About The Fat Bull

Steaks, seafood, pasta and gourmet salads are what you can expect when dining at The Fat Bull, a steakhouse that’s taking the dining scene in Ashton-in-Makerfield by storm. Known for their fantastic grilled delights and hearty mains, The Fat Bull’s chefs are grillmasters in every sense of the word. Favourites at this restaurant on Warrington Road include their superb British steak cheese burger topped with mozzarella and onion rings, their 16oz T-bone steak, and our favourite, the surf & turf, a 12oz rump steak with pan seared king prawns. There’s plenty more where that came from, so reserve a table ahead of time and come taste for yourself at this restaurant just outside of Wigan.

Restaurant was packed for a week night because of the good half price steak offers which are only valid if you buy a starter or dessert. We were put on a table right next to the bar where staff were walking past all the time which did annoy me as i felt detached from the more relaxed atmosphere of the main room. My starter was pate which was ok but the onion chuckney wasnt all that good and the toast crumbed on contact. My sirloin was cooked wrong as it came medium when i asked for medium well so had to send it back. The staff were apologetic and polite but were very busy rushing around. My partners meal was fine however we were there nearly 2 hours for a 2 course meal. Far too long await to order and then receive the courses. I would think twice about going again.

Great food with exceptional service. Booked a table for 7.00 & was eating starter for 7.15, with main course served at 7.40. Been to fat bull several times, and every time does not disappoint. Highly recommend eating here. Only down side was that it was 1 week to Christmas with the festive menu being served, not one Christmas cracker in sight!

Very pleased with our experience, they moved the timings on our table due to our travel delays on the day and from arrival to end of meal the service was very good and food (steaks)/beverage (cocktails) were excellent. I had recommended this location to all that attended on the evening in question and everyone was very satisfied. I and my colleagues would return in the future.

Early Friday evening special. 2 x steak meals plus bottle of wine £20. Excellent value. Food lovely, perfectly cooked steak, nice home made chips, and a tasty peppercorn sauce. All nicely presented. Washed down with a nice chilled white wine. Service a little slow but well worth the wait and would definitely eat here again.

Really enjoyed our meal on Friday. We enjoyed our steaks and cocktails. We were warned there was a large party upstairs who had just ordered food, but our service was reasonably swift. The quality of the steaks is always excellent. We have eaten there many times. The only drawback was that even for an 8 o'clock reservation, they had already run out of fillet steak.

Food was good! The only downside to the evening was being seated by the front door as I felt draughty all evening. It took a 40 minutes to receive our starters from ordering. We asked for a taxi to be ordered for us at the end of the evening and the waitress was obliging. The staff were friendly and efficient. Overall a good experience!
