Hidden gem

This little pub could not be in a better location. High above the hills the views are fantastic and a welcome retreat for walkers. Food wise slightly mixed views, the first time we went had a fantastic meal and the portions if you have a healthy appetite were enormous. Second time we went it was... read more

I went here last night with my partner for the first time in a long time, knowing it had changed hands but encouraged by its many adverts on local radio. I chose the Retro Chicken and Chips, I am not sure if the resulting 3 fried drumsticks had such a strange texture because they had been previously frozen or becaue... More

Lovely new restaurant and decking looking out across to valley to Jodrell bank and "the rocket" on the hills. Great food... very generous portions, friendly, helpful staff, quaint bar. The old stone steps down to the restaurant from the bar were not so good for my elderly parents, but the effort was worth it. Outside toilets were spotless.

Whilst we've been past many times, it had been a while since we last called in, however on this occasion there seemed plenty of space in the car park early one sunny Saturday evening. Nice relaxed drink and then 'ducking our heads' into the dining area, for a lovely 2 course meal. It would of been 3 in many places,... More

Great view from new extended decking on a sunny day. Trying to be a gastro pub which it is not ,pricey for small portions of key ingredients of the dish with large amounts of bread to pad out dish. Service so slow even view started to lose its attractiveness! Get another pair of hands asp to take ordering and serving... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, although we are somewhat confused about your comments, you do not actually say what dish you had making it difficult for us to explore it in any depth, so we would like to address them individually. 1. We have always been a country pub serving pub food with a... More

Stunning location, and the new balcony outside makes the most of the astounding views. Perfect place for a sunny Sunday lunch. Grab a table on the balcony and don't let it go!

A memorable visit for good and bad reasons. We had booked a table on a Saturday evening for a special meal with son and daughter-in -law. When we arrived it was busy and quite noisy inside and after ordering food we decided to sit outside in the peace and quiet and enjoy the view. We were treated to a beautiful... More

We called for lunch after walking around Macclesfield Forest. As it was a nice day we sat around back in the 'new' section which provided a great view of the Chesire countryside (this being a relative 'high spot' in Chesire!). Warning to the wise it is a little exposed so can get windy making eating out something of a challenge.... More

We went here to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. I rang ahead and booked a table and was given one right in front of the large window in the dining area, so we had a magnificent view over the Cheshire Plain and surrounding hills. The food was very nice and yes it was a little more on the pricey end of... More
