Clean and pleasant surroundings and friendly staff lured me into this cosy town centre cafe. Was very dissapointed by the "Lancashire Hotpot" Very bitter crust and generally the wrong consistency. I have had Hotpot on numerous occasions in other establishments and up to date have never been dissapointed. Unfortunately I am unable to comment on the other items on the... More

Cafe select is a good and busy cafe, it's attached to a chippy for proper chippy food or a selection of other foods. Really good beef n ale plate pie, pleasant and accommodating staff. Good choice of food. We call in each time we're in Wigan centre and never had a bad meal.

I ordered a simple Fish & Peas meal, it was early 11.45am, the plate was very cold the fish was a fair size but lukewarm (so early?). I hope my review makes a difference for the better. I will return but it will be sometime before I do.

Good selection of food and drinks. Very pleasant staff, interacted with my kids brilliantly. We ordered 2 full English breakfasts, they were very greasy but if you like a good old fashioned FRY up then it's not bad. Good British greasy spoon cafe.

Been twice to this establishment now, once for breakfast and today for dinner. Advertised as a " fully licensed cafe" it's a bit different, staff well presented and polite decorated well with an odd door or to, you need to look for them. Prices are good and the food is fantastic can't really fault what this family of three have... More

I'm not sure how anyone could have a bad word to say about this place. I live local and I go in on a regular basis and have never had a problem. Great staff, a great selection of different foods and reasonably priced. It's filled with regulars. The majority of the reviews are 5 rated for a reason. We can't... More

I'm not usually one to complain but I could not share this review soon enough! We visited this cafe for lunch on Boxing Day bank holiday and were surprised by the amount of staff they had working there. The decor is awful. The restaurant was quiet so we were easily able to find a table and as soon as we... More
