If you decide to eat here, be prepared to wait a VERY long time. My friend and I booked a table last Saturday for lunch. I ordered mushroom burger and chips and my friend ordered Spanish potatoes. There were only six other people in the...More

Excellent food! The waiters talk to you and I would give it a 10/10! I liked the potatoes, the eggs, the mushrooms, and all kinds of different food! It was the best breakfast ever. 😋More

We called again yesterday for lunch. We don't come into Wigan often during the day and really wish that this fabulous place was nearer . Fantastic dishes: lentil curry, Chinese fritters, side salads, Black Forest sundaes. All amazing. We booked for the cookery course too....More

Salads exceptional, The rest- hmmmmmmmm. The garden outside is lovely, considering it backs onto the bus station- it feels a nice little haven. A few little tweeks- This could be superb

Lovely atmosphere - very cosy - great menu choice. Booking is essential for the evening. Very relaxed and has a lovely little garden which is delightful in the Summer.

Perfect night as ever. The menu was lovely for a set Valentine's meal. Herby tomato soup to start, that zinged with flavour (husband had a vegetable and ginger soup that he loved) The soup was served in china teacups - quirky and romantic, and the...More

During the day you can use car parks such as Tge Galleries or the Bus Station which are close. After 6.39 you can park on this street. It's always best to book for an evening visit. Regards, Sue
