Not the best

Have reviewed previously stating the service was great, and I still agree with this. However we were really unhappy with the food on this visit. My Sea bass (which by the way was almost £14) portion was small, cold and came without the tenderstem broccoli it stated it did on the menu. My boyfriends... read more

I visited The Cheshire Cat and sat outside in the sun which was lovely. Ordered food and that's when the problems started. The battered mushrooms were served on a lettuce leaf that had black flies crawling on it, enough to put you off eating. The prawn cocktail was served on a plate, with virtually no marie- rose sauce and on... More

We had spent the day at the Cheshire farm ice cream parlour and stopped here on our way home. There was a good choice on the menu for two adults and two young children. The food was brought out promptly and was enjoyed by all four of us. The waiter was very attentive and the bill was reasonable for what... More

My partner and I went to the Cheshire Cat on a Friday evening for dinner; we are local and have visited the Cheshire Cat many times over the years - sometimes it's very nice, most of the time it's OK and this time, it was below average. On arrival, we sat at a table in a quieter part of the... More

Called in on the way home from Liverpool Airport. So glad we did. Delicious food, quick service, nice gardens and inside decor. Also the peanut cheesecake was to die for! Would definitely return.

It is several years ago since we last visited the Cheshire Cat and it appears to have an compete overhaul. We had initially called in for a drink whilst walking along the canal, but decided to stay and eat. The overall experience was a refreshing change. It was a Saturday and they had a steak special £20 for 3 courses... More

We visited for our daughters 18th birthday after a family day out on bank holiday Sunday. When I made the initial booking I spoke to a very helpful member of staff, who seemed genuinely interested and wanted to make our visit special. We were a party of 16, aged from 6-75, there was something for everyone on the menu. The... More

Me and my partner visited here for the first time in years and we were not disappointed. I had chicken forestiere and my partner had seared salmon. Both meals were very well cooked and presented. The service we got off Kriss was brilliant, he could not do enough for us despite being very busy. We will be visiting again soon.

Been here before but not done a review. We remembered how lovely it was and once again stopped off from our usual drive from Birmingham to Wirral. Lovely location and always lovely food. I had fish pie which was brimming with lots of different types of fish. I also got to have some batter off my partners fish, lovely and... More

Popped in for a late lunch at 2.30. Asked if we could grab a table and high chair. Tokd we could. Sat looking at menus. Went to order and told the kitchen had been shut. Frustrating.
