In a rural setting, it has an attractive appearance and grounds and plentiful parking. We were greeted on arrival and shown to our table. The decor is typical of this chain of pub/restaurants: old furniture and a library of books. it is spacious but split into smaller, discreet eating areas. The menu was slightly different from the usual Brunning and... More

Charming pub with an unusual library setting... in a wonderful countryside scenery... surrounded by a lot of space with tables outside and a garden for children to play - unusual menu with a mixture of British and foreign food

Great service, great food, great place. Professional staff, spotlessly clean, lovely atmosphere. We were an hour earlier than expected but no problem, accommodated us straight away. I've got to write 100 letters in this review but don't know what else to say which is why I'm typing this to make the 100 character count, bit daft trip advisor!

Lovely pub/restaurant in a lovely village just outside Chester. We have been here on several occasions and always had lovely food. On this occasion we had our Labrador puppy with us and all the staff made us all feel so wellcome. The food and service were excellent and we have now booked to visit again on my Wife's 50th birthday... More

We visited 27/2/17 for a quite anniversary celebration. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted with a welcoming smile and the warmth continued through out our visit. Our meal was lovely we both had the steak pie which was very tasty and unlike some other pubs locally was a good size portion. First visit but will... More

We visited as a group of people for sunday lunch . The food was freshly prepared and to a good quality , the wine was also good . Service was also good though somewhat slow , but I guess this was due to the restaurant being rather busy . Can recommend this venue we shall certainly return

I'm very sad to write this review, as we have been regulars at this restaurant for about 10 years and have always been so very impressed with the food and service. Two years ago I became vegan and the first few times we visited the chef was able to offer me something (in the summer a lovely couscous salad) but... More

Sat in conservatory, bright and cheerful. Staff very attentive without making us feel rushed, in fact we were still chatting at our table 3 hours after we arrived. Meal was lovely, very good value, piping hot, tasty, ample choice, if I had to complain at all for me the portions are too large and I don't like to waste food.... More
