I was looking for somewhere to take my uncle for lunch and came across Corner House on the Onion Ring website. So we decided to try it.
What an excellent meal we had with prompt, attentive service. From to 81 year old uncle to my 19 year old son, all enjoyed the meal. We'll definitely visit again.
excellent been 3x now and it is my favorite restaurant. not 1 fault with any of the food i have chosen and the environment you are in is so comfortable and the staff are really friendly and a pleasure to talk to always make us smile and feel welcome. Highly recommended.
Really nice food. Our waitress Sharon really looked after us
just had sunday roast very nice good selection of beers want to go back to try cheese pie
excellent service, excellent food, excellent staff!!
not much more to be said,
Visited Gallimores restaurant last night for a retirement party, Fri 29th June, there were about 16 of us to sample the lovely, tasty food as always served at your Wigan restaurant, Mr Howard Gallimore friendly as ever. we enjoyed every minute of our stay there with staff as helpful as they could be, well done again to Gallimores x
Went in expecting the usual limited pub fare and was delightedly surprised by the quality and variety of the menu. Creative and delicious food in a warm and comfortable environment. Wish we could transport it to that USA!
amazing me and my kids have been going for over 3 years we know all the staff now there so friendly and so welcoming think we will be there for easter .
Best food,best service,best take-away by far
Myself and 6 friends came to Francos Mad Friday (23rd Dec) for a girly xmas get-together and what a treat it was! The food was superb, the atmosphere electric and the staff were friendly and helpful. My tuna salad started was so tasty, if a little too large, but if thats the only negative I can think of then I am happy to say so! The live artist was also a very nice touch with a mix of music to suite all tastes which ended our meal perfectly. Thanks Franco and all the staff. Will be coming back in no time!
My friend and I visited gallimores the week before xmas for lunch. we chose off the 2 courses for £8.95 menu. I can honestly say its one of the best meals I have ever tasted and the price was incredible! FANTASTIC
we go to gallies regularly i cant find any faults great food good prices best staff in wigan well done howard.
Went yesterday (Sunday) me and the wife had the Sunday special - £8.95 for two courses. Absolutely fantastic - price of drinks great as well - food and service wonderful. Definately go again - bring friends as well.
We have tried many Indian Restaurants over the years and Amans tops the lot. Excellent service, Excellent Menu and most important Excellent Food.
I have been a regular at Amans for 5 years now. Without fail the food and service always deliver and I always leave feeling satisfied. My benchmark for a delicious, well seviced Indian meal is Amans.
Went with the family last Sunday really good afternoon had the carvery and it was really enjoyable and a bargain for £5 and £3.50 for the kids would definitely recommend!!
We visit Amans twice a Month and the food and service is excellent. I recommend the Lamb Vindaloo, the best I have ever had!!
We visit Gallimore's regularly and always find both food & atmosphere of an excellent standard, and great value for money. Howard & staff always give you the warmest welcome and special mention must go to chef Pepe and his staff. We have never failed to recommend this restaurant to family and friends.
Fantastic restaurant with excellent food and staff. Visited the restaurant on the mediterranean night for Wigan food and drink festival were we were greeted by friendly faces and served the most excellent paella and lamb kleftiko!
At last - an excellent Italian restaurant in Ashton in Makerfield! We have visited several times and can vouch for the quality of the pasta dishes and pizza. Pasquale ensures that his staff maintain his own high standards, and makes sure every diner is greeted warmly and kept happy with good service, food and reasonable prices - including the wine!
My husband and i had a meal here last night, it was the first time we had been and we were amazed at the whole thing. We were welcomed warmly by Jeanne the owner,our table n the surroundings had a lovely ambience,the service from Jeannes staff was impecable and the food n wine was top. We will deffo be back and recommend The Stables to all.
Thank you so much for the wonderful service we received last night. the food was great and we had a perfect evening
Just wanted to extend our thanks to you for the fabulous time we had on Friday for our christmas party. A good time was had by all and thank you so much for your generous hospitality and attentiveness to us. we'll be back next year !
Thank you so much for making our evening so special.
Thank you so much for being wonderful hosts & providing fabulous food for Elliots christening, we all had a wonderful day.
Congratulations to the best new business in Wigan, you worked hard, pulled together in difficult times well done
Many thanks for helping to make my birthday special, great venue, great food, great service. Best wishes for the future.
Definitely the best Indian restaurant in the Northwest. Sam is a great host and would recomend to anyone.
Absolutely amazing, read a review in the MEN about this restaurant so thought we'd give it a go. All I can say is wow, lovely ambience, you'd never think you were in Wigan. The food was very well presented and the taste matched. The service was second to none. personal but not intrusive.
Why visit the big chains when you have absolute gems like this on your backdoor.
If only every restaurant put the effort and passion in to what the do as much as this place does. Highly recommended
We ate at Gallimores on Sat 6th Nov 2010 and found that all the owner and all the staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome. The food was great we rang up 3 days before and asked if we could have oysters and they got them for us I will be going back and you should too. Regards Darren
16 of us went here last Thursday for my birthday celebration, we had an excellent evening. Fantastic food and service, nothing was too much trouble, we all had a free glass of wine and a complimentary drink at the end of the evening, will definitely go back.
