Lonely Planet review

The ambience is refined without being stuffy; the service is relaxed but spot on; and the food is divine – this is as good a restaurant as you'll find anywhere in the northwest. The fillet steak in peppercorn sauce (£21.50) is to die for; the second time we visit­ed we opted for the pan-fried Goosnargh duck with a cranberry and ginger compote (£15.95). We'll be back. And back again.
