Forget about the strange name, this restaurant is a beacon of culinary light in an otherwise bleak area. Although they describe themselves as a bistro, the décor of the dining room has a minimalist modern feel, with large wooden effigies of cutlery on the wall, and well-spaced tables with crisp white napery.
The food on offer is quite brave for the area - starters might include the likes of 'Crisp Wild Mallard Won Tons with a Honey and Lime Hoi Din Sauce' 'Black Pudding with local Ham and Mascarpone Ravioli' and 'Fresh Fleetwood Crab Cake with Morcambe Bay Shrimps'.
Mains perhaps 'Caramelised Duck Breast with Wilted Greens and a Thai Black Cherry Sauce'; 'Fillet of Sea Bass with Dauphinoise Potatoes and a Ginger Butter Sauce' and 'Roasted Suckling Pig with a Lancashire Sausage and a Strawberry Pepper Sauce.
Desserts are more traditional - with the likes of 'Knickerbocker Glory' or 'Lemon Tart'.
