Spent a couple of nights here as a base to attend Open golf at Hoylake and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Food was great particularly the top notch breakfast and Julie and her team were most welcoming, very efficient and a pleasure to deal with.

We recently had a lovely meal here and would highly recommend this place, the pub itself is well looked after and is picture postcard perfect. The place was busy but we were told that a table would be ready in a few minutes and it was, we were given menus promptly and our drinks order was taken quickly. After not... More

Location? none too busy A49 at the front with a large garden, lake, birdlife and long views at the back. Inside? the look and feel is traditional, cosy, country pub. Julie deserves a medal, she`s friendly, helpful and welcoming. We stayed one Saturday night, half way along Cycle Route 71 and stored our bikes in an outbuilding. Downstairs the pub... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Harry & Julie were wonderful and their staff so welcoming it was like visiting long lost friends. Found was really good, very generous portions. Watch out for the "Pudding Plank" - you have been warned! Would definitely stay here again & certainly recommend it to anyone.

Six of us stayed here for the weekend and had a great time. The bedrooms were lovely and had every facility. We had all our meals here including lunch and dinner. The food was delicious and with gorgeous home made bread.

We've driven past the Alvanley Arms hundreds of times and often commented that we should probably drop in one evening. Last night we finally decided to pop in for a quick meal as we fancied somewhere a little bit different. Rang at 6:45 to book a table for 8:30 - a very friendly lady answered the phone and assured me... More

We noticed this place by the fantastic floral display outside, this enticed us to stop and have lunch, we were both not very hungry, just wanted a snack. How annoying this was because the menu and meals looked lovely. We ordered a starter each and a pudding. My pate was served with local baked bread which was on sale at... More

Emma and I took our Easter break at this friendly and "home from home" Inn. The food is excellent, the atmosphere friendly and Harry and Julie, their team and their friends that frequent the bar, made for a wonderful break. It reminded us that you can have the best of accommodation as well as food but it means nothing without... More
