Food good , downside was when my wife mentioned she loved the honeycombe dessert, they brought her an extra piece to take away, then added £1.50 to the £75.00 bill!!!

Delicious food. Exceptional service. A very enjoyable Sunday lunch was had by everyone in our group.
Not a scrap left on my plates after 3 courses.

Great food, service and value - previously had a great lunch at sister restaurant Wreckfish in Liverpool - Sticky in Hoole was every bit as good - love the consistency achieved by Elite Bistros and their teams - and btw I rarely write reviews but these guys are worth the effort ....

Appearances can be deceiving and this restaurant proves the point. Understated in its overall appearance bar a chandelier that was definitely out of place. It delivered on the quality of its food and particularly on service. In my opinion definitely worth a visit.

It’s been a few years since I last ate here (it’s so good that it’s hard to get a table for dinner) but it was just as good as I remembered. I have to recommend the beetroot salad with sticky walnuts, it’s divine!

We eat here occasionally as, while expensive, the Sticky Walnut has always had the wow factor. Sadly this was missing on this occasion. I ordered the premium priced lamb rump and was presented with two small pieces of lamb both with about a quarter fat on them. I immediately commented on this to the waitress who said she would talk to the kitchen. The lamb was OK but nothing like as succulent as I would have expected for the portion size and price. I again expressed my disappointment when a second waiter collected the plates. The cheese I had was very nice but presented very oddly with four slices of dry bread. I could only eat one. No one came to talk to me about my complaint which was also disappointing. Service was also average as never once were we asked if we wanted more drinks despite sitting with none at the pudding course. We declined coffee. Their loss. An average but still rather expensive meal.

Fabulous food in a homely atmosphere with Michelin star service. I had the lamb and friends the beef...absolutely delicious. Cheese board to die for. Too full for puds but great choice. Wish I lived closer so I could revisit.

Another excellent meal. We started with soup which, whilst being very tasy could have been hotter. The main dishes were good and the lemon sponge desert excellent.

Our table had four guests and we were each very happy with our meals. For entree three of us had the Crab Agnolotti and it was beautiful, the flavours were delicate and there was the perfect amount. One had the torched sea trout and whilst very good, wasn't appreciated quite as much as the Agnolotti! For mains we had two Feather Blades, one Chicken and one Cod. All mains got a big tick and the side of truffle chips were very much enjoyed. Overall we were really happy and would definitely head back there again when in the area! We also managed to share desserts, having the Creme Brulee and the Chocolate Mousse. The Brulee was perfect and the Chocolate Mousse very rich, but between two just the right amount of richness.

I’ve supported the Sticky from its first days. Disappointed for the first time. This is what happens when you neglect your first child! Expanding the empire but forgetting the roots and ethos. Shame.

Sunday lunch just as good as usual. Service friendly and discreet. Wine good value. Only thing I miss is the mismatched tables and chairs which gave a nice vintage feel to the place! One of the few restaurants I visit that is consistently outstanding.
