  • star rating  I came here from a place down the road after waiting for service for over 30 minutes and it was such a better experience, you know like a restaurant/ eatery should be.

    Seated immediately. Order taken within ten minutes.

    Food arrived approximately 15 to 20 minutes laters and was delicious.

    I especially liked cheesy hash, a new addition to a full English breakfast I’ve not seen elsewhere.

    Busy place but demand is well managed by diligent and professional staff.

  • star rating  Real good service 👌 - Visited with a couple of friends, nice little place good cocktails . Food good fresh and very tasty and service excellent, I was served by a server with long brown hair & nose piercing very attentive and worked hard whilst the female co worker messed on her phone a little disappointing to see someone putting on there co worker maybe management should address this. Otherwise real good experience and will return

  • star rating  Brilliant food drinks and service  - Hashna and Libby were very kind and attentive, refilling our drinks quickly and making sure everything was okay for us.
    The food was absoloutley delicious, I went for the chicken basket and it was fantastic, great portion of chips and some lovely crispy chicken both seasoned perfectly, but my favorate part was the gravy, best I've ever had. I'll be coming again next time I'm in Manchester!

  • star rating  Had a lovely catch up with my friend at Fress - we added bottomless drinks to our brunch, a bargain at £15. We didn't have to ask for a refill as the lovely Ali was attentive and replenished our drinks in quick time and with a smile. A credit to the establishment. The strawberry Proseccos are to die for as was the steak and eggs. I would highly recommend

  • star rating  Stumbled across this little marvel, hungover and hungry. Drooled over the menu and the dishes being brought up from the kitchen and gave in to greed, ordering a full English breakfast each. Ohhh we were happy. The sourdough toast. The sausage patties. The cheesy potato hash....stunning and served with a smile, despite the waitresses being rushed off their feet, it's obviously a very popular spot. Will definitely be back the next time I'm in Manchester, might indulge in the bottomless option as the cocktails looked fantastic!
