“21st birthday meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had a fabulous evening at The Chesterfeilds for my daughters 21st birthday, 30 family and friends, everyone commented on the tasty food served, no shouting out of orders as the staff brought up the dishes they knew the first name of the diner, we sat upstairs comfy in our own area.
Looked after by a very attentive staff member, thank you ... We will see you again soon

Dear CarolB,
Thank you for your kind words.
Parties like yours are a pleasure to look after and I remember your visit well.
The area that you dined in is great for these occasions because yo are private but still collect the atmosphere from the restaurant below.
I'm glad you noticed our system of delivering plates to each guest without yelling out. It's a very simple system that other restaurants should follow in order to stop interrupting conversations.
We also look forward to seeing you soon.

“I wish this was my local!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This location and pub are beautiful, a real gem down the Cheshire country lanes.

Food is lovely and staff are friendly and helpful. They also have some great offers on that provide a great excuse to visit again!

The garden area is stunning, with a beautiful view of the countryside.

“Fav pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Thought I would write a review as I frequent this lovely pub fairly often with both family and friends. The atmosphere is fantastic and the selection of drinks is very impressive with something for everyone. The staff are just brilliant, very friendly!

It's great to see the cocktail menu launched as we've often enjoyed a cocktail or two in there from the superb Gaz, who's marvellous knowledge of the liquors and spirits means as he's got to know our favourite flavours he can make us up anything and we always love it! In fact we were gutted to see he wasn't on the bar last weekend (wasted talent!) and service seemed a bit slower. Great pub though!

Hi JadeD,
Well your obviously a fan of Gareths!
Firstly, thanks for your flattering comments regarding his cocktails. He is quite an assett to the team just like everyone else who works for us that you very kindly mentioned.
Sorry if you feel the service was slower on your last visit, it sound like we were very busy at the time. Sadly our 'wasted talent' (Gareth) needs his freetime to swot up on his cocktail knowledge! I believe that on this occasion when you visited he may have been out in town gathering practical knowledge 'cos he certainly wasn't that fast on Sunday morning!!!
Thanks again for your comments, Gareths seen this and is very grateful, as we are.
See you soon!

“What a great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Came upon this place by accident last night and we will certainly be back soon. The menu was diverse, good range of prices, gastro burger £10 to mature steak at £26, service was polite and swift and the atmosphere was relaxed and buzzy. Although it was a Friday night and very busy the place didnt feel cramped and loud it is roomy and uncluttered. A great place proving people will travel for good food and consistency.

Dear DianneW,
Well what can I say about this very professional review. Many of the key words you use are exactly what we drill into our team in training sessions.
By looking at some of the places you've travelled to and written reviews on it's a bigger compliment knowing that you have an obvious passion in dining out and passing on your honest and thoughtful feedback to others. Good or bad, this is exactly what Trip Advisor should be about.
Thanks very much and your welcome any time!

“Perfect Sunday Roast in the sunshine!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Came here yesterday for an early tea with my husband and toddler son. Everything was absolutely perfect! Service with a smile, delicious food(best roast dinner yet!) and beautiful location. We sat in the garden and were very well looked after. Staff made a fuss of our son which he loved.
The childs menu is great, healthy options and presented in a very appetising way (especially for fussy toddler)
Thank you for a wonderful evening! Can't wait to come back!
