Service was brilliant, especially Mitch! He was very welcoming, informative & ensured we had everything we needed. The food was lovely, although a bit more expensive than the previous menu which was 241 (& a better menu) but overall a lovely meal.

Visited yesterday for Mothers Day. Beautifully decorated, amazing food, and friendly attentive staff. What more do you need. We last visited a few weeks before Christmas. What a vast improvement on the old 241 menu. The chicken oven impressed the kids greatly.

Service very bad if more than four people are not allowed to sit together. Manager adamant that groups must sit separately so why not tell folk when they book that you don't like groups of people. Food took over an hour to arrive. 14 of our group will never darken their doors again and we will pass on our thoughts

I visited the Crewe and Harpur pub with my boyfriend in March 2015. We arrived at 3.30pm for a late lunch and were left waiting to be seated for several minutes, despite many waiting staff repeatedly walking past us. When we were eventually seated, we looked over the new menu and couldn't decide what to have as it was all... More

So, as a local we disregarded either eating or drinking here for a couple of years before the refurb - went for a meal tonight - ok the new staff are so accommodating and helpful but unfortunately the food is no better. We had steak which was flavourless And wine overpriced! So overall staff = Excellent and food = dismal... More

Booked for one night stay. On arrival was given key to room and left to our own devices. Room was ok, reasonable standard of cleanliness for pub accommodation. No milk and sugar on condiments tray so had to ask for some. Food was usual pub fayre. Service a bit slack. Staff seemed over stretched. Was surprised that there didn't seem... More
