We had been recommended this restaurant by a colleague and we weren’t disappointed. The service was friendly, welcoming and the food was really lovely . I will definitely be going again and would definitely recommend a visit. It’s a gem tucked out of the way...and well worth a visitMore

We visited this pub after recommendations from locals in Knutsford and I'm so glad we listened! From walking though the door we were looked after by the manager/owner, she went out of her way to engage with us including our 8 year old. The food...was excellent and our only critique would be there could be a few more wines on their list. The atmosphere was on point for a family friendly pub and with many other diners in with children we weren't the only ones thinking this. Will definitely be returning.More

How not to treat your customers. Having eaten here many times before and having a fantastic meal outside in July we were looking forward to a Friday night meal as a family. The starters came and apart from being bland were more ‘plate’ than food....The prawn dish with 4 prawns was a bowl of garlic with oil. The goats cheese with savoury flapjack I needed a pint of water to wash it down. We were hungry and didn’t want to make a scene, so just picked and waited for the mains. The mains came but the starter plates hadn’t been taken so the waitress came to the table anyway, we then had to make room and one main meal was temporarily put on the table next to us with actual people on, while the waitress attempted to make some space. The mains were the beef burger and jerk chicken burger. If I had wanted to eat at McDonald’s I would have gone there instead. Frozen chips that were cold and burnt and an average burger. The look of the food was not in keeping with the food we have had before. We spoke to the waitress who then sent Dave the Manager over. He proceeded to tell us the food was fine and the burger was in a brioche bun (it was not) whilst slurring and wavering from side to side saying “I don’t know what to do”. People were looking and listening it was embarrassing. He then walked off to then come back and seemed rather under the influence and rambling that he was trying to feed us and again didn’t know what to do. At this point he told us and the whole room we didn’t have to pay for anything it was on him and he then staggered off, still mumbling and waving his hands in the air. After 10 minutes of not knowing what to do we got up to go and try to pay for the drinks at least to be told to just leave and not come back. We wanted to speak to Dave and try and explain our upset and embarrassment to which he pointed his finger, was aggressive and told us to go, he then said come outside and let’s chat. He took us to the door and basically removed us, turned his back and walked off. Never have I ever been so upset and humiliated. Out of principal we won’t be visiting again.More

Mid-afternoon Sunday lunch. Faultless really. Great service and super atmosphere. Food was excellent - Roast beef beautifully pink and big fluffy Yorkshire pud! 2 x Starters, Mains and wines (each) = £68.00 (inc 10% tip) What’s not to like?

Called by for lunch yesterday, sat outside which was lovely , nice surroundings, I had the Camembert which was lovely you can’t get that wrong really ! But no chutney which I found strange , toasted bread which was burnt and Rock hard a little...disappointed really but the thing that spoiled it was the fact they put a tip on the bill ! Which I thought was at the customers discretion but no they told you how much your tip was going to be , personally I think this was snd is wrongMore

I’ve had to think a lot about this review. In the past I could comfortably assess this restaurant as 4 or even 5 stars. That is not the case today. Shown to our prebooked table and offered menus. We ordered drinks and subsequently starters and...main courses for all. One starter, we were alerted, was missing ingredients. We agreed a compromise. Another starter was Camembert (hot). Should be creamy. It was lumpy. It seems we were not the first to complain. Two mains of lamp rump arrived rare, despite being told they would be pink. One was sent back to kitchen but was still very bloody and not eaten on return. I don’t expect fillet steak to have gristle, but it did Not once were we asked if food was good or if we required more drinks, so we were all left with the single first drink we ordered. Worst part, proprietor/ manger, David R came to our table but was, at the very least, intoxicated! At 8.30pm he was slurring his words, swaying from side to side, talking in a ridiculous fashion, making no sense at all about “stars and non stars”. Assume he was talking about celebs that frequent… We did not stay for desserts. The lady manager of the restaurant is lovely and understood completely. How she and the rest of the front of house team work with such poor quality food from the kitchen and a manager who behaves like he is in a nightclub, is beyond me! Our dearest friends, who have been regular patrons will not be returning. We certainly will not. They’ve already been spreading the word amongst family, friends, golf clubs etc. With so much hospitality choice in this area there is no room for this extremely poor level of service and food.More
