FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT
We give people reasons to feel good and lots of them. We make people feel welcome so they keep coming back for more and bringing their family with them. It's that kind of place – a go-to for good vibes. This is one happy place. The kids can be kids. The adults can be kids (if they want to). Everyone can relax. We’re here all day keeping it carefree, upbeat, affordable and good fun. That’s because nothing’s too much trouble. Service comes straight from the heart. Then there’s what’s on the menu. It’s full of flavour, there’s lots of choice, and the prices feel good too.

About the area
Discover Greater Manchester
The Greater Manchester conurbation incorporates the towns of Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport and Wigan, and has the vibrant city of Manchester as its administrative headquarters.
Manchester was founded in Roman times, and developed during the 17th century as a textile town, becoming the centre of the English cotton industry. Its magnificent Victorian Gothic public buildings are reminders of Manchester’s prosperous heyday. The Manchester Ship Canal was completed in 1894, linking the Mersey with the sea and bringing ocean-going vessels into Manchester, enabling the city to compete with its rival, Liverpool.
The city of Manchester today is alive with a vibrant youth culture (it has England’s largest student population), a flourishing club scene, and a whole range of multi-cultural festivals and events. To take in the atmosphere, take a stroll around one of Britain’s largest Chinatowns, or wander down to Rusholme to take in the tempting aromas of curry houses and browse among the sari shops, Asian grocers and Indian sweet shops. The city is also home to the world’s longest-running soap opera – Coronation Street.
