Lies and more lies
Utter rubbish posted by the we love the Puckersley brigade.!! I expect they are all friends of the owners (if not the owners themselves....). Read my post from July 2009. Nothing has changed - 2 colleagues went the other day and were treated exactly the same, offhand, long wait, average food. What planet are you lot on???

Great night!
Went in on Wednesday night, the Inn is under new management, the food was superb and the background entertainment was first class! Highly recommended.

The Puckersley Inn is now under New management so none of the previous comments are applicable. We have eaten there twice recently and the food was excellent. The servce very good and a friendly atmosphere. Congratulations to the new Landlady and the new chefs Highly recommended.

In reply to julus.I eat in both the Puckersly and the TurksHead and find both establishments excellent.The dishes Jules said she ordered in the Turks Head that took 11mins are not available and to my knowledge never have been.She obviously was upset at the huge turnout for her birthday party.

browsing at the puckersley comments i came across a comment that was incorrect. i never saw a cheese pastry or a leek based pastry, NO CLUE WHAT YOU ARE ON ABOUT. i my self ordered the lamb dish and it was mouht watering delicious. i did not mind the 30 minute wait as i knew that it was cooked fresh. i also enjoyed my scallops and black pudding starter. had no probs with the staff or the food EXCELLENT !

my family and i had a meal at the pub last week and the food was excellent the service was excellent the staff were nice and polite to us all we did not mind waiting for our meals as they were freshly cooked and you can not expect your meal to be cooked in ten mins when all the food is fresh as we all know so i think you where mistaken. YOU DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING AS YOU WERE UNINPATIENT WAITING FOR YOUR HOMEMADE MEAL THAT WAS SERVED TO YOU AS YOU WALKED AS I HAVE HEARD . MY HUSBAND WAS AT THE BAR. I HAVE HAD A CHICKEN SALAD AND IT HAD TAKEN EXACTLY 25 MINS BECAUSE IT IS FRESH CHICKEN BREAST BAKED IN THE OVEN NOT SOMETHING MICROWAVED OR ALREADY PREPARED AS IT IS FRESH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! P.S MY HUSBAND DID NOT RECALL OR HEAR ANY SWEARING AT YOU AT ALL

Thrown Out !!!
On my birthday last week we were thrown out by the chef, for having the temerity to ask why it took 45 minutes to prepare a salad. I wouldn't mind but the place was empty except for me and my 14 year old son. Now we know why. Get to F**ing MacDonalds were his exact words. Not been thrown out of a place since I was a student nurse 25 years ago! We went up the road to the Turks Head, ordered the same thing, and timed it's arrival. 9 mins. Hmmm. don't think the new Pucky owners are going to last long....

Much like the previous poster I received food that ws wrong to my order and when I complained I was basically told that I was wrong and was made to feel stupid. The staff are a liability for J.W Lees

Very poor
This was a huge disappointment after prior recommendations. Few specials, only four starters, service abysmal. We were warned lamb would take 30 minutes to cook, so we didn't order it, then the meals took 45 minutes to arrive anyway. The scallops were gritty, and staff were rude and unhelpful when we complained. I ordered a mince and onion rag pudding and got cheese and onion, which is an odd combination indeed. On the table next to us a lady who had ordered a cheese-based pastry got leek instead. Two drinks we hadn't ordered were added to the bill. Disastrous.

Good food.
Enjoyed the meal. Food well cooked and gap between courses
well spaced. Interesting and imaginative veg including swede and parsnips. Competitively priced
just under 40.00 for 3 people
inclduding drinks. Only criticism more fish dishes could have been
offered. Stunning views of Oldham
on a nice day so suggest if going in winter, visit lunchtime to late afternoon. Good friendly service too.

The pub is now but a shadow of its former glory.We now live away but used to visit whenever we we were back in the area, and it was always excellent. Now,unfortunately,it has poor menu poorly executed and poor staff

fantastic pub, very warm and freindly
i recently went to the puckersly about a week ago now, apparently its just changed to new management. Can i just say that ive never been to a more freindly pub, it had such a great atmosphere. Me and my family ate there and the food was out of this world and was a very reasonable price. The landlady actually took the time out to welcome us and was very hospitable. great pub :-)

Excellent specials board
I've eaten in the Puckersley many times over the last 4 years and the food is always spot on. Best to book for weekends as it's always busy. I think the one bad review dates from about the time the pub changed hands, and the service did go off for a while, but it's been OK ever since. It's just become a free house so it remains to be seen if the quality is maintained; I'm assuming it will though as I'm going tonight!
Eat from the specials board, you won't be disapointed.

Tasty food, distasteful service
Worst service I have ever experienced. Had to wait almost an hour after placing our order. Would not have minded as much had the dining area been full and the staff polite and apologetic. Just as well we had ordered starters, otherwise would have left and gone to McDonalds. Worse still was the fact my chicken and bacon salad arrived ten minutes after everyone else's main course by which time they had almost finished. My plate arrived with absolutely no apology from the waitress. This truly was customer service of the lowest. The food was nice but hardly worth the wait. Will not be dining here again.
