The Boundary is a very local pub, quiet and a bit boring, not much goes on there and there is not much atmosphere, just a lot of older folk drinking and chatting.
I think they do Karioki there occasionaly but not many people get up and sing just the same faces etc.
I did go there once at New Years eve and it wasnt too bad, not the best pub in the world but the drinks were cheap and the staff friendly.
They have a duke box, so if you want to liven the pub up a bit it will cost you.
They do have rooms upstairs that they let out for functions, but you have to go up and down stairs to the bar, no really convenient.
Tinos is an absolutely lovely Italian resteraunt the food is fantastic, a little bit pricey but well worth it, you do have to book for a table in advance as it does get booked up quickyly with it being so popular.
We had our christmas party there and it was very nice, the food was perfect and table and room set out lovely, the staff are so helpful and cant do enough for you, We stayed seated and they brought over the drinks and we did not have to wait very long for the food or drinks to be served
I would definately recommend going to Tinos for a romantic meal for two or with a large party, I can honestly say I have visited about 8 times and never had a bad meal there, I have always enjoyed my visits.
Waterfields is a lovely old fashioned traditional bakery, very clean and fresh, it always smells nice when you go through the door, it is well known for being the most expensive bakery in Leigh, but it also tastes the nicest, so you get what you pay for. They also make the most beautiful birthday/wedding cakes to order in many beautiful designes, there are so many to choose from you cant go wrong.
They do hot pies and pastries and lovely sandwhiches, cakes, and their fresh baked bread is delicious too.
For that special occasion they do have a fantastic buffet menu at quite reasonable prices.
Dickens is the best hairdressing salon in Leigh, it has been going for such a long time and is well known for the best cut and blow around, they do charge very high prices but it is a top salon with the best stylists, if you want a perfect hair style Dickens is a must.
If you decide to have your hair styled by Dickens then please remember to book early, especially at Christmas because they do get booked up very quickly and you could have a few weeks wait for an appointment.
The shop itself is very bright and pleasant with large window frontage and they have an excellent range of hair products on display to purchase.
One of my favourite resturants!! my mum lives close by to this place and we often make a trip here for a lovely family meal on a weekend!
I always have the tikka masala, with loads of popadums, onion bhajis!! god its heaven. i would definatly recommend this place, and it such a cheap place too. nothing is over priced and the last few times ive been they brought a few complimentary dishes (mini) for us to try!!! great to let you taste things without wasting a whole meal if you dont like it!
Bit of a mish mash shop, in here you can find dvd and games for rent, then games and dvds to buy, preowned games consoles and hardware, and if that wasn't enough, also computer hardware and software.
Have often found imported games for the nintendo DS in there which is always interesting as some you can't get over here, or in some cases, can buy them before they are realise in this country.
The staff are very helpful and pleasant, one even let me buy a postman pat dvd that was up for rent after my 2yo spotted it, can't say fairer than that!
Its a bit out of the way on Gas street, but worth the effort.
Nice pub, decent pint of Guinness to be had (and thats the most important thing right?) Patrons seem to be on the older side, which is not a bad thing of course, but I've often felt the youngest one in there at the grand old age of 26 (and the only woman in there apart from the girl behind the bar..)
Often have live music in of the decent sort, the drink is nice and cheap, its overall a nice little pub and one I enjoy going in regardless :-)

One of my favourite post offices I can Highly Recommend Railway Road Post Office in Leigh.
I love this place. A large group of us go here every single year for our Xmas meal - I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. It's extremely good value for money and the food it top class. The manager Rufus is always welcoming and very helpful. It is usually £19.95 for 3 courses and half a bottle of wine, but it may be a bit more expensive in December.
