always good atmosphere when we have been. Both meals tasty. And dessert shated also very tasty. Service good as usual. I ordered a local beer but it didn't taste as I had expected and when I queried this the staff immediately offered to change. It wasn't billed for which I had half expected. So... read more

We visited The Goshawk on our last night of our holiday and we all thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. The staff were all very attentive and helpful. There was a wide choice of food which catered for the mixed needs of our party ranging from a 9 year old through to my parents in their 80s (including... More

Eaten and drunk at the Goshawk several times. Fantastic pub, great staff, excellent beers and lovely beer gardens so please can the management take a close look at the quality of the food? It's quality is not as good as I suspect they think it is and it most definitely not value for money! Look carefully at several other reviews... More

I booked a table online for 7.30 on Friday night. We arrived 5 minutes early to be told they were getting the table ready. No probs, we sat at the bar to have a drink. After approx 15 mins no one had come to take us to our table so my husband asked how long we were going to be,... More

As regular visitors, we knew that the quality of the food would be excellent and as usual it was. One member of staff (Tom) was excellent and attentive, as in fairness all the staff were. What spoilt the evening was waiting for a table we had booked. We arrived five minutes early for the booking and waited 30 minutes from... More

Arrived early evening and the pub was very quiet, however the waiter/bar man was very attentive and quickly seated us and gave us a menu. The draft beer was very nice and the place had a nice ambiance, even though it was very early. Our meals were served swiftly and were piping hot and delicious, we also had desserts, probably...

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

Booked a table for four and overall we enjoyed the experience at the Goshawk, which is situated surrounded by beautiful countryside. The greeting and service throughout was very good, they have a good menu and as a whole we enjoyed the food especially the mains and desert. Our only grumble was during the starters, two of the group had a... 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.
