Booked table, promptly seated. OK service, bit 'forgotten about' after seating, had to chase to have order taken (kids starving!) Food: fair choice, good roasts, nice beer. Nice busy but cosy atmosphere. Here for food only, did not stay over. Will return.

Visited the Dog with a colleague for lunch. Service very good and friendly treating you as a valued customer. Food excellent, I had chicken and ham pie which was individually made and my friend had a special sandwich. Ambience very welcoming, log fire especially pleasing on cold day. Only small fault was colleague sandwich came with mayonnaise when asked not... More

Great food and lovely service! We had the whole roast chicken for two which was extremely good value at under £10 each. There's a good range of beer and wine available, a large car park and they allow dogs in the bar area. Would highly recommend!

This is a place I never fancied going to although I have lived in the area all my life. We went a couple of weeks ago to see our granddaughter ride in the hunt and stayed for a sandwich which was very good. We have just been for Sunday Lunch, and it's the best one ever. The food, service and... More

On the spur of the moment we opted to leave the lamb chops in the fridge and booked a meal at our favourite tavern. Fantastic atmosphere ,very busy but they served us up with lovely food and great wine. The staff as usual were absolutely brilliant , attentive,and very competent. The only comment we have is the lack of light... More

Just back from an excellent evening at The Dog which is on our doorstep. The service was excellent with polite staff who were eager to please. A nice array of beers, friendly locals and a feel good factor that makes you want to return. A big pat on the back for the manager Keiran who made us very welcome. Thank... More

We have just returned from an excellent Sunday Lunch at the Dog. We have Sunday lunch at a lot of pub/restaurants in Cheshire but this is simply the best. We also took our dog which was nice. The atmosphere was very relaxing and made a wet drab Sunday more than bearable.

As the title says - Lamb shank & ribs were ordered - beautifully cooked & served promptly despite a full pub. Large portions meant we didn't need the side orders but homemade onion rings are just too tempting! Service was superb and the surroundings created for a very cozy evening. Ample parking & wifi were added bonus' Top marks all... More

Booked a table weeks in advance as it was a get together with a group of friends. When we arrived, the pub was packed and we ended up being squashed on a table which wasn't big enough. It took over an hour for the food to arrive and due to the pub being so full, the dishes came out at... More
