Description: Cheshire village Tarporley, although not well known for ski slopes, is home to Piste Wine Bar and Restaurant. Owners James Hughes and his brother-in-law Paul Bebe explain that the name started off as a joke but soon seemed, with its cosy ski chalet associations, to represent the rustic friendly feel they had in mind for the restaurant. The pair pride themselves on modern European cuisine using only the best ingredients; the beef is sourced from Aberdeenshire, the lamb from the Welsh Valleys and the pork is all from Lincolnshire. The fish is delivered daily from the Cornish coast, and many of the other ingredients are sourced from within Cheshire. With its open fireplace and hunting trophies, Piste is decorated in a style that could be described as homey. The menu, too, features classic, tasty fare like slow roasted meats and fish and chips, and more adventurous palates will enjoy dishes like the Thai style crab cakes.

“Great restaurant offering varied menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Busy restaurant with two levels. Family enjoyed the visit with something suitable for everyone on the menu. Booking needed as quite popular and we could see why.

“A Great Meal- And Draught Veddett!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I visited this restauarant with a couple of friends the night before Valentine's Day. The atmosphere was friendly, modern and smart. We all ordered from the 'Early Herd' menu which was extremely good value. I had gravalax, duck and delicious ice cream/sorbet. It was all superb and served with a smile. Oh, did I mention that they had my favourite Belgian beer, Veddett, on draught?
Thoroughly recommended!

“Delicious good value food in quirky setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had a delicious dinner here - wonderful coley dish and fabulous sticky toffee pudding. Very delicious and well cooked artichoke and mushroom risotto. Lovely tables - the ones in the windows have high chairs and look out on to the lovely Tarporley High Street. Very slight snag in that the waitng time was very long - I think they may not have expected so many guests as it was a Tuesday night.
