Diners will find a great choice of modern takes on traditional British favourites and global dishes. All made with the best of ingredients most of which can be purchased in the deli, whether they’re popping in for breakfast, lunch or a three-course evening meal.

Critics Review
Review by Manchester Confidential's Angie Sammons
15/20
Lancashire hotpot is soothing food at its best; in this version, dices of lamb, stewed leek and carrot hide under a hat of crispy, golden potato. There is the right amount of stock: Too much and it would swim, too little and it would dry the meat which has endured a long and slow braise to take on all the flavours of the vegetables. Puddings, and the hot chocolate brownie is an excellent sliver of light sponge loveliness, with a deep cocoa content. Custard, cream or ice cream? I chose the latter which was the perfect foil.

Hot plates would have made the meal perfect as the food went cold too quickly.

We were very disappointed in our Mother’s Day Breakfast. The food was careless and though some was of good quality it felt rushed. The salmon portion with the scrambled egg was disgustingly small. Having had to wait for our table we felt cramped and crammed in. Very poor.

Waited a little while for our coffees but manager very kindly waived the charge due to our wait. Lovely gesture. Food was excellent and staff were amazing in a very busy service. Will definitely visit again and soon.

So normally I can never find any fault. But the Restaurant was very very busy indeed. Normally I find that your portions are more than adequate for lunch. However both my Wife's and Daughters pieces of fish (They chose Fish & Chips) were like tiddlers, way too small compared to usual. The chips are still far too big and not enough of them. As I say I didn't choose that, I had Croque Monsieur which was lovely and entirely adequate for me. But never mind the glorious crumble had by all saved the day!

Another great dining experience - service was exemplary, as always. My family were very impressed. The cauliflower and leek risotto was especially good.
