What a find, we stumbles upon the Inn, midweek at lunchtime. A good looking place, which stands alone surrounded by countryside views. Very good car parking. Inside, modern country, low ceilings, beams and a large working open fire, its warms the place and give that special glow. The food was good, well presented and just the right portions. The staff...

Mum and nanny took me to the windmill on Monday 14th and I do have to say you can't get a better pub nearby. Had the Lamb which literally fell off the bone as I lifted it up!! The chefs in this pub must be exceptional. Seriously amazing! Lovley friendly management...Even if George wore a shirt that was too tight.

Called in for Sunday lunch and I must say the best piece of beef I have tasted in a very long time, and quite reasonable prices

My first ever visit, we called in for lunch to break up a walk along the nearby canal which you can exit eight hundred yards or so north of the Adelphi Mill. Inside it is spacious, tables not too close together, pastel décor and clean. We had butties for lunch which, although a little pricey, were well filled and came... More

Went here with the family today and it was just great. The staff were spot on and the food was spot on. Really impressed. It's got the approach at atmosphere just right. If you read this guys...thanks. The kids ate really well and us three grown ups were blown away by the quality....especially the beef. See you soon!!

This used to be my favourite local, under the new manageress it falls far short of what it used to be. No menu change in a year. I was then asked to wait for 30mins before even placing an order by the new manager in a tone that was at best rude! Because they had one big table!! The food... More

Visited this pub/restaurant on the second night of our stay at Shrigley Hall, it was extremely easy to find. A lovely environment, fires and comfortable seats, live music and a very pleasant dining area. Good food and helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

So much beautiful meat cooked to perfection, roast potatoes crispy on the outside fluffy on the inside, amazing real gravy! perfectly cooked vegetables and definitely the best Yorkshire pudding I have ever eaten (I don't normally eat them...
