Didn't know this place existed! Old friend wanting a catch up suggested it. Food was lovely. Two of our party had the turkey xmas dinner, one had chili and i had the fish pie. Really nice and decent portions. Will definitely go back as the view over the Mersey is lovely. Well recommended

Home cooked good food perfect for any occasion. The menu is vast with plenty to choose from. There's something for everyone. Don't let the area put you off it's worth the trip.

You cannot fault the quality of food for the money, the selection of real ales (my last visit they had Liverpool Organic, Trapper's Hat and HMS Conway) or the genuine niceness of the staff.

Visited here for lunch today, as have heard it has a great reputation. Love the look of the place, loved the food, but it was way too cold. Some people were leaving because of it. I disappointed because I wanted to like it so much. The staff knew it was cold, said they couldn't light the fire... How about heaters... More

Visited by recommendation. Terrific conversion of an old pub. Super menu with specialised evening menu board and very sensible prices. Especially good value for over 60's Smaller portions with a great choice and very sensible price Three courses £10.95.

Finally got around to trying this restaurant and VERY pleasantly surprised. Good food, good (friendly) service, good sized portions and reasonably priced. What more do you want?

Thank CliveJohnB
