosty face.
It got to be a joke, Fawlty Towers style. With the waitress questioning our every order!
Most off putting!
However the food was Devine.. I love Scallops & to get them these days with the rows on is a Huge thing? Plus these were Kings.. Fantastic.. Compliments to the Chef.

All in all we shouldn't have paid the service charge.. & will be hesitate to ever try it again, What a great shame! She is single handily ruining this business.
They only had 7 people on a Saturday night!
