Good selection of food and drinks. Very pleasant staff, interacted with my kids brilliantly. We ordered 2 full English breakfasts, they were very greasy but if you like a good old fashioned FRY up then it's not bad. Good British greasy spoon cafe.

Been twice to this establishment now, once for breakfast and today for dinner. Advertised as a " fully licensed cafe" it's a bit different, staff well presented and polite decorated well with an odd door or to, you need to look for them. Prices are good and the food is fantastic can't really fault what this family of three have... More

I'm not sure how anyone could have a bad word to say about this place. I live local and I go in on a regular basis and have never had a problem. Great staff, a great selection of different foods and reasonably priced. It's filled with regulars. The majority of the reviews are 5 rated for a reason. We can't... More

I'm not usually one to complain but I could not share this review soon enough! We visited this cafe for lunch on Boxing Day bank holiday and were surprised by the amount of staff they had working there. The decor is awful. The restaurant was quiet so we were easily able to find a table and as soon as we... More

Lets be straight, this is a cafe and not a posh restaurant, the welcome was bright and breezy when we entered on a rainy day. Tables were limited as they were busy and the hard working staff were constantly rushing around, but all smiling and acknowledged customers making warm short conversation when possible. Being in Wigan we went for the... More

I wish I'd found this little chippy years ago, the food quality is always consistently high (eat in or takweaway) and the staff are friendly. The prices are reasonable and the portions generous. I only wish it was open in evenings too!
