The Fat Olive is a little further afield than usual, but well worth the adventure for some cracking company. I have to say the main draw (after the company) was the ‘favourites’ menu, which offers three courses for 15quid. It took a bit of finding and I’m glad I wasn’t wandering the dark streets in my search, but it was a little treasure.
The food was significantly better than I was anticipating (given the price tag) and us being the only ones in the restaurant for the first hour…It certainly did the job in filling our stomachs while having a good old fashioned chin-wag and the three cheese starter is definitely something to re-create in the kitchen!
When in Wigan, eat pie…
