Sadly due to enforced restrictions our reservation was cancelled however we opted for a takeaway. Seafood Tapas for 5 adults, we did wonder if the contents would be enough but there was plenty & the food was delicious, I would definitely recommend & we will be making our reservation just as soon as we can to dine in for the full experience.

Another great meal. I would recommend to anyone but especially people who already avoid gluten and dairy. So nice to go out and not worry about what I can/can’t eat. My husband is normally really fussy but has loved ever meal we have had here. Can’t wait for the next time.

Fourth visit. Fantastic dinner, really thoughtful, beautiful dishes and excellent service. The fish course was particularly good, so well cooked. The wine top up service is a great idea, though dangerous... Food is most definitely the coolest restaurant in Leigh. The chefs know their stuff and the atmosphere is perfect. Thankyou!

Heard so much about the restaurant and was very excited about going. We had an amazing meal and evening (wow the 3 hours went very quick). We had the wine pairing and really enjoyed that experience too. Lovely, friendly and helpful staff too. Also liked the idea that everyone in the restaurant was having the same meal and experoence at the same time. Thanks everyone.
