“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2009

Stopped here for a late lunch (early Dec) on a whim, with no idea what to expect, and were very pleased with what we found :)

The venue itself, while a tad shabby, is clean and the brick vaults lend it a great ambience, Service was top-notch and - most importantly of all - the food was terrific, All 3 of us chose the fillet steak for a main course (most expensive main) and asked for it to be cooked 3 different ways. It was. It was also mouth-wateringly delicious which, I admit, came as a bit of a relief because I have so often been disappointed by fillet steaks in restaurant of similar class. Not this time.

Starters and deserts were also excellent. The bill came to just over £30 a head for 3 courses each plus a drink each and a coffee each, Very good value for money.

Next time I go to Manchester, I'll make a point of eating here.

“Great British Grub! Excellent local dishes - meat, game, fish.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2009

Our lunchtime Lancashire hotpot was rich and meaty, with pickled red cabbage adding a tangy touch. My only criticism - not quite as hot as name suggests. They were preparing for a game night when we were there - would definitely try it another time.

For dessert there was Eccles cake buttery and juicy, with delicately flavoured Lancashire cheese. Or for chocoholics, melt-in-mouth chocky dessert with vanilla baked apricots.

This bar has a warm, bricky vaulted interior and superb riverside location - we saw cormorant and kingfisher flash by. The outside area will be wonderful in summer. Service prompt, efficient and cheerful. Highly recommended
