From its understated location, the wonderful recreational area behind the pub, to the exuberantly friendly service and the top notch F&B standards, this excellent gastro pub scored top marks in every category when we popped in without a reservation for an impromptu Sunsday supper a couple of weeks ago. Starters were super, but the mains we chose - whole Dover... More

We visited twice during our week in Chester having been given good reports. We were not disappointed, the service was excellent, with zero fuss made when our daughter accidentally knocked her drink over, the mess was cleared up and a replacement given for free. The food on both occasions was excellent in both choice and quality, the chef happily obliged... More

This pub is a little gem hidden in the sleepy Cheshire countryside village of Mouldsworth. At least five real ales on tap most days and the food is nothing but exceptional. A Good time to visit is lunchtime when they have thier reduced price lunch menu which food wise is just as good as the main menu but cheaper.

Friendly welcome. We always get asked if the dog would like a biscuit and water, and thats usually before we order. Excellent fish pie piping hot and huge portion. Don't have a starter or you'll not finish your main course. Love the selection of beers. My wife had ham and chips and a cider, thoroughly enjoyed it. Our order was... More

Having had the Goshawk on my list of "must visit" restaurants I'm not totally convinced it fully met my expectations. Staff were friendly enough. The decor and ambience were ok but I have to say I have eaten elsewhere for less and had meals of equal or better quality. Perhaps I was expecting too much

I thought hard about writing this review as The Goshawk has always been a firm favourite of both my husband and I but we feel after our last visit it somewhat lacks. We went for lunch last week and sat outside enjoying the weather. Although the quality of the food was very good and presented very well as always, we... More
