We drove past this place and it looked lovely on the outside and in. The service we received was terrible. There is a huge difference in how families are treated to couples. We got a poor selection of vegetables, we didn't get table service, no one came to ask if we were ok, no one said thank you or good... More

Our FAVOURITE local eatery. We visit on a regular basis. Best quality food in the area including the best "Fish & Chips" anywhere. Sunday roast is also a big favourite. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Good well kept beer.

On our many visits to the Davenport Arms we are always given a warm welcome. The food is of excellent quality , and the beer is kept well!! I would say this is one of the best places to dine out within the Macclesfield area !! One to try and highly recommended !!

My fiancé's dad took us here for our evening meal last night (08/03/14) and was looking forward to it having heard him say how good the place was. A cosy country pub with an invitingly warm atmosphere as soon as you walk in is always a winner in my book. Our table had been reserved beforehand which I would advise... More

Looking for a very enjoyable meal near Congleton/Macclesfield then The Davenport Arms will not be a disappointment. Only been for lunch on a few occasions when we have been in the area and always enjoyed. Last time we went the place was packed! Warm and friendly welcome, relaxing ambience, food both good quality and value..what more can you ask for?... More

We have been to the Davenport several times, staff are polite and friendly. The food on this occasion was again delicious, both starters and mains, the portions are generous. There is a good atmosphere. We were a large party andn the service was prompt. Will definitely go back.

We were recommended the Davenport Arms by friends - so off we set today, with the wind and the rain (and a tree down on the main road on our way home) to the Davenport Arms. First impressions - friendly, relaxed atmosphere with lovely ladies behind the bar. Shown straight to our table (we had booked) and the whole experience,... More

We had an excellent 3 course meal here. My wife and I have regularly driven past but never stopped. I'm very glad we did on this occasion. The food was perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. I feel that we shall visit more frequently and would recommend The Davenport to all.

Decided to book as we had heard reviews about the davenport arms. We ordered a starter and a main, the starter arrived and was ok and so on to the main, and to be honest we just had gammon which was ok, served with an egg or pineapple or both. Pet hate of mine is finger marks on plates but... More

We thought as a family we would try somewhere different. The food - you cannot criticise, but the 'off hand' service of the owners was a little annoying and there was no atmosphere or ambience at all. We might as well have been eating the meal in an empty pub. The owners were more concerned with keeping the locals happy.... More
