“3.5 tops”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Like many places that are over-rated IMHO, the setting and ambience of this restaurant are superb. I believe that this has the effect of fooling the diner into thinking that they're getting food of a higher quality than they really are. Don't get me wrong, you can't fault it a great deal, it just doesn't warrant the substantial price tag being asked for. For anyone to say that the food was very good or superb, I would question how many truly first-class restaurants they had been to, but in the gastro-pub infested world in which we now live, you can't complain too much.

“Superb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Have been there on a few occasions and can honestly say its good! The food itself is superb and it seems you are never rushed. The staff are very polite and friendly and nothing seems to be a problem to them. The steak and rib platter is a absolute gem...and the puds are ace too!. Give it a try...I would say its one of the best if not the best in Cheshire!

“Fantastic food as usual and packed on a Sunday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Glad to see the diners club offer back on for a Sunday!
Booked for a Sunday for 2 of us and the place was packed - good to see.
I get the diners club email through each month so it was buy one main course and get the second free! Fab deal love it! Still had to have the combo starter though as its amazing.
Look forward to going back again -and again!

“Spoilt for choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Lovely relaxed atmosphere whilst still very busy on a Saturday night. The menu is extensive with a good range of tex mex, steaks, Thai and fusion food. Portions are good. service was fine but not brilliant - had to ask for the dessert menu. Meat could be more tender - beef can be tough and lamb was ok. Thai lamb was with tons of onions, no peppers, etc. Cocktails are expensive and full of ice - profit margins must be huge on drinks - shame as would have liked to try one or two more, but at £6.95 for a glass of ice, rum and lime - went on to beer. All in all an enjoyable ambience but not fine dining and expensive with the drinks.
