New bar staff seemed to ignore customers waiting and just chatted themselves,very rude.... There given an impression of trashy and untidy. We will not be returning there again,shame really as we where regular customers and always enjoyed going... More

We had planned to visit Boughton House and we like to combine a nice lunch in to our day out so turned to trusty TA to find a restaurant not too far from Boughton. Although this restaurant was about 8 miles from B.H. we chose it on the strength of other reviewers and they are not wrong. There are about... More

This restaurant is becoming one of my favourites. It's generally full, but the food never disappoints and the staff provide a great service. I'd always book in advance as their week night offers mean it's busy most nights

My husband booked a table for us to have some desserts this evening. We let the lady on the phone know and all was fine. We arrived 5 minutes before our booking and were greeted by a lovely woman. We sat down with a menu and decided what we would like. It took 25 minutes for us to be seated.... More

The Palmichael was my choice of local restaurant to celebrate my sisters birthday..so no pressure then! But not to worry as the evening was a great success. The atmosphere was very welcoming and surprisingly busy as it was mid week. We chose our meals from the a la carte menu which proved a little difficult as we all wanted to... More

This a very good authentic Italian eatery offering excellent lunchtime budget deals and a romantic evening venue with an adequate menu and good service. One not to be missed
