I cannot explain the level of service received from this amazing restaurant. At such short notice for a small wedding, Ellen went above and beyond to make the run up and the day run so smoothly and nothing was ever to much trouble. The day was just perfect, the food was perfect and the staff were exceptional. Thank you so much and looking forward to our next meal here.

Lovely food but only one vegan dish on the entire menu (inc starters and dessert). Everyone else had a starter and dessert but there wasn't anything for me unfortunately. My main dish was nice but expensive. I wasn't pleased with the mandatory service charge.

We were never offered water for the table. We were asked what we wanted to drink after only just sitting down and not having time to look at the wine menu. The starters were good but the mains were very poor. The cod casserole was not wholesome but very wishy-washy. As for the cheese and onion pie? Over baked so the pastry was very dry and the filling was virtually non existent. I had a pint of beer and when the waitress took the empty glass away I wasn't asked if I'd like another one !! Too top it the bill includes a 10% service charge which you're obliged to pay regardless of whether or not you're happy with the service . It should be upto customer discretion whether they pay a tip or service charge. Not an obligation. I've been coming here for a good few years having previously going to Nutters in Norden. The food and service standards there were far superior there and a couple of years ago were very good at the Bird at Birtle. However, we've visited 3 times this year and each time has got increasingly disappointing. I'm afraid we won't be returning again which is a real shame cos the place itself is really pleasant. The food and service? No

Fantastic place, excellent food and brilliant staff. Good portion size and spectacular flavours. Went out for a birthday dinner with friends and family. We had a 3 course dinner with a bottle of wine and coffee with dessert. Highly recommended

Food here is really lovely. It is pub food, but more of a fancy style. The place is owned by Andrew nutter who is a well known chef in the area, so you know the quality of the place. Family loves to go here for special meals out as a treat. Can set you back a few Bob, but it's worth a visit. You can go for just drinks downstairs and it's open late then (don't go off the open hours on the Google listing)
