“Happy Walkers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

There were 11 of us that had been walking in Delamere Forest and I'd only booked a table for 8 but they accommodated us and the 3 dogs without hesitation. The place was busy but they still managed to serve us all together with lunch at the same time. I had the beetroot & salmon risotto which was tasty and most of the group had the light bites which they seemed happy with. They then allowed us to pay separately at the til which helped as no one then had to take charge of the bill. Will go back happily after a group walk.

“Party of 6”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Nothing to dislike. Food and service excellent and good atmosphere (if slightly noisy) but our party enjoyed a really good Saturday night - will definetly return.

“Mothering Sunday.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

After hearing great reviews about this place I rang a couple of weeks in advance to be sure to get a reservation. The Goshawk is a typical country pub, welcoming and traditional décor. It wasn't as busy I thought it would be as we went on Mothers Day. Our table was at the back of the room which was fine for us with a view of the bowling green. There were lots of tables empty around us. Staff were friendly and helpful. Are table was booked for 6pm and when I checked out the menu online it did say that it only served roast dinners until 6pm but the waiter who sat us at our table told us what the specials were and that roast were still available. We all had the roast sirloin of beef having seen the huge Yorkshire pudding on top of it as we entered the pub minutes earlier. The roast was flavour sum and plenty of vegetables to go with it. For puddings we had eton mess, chocolate brownie and the cheese board along with coffees. Overall I would say that the meal was lovely. I will pop in again if I am in the area.

“Wouldn't return & poor menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Went here with 8 friends and the service was slow, we waited 45mins for someone to come and take our order, then another 45mins for the food to come and even then side orders were missed off.
The menu here is very strange and I struggled to choose something, Beetroot risotto seemed to be on the menu about 4 times with different dishes?!

“Another lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Arrived about 4pm for an early tea with family who were visiting. Welcome was good, staff very attentive and friendly. Food was very good too. There is an excellent range of food available with interesting starters, lots of fish, tasty risottos and all the pub classics. One of our favourite places to eat in the area.
