“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We hadn't visited the Netherton for a number of years but decided to see if had improved. On the positive side, it is an attractive venue with a terrace on which to enjoy a warm evening and the Sauvignon Blanc was good. Unfortunately Lees beers, I find to be among the blandest I have ever tasted and this is from someone who grew up on Greenhall Whitley bitter. Forty minutes after ordering I asked for an update on the order to be informed that, although it had been put into the computer, it had "not gone through". I would have expected an establishment that cared about its reputation to have been offering a complimentary drink or sweet having made a gaffe of this dimension. Fifteen minutes later the order appeared: a reasonable curry with a small amount of rice and a greasy poppadom along with a rather tasteless flatbread with tomato and mozzarella. Disappointing and expensive for the pub food it was. There are plenty of good places to eat in Frodsham and I am surprised to find this one still open.

“Good for a lazy lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The food is OK. The service can be hit and miss. At times it is quite slow but if you are not in a hurry it is fine. It can be a bit pricey for what you get. The £10 burger is served here!

It is very clean and the facilities and surroundings are lovely. We usually stop off here once a week for a drink in the beer garden.

“Nice place shame about the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I have eaten here on and off over the years and have always thought that the surroundings, atmosphere and food combined merited the quite high prices for what is no more than pub food. Our latest visit though was very disappointing. I ordered goats cheese tart which was basically a pastry case with large chunks of melted goats cheese and a bit of onion, really dry. Strangely enough for £12 i do expect evidence of a bit of preparation. The side salad was a couple of lettuce leaves and raw onion. My friend had the haloumi frittata which looked very unappetising in both presentation and colour - just an unidentifiable pile of something on the plate. At £5.95 each we were hoping the desserts might be an improvement but no. I ordered the Jamaican brioche which apparently was laced with rum and contained exotic fruits but it was completely tasteless, more like a very bland summer fruit pudding. My friend ordered white choc bread and butter pudding but there was no evidence of white choc and it was really dry, looked nothing like b&b pudding. We mentioned our disappointment to the waiter but he didn't seem interested. No I won't be returning to eat here.
