When asked for toilet, very begrudgingly shown it. Not recommended, unless it is raining and you are really really bored…

shellgrotto, Owner at The Shell Grotto, responded to this review


This lady is a contestant on Come Dine With Me, who filmed here at the Grotto last week. Being used as a backdrop for a ‘menu reveal’ has limited publicity value for us, but it’s always fun for people who know the Grotto already to see it on the telly. The lady was late arriving and wanted a cup of tea, which I made for her cheerfully (at no charge, again). I reminded the crew – nicely – that they needed to be clear of the Grotto by our 10am opening time. They weren’t, so I had to ask them to leave at 10am. It seems this lady didn’t like her five minutes of fame (such as it is) being cut short and is now on something of a vindictive mission against us. On the plus side, the idea that I would ‘begrudgingly’ show someone the toilet made me smile. Never mind, there’s always one…!

Went to see Greece tonight at the Palace Theatre Manchester, absolutely appalling, when Sandy came on in that blonde wig at the end she looked like a rather unfortunate transvestite shame on you Palace Theatre. - Nicola T

The “food” that was on offer was as exciting as Morrissey’s stag night. I struggled to find anything that looked half appetising. There was a half empty vat of curry with a thicker skin on it than a Rhinos backside. Then the Saints be praised a fresh refill of egg foo yung emerged from Emperor Ming’s lab and four of us pounced on it like a pack of rabid dogs. We’ll never set foot back in that slop shop again I’d rather eat out the bins. - Alex G

fight broke out between the bride and groom. The grooms mother had to be pinned down by 4 police officers, the bride was kicked out of the hotel and the 4.30am crash, well that was the bride breaking into the room beneath our and smashing a set of french doors - DR0berts

Went specifically to visit the “lego mania” event. All I can say is it was a huge pile of plop sprinkled with disappointment and a cherry of children’s broken dreams. There was a small smattering of lego, certainly not enough to qualify as a “mania”. Will not visit again. - womblefruit

I was surprised when my husband returned with the drinks (I was sat outside looking after our dog) and apologised for taking so long as the barmaid didn’t know how to make an orange juice with lemonade. - Blackp00lGirl
