I was over joyed to hear that Panacea had burnt down for the second time (hoping this time it would stay closed) unfortunately they seem to be rebuilding it. Panacea always seemed to sues trouble of some sort in Alderley edge. Atmosphere once inside is horrible, loud and intimidating. The door staff were amongst the rudest I've ever encountered..

I am not one for being impressed by celebrity and neither have I repeatedly chosen to eat here in order to look at those who court it. I have found it a fantastic restaurant to stop for lunch on the frequent Sunday's that I drive from Manchester to London. I usually catch them as they open the doors and the... More

This is a very good restaurant. It is not prentious as it does not pretend to be an overated expensive gastronomic experience, nor does it churn out plain tasteless pub food.The food is imaginately different without being weird (bring back the specials).The alcohol is no more expensive than any other modern bar and the cocktail selection is pretty reasonable ....

Food was ok when it eventually arrived, club sandwich but very cold on arrival although chips were hot, large meal for the price but of course drinks are pricey I quite like it here but just wish it could lose some of its pretentiousness, if it did and attracted a few more customers the atmosphere would be better. Ps turn... More

Went to the late night bar for the first time this weekend - wasn't impressed considering everything I've read about Panacea being THE spot to go. It's a busy place, music isn't great but one thing fo r sure - the cocktail menu is excellent (if pricey!!) Upstairs is poorly designed and difficult to get through the bar. The bar... More

We visited Alderly edge last night with friends, we were in couples and all very well dressed. The lads all had shirts and trousers on , the girls in classy dresses, yet we were turned away by the arrogant door man!! We are all in our 30's and NEVER been turned away from anywhere. Yet the group of lads behind... More

If you like to be treated dreadfully for the privelege of sharing the space with a few overpaid footballers and their hangers on, this is the place for you. The staff are rude beyond belief and treat you as though you are lucky to have been allowed in. Manhandling (bordering on assault) by the bouncers is common-place in the bar... More

Dined here in september with 4 girlfriends. Had a great evening with fabulous food and service. Everyone very friendly. We did wait over 3/4 hour for our table , that had been booked one month previously, but the excellent food made up for this.. Went upstairs to the bar later . Loud music, dim lighting, if i have to say... More

They have parking! a big plus in Alderley. Outside seating with massive umbrella's with heaters should it get a bit nippy. Only had a champagne and a wine but the service was good, the drinks nice and cold. People were eating but we moved on, I will do the review on the food next time when for sure we will... More

THE most pretentious place I have ever been, dont get me wrong the dining experience is fabulous food and service both excellent, but the people especially the women, well most of them look like they are in bad drag and even when my husband got 'hit on' and he kindly pointed out that he was with his wife (me) she...
