 (Lancashire)·Dined on 15 April 2017

The resteraunt is upstairs which has recently been renovated to a really high standard . The food is good we ordered steaks which were vert nice the only gripe I had there was I asked for the steak to be medium well just slightly pink but it wasnt it was overkooked . The main complaint though was it being my husbands birthday when we arrived one of the waiters said at the end of the meal they were going to bring a small cake out with sparklers on which would have been really nice. But sadly no cake arrived. I was very disappointed because the resteraunt was not that busy so you really couldn't say they had an excuse just other than forgetting. Would I visit here again? Probably not

The Living Room is great in the evening if you are with a group of friends, we went at 9:30 on a Saturday night and although we were upstairs away from the bar it was still very loud, to be fair we knew what it would be like. Eaten at lunchtime many times which is more relaxed. The food was good and service alright, depends what you're looking for really. Good venue for reasonably priced food in a vibrant bar/restaurant.

The service from the moment we walked through the door up until we left was spot on! We went for my mums birthday and they really made a fuss of her, she loved it! I would definetly recommend this restaurant if you are after a pleasant meal in a beautifully decorated space!

 (Manchester)·Dined on 11 March 2017

We were sat basically on top of the speakers, my friends and I like music but if we were eating it wouldn't have been a good table chat on as we couldn't her each other and the seat actually vibrated!!!!
It was good to have table service but the girls asked us repeatedly what we wanted presumably because they couldn't hear us either!
I wouldn't eat there after this experience, it's a good bar for a drink but that table is terribly positioned with regards to the speaker.

Lovely elegant decor. Service friendly and efficient. Food was lovely. We were a party of 5 having a pre MENA meal. To enhance the ambiance there was s fabulous pianist/singer playing while we ate. We all chose burgers which were delicious. Would definitely return. Would be nice to have drinks at the very spacious and elegant bar downstairs.

I came in on Valentine's day with my partner, when I booked the table I was asked if I wanted the ala carte menu or the Valentine's day set menu; I chose the Valentine's set menu. When we arrived we were given the ala carte menu and not even the choice of the set menu. The tables were not set up for Valentines either. Anyway, the food was gorgeous, the staff were lovely (although they seemed a bit pre-occupied at times with setting up for other valentines tables). I just started to feel like we were a hindrance for dining whilst the staff were setting up. If I knew that I had my first Valentines booking at a certain time, I would make sure that all the tables were ready for that first arrival. Sorry for sounding super negative; I still had a nice time.

Great food and cocktails (as always), fast and efficient service from polite, attentive staff, Francesca in particular. We dined in the upstairs dining room and really enjoyed the pianist, however the music from the lower bar area was a little loud for the time of night 9 O'clock.

One minor criticism is the low height of the seats at our table. I am five foot five but had to sit at the edge of my seat to enjoy food and drinks, it did get a little uncomfortable at times. Other than that I definitely recommend the restaurant.

Food was awesome. Liked the redecoration and atmosphere was buzzing. Evening slightly spoiled by Piano singer screeching far too loudly to the extent that you couldn't hear the waitress or the person next to you. Someone playing a Grand piano adds to the occasion but no need for the singer to be so loud - turn the microphone down and focus on the piano playing rather than average singing.

Ive been going to the Living room for years, but recently they have updated the interior and upstairs area. It is very pleasant and the food is far better than what they charge. Would 100% recommend to anyone.

Service started of half arsed but once the girl took over my table she restored my faith. Staff finish getting ready in full view of customers and stand and drink. I know it's not upper class but in my opinion there's a minimum standard all restaurants should follow. Food was good, and that's what I went for.
