    Best dish was the fried chicken but overall the food wasn’t the best. The sausage n mash meals couldn’t be eaten, the piri piri chicken burger was too well done and the sticky toffee pudding was over cooked and to hard!

    We ordered one home and one afternoon tea and the whole experience was amazing. The sandwiches were really fresh, the fish and chips and Yorkshire pudding with beef and gravy were hot and so tasty. The service was exceptional. We went on a Monday and it was half price but would have definitely have paid full price

    We did enjoy our time and the food was lovely but we had to wait an extra 10 or more minutes for one of the meals. We weren’t asked how our meal was or if we wanted any more drinks. We moved into the bar area afterwards and had ordered drinks but we were waiting ages and found out they had been forgotten about. It was all just slow and we are unsure if we will return, even though we are disappointed as we like it.

    We took my local university student son for lunch here. The food was excellent and well prepared and presented. The pie with my “Scholsey” was one of the best I’ve had. We had to wait for our meal but because we were talking we didn’t really notice but the staff member gave us a discount without us mentioning it which afterwards was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend and will certainly go back here when visiting our son in Manchester

    We went for my son’s birthday. All the food was lovely But one of the meals and side order came out later than the others luckily it didn’t ruin the meal overall. Would definitely go back

    Was very quiet for a bank holiday afternoon, ordered starters and mains for the four of us and felt it took a little longer than expected. The food was spot on as was the overall service, the extra goodies for the kids was also appreciated.

    Food was lovely, had to ask for the little drink you get with it, never asked us or gave us tea/coffee.

    What an amazing experience at cafe football. It was my daughters 10th birthday and we were greeted with a bunch of balloons and a birthday card. Husbands club sandwich was only just warm and the cheese was missing off my chicken burger but overall a great experience. The only thing we did not like was the sticky toffee pudding. It was Tasteless and a very funny texture inside had a kind of skin on the outside too. Was not enjoyable at all. They ice cream though was delicious.
