Latest review:

This restaurant has lovely venue and well presented food, but I don’t feel the service or the environment is up to the Michelin starred standard. The service was really slow but quite chaotic. The staff were not well trained although they were polite. There was only one person who was wine knowledgeable which was fine. The rest of staff didn’t have sufficient knowledge of the food, they just came and name the ingredients and left straight away. More importantly they were not attentive and one staff collected my friend’s plant before she even finished her food. We had to ask him to stop. The environment, it was just way too loud. There was a particular loud table, that the table next to them had to leave because of them. It would be fine if this was just a normal restaurant, but for fine dining, especially if this is Michelin starred, the whole combination just seemed very poor. Food was great, although not so creative. Took a video shot and thought it’s gonna be some kind of molecular gastronomy experience but nothing special. It could be that we just happened to bump into a busy night but I personally feel that service and environment are particularly important for this level of dining. I liked the food but I don’t feel I want to go back.

Our Review of Simpsons (February 2017)

After a super holiday in Devon, I was looking for somewhere to stop for lunch on the way back to the North West. Having held a star from our precious tyre munching inspectors for over fifteen years, and also being renowned as a child friendly venue, Simpsons seemed like a sensible choice. It was here I ventured for Friday lunch with my wife and young daughter....
