My wife and I having both worked late decided to eat out and elected to visit an old favourite of ours, the welcome was very nice and we were served drinks and shown... More

Had a wedding to attend up the road at Rowton Castle and found this little gem 3 miles up the road. Lovely warm welcome upon arrival and it kept just getting better. Our room was spacious and well appointed and even though it was directly over the bar the sounds reaching us were not overly intrusive. Breakfast was well worth... More

We were recommended the Hand and Diamond whilst down here on a weekend break and it surpassed any expectations we had. From the staff to the food to the bill i was very happy. I had the mixed grill and its by far the largest meal i have had in a long while. Not only was it 'man sized' but... More

We have visited the 'hand in diamond' several times every time we are racing at the very nearby Loton park hillclimb. This time, more than ever, was superb....all of our table of 11 were well fed and at an extremely reasonable cost....I think the whole food bill was about £150 with 11 mains & 4 desserts! A special mention for... More

We recently visited the Old Hand and Diamond during a stay in the local area. All of the staff were very friendly and the general atmosphere was very welcoming. The food was of a good quality and clearly using local produce. The portions are large - I had the seafood risotto which could easily have fed two people. The prices... More
