“Wonderful location, easy parking and friendly team, perfect for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Sunday lunch after an excellent family party the evening before was the perfect solution to feeling slightly jaded. The Rams Head provided the answer in the best way, with easy parking in a picturesque location close to the church (check out Lewis Carol's Cheshire Cat below the window) and the canal. There were specials on available, along with the basic carvery menu, which was plumped for by the four of us, as well as a light bite menu and also a separate offer with a good selection of meals. The carvery hit the spot, with a warming leek and pea soup, warm baguettes and 'proper' butter (not in foil pats), The meats were turkey, ham and beef which were cooked well and a great selection of vegetables which suited all our pallettes. Two courses for £14.95 was reasonable for a good wholesome meal, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Replete, we walked around the village of Grappenhall, vowing to return before too long.

“Much Improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We live very locally to the village and were firm fans of The Parr Arms in its day. When The Ram's Head first opened we gave it a try and were continually disappointed. Being in need of a walkable eatery we've tried the place again several times recently and have found it very much improved. The steaks are lovely and the curry night on a Tuesday at £9.95 for two is excellent value. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful plus, if you're lucky, you can sit in the cozy leather chairs afterwards to finish your wine!

“Friendly staff but food just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Visited for Sunday lunch with all 5 of us having the carvery set menu for £14.95.

The starters of Pate and Fishcakes were both good enough but the main carvery was nothing special. The selection of veg was good, but they were all far too salty. The meats were also OK but we have had much better before.
Deserts were also average with the chocolate cake nothing to write home about.

The pub itself is nice as well as the staff who were always helpful. With with an improvement in the food it would be worth visiting again.

“Traditional British pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Visited after winter walk and loved cosy atmosphere with a real fire! Coffee and food served as well as the usual range of drinks. Very comfortable armchairs and sofas. You could stay all afternoon!!!

“Must try harder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Lovely pub both inside and out but having eaten here twice recently the food is nothing more than average. Shame really as it has everything else.
