Pre theatre meal

Visited on way to Gawsworth Hall theatre. Staff were very friendly and our meals arrived promptly in time for us to be in our seats for curtain up. There is a very good menu to satisfy every one.

Had lunch here, again, its so good. Their light lunches are perfect, medium sized freshly cooked fish and chips and mushy peas. All very tasty and portion size perfect. Then a coffee, piping hot with plenty of hot milk as ordered. Have been here many times and never been disappointed. Personally, I think there is plenty of choice on the... More

Very poor meal, very slow service - no attention to detail or customer service. Certainly will not return and cannot recommend. A great shame as it's in a lovely area, easily accessible with good sized car park. A huge disappointment !!

Hi Thank you for your recent review and a shame you didn't particularly enjoy as we have so many very satisfied customers. I will highlight your points to the chef. Our home made chips are renowned however the season for chipping potatoes and roasting isn't great just at the moment and so they are not to our usual delicious standard.... More

Our first visit here was a very busy Sunday lunchtime. Fortunately we had booked otherwise I don't think they could have accommodated us. Although it was full the room and staff handled it very well and the atmosphere was comfortable. We were asked very quickly for our drinks order and they arrived promptly. Menus were not exciting but there was... More

I don't normally review local restaurants, however having been here a couple of times over the last few months and been so impressed with the food and service decided to recommend it. The menu is varied and is complimented with a specials board, the quality of the food is top class and well portioned. Service is always relaxed and timely... More
