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.

A nice relaxed atmosphere. Our firt visit since the refurbishment and what a difference it has made. We've been for lunch three time in six weeks! Food is very good, quick and freash. Service is very good and pleasant. Cost for 2 course lunch is £13.95 which represents excellent value. More than happy to revisit here.

Had dinner with my wife last night.We were not disappointed at the quality of the meal or the level of service. Baked oysters for starters followed by rack of lamb and an assiette of desserts. Just enough of each course. The restaurant was packed and you could easily understand why. Many thanks to all the staff who made it a... More
