Four of us traveled by train to Mouldsworth and enjoyed a delicious meal at The Goshawk. It is just outside the station, so is a perfect venue when meeting friends from Chester. The menu is fairly extensive and is changed regularly. The wine list has a good range of wines and the service is smiley and friendly - mostly young... More

We visited The Goshawk after a lengthy absence and we were delighted with the experience. Welcomed at the door by smiling staff, that's always a good start, and we were waited on with drinks whilst waiting for our lunch guest. The menu was a delight as nearly everything we liked was on it. As it was lunch time I settled... More

Really enjoyed our meal at the Goshawk. I had the fish dish of the day and it was delicious. The service was very good and menu a bit different.

Went for dinner with friends. The fish and chips was a very large portion, and the batter was light and crispy - delicious. However the steak was tough which was disappointing. Quite noisy because of the wooden floor. Obliging staff and a good atmosphere.

Great meal Goshawk style. Great to see Paul back, wonderful to see him engaging with customers who have missed him, a real talent when you normally have lots of student staff just passing through. It's great to see a welcoming nice guy in action.

We won't be going again. We purposefully booked an early meal 18.30 so the Kitchen was not under any pressure and when we arrived, that was the case. We ordered the Tiger Prawns as a starter in Red Thai sauce. The Prawns came with the heads on in a rather thick sauce without any finger bowl ? I mention this... More

We thought we would try this pub on a sunny Saturday afternoon in April. It was fairly quiet for a Saturday and I can understand why now given the quality of the food. I had a Caesar salad - pretty hard to get wrong you would think - but they managed it. For some reason it had a honey mustard... More

Situated within a stone's throw of Delamere Forest, this place stands out above the rest. The staff are brilliant, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent food, reasonable prices, lovely atmosphere. It's family friendly but you can always find a quiet corner if you wish. Highly recommended.

We visited on a weekday evening as a couple and although it was a nice evening, certainly wasn't a great one (no offence, hubbie!). The staff were friendly enough but I did think the atmosphere was lacking a bit, despite being around 80% full. I had a mushroom starter which was good, but ordered tuna nicoise salad for main and...
