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.
Food was everything that was expected and didn’t have a long wait to be served. Table was a nice set up and staff were all lovely.
Love the top class food in this place. Staff are polite and helpful nothing is too much to ask for.
A really lovely atmosphere. Food was very well presented and of a high quality. Service was prompt without feeling as though we were rushed. Enjoyable meal, will visit again.
Lovely food and great service. Great value for money the steaks were cooked exactly as asked for would go back again. Staff were helpful nothing too much trouble
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.
Service was great, food was great. Only issue was the lack of space. The restaurant was really busy for 7pm on a Monday night, which is a good thing, but not when you 're constantly moving your chair in & out to let other diners squeeze past you because the tables are cramped so close together. A minor thing I know, but when your constantly watching for people squeezing past you it does detract from your enjoyment of both the food & the company you are with.
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!
Had such an amazing meal! Serving staff were incredible and the chef was unreal. I have dietary requirements and the staff went above and beyond to make sure I had an amazing meal! The chef even altered some items for me! Couldn’t ask for anything more (except maybe for the recipe for the gravy because it was delicious)
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.
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.
