Myself and my boyfriend fancied a healthy meal and I’d heard great things about Vigour so thought we would give it a try! From walking through the door we were greeted by a lovely guy who was really helpful and cleared a table for us immediately (even with a broken arm!) he brought us menus and informed us of the specials.as we sat and waited for our meals, each meal that was carried to other customers we hoped was ours! The meals looked that amazing!! Our breakfast came, and again it looked amazing and tasted even better. I would definitely recommend to everyone! Staff were friendly and efficient, food was 10/10 and the environment was chilled and comfortable. Will definitely be returning as there is so much on the menu we still want to try! Thank you, all in all Amazing service.

Found by chance. Good choice of menu. Lovely staff. Ordered the salmon & chilli prawns both cooked to perfection & beautifully presented. Sides & sauces been spoilt for choice. Finished with a hot chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream worthy of been served in any fine dining restaurant & very reasonably priced. Just visiting the area bit would definitely come back.!

We decided to order a take away lunch from vigour on Saturday as they had reopened this weekend. We were not disappointed! We rang in our order at about 1.40pm not realising they opened at 2pm, and the guy on the phone was really friendly - he took our order and said we can choose our pick up time (as we wanted to collect) and we chose asap, and so collected at 2.10pm! My partner and I both ordered a crispy salt and pepper chicken wrap, which comes with fries. We also had halloumi bites, and a can of Diet Coke each. We were asked if we wanted normal fries or sweet potato fries and we both sweet potato fries. Them even accommodated our requests with the order too when I requested normal mayo not curry mayo with one of the wraps. Lots of choice on the menu and great portion sizes! We turned up, order was there ready. The owner jumped to help us with a speedy service. Paid by Contactless payment and on our way. Food was great with a wide selection on their menu (available to view online) service was fab & very safe given the covid19 pandemic and the fact they’d only opened their take away service that weekend! Healthier alternative and supporting local! Please call vigour direct (number advertised on their website and social media) to place your order, as this would support this amazing local business more, as it would avoid the percentage that the take away service provider (ie: just eat/deliveroo etc) would take. Keep up the good work guys! We’ll defo be placing another order soon!

Where do I start!? First of all the girls customer service skills behind the counter was terrible, she was snotty and rude. When we placed the order we was told it would be ready for collection within 15-20 minutes and was kept stood waiting for an extra 25 mins ontop of this with no apology! As we was leaving she forgot to put in the pepercorn side sauce to so had to shout us back, then when we actually got home and seen the small sized portion which was £11.45 (picture is attached) it was 3 very small thin pieces of steak I was gobsmacked! This was also very cold and we only drove a few minutes up the road. Overall I spent £37.00 and that was with 20% discount for collection and what a complete waste of money that was I will not be returning and I certainly do not reccomend it!

We were out as a group of four on a Monday and was looking for a place that would cater to all our needs. We found Vigour after a quick look online and decided to give it a go. The restauraunt itself is really well laid out, gorgeous wooden benches, well lit and roomy. We were seated and our server went through the menu with us. I asked what vegan options there were and he very helpfully went through them all and explained how certain dishes could be adapted. We each went for a different dish, salmon for one, chicken (with a choice of grilled or crispy), steak and cauliflower bites for me. Everything came out at the same time and was cooked to perfection. My partner asked for his steak medium/rare, which in our experience hasn't gone well, but it was seared, sliced and salted exactly as he wanted. Our server was helpful and attentive throughout, but not overbearing, and all the staff seemed friendly and happy to help. The kitchen, seating and toilets were all sparkling clean and the place itself has a really good vibe. Will definitley be going back. We had four mains, three alcoholic drinks and a coffee which came to around £60 which was a more than reasonable price for the amount of food we got.

i had a takeaway so only popped in for a minute but the place seemed nice, the staff was lovely. I ordered the chargrilled s+p chicken, pesto pasta and asian tenderstems. the chicken was basically some breaded chicken goujons with no s+p seasoning on it, the asian tenderstems I presumed would have chilli on them they didnt so not sure whey they just wouldnt just call them tenderstems and the pasta was nice. it was all cooked beautifully, the portion size was perfect and it was presented really well. I only ordered the one meal as the rest of my family wanted a Mcdonalds so im surprised they got it 2/3 wrong.

