    Food was fantastic but the length of time it too to receive the food and then also to get the bill when trying to pay was excessive

    Had to wait an hour for food and was not told this when we arrive. We had pre booked the table. My order came and it was wrong so had to wait longer for my order to be corrected, and I had to chase this up! I posted a review on Google and the Owner Lee came back to me blaming the hot weather for lots of customer therefore that is why the food took so long. He also went into a ordeal of explaining that the site is not just a restaurant but like a heritage ctr - the point is if I am going to the restaurant.....that is all I am bothered about - not the heritage site and you cannot blame that for poor service, rubbish and pricey food. I will not be returning. The owners reply made my experience worse.

    Service was absolutely shocking. We had booked a table but asked if we could sit outside. It was explained that if we sit outside there’s no table service, which was absolutely fine but then you don’t expect to queue for 30-40 min for 1 drink because there was 3 staff working the whole place. Food was absolutely lovely though.

    4 times I have been here hoping each time it would be better I will never go again....service is terrible so slow empty plates left on table for over 30 mins after you've finished...having to go to the bar to order a drink as nobody comes to ask what you'd like...cocktails either they can't do them or when they can they are terrible...food you ask for never available...very limited evening meal menu and over priced...not the same as the menu online and chef will not deviate from the "set menu"...very poor

    Beautifully prepared and presented food. Our young water was very polite and attentive. The building and setting is really pleasant. One or two items not available from the menu but, you find that at many places at present. Would recommend.

    Received a call on the day of the booking to say they had run out of food. They couldn’t be specific which food just pizza and possibly some burgers maybe but we some Kalamaki? Needless to say we went elsewhere. Tried to call to cancel but nobody answered the phone.

    Visited Easter Friday. Not particularly busy. Waited an hour for meal, along with other disgruntled customers. Came on a cold plate therefore food luke warm. Shame really because sitting outside we had a lovely view. The building has been very well restored. Lots of potential for this place but lacking in enthusiasm and direction.

    The building, decor and location lovely. The food was ok, chicken was overcooked and dry, pizzas looked better than they tasted but the prawn sandwich was good. The service was dreadful had to wait an hour for our food and its wasn't even busy. This was our second visit and the 1st visit was the same but we thought we'd give it another chance. Probably wouldn't go again due to long wait

    We waited over an hour for the food to be serviced then most meals were cold/ Luke warm only. No condiments on table so had to wait again for salt and pepper. Ordered drinks which also took ages. Very disappointed in service

    I’ve been a few times and always enjoyed the food, however the set menu for Mother’s Day wasn’t great. The lamb main was tiny, smaller than the starter, and the dessert was huge which seemed odd. Would return but probably not on a special occasion.

    I have eaten here a couple of times now and I have to say I have always been more than impressed! The restaurant is beautiful, the staff are friendly and helpful, the food is stunning and the atmosphere is lovely. So when I booked for Mother’s Day I was looking forward to it a LOT! However when we arrived the place was only half full which struck me as strange. I found out why a couple of minutes later when I was told that it was a fixed menu and only 2-3 items where gluten free which is a dietary requirement for me. There was no mention of a fixed menu when I booked and I felt the price of the menu for what it was, was shocking! Unfortunately we had to walk out. The young man serving us could not apologise enough and his professionalism and behaviour is a credit to him. I asked him if we where the first to walk out after finding out it was a fixed menu and he said unfortunately no we weren’t. I just thought this was a poor decision on the managements behalf to dictate a fixed menu on a special occasion without prior notice but to also lose what appeared to be more than half their custom was sad. We tried 6 other restaurants after the Finsley gate wharf and they were all booked solid. I would advise against this kind of decision in the future - or at least ensure that it appears on the booking form so that people can make that decision themselves.. this will not stop me from coming back but I will be asking in future about the menu choices beforehand.

    We were there first thing on Mother’s Day so it was very quiet. Very nice food and it was good value however we asked to substitute the eggs on one full English to hash browns as Mum can’t eat eggs and the server said yes but I was charged for an extra portion of hash browns on the bill and didn’t realise until I had checked the receipt at home. It may have had something to do with the printer being broken. Would certainly still recommend though.

    The waitress was very friendly but unfortunately we ate at 6.15pm on a Saturday and the meal each of us wanted was unavailable, so I chose a second option which was unavailable so just went for fish, which wasn't really something i would normally choose. We ended up with 2 fish and 2 burgers as seemed to be all they had. It was still only early on the Saturday so i imagine people dining after us had even less choice.

    Amazing Historic venue right on the Leeds Liverpool Canal in Burnley. Sympathetically restored and converted to a very high quality. Whilst not cheap the meal represented good value. Quality doesn't come cheap and quality is what I got. From the excellent food, pristine well appointed toilets to the perfect double espresso to top everything off. Great to see this space so busy after the difficulties of the pandemic. 10 out of 10 for Finlsey Gate Wharf. Keep it up

    When you pay £25 for a sirloin steak you don’t expect it to be tough but it was the toughest steak I’ve ever had, very disappointing, the peppercorn sauce was amazing and the chips were nice such a shame it was spoiled by the steak.

    Beautiful place, staff are lovely and the food was great... we had the breakfast ....only a couple of small things ...cutlery is a little weak for purpose id of thought it would have better quality ...and the large breakfast had the toast added too the side of the plate which kept falling off a toast rack would of been better ...also all large breakfasts usually have two eggs ...but the we did like it and would definitely return.

    Lovely dining space in a nice location . Although we were seated directly in front of the door which was being used as an exit way and it was blowing a gale so was blasted every time someone went out! Food was ok, plain and simple but tasty. Service was average. Staff need some training on which side to serve from rather than reaching across the table but polite and pleasant.
