I found the service to be slow with no staff visible at times. I suppose we got seated after 9.30pm (after a long business day) and they're supposed to close at 10pm so that may have been a contributing factor. There was ample opportunity to have taken our food order in the bar area fist to sped things up a bit, then show us to our table when the food was ready. Instead the waiter brought us drinks in the bar area and showed us to our table. Cunningly, the waiter recommended a white wine to my colleague but failed to tell him it was £16.95 per 175ml glass - oh dear, there was nearly tears! There's one rather imposing photo of MPW which sticks in my mind, displayed on the wall in the main restaurant area - he's got his eyes closed (?) All a bit pompous and pretentious for my liking and pretty obviously vain vain of the guy. His own brand cider was quite sharp and quenching at £5 per bottle. It was too late for steak, though I would try it if I stayed in the hotel again. The fish pie I had was tasty and filling with plenty of fish and prawns. Others enjoyed their dishes too. We weren't asked if we wanted cheese or desserts (we didn't, but it's nice to be asked). I'd probably give them another change - there's one in my home town, so I may treat the other half : )

My partner is a chef so I arranged to go to the MPW restaurant as a birthday surprise. We had high expectations and the restaurant did not dissapoint. Service was very friendly and professional. Gorgeous restaurant with a lovely relaxing ambience. Food was delicious and considering you are paying for the name very good value for money. Perfectly sized starters that left us wanting more then we both had the T-bone steak which was cooked to perfection. Also sides are only priced at £3 which is cheaper than most restaurants, portions aren't huge but just right. We were too full for dessert despite lots of delicious options. Cocktails were pricey at £10 so we did not indulgence in lots of cocktails as it would have seriously added to the bill. Great restaurant to go for a special celebratory night out will defintley be going again.

Went here for my cousins anniversary , was fully booked but they managed to get us a table for 4 . The staff were really friendly and food was fabulous . T bone steaks filled the plate and the chips were homemade .. Desserts were just gorgeous . I don't normally do desserts but the trifle was lovely .. Would definitely go back again ...

This is undoubtedly one of the best places to eat in Cheshire. the service was exceptional and the food was delightful, it really could not have been better. The restaurant is beautifully set out and we had a table overlooking the gardens. considering the whole package it really is a reasonable price to pay. We will be back again soon.

What a disappointment. No vegetarian options at all on the menu. Opted for shepherds pie and at £14 thought that might be a bit special. It was no better than I could make myself, and sticking it in a mini frying pan didn't make it taste any different. Perhaps the chef's name raised my expectations too high? The service was good and it is a nice looking restaurant, shame food didn't match up.
