“Fine food, great service and good fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Went to the clockworks by chance the other day. We were just on a drive and spotted it so decided to try it out. The lady behind the bar was smiley, witty and welcoming. We got to meet her partner later on who was equally as lovely. The food was really tasty with plenty of it and very reasonably priced. Overall it was a great evening and I will be informing all my friends to visit this little gem.

“Friendly local bar & restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We have eaten here a couple of times and always been very happy with the food and service. We also happened to be there the night the chef had walked out and had no complaints, yes we waited a little longer for our food to arrive, but this was explained to us and when the food did arrive we would have had no idea the chef had walked out! Delicious! We also visit the bar quite a few times a month to listen to the bands / artists that play and we especially like the table service for drinks - very nice touch. Several of our friends also visit the bar regularly. We find all the staff very approachable, friendly, helpful and will take the time to get to know their customers. We are very pleased this bar/restaurant is in Biddulph.

“Great Food! Great Service! Must Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Went to the clockworks last night after a couple of people recomended it, and I would definately recomend it to others. The food was exceptional and me and my partner will definately be going back to try something else as both our meals were beautiful and there was a large selection of belgium beers which my partner thoughroughly enjoyed. Most of all it was a great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and a lot of fun, always made sure we had drinks and everything was okay for us. The staff obviously have an eye for detail and quality when it comes to there food and service. Will definately be going back soon.

“worst meal ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Two slices of beef a dollop of mash and five or six tiny carrots and then stone cold Christmas pudding which we sent back and was returned still cold but in a hot bowl so that was ok then according to the waitress at a cost of £16. An evening for a party of twelve ruined by poor food and a rude waitress. We will never go again and will not recommend this place to anyone if you want a nice evening go elsewhere.

“Un - cheery Christmas”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

I am sad to say that on Saturday 15th Dec we went to Clockworks for our Christmas do. There wasn't a sign of Christmas, no crackers, cranberry sauce or tinsel or festive music!12 members of staff paying £18.95 a head for small starters, one hour wait for main course without explanation until asked. Food prepared by "unqualified friend" and although we felt sorry for the co owner who served us, I expected an apology for the wait and maybe a gesture of goodwill.
As many of our party had issues with the meal eg some food uncooked, some food burned and some cold, we would have expected the co owner to be more hospitable. She was brusque and her facial expressions made us feel that it was us who were in the wrong.
Sorry but the experience was not good and I wil not be giving a good review to friends , family and colleagues.
