It was very busy on Sunday. Lots of families, dogs. Luckily we got our table after 20 minutes. We ordered Sunday roast and it was good! Felt like home cooked food. Price for Sunday roast was almost 15 pounds.

Dogs are not allowed in the restaurant they are only allowed downstairs in the bar. This helps with the lovely community atmosphere of the bar and the dogs are very welcome by most visitors.

Yes very much so. My children are often here with me. It's our local. Fenced area and benches outdoors. Common sense prevails obviously to keep an eye on them but we love it there

The wharf has its own monitored car park and there are numerous car parks close by. First Avenue is an excellent short/long stay car park and the local NCP car parks on Deansgate are reasonably priced also.
