On a long trip back to Manchester, 10.30pm at night with no services or public toilets nearby I called in quickly to use the loo. I asked the man at the bar nicely (because I am polite and wouldn't usually use facilities somewhere I was not a customer, but had no option) and he was incredibly blunt and rude to... More

My partner and I went here for Sunday lunch today. We had a 3 course meal at a very reasonable price. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were friendly. The food was nicely presented and very tasty. All in all a positive experience and will be returning in the future.

We were staying nearby so decided to have a Sunday treat. Booking is essential as it is quite small and seemingly very popular. Three of us had the roast beef which was just divine and my two teenage sons had the roast pork, which they said was also lovely. Can't fault any of the food and even asked for more... More

Whilst staying in the local area for the weekend this place was highmy recommended to us by other local pubs. We both agreed that the service was great and the food was without doubt the best we had ever had in a pub, and better than many restaurants we have eaten in around the world. Highly recommended if you like... More

Had a lovely warm welcome and all the staff were friendly and accomodating. Mixed reviews on the food as a table of 6. 3 of us were very happy with our food while 3 of us found the meat tough and one meal was lukewarm, hence the average rating. But service cannot be faulted at all. I would return but... More

We stopped here by accident. We were passing and we were hungry - but a great find. It was nearing 2pm but Richard (who turned out to be a fellow Tyke) was happy to seat and feed us. Ploughmans and soups all round with a beer - sadly no more as the driver was forcing us on. Would love to... More
