Whenever we head over towards Chester I try to plan a stop off on journey home. Its a lovely friendly pub in a great location. Staff are always pleasant and the selection of real ales is great and food excellent. Its great after a long walk through Delamere Forest.

We LOVE The Goshawk. Staff always helpful and friendly. Food always fantastic. And they are very dog friendly to boot. What's not to love? Had the lamb rump on our most recent visit. It was cooked pink and to perfection. Would definitely recommend this warm country pub to anyone!

Been here couple of times in the past but customer service seems to have gone downhill. Got booking details wrong which totally ruined our plans for the day and when queried with management he was rude and unhelpful. Certainly won't be coming back and will be advising everyone else we know to steer clear too!!

Just had a beautiful Sunday roast here today. The food is excellent and if you don't want a traditional roast then the other menu doesn't disappoint. Staff are very pleasant and efficient. Lovely location so will definitely be back later in spring. Well recommended

No atmosphere, horrid pop music, unhappy staff and a meal which I could not eat because it was not thoroughly cooked. This was supposed to be a celebration.

Not only allowed the fog in but treated him as well they treated us! Excellent, when they served our wine they brought a bowl of water around the bar for the dog without us asking, just as if he was another member of our party. When we were seated the lovely staff checked If the dog wanted treats or anything.... More

I've visited the Goshawk many times over the past few years, it was always our first choice when going out for a meal, but not any more. We visited on Boxing Day (I know it's taken a while to write this review) as we were unable to book a table on Christmas Day and thank goodness they were fully booked!... More

They catered for all 5 of us (and two dogs), supplying us with good drinks and roast dinners. I'd go again in a heartbeat.
