Popped in here for a scone and tea on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Seated ourselves on the comfy chairs near the door. No staff around but I think you're supposed to be seated by them. Acquired a menu off another table. Staff appeared and let us swap a tea for a coffee with the cream tea order. Price was about... More

A friendly welcome, followed by friendly efficient service, with numerous checks by a number of staff that all was well. It was! Hotpot and merlot hit the spot. The accompanying vegetables were plentiful, and properlyprepared. The furnishing and ambience were comfortable and pleasingly understated. The coffee was excellent.

Came last Thursday evening our first visit and enjoyed it thoroughly. Nice friendly welcome and given choice as to where we sat. Whilst it was not overly busy it still had a nice feel/atmosphere which had a positive impact on our evening.

What a lovely place, the meet and greet was excellent and the service by Jamie was brilliant. We ordered the fillet steaks which just melted in the mouths we both didn't want the food plate to empty. Will definitely be back to try the Sunday roast and other foods on the menu. It's a must visit to anyone in Manchester... More
