On a beautiful summers day, my wife and i chose to walk to the Wizards Inn for lunch from Alderley Ege village which is about a 30-40 min walk, all uphill and quite a dangerous one at that as the paths are narrow and close to the road and clearly this where the rich and famous can test the accelerator on their latest super car ! Anyway, we arrived in dire need of refreshment only to discover the pub did not open until 12.00, so we sat in their beautiful beer garden for 20 mins composing ourselves. When it did open we were greeted warmly and enjoyed a fine lunch with some refreshing drinks. All the staff were very good and it appeared a family run business. We were particularly impressed with the blonde haired lady(i never caught her name) who was perhaps the landlady. She was very polite and courteous at all times and her customer service as well as her staff was impeccable. Surprisingly it never got packed out on such a beautiful day but a few people did arrive before 12.00 and went off once they knew it was not open. This pub really misses a stronger customer base with such rigid opening times. Such a shame as it is steeped in history and has plenty to offer. Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed it and at least it was all down hill on the way back and we didn't get run over !
