Lovely place and fantastic staff. The menu is a little limited though so we did struggle to select what we wanted.

Excellent food and service price of beer also not bad, ate here on a Friday evening and found it to be very popular even so there was no push to give table up like they do in other restraunts.

What the hell is the point in ringing at 7.50pm to book a table for 9pm and when you turn up in a group of 6 get told that we cannot serve you as the kitchen is now closed we traveled from Liverpool on a recommendation and to be refused to be served. In would understand if we just showed... More

Been well impressed with all the top eating places in Wigan, the Fat Olive is right up there. Went for the set priced meal on a Monday night and totally impressed, excellent choices, food (lush) and service and great value for money. Can't wait for Wednesday grill night....

We went to the restaurant on Saturday night after a trip to the theatre with friends. We were met as always by the very friendly owner and staff. We had chance for a drink at the bar before being shown to our table. Although gone seven we were still given the opportunity to order from the fixed prix menu. The... More

We ate here last night with friends and I must say it was superb. The black pudding starter was fabulous, but the lamb Henry main course was even better. Well done to one and all.

I have frequently visited here for a number of years, and the food and service has always been the best. However, we visited Sunday teatime. Something had changed. Even though the menu was still the same, the presentation was different. Has they changed the chef I wonder? The only criticism I would have is the menu has never changed. Some... More

Ate here with some business guests (9 people in total) on a Tuesday evening and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. The service was very attentive (without being pushy) and the quality of the food was excellent. The total bill was around £200 (no wine) so the prices were reasonable as well. I would definitely eat here... More
