“Absolutely Tremendous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We were looking for a place close to the Manchester Airport to grab a bite to eat - what a tremendous restaurant. The food was phenomenal and the service impeccable. This was by far the best dining experience I've had while visiting England and at a price that I thought was reasonable. If you're there and looking at the menu, the spring roll appetizer and sticky toffee pudding dessert are absolute musts.

“Always pleasant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Having frequented this establishment several times since it's refurbishment I am surprised to read other patrons opinions of Karen,the landlady.I have always found her to be very helpful and extremely pleasant and can't understand the negative comments from the occasional one-off visitors.I can't understand why certain people have returned to the Tatton Arms when they supposedly had such a dreadful experience the first time.Nice food,friendly bar staff and very clean.Highly recommended and will definitely visit again.

“im a finicky sod, but six things were delivered, and even tho it was easy to forget one of them, the chef didnt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

about a two years ago, i found out the tatton was undergoing a refurb. i bumped into Karen at the local shops ( the landlady) and said id go in. 2 yrs later when a friend was going on holiday, and id look after the cats, we found ourselves in the "tatton Arms". quiet, almost secluded for a clandestine assignation, which this wasnt. i was giving confidence to my closest allie in life to her prospect of visiting India to roll out a project. immediately, we had attention from a member of the bar staff, who gave us sufficient instruction as to where we cud eat, as well as the menu. i was well up for a steak and my gf wasnt up for me having one, such is my critical nature. everywhere i go, the meat is tough with medium rare, so u end up sucumbing to the delights of animals less looked after. most of the time i wont eat whats put infront of me. the stress of an animal, being catapultaed into death, from its survival area of the brain which it exists upon, to being scaared and defenseless, is down to how it is killed. i asked karen at the end of the meal did she source meat local, and i believe the spongey red meat cheffed by a knowledgable chef, cooked the locally looked after by the farmer, that IS GOOD. and i have to say, the five items on my plate, were perfectish. The peas, guess what? u could taste them. i always judge a restaurant on the veg. and this was perfect, seasoned too. mushroom juicy, not over done with butter, tho i suspect with oil and butter. which is great. for the price. the chips, were if any chef knows, are the harness for most opinions. Super crispy, and not filling the plate. the tomatoes filled a seven vine, and hed placed them on the same grill for a little bit long, nonetheless, timing is everything and i had barbq toms that reminded me of a memory. maybe i was letting him off, but i doubt that. Every good chef knows they control the financial strings of a restaurant. there is alot arnd, with budweiser palates, if this "advertised" as pub grub, loses their chef, food will go down. my partner had a burger, with fries. it was super, yet he used iceberg lettuce i wud have used little gem.More presentation. tho coleslaw was homemade - can you ask for more!

i have looked at previous nonsense reports of this lovely food restaurant, and those which can find as many tiny faults as me would i think, be classed as vultures only taking satisfaction over a bag of monster munch served amongst the other creatures in their WAKE!

if anyone wishes to call upon my judgement, i would like them to try.

This is by far one of the most pleasurable food experiences ive had for along day! to get all things right altho, a steak dinner, enormously satisfying, and HATS OFF TO THE KITCHEN! KEEP IT GOING!

I shall b visiting soon. xx - for more delicious food.

P.S- in the not to distant future i will bring some much more critical people than me. ive already told them of your ability, so dont mess up!