Love the food! The only fault I find is the canteen style - there are no tablecloths!
This place is definitely the best Indian in the area. We went to the new Indian opposite St Marys in Lowton last week and went to Amans this week which gave us a good comparision. The winner was Amans. Service, price and food all ahead in my book. Also the ambience is so much better at Amans.
We have dined here several time over the last year and have never been let down by the 'no problem' attitude of the staff and the chef.
I think I must have changed four dishes to my liking and the staff are always willing to put it to the chef to come up with a great result.
I would highly recommend this to any unsure to die hard curry fan.
For those who love 'hot' curries, they have a dish on board that will make you think twice of ordering it again.
It's an all round great venue.
Always excellent food, wonderful ambience and the staff always excel. Friendly owners who are always on hand with helpful advice and who have a real passion to ensure everyone has a fantastic evening. They have more than raised the bar in terms of fine dining in central Wigan.
Excellent service and the food is out of this planet so tasty will come back from London to eat here again.
Myself and 2 friends came last night, for one of our birthdays. I had never heard of the Stables Brasserie prior to coming. I was absolutely amazed by the food quality, presentation, and how hot food was on arrival. I have to say this is by far the best food i have tasted in a very very long time. There as so few restaraunts now, which actually care about food presentation and quality, and i want to sincereley thankyou, for not being one of those restaraunts. I will definately be recommending you to all friends and family, and will be returning regularly with my husband. Absolutely fantastic. Like i said i give 10/10 for food, quality, presentation and service! Well Done!!!! xxxxx
The Stables is without doubt the best restaraunt in Wigan !! David and Jeanne are excellent hosts who add the final touch to a great evening. The food is always of a very high standard and the atmosphere is always welcoming as well as relaxing. We would recommend The Stables to anyone !!! Exactly what Wigan needs !!!!
We've taken friends several times and always received a warm welcome and good service. The food is always excellent and we always have a great night out.
The best Indian in the north west, its great. Thanks Sam
Excellent meal as always!!!!!!!!!!! we will be back !!!!!!!!!!!
Just been for Easter lunch.Lovely meal, pleasant and helpful staff,wonderful dining room and setting.Only downfall--no disabled toilet facilities.My wheelchair user companion(90 year old mother)had to wait until we were home! Not ideal.Please address this for next time---would be 10 out of 10 if this was resolved.
I love this restaurant. The food is fabulous, the staff and very friendly and they are good with the kids. I am working my way through the menu and have never been disappointed!
as much as the steak was good on the hot rock it wont be far away before someone burns there self as it was a bit intimidating sat there with a hot volcanic slate in between your chips and your veg
The Wayfarer had a really helpful attitude. The Pub atmosphere was really chilled. The food was perfectly cooked and the flavors were really unique. It is nice to get real ale with food too.
Definitely the best in the area
Thanks for a really great night on new years eve hope you do it again in 2011, our heads !!!!!!!
Excellent food, Excellent value for money, Me and my family have been regulars since Amans opened and would not go anywhere else for an Indian meal. Sam and his staff are very friendly and provide an excellent service. Would have no hesitation to recommend to everyone including families.
Took my Mum for lunch last Thursday, I haven't been for years and it was just as I remembered fantastic service,beautiful surroundings and great food.
I have been back to the Chinese Buffet 4 times now, both evening and lunch and find the surroundings and atmosphere smart yet relaxed and the food always fresh, hot and delicious. The only fault I could find was the rather too intrusive music.
Excellent service with great food. Very clean restaurant with friendly staff.
We have visited a couple of times & WILL be going back regularly. Food is excellent the service you receive from the owners or staff is like no where else a very relaxing place to be with friends of family.
Excellent food and service is first class. My wife and I will not have an Indian meal anywhere else. It's a very relaxing and welcoming restaurant.
A lovely little restaurant in Wigan with excellent food and service.The Tuesday night offer is great value but I would would gladly pay full price for such quality.
Nice place, very good service, and excellent value.
We met at the Chinese Buffet to celebrate a mates birthday party and we all had a brill time. The waiters and waitresses were so friendly. There was a lot (I mean a lot) of food choice and it was all freshly prepared. The deco is very modern and airy. I would definitely recommend it! Wendy
excellent food and service was so good that we are now regulars. The staff are really friendly and are great when we take the kids.We never get rushed and i can guarantee i will not dine elsewhere for a curry. Would recommend to everyone and also families.
I have been to a lot of buffets and this is by far the best. The food, service and atmosphere is brill.
excellent Manager, excellent service, excellent food, - can't go wrong!!
We have friends who live in Wigan and we met them at the Chinese Buffet last night.
The food and service was exceptional and the variety of dishes vast.
