Just returned from an early dinner with the family, age range 66 to 7 - all plates emptied! Menu is varied and affordable. Food presentation excellent, service excellent. The only reason I haven't given 5/5 is because the restaurant just lacks atmosphere...not sure how to describe it, decor is lovely, nice unobtrusive music and lovely staff, but.......it just lacks something?

We then had pigeon breast, rainbow trout, venison and several other dishes, all were superb, even the drink at the start of the night was very tasty even... More

Had a beautiful meal awhile ago on a gorgeous evening, so asked to be seated in the balcony which was a lovely setting. Only thing we didn't know was that you are allowed to smoke out there, and people were coming out from the main restaurant to have a cigarette. Kind of spoilt things for us - thankfully it only...

My wife and I had an early afternoon tea at the Blue Mallard, purchased online in advance by one of our daughters. Well presented food in a pleasant environment, served by friendly and helpful staff. More than adequate selection of sandwiches and cake, scones and jam and cream. The price included a glass of Prosecco and fresh tea with hot... More

What a great place! Really relaxed atmosphere, excellent service (we didn't get called 'guys' once) and great wine (we had the 'duck' white wine). Our food was incredibly good, and the chef seems to have a huge respect for the ingredients he prepares. In a lovely setting to boot, overlooking the Leeds Liverpool canal.

Visited here for our 13th wedding anniversary, Lovely relaxed setting. The food was lovely, flavourful and fresh as was the wine. A nice touch was a glass of fizz from the management :)

Thank S-Clensy
