I live very close to the Cheshire Cat and have eaten there many times. The location and decor are lovely and the staff very friendly and polite. However I have to say that the food has become very mediocre. Over priced, small portions and tasteless. I had the hunters chicken and the chips and peas which accompanied it were obviously frozen not fresh. The chicken breast was small and over cooked as was the bacon and cheddar cheese was non existent. This makes the last three visits disappointing and we just wanted to give it one more chance really. Fortunately there are other far better eateries locally so am afraid we will definitely not be eating there again. Such a shame as used to be so good but these days value for money and good food are paramount.
