Donatellos: Lovely little italian
A family friendly italian restaurant based in Orford Warrington not far from the town centre.
The food is lovely and it is pretty close to authentic italian.
good menu choice and wine list.....always specials on.
No need to book at this place just turn up and wait! (sometimes on a saturday this place is rammed!)
The Cottage: good atmosphere
I have to say that this place isn't as good as it once was (the service mainly!) but the food is still good if a little pricy.
good place for couples and groups alike but book in advance as it is always busy.
Have some good offers on on Sundays.
Jenerics: cheap buffet chinese
Jenerics has been in Warrington for years. OK its more of a get 'em in and get 'em out kind of place as opposed to a romantic meal for two but it is worth a visit as the food is fabulous!
There are many choices at this buffet restaurant and the food is always hot and being constantly replenished. The place is spotlesssly clean.
Family friendly too although later on you may want to avoid with the gangs of teenagers!!
Favorite Dish: anything...is all good but the curry is pretty hard to beat!
Flavours: authentic Turkish cuisine
fab Turkish restaurant based in Lymm about 6 miles from Warrington town centre.
Excellent menu, nice decor and fantastically helpful and friendly staff.
good for both couples and groups and is also child friendly.
Favorite Dish: Mixed meat platter - but be warned lots of food on there for two!
The Bayleaf: good indian food and fab service
nothing too much trouble for the staff here - and always happy to recommend dishes. Not the most fancy of places so perhaps not for a romantic soiree but great for groups of friends as you never feel rushed.
Favorite Dish: love the Tandori chicken tikka with a side of korma sauce!
Ruchi Tandori: Wonderful Indian Restaurant & takeaway
I'm so impressed by the quality of the food at the Ruchi Tandori that I feel compelled to give it a review. They serve by far the tastiest and most authentic cuisine in Warrington - absolutely delicious, and also consistently good, whether you go in the evening, for lunch, or takeaway. One of the best indians I've ever had! It doesn't look great from the outside, and the location isn't brilliant (in Scotland Road, Warrington, near the bus station) but it is so worth going in for the food, and the service is also excellent.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish from here is Lamb Bhuna - absolutely delicious, and the rice is so fresh-tasting. Absolutely wonderful, and also available at a bargain price on the lunchtime menu.
The Cottage: Oliver Cromwells - Indian Restuarant
What used to be the local haunt of the likes of Oliver Cromwell in the 17th century is now disguised as an Indian Restaurant. I use the term Indian very loosely.
For in fact beneath this well preserved 16th/17th century listed building is a modern, art deco style, fashionable restaurant that entertains the hip, the happening and of course the influential.
I was intrigued to visit this tardis like building after a colleague described it to me. Sitting on the main road, Church Street in Warrington, it is overpowered by the huge monsterous Sainsbury supermarket just behind it. At least there is plenty of free parking space!
The service was okay here but the food ... well ... unsatisfied to say the least. I ordered the meat thali, which comprised of Nan, pilau rice, lamb curry, chicken curry and a vegetable and chicken madras mix. In addition two small weeners which were supposed to be seekh kebabs. If I could use one word to describe my dining experience, "Bland", would be it, with a capital B.
After my short meal I expressed my dissatisfaction to the waiter, who apologised, but stressed that the food was catered for the "local" community, although those were not his exact words!
Conclusion, if you like an expensive but bland curry in a unique and beautifully historic setting this is the place for you!
If I try this place again and the food is better I shall certainly amend this review.

Old Stone House: Great steak and prawns on a hot stone tile
I went to the Old Stone House for dinner. I had a rib-eye steak and prawns on a hot stone tile. Soup, salad and dessert were included. Nice ambience and good service. Good place for a group or special occasion.
Tom at 101: Stockton Heath Delight
From the moment you step through the doors of the downstairs wine bar you know the evening is going to be good. Sip a G&T, perhaps tingle your throat with a Laurent Perrier or quench your thirst with a good bitter to get yourself into the relaxed mood of the evening.
Then move upstairs to the restaurant, not a quiet restaurant where you dare not even whisper but neither is it the raucous ear shattering cacophony of McDonalds (how dare I mention that name in the same paragraph as a real restaurant)
A fantastic selection of dishes is listed on their menu of which many will have you wishing you dinned here more often. The wine list covers a multitude of delights from around the globe to suit most palates.
The feel, the look, the staff, the ambiance and the food make this restaurant a great night out, it is always busy with locals and 'out of towners' which speaks volumes for the quality so make sure to book on those busy nights.
Favorite Dish: Starter: Thai fishcakes served on a vermicelli salad with a sweet chilli dressing.
Enough to get the ball rolling but not spoil the main course, the sweet chilli
Compliments the fishcake superbly
Main: Balsamic roasted rump of lamb cooked pink served on a spinach & potato cake with natural glaze
If you like lamb you'll love this, pink like it should be and tender as tender can be.

The Lord Rodney: Pub food
This is one of the few pubs that do not use the breweries microwaved ready meals. The food is prepared freshly and it is home made. The prices are also lower than the pub chains menus.
The pub it's self is worh a visit.
I think they only do lunchtime food. Don't expect to get served on a match day, It's 20 yards from the Rugby ground.
Favorite Dish: Pie of the day or Irish stew if it's on.
The Curries uses a chinese style curry sauce but it is fine with plenty of meat.
Harry ramsdens: Great fish and chips
Good layout and feel. Traditional and great level of theming combined with quick staff and a good quality of food. Hot and not over cooked. Very impressed, when visiting during a birthday some years ago.
Favorite Dish: Fish and chips.
Rhode Island Coffee: Coffee galore!
Tucked away in a corner of Golden Square in the heart of Warrington is this smashing coffee house. It's really friendly and just the place to sit a while and watch the world go by! Lots of really good coffee, cakes and pastries.
Favorite Dish: Home made fruit cake - forget the waist-line!!
The Barley Mow: Oldest Pub in Warrington?
This 16th Century coaching inn, still serves food and drink. It sits rather oddly, with a shopping Mall built around it, but it is a useful place for lunch when out and about in Warrrington
