We have been here a few times and it’s great. It’s right by the ship canal and it’s nice to walk around celeb spotting. Good parking, plenty of food and drink establishments to choose from.

Good choice of restaurants and a great bar in the dockyard. Great views of salford quays. We only live 5 minutes away but it always feels like your on holiday. Great for outside eating and drinking in the summer.
