“Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We visited this old pub on spec - no booking - and were easily accommodated. I had been there during the summer and loved it, so took the family back. The pub is small, but tons of atmosphere - originally built in the 1840s, many of the old features are still there but updated for comfort. Food was of good quality, well cooked and presented and tasty. I had the lamb shanks and enjoyed the melt in your mouth lamb with a tasty sauce and great mash. Others in the party recommended the salt and pepper squid, the lamb pie and the steak. Desserts were a little disappointing compared with the rest of the meal. Friendly, helpful staff and a great wood fire made for a pleasant wet Saturday afternoon.

“Popular Pub, but get there on time if you book!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

I booked well ahead for this Hotel, knowing that it gets very busy on Sundays. Unfortunately we were half an hour late and our table by the fire was given away and we probably had the only remaining table in the restaurant near the well (probably the worst table in the house!) Our fault - should have rung and said we were running late!
That said - it's a great place to visit and food is delicious - I had the lamb rump and we had a share platter for entree. The lamb rump was lovely. A few things we asked for from the menu were not available (dark ale, and one of the wines we asked for) Great venue though and very pretty town - markets were on in the morning the Sunday we went
Go for the food and atmosphere but book and get there on time!

“The Three Brothers Arms Macclesfield S.A.”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We had a great day at this establishment. The menu was varied, food and service excellent and the hotel has great ambiance.
My recommendation is to book as people were being turned away from the Sunday lunch because the house was full.

“Lovely surprise in the Hills”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

My husband and I found this restaurant/pub when travelling through Macclesfield so decided to have lunch there. We were not disappointed as the place had an old English pub feel about it and was packed out which gave it a lovely atmosphere. The food was very good and service was excellent which all contributed to a lovely lunch. We will certainly go back there again (sooner rather than later).
