“Brilliant time, great good, fantastic staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

I organised a birthday meal for my husband for 46 people. Rob the owner was brilliant at helping me organise the Evening and everything went with out a hitch. The food was amazing, everyone got what they ordered and was at a high quality. There is a bar area as well as the restaurant and we stayed there all night. There were other diners and another party going on but you wouldn't have notice as the staff we great and well organised. Thank you to everyone there, I would recommend this place for a good meal and party!!!!

“Sunday lunch in pleasant surroundings.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Enjoyed a good Sunday lunch in pleasant surroundings. There was a good choice and the food was hot and tasty. Although we were not brave enough to try the butternut squash and coconut soup, we enjoyed the black pudding and egg with mustard sauce. We had the roast dinners and they were good. The veg was served separately and perhaps there should have been more carrot mash with the broccoli and cauliflower, but that is only a small point - not quite enough for four. The desserts were good. I can recommend the strawberry mess!
The staff were friendly and there was a friendly, unhurried atmosphere. No loud music or loud voices interrupted our conversation. The service was good and we were not rushed to finish. They also took notice of the children (5 and nearly 1) and interacted with them when possible.
All in all, a good lunch and good value at £12.95 for 2 courses and £15.95 for 3 courses. Note - they have an offer that gives a free meal for The Birthday Treat ! Eat the within 3 Days of your birthday and receive a 3 Course EVENING Meal FREE When You Book a Table for 4 OR a 2 Course EVENING Meal When You Book a Table for 2 People. ( Photo Id Required With Date Of Birth). We were there for my husband's birthday but unfortunately he does not have photo ID and did not have any proof with him to show his age (60+).

“Excellent food and service you can rely on.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We have had a break from visiting the 'frog' regularly and have been trying elsewhere, only to be dissapointed. So, we returned twice recently. The standard of meals turned out remains as high as ever. No matter how many are at the table and how many different dishes are ordered they all come at the same time and alsways hot, something other places are unable to achieve.
The service is attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Nothing else to say - great food at sensible prices.

“Saturday Evening Family Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

We could almost say we are semi-regular, it tends to be when I visit my parents in Southport as they live only up the road. We dined early Saturday evening, and as ever, we were warmly welcomed by the owner, who was wearing the chef's whites ready to start cooking for the evening. Always a lovely menu of very tempting Mediterranean styled dishes. The food was excellent and with bread and oils always brought to the table first, fresh vegetables severed with the main dishes and depending on the menu a free half litter of wine. Book early as it was certainly busy, even for an early Saturday evening.
