A Good Lunch Spot

Lovely, old pub set in the heart of Knutsford. Food interesting and good value. Would visit again as the staff are very accommodating and dog-friendly. Also, it's a quick walk from the carpark.

Have eaten here several times, but lunch to day was exceptional. The roast beef was cooked beautifully and served pink. The real star of the show was the new refurbishment, really nice dining area and my wife very much appreciated the new ladies loos!

Great venue and great location. The building is superb, food was brilliant but service just spoilt our atmosphere. Staff: We should have known what to expect when the monotone waitress told she was serving us for the evening. She was really not happy. Don't expect a service with a smile. Some of the staff weren't old enough to be up... More

What a perfect setting for Sunday lunch. This is a Pub/Chophouse situated right in the middle of the lively town of Knutsford. The walls are covered in oil painting creating a very characterful pub. The food and service were absolutely spot on, with the roast beef being the star of the show on our visit. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Chateaubriand . Not something I would normally risk ordering at £55 for 2 but it was cooked to perfection. Excellent service. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

One ordered the monkfish curry and one ordered the chicken and churritzo pie. The fish and chips arrived and it was small fish portions, not really a fish and a... More

I found myself in Knutsford with my wife and son and we decided to get something to eat. The best option for a "pub" ,meal seemed to be this establishment (according to Tripadvisor). First impressions seemed pretty good, nice looking, real ales, fair number of staff, not kept waiting when we first arrived. Sadly it was downhill all the way... More

Four friends met for dinner. Booking was quick & easy with many time options available. Lots of choice on menu, good wine selection ( wine more exoensive than some other restaurants in town) We had hanging kebabs & pork. All very tasty with accompaniments. Service was quick & friendly and the food arrived in good times puddings were nice too.... More
