The restaurant itself is situated in a rural setting on the outskirts of Wrighington. Offers a large menu selection, as well as set meals. Very old school, quaint and traditional Old English decor. Very friendly waiting staff, and good value for money. Ample car parking.

We had pre-ordered our food from the lunch menu serving 3 courses. The staff were very efficient, bringing drinks to our table before eating, attentive during the meal. The food was very good, well presented and hot. Good value for money.

Response from HighMoorRestaurant | Property representative |
Hello, I am sorry we don't have a private dining area, or a secluded table that fits 6. We have a table to the side of the restaurant but that seats 10-15 people, so wouldn't be suitable for 6. Kind regards
