Visited last Saturday night, we had garlic mushrooms and scallops to start and then fillet steak for main course. The fillet was amazing and is cooked consistently every time we visit. The chef is a credit to you! Staff friendly as always. We'll be back! 😄

We had our Valentines dinner there. The food and service were very good. As most restaurants do they made a slightly larger profit on the bottle of red wine.....

Went with my wife and two friends, The food, whilst not cheap, was beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. My lamb was very tender and succulent, following the potted mushrooms very satisfactorily. Will definitely go again.

First visit to Ainsdale, and came across this little gem. Had Surf and turf and have to say it was fantastic. Service here was professional, friendly and a credit to their establishment. Highly recommended.

Popped in for a snack and just had two starters - Southport shrimps and goats cheese tart, with a fresh orange juice. All perfect. Will go back for a main meal.

I come here often for birthdays and meals out and I love it. The pizza is especially delicious and the staff are always so friendly.

This is our local restaurant which we have been going to for many years now and the standard of food and service is consistently high. If like me, you enjoy prawns + pasta dishes then, in my opinion, there is nowhere better to go.