Dining at Vigour is an experience I would recommend with great confidence. Each time I have visited I have experienced an ambiance that is welcoming and inviting, amazing menu options , food and service. Staff are extremely knowledgeable, super friendly and make great recommendations which shows a thorough understanding of their menu and a genuine interest in helping provide customers with great service. It often feels difficult to find ‘healthy’ food options without taste being compromised but Vigour kitchen provides an excellent solution to this problem.

If you’re looking for good wholesome food at the end of a busy day, in a place with a relaxed vibe, this is the place to come. This is the first time I have been to Vigour, but definitely not the last. Helen our waitress was great, she is helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for her. Helen explained how the menu worked, plus after listening to what my palette is like she gave good suggestions and recommendations. Everything ordered was cooked beautifully, not to mention fabulous flavours and plenty of it too. Dessert was yummy… If you enjoy chocolate I highly recommend the chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream 😋 The prices are also very good, they are realistic with something on the menu to suit any taste and your pocket too. Overall, a great meal and experience. Thanks guys and I look forward to my next visit.

Went here mid week for the first time and we were certainly not dissapointed. The server fully explained the menu options to us and we opted for the small plates menu. The restaurant was very busy and we were told up front there could be a bit of a wait for food, we were then given a small dish of Halloumi bites to tide us over. Dishes arrived the seared flat iron steak whilst very tasty was a little to rare for our tastes but still cleared the plate, the VFC Chicken was very very tasty with a very spicy side, then tried salt baked beetroot and marinated tuna, both dishes were excellent with very tasty sides and presentation was perfect. If you have a large appetite you will probably need more dishes but this was just right portions for us. Will dine here again no problem , might even try the brunch or a burger next time. The only dissapointment was that we have not dined here earlier. Top Marks for a great experience , food and service all at a reasonable price.

Vigour has a wide selection of excellent food choice .The portions are really good value and the attentive service is second to none. We have been coming to Vigour for quite some time and found that whatever time of day their food fits the occasion I wish this standard could be found in other North West cities . Sebastian Ross

So so so glad Vigour are back. The best eatery in St Helens (and beyond) and we almost lost it. Great to see this place back...food is always five star, service too...you pay slightly more in St Helens dollars (but less than the big cities) but you get a lot more back. Love it

I had the pleasure of enjoying the amazing food, service and atmosphere. During this difficult time we were uncertain whether to go out and enjoy ourselves, or stay home, but chose to come to Vigour and enjoy the Prosecco deal (5 small plates and unlimited Prosecco for 1.5 hours). Honestly, this was one of the best experiences I’ve had for a while. The food was outstanding! Antonia- thank you for making this a night to remember. In today’s society, it can be daunting and unnerving but this was not the case at Vigour. There was no pressure or awkwardness to eat and leave. Thank you ☺️

Whilst out shopping decided to try this place for the first time. Outside it doesn’t look much with bench seats inside. It is a choice of small plates tapas style or select a meal which you choose the separate components or there are a few set choices. There is a delay as the food is cooked to order but it is worth the wait everything was very tasty. Oh and the staff were excellent. The value is good and the place is definitely worth a visit.

Started so well but died a death, ordered drinks, starter and main. Starter come and was excellent (halloumi bites). No drinks till I asked could we have them! The mains came after the chef had touched the meat and licked his fingers and the waitress had tried a few chips. If she had tried the chicken she would of realised it was like MDF. If she had tried the gravy she would of known it was stone cold. The prices were very reasonable but would not recommend.
