“Thought if try this place again...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The last time I visited here it was disastrous, but today I found the food, the service and general ambience to be much improved.

Perhaps the one comment worth mentioning to the chef is that the toasted bread in a starter was like leather... Other than that very pleasant.

“I wish it was like it was 15 to 20 years ago before brewers fayre ruined it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

A shock to the system, considering what a wonderful experience it was. Yes very pretty inside but no atmosphere just a glorified cafe with the same brewers fayre menu of defrosted frozen food and microwaved starters. A very big dusappointment. You used to have to book 3 weeks in advance to get a table if you were lucky. What a ruination of an establishment. Whitbread you should be ashamed of yourselfs for what you have done.

“Frozen service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The Frozen Mop is an apt name, because it accurately describes the chilly inattentive impersonal service. It really was not a busy afternoon - there were only four tables in use - but you could grow old waiting for the serving staff and why bother as they had all the personality of a frozen mop.

Our Steaks were served still pink in the middle, so we sent them back asking for them to be cooked through. The Cremated remains of the steaks were returned to us twenty minutes later.

So the service is chilly and slow, and the food is bog standard done poorly. But on the plus side the building is well decorated. But if you want anything more, look elsewhere.

“Nice Place”

Very pleasant and relaxed with an extremely comfortable sitting area quite seperate from the restaurant. Good and plentiful food at very reasonable prices.

“New favourite pub in Cheshire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Bit hard to find this, unless you know the countryside its set in.

The pub itself has been renovated in the last couple of years and is a really nice.

The lady who served us was polite and attentive.

The food was great (chicken and ham pie + a lunch time chicken and stuffing sandwich) although the chips came pre salted and were too salty. They replace them upon request though.

Roaring fires now on for the winter.
