If you are seeking to enjoy great pizza made in the way that only Italians can make it then I strongly urge you to avoid this restaurant. The pizzas are OBVIOUSLY cooked from frozen no doubt purchased from ASDA and are truly disgusting.
If I wanted to eat cheap, nasty pizza I would have stayed at home and bought my own pizza from ASDA rather than pay someone £6 to warm it up for me. The ONLY redeeming factor about this place is the staff, not the management or the food.
Favorite Dish: NONE
This Restaurant is the Best in Oldham, You may have to book but it is well worth it, The menu is written on the mirror and the Garlic bread is out of this world.
08/03/10 They have now bought what used to be the Town House which they have also named the Old Bill. the food is sure to be great
Favorite Dish: The Garlic Bread, Steak ... Anything !!
The rose of Lancaster is a great pub on the side of the Rochdale Canal in Chadderton just near Middleton Junction. The pub was built at the same time as the canal in order to serve the workers off the canal as well as those from the local area. The pub has changed over the years but still retains a few great features like the lovely wood burning cooking range that we were sat in front of.
Although it is a Lees brewery pub and being so they serve the same menu as other Lees's owned pubs they also have their own small menu which i thought a really nice touch. The food was lovely, I had fish and chips and Mickyboy07 had Lasagne. both off the Lees's menu.
the food here seems to be a lot netter than The Boat and Horses which is another Lee's pub that i have been to a number of times although it has the same menu.
Ye Olde Black Ladd (or The Black lad) is a great Pub and restaurant above Oldham with some fantastic views. The exterior is a bit tatty looking when you get close up and a bit of paint would work wonders but the interior with its wood frame look is really quite nice. It's a great place to call in for a drink or for some food. It is supposadly haunted by a man who died during a pub brawl in 1704
The menu is good with plenty of choice from filled Ciabatta to a great Mixed grill. On a recent visit i had Rag pudding chips and veg, It was lovely. it is certainly worth a visit as the food is good and the views are fantastic.On a clear day you can see right down to Manchester and beyond.
The staff were very friendly and attentive making you really feel welcome and at home.
Located in a lovely scenic,quiet spot in Chadderton fold this local pub is quite hidden from the main road and can be easily missed.There is a river running alongside,a Bowling Green to the rear and a beer garden to the front.The pub serves food daily with a variety of main meals and snacks available at reasonable prices.We didnt eat here just had drinks but the food looked quite good,staff are helpful and there is a main lounge as well as a tap room.
Situated at the Chadderton/Middleton border five minutes from Chadderton Hall park is this lovely pub/restaurant,with an open log fire place and lots of character its the perfect place to grab a spot of lunch and a drink.The staff are friendly and helpful,the food is great and both food and drink are reasonably priced.The pub is part of the JW Lees and co.There are two main areas,the lower area is the restaurant were tables are usually booked in advance,the upper bar area is for lunch times and drinks.There is also a large car park at the side of the building connecting to a side entrance.

The Greenroom Cafe is situated on one of the main shopping streets in the centre of Oldham and also has an entrance at the back into the indoor market. It is a small cafe which has a large variety of meals on the menu, you can choose anything from a tea cake to a Roast dinner. The prices are very reasonable, I had a cooked breakfast which was very nice indeed, it cost £3.50 and a pot of tea set me back £1.
Favorite Dish: The cooked breakfast was lovely.
I never knew this until recently but the great British Tradition of Fish and Chips begun in Oldham in 1860. It was here they 'cooked' up the idea to create the first British fried chip. There is a plaque on the wall next to Levers take away in Oldham High street to remind us of this fact which we take for granted.
Favorite Dish: Errr... Fish and Chips!
A modern and well maintained pub with nice decor and pleasent surroundings,good food with a varied selection of snacks,soups,main meals deserts and coffee and a large selection of wines,beers and soft drinks at reasonable prices.Eat or drink inside or outside overlooking the canal.
Favorite Dish: Try the Chicken New Yorker,Tender chicken breast with crispy bacon and barbacue sauce sprinkled with mature chedder served with chips and salad or potatoes and garden peas.
Added some more food pics from recent visit.
This large Pub Restaurant is owned by The J W Lees brewery, It offers good food and and some Good Beer's certainly a lot better since Lees's pubs started to serve Carlsberg and other brand name beers as well as their own (which is certainly an aquired taste).
the decor is nice giving a relaxing feel and if it's sunny you can sit outside on the Terrace which overlooks the Rochdale canal.
The food menu is the same as offered by all the JW Lees Pubs that serve food and has a good range of starters main courses and deserts to suit everybody.
I had Chicken New Yorker which consisted of Chicken breast topped with bacon and a BBQ sauce and sprinkled with Cheese. Served with chips and salad for £7.95.
I have also had the Prawn marie Rose sandwich with salad for £3.75
They also offer a Meal Deal menu were you can chose from a choice of starters and main courses for £7.95 with the option of adding a dessert for an extra £2
Favorite Dish: The Handmade Burgers are lovely and as a part of tthe meal deal i have the breaded Mushrooms to start.
The Boat & Horses is a great place, owned by the Brewery JW Lees. It is roomy & spacious inside and has a fabulous beer garden outside overlooking the canal. We were here on a weekday lunchtime and it was quite busy then so I can imagine it's very popular on the weekends.
Favorite Dish: I had a wrap containing duck with cucumber, spring onion & hoi sin sauce - it was delicious, I would definitely recommend it!
Georgie Porgies is a quiet little tea room on George Street. It is on the first floor and as far as i could tell there was no disabled access. We went here for lunch one day and I had the 'Totally Itallian' Panini, which was tomato, salami and mozzarella cheese. It was served with a nice side salad. You also get to choose your salad dressing from a selection, and it is brought in a small bowl for you to add yourself. It was all very nice, despite the panini being a little dry, but I would still come back here for another.
The service was friendly and the decor attractive.
Favorite Dish: I had the 'Totally Italian' Panini which tasted fantastic but was a little dry. The salad was very nice.
The Three Crowns is a public house in the centre of Oldham. Its close proximity to the bus station make it popular with shoppers wanting a refreshing drink before they go home. It serves high quality beers, lagers, ales and ciders as well as food. At night they sometimes have live acts ranging from stand up comedians to bands. The prices are reasonable, the staff are friendly and the service is excellent, so why not stop by before, during or after your shopping spree!
The pub has recently been through a change of hands, and since then the selection of food has gone down, however it is still very nice. The last time I was in I had Pasta Carbonara. The pasta was Fusilli, which is unusual for Carbonara, but it was nice all the same. It was served with peas and a very generous helping of chips, again unusual for a pasta dish but it was very nice (it seems most things on the menu were served with peas and chips). The food is also cheeper than it used to be, although not quite of the same quality.
Favorite Dish: I had the Fusilli Carbonara, which was delicious and full of flavour, although with an odd accompaniment of peas and chips.
The Blue Ocean is a relatively new Indian Restaurant in Oldham, which opened on the 19th June 2007. Since the day of its opening it has been one of the favourite restaurants in Oldham and since then I have been many times. Not only is it a fine restaurant, it has a small bar where you can sit before they set your table, when a waiter will carry your drinks through for you, and there is a nightclub downstairs with resident DJ and dance floor. The staff are always extremely friendly and always like to have a quick chat with you while you wait for your food.
The portions here are quite large, and one portion of rice will easily do two people, but if you do need more they will quickly bring you some.
Favorite Dish: The Chicken Korma here is mild but full of flavour, excellent with Pilau Rice and a Garlic Naan Bread, after some of the best Poppadoms i have ever had.
