We were visiting the area during a mid week working break and found The Davenport Arms by chance. The landlord and staff were friendly and efficient and we were made to feel welcome immediately. The curry meals were delicious as were the desserts. The atmosphere was very congenial and the whole bar area looked very inviting and cosy. We had... More

Pleasant enough place good beer. Enjoyable starters. Main courses varied. Duck tough and stringy Lamb ok but had better Deserts no problem. Staff pleasant and helpful. Would visit again if we were in the area but would be very selective and careful with respect to choice from the menu.

However, on our last visit in July 2015 we had Sunday lunch sat in the garden. The service was good as usual, but we were really disappointed in the food! I had... More

Turned up and ordered 2 Coke's. We specifically requested no ice in either drink which the waitress acknowledged but both drinks turned up a couple of minutes later half filled with ice. Not the best of starts but they were quick to swap the drinks over. All food was lovely except for the Davenport burger which although was freshly made... More

We chose the peppered steak pie with potatoes and vegetables. We don't eat green vegetables due to our medical condition, only choice available was carrots.then... More

We called for Sunday lunch after a leisurely drive round the beautiful Cheshire countryside. The atmosphere was good, the service was fine, the food was nicely cooked and well presented. All in all would have been excellent but let down by the lack of hot water in the toilets.

Hi Thank you for your review, and pleased you enjoyed your lunch and that we could fit you in. You did mention the water when you were in and we looked into it and the timer seemed to be out, so thank for pointing it out. Not sure it was worthy of a mention on Trip advisor as you had... More

Consistently home made moreish food that you would expect from a thriving pub and restaurant within a quaint village, recurrent seasonal pleasures teamed with unusual ideas that they aren't afraid to try! Guided by the owners all the staff work very hard as a team, genuinely caring about each customers experience there and it really shows! much love "Table 24"