A great experience and we will definitely return.
excellent food lovely place well looked after by the owners
seven of us had our Christmas dinner here on Christmas day at £60 a head and it was worth every penny. The owner of gallimores was attentive and made sure we wanted for nothing the staff were polite and very efficient, nothing was to much trouble, Most importantly the food was second to none, all in all a most pleasurable Christmas day was had by all. We will be back asap
Great food, friendly atmosphere, best selection of wines and spirits... Simply the best... :-)
We were looking for somewhere as a halfway point to meet some friends and find this hotel restaurant on Onionring. We sent on a Saturday night and it was busy but our booked table was ready and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The menu had a good choice and the food was good, the men had steak and the ladies fish. All in all we had a good evening. A good choice considering we did not know the area at all.
we went to the Spice Lounge and had a very tasty meal on 24/11/07
I found The Spice Lounge when organising my brothers Stag Do. First we went to the 3 sisters karting down the road in Ashton-in-Makerfield,so 19 hungry lads needed somewhere to go after the racing. I found The Spice Lounge through Google and was pleased to see that they had their own website with a Menu download. Great pictures on the site too that are excactly what you see when you arrive.
So what was our exerience.
We went on the 27/8/07 which was Aug bank holiday Monday.
I rang the restaurant around lunchtime and was very pleased with the person I spoke too, Very helpful and also advised where to park, because we've never been into Wigan before.
We had a group of 19 lads and they accomodated us easily.
The website says Bring Your Own Wine as it is not a licensed premises which suited us down to the ground, i asked if we could bring Stella and it was fine.
We all found the restaurant spotlessly clean and a superb contempary decor. I noticed the open kitchen which i think is always a good sign.
The service was bang on, really nice lads. and it cant be easy trying to get 19 orders on the table at similar times but they did really well.
The Menu is excellent, fantastic choices, I loved the Chat section(starters) great variety,I went for the Chicken Chat and a Chicken Rogan Josh with a Nann. Curry prices start from 6.95 for what i had upto around 8.95 for the chefs specials.
We all found the quality of the food first class and very well prepared, I can't comment on every dish but mine was excellent.
There was only one Bad Point (if you can call it bad) about our meal: Some lads ordered Lamb Rogan Josh, but they'd run out of Lamb. And they did not have anymore Plain Nann's left. It was no big deal to any of us really and was quite happy to have the Chicken Rogan and Garlic Nann instead.
What was important was it seemed a big deal to the restaurant and they could not apologise enough and knocked about £8 off our bill, which meant we got a free Curry and Nann.
Like i said the service is awesome.
All in all a fantastic Indian Restaurant with Superb modern decor, top notch service, a great inexpensive menu and excellent food.
Everybody really enjoyed their time at The Spice Lounge and would deffinatly return.
It gets 10/10 from me and 18 others lads!
You wont be dissapointed.
first time there - but friends been before,
Excellent food, great service, different menu not standard indian fare, nice clean place - off the beaten track but worth finding
Absolutely brilliant! Very friendly service and fantastic food!
I had a fantastic meal on Saturday night with all of my friends for my 21st Birthday! The food was delicious and the service unfaultable! I asolutely love the Spice Lounge and I will be returning in the near future. I would reccomend this lovely restaurant to anyone. Thank you so much. Hayley x
i dont know where to start we first visited around 18 months ago when they first opened their doors and was taken aback by the cool and stylish decor and liked the open kitchen but that was nothing compared to what was instore for when we ate there the food is without doubt the finest in the region better than a lot on the curry mile (rusholme machester) i have nothing but praise and respect for all at the spice lounge its worth a visit by anyone and i can highly recommend the machurian fish its outstanding all in all the spice lounge is number 1 ! ! !.....
the food waz excellent and the service was very good aswell. the waiters were very efficiant and pleasant. i always make time to return here when i am visiting Wigan .
To all of the lovers of Indian cuisine in Wigan -the Spice Lounge awaits! Show your support and sample the delights it has to offer!
Really great place, lovely restaurant, great food and friendly service! :-)
excellent range o food on the menu, the food is tremendous, really clean, great service best indian around
We have eaten in many of the best restaurants all over the country and even some worldwide. We challenge anyone to find better food and better service than that found in the spice lounge. Our favourite meal is chicken akabari which we have madras strength.
I felt that the spice lounge was of a great standing and i've just booked in there again!
Great food , nice atmosphere ,great value . The best around by far.
excellent food,prepared from the open viewed kitchen. the staff are very helpful and courteous.
the needs of special needs customers have been thought about in regards wheel chair access.
good luck for the future.

What can I say about this place. Good food, warm and friendly staff and lovely surroundings. I would really recommend this restaurant.
I think the spice lounge is fabulous it is very tasty even though they don't give free food to relatives. It is a very nice restaurant.
The Spice Lounge is just one of the best Indian Restaurants I have ever eaten at -I absolutely love it!! The Decor is inviting and classy and the food is second to none. Also, the bonus of being able to bring your own alcohol makes a visit to this restaurant a real treat. I would heartily recommend it to anyone.
what can we say,the decor was fabulous very contemporary and relaxing,the background music was well in keeping with the theme.the service was superb very polite helpful and unrushed and last but by no means least the food a superb selection of dishes taste and presentation was superb.
Excellent food, excellent venue. At last a quality Indian restaurant in Wigan. Highly recommended!!
