Outside dining doesn’t come much more welcome than during this absurdly hot weather, so the opportunity to eat al fresco at this longstanding Manchester restaurant wasn’t to be turned down. And, indeed, it was a very pleasant experience to be seated in the comfy seats enjoying good food. The yellowfin tuna starter was good, and the chicken fillet main course was also good. The lemon sole also got a good review, although their popular Dover sole was, unfortunately, not on the menu. The piece de resistance here is always the Malteser ice-cream which, again, did not disappoint. The service here was good too, with our waiter getting extra brownie points for checking whether we wanted the coffees before, with or after our desserts - a trick that many places get wrong. The menu isn’t as wide as it once was here, which is a pity, and they no longer do the excellent fries that they once did, but there’s a reason why this place has been here for so long - namely, that it serves good food at reasonable prices and well.
