Went to the newly refurbished Red Door Bistro with my husband on the opening night, Valentines Day. The place looks great. It's very classy with great ambience. To me the best restaurant Wigan has to offer. The menu changes daily. I like that touch, as you'd never get board of going as there is always something different to try. The... More

This is a rather small quirky restaurant in the town centre. This was our first visit and we had booked the previous day and was informed the restaurant would be full that night On arrival we were pleasantly greeted and shown to a table for two which was rather small and cramped We ordered seven tapas plates which were larger...

Service is slow, food was overpriced and bland. Drinks were good and the waitress was pleasant and accommodating. Overall not recommended.

Dear 1000nrr1000 Unfortunatly I can not comment on your review as we have no idea who you are. We closed on the 23rd December for a refurb and your review was published in the 28th. I have emailed you through trip advisor to ask for further details and Im still awaiting a response. Your review contradicts itself and there is... More

This was literally the worst dining experience down to every last detail. We came in as a party at lunch time. I table was booked for 1pm with our order placed EIGHT DAYS in advance. We did not receive our food until 2pm. At which point some had already left because they couldn't wait any longer and had to get... More

Visited for lunch with my Daughter and her boyfriend. Found the restaurant through trip advisor reviews so expectations were high and we were not disappointed. We all had three courses which were all delicious, staff were very friendly without being intrusive. 3 courses each with 3 rounds of drinks all for £68.....bargain! Also gave my Daughter a free drink and... More

Hadn't booked - but from the moment we walked through the door, we were treated to the most friendly and attentive service! The fact that the food was delicious and I was allowed to taste the wine before deciding on which bottle to choose was just a bonus. We had a chat with the chef, we talked about the provenance...

Went for the first time last night and looking forward to returning. The food was excellent and the steak cooked perfectly. The staff were very welcoming and very friendly. Wish I had know about Red Door before.

Been here a few times and it has always been great but the christmas menu exceeded all expectations! The bistro was so cozy and christmassy i had to get a mulled wine to get in with the festive atmosphere and at 2.95 it was a bargain! The food was beautiful as usual.

Booked for me and my wife... Firstly the menu is tiny and currently meant to be festive although the only Christmas thing on the menu was Christmas pudding. They do no sides or sharing platters yet put plates on your tables which we found strange. The layout isn't great... your either sat next to the front door, toilets or some... More

Thank you for your feedback regarding your Friday evening at Red Door Bistro.

The staff at Red Door Bistro were great, they managed to squeeze us in last minute and were so welcoming and friendly. The food was beautiful. The place had a really European atmosphere. With great art on the walls. Although I must say, as we were a late booking, they had run out of a couple of things from the... More
