After planning an outing to Wythenshawe to pass some time before an airport pick up we struggled to find anywhere to eat in the town centre, we enquired to a passing resident and another overheard and recommended the Tatton Arms. As it happened we had passed the pub on the way to Wythenshawe and thought due to its close proximity to the airport that it was a good choice.
We arrived and were invited to chose our own table which we did, within a couple of minutes the (fantastic) waitress has popped over to take a drink order and to show us the specials menu. Se then left us to decide what we fancied. After maybe another 5 minutes when she could see we were ready she returned to take our order. After debating on a couple of starters we decided just to opt for a main, I opted for a Tatton Ploughmans and my grandmother opted for a Gammon steak with pineapple, chips and salad. The food was beautiful, a full mini loaf with 2 good chunks of mature cheddar, roasted ham (not fatty) and 2 chunks of Ardennes pate with coleslaw, a lovely onion chutney and a salad (beautifully dressed). The gammon was perfectly cooked and not chewy and the chips were homemade (although the only criticism was they weren't quite crispy enough), all in all though very generous portions. The sweet menu was full of traditional style puddings however which seemed too good to miss so we opted to share the treacle syrup sponge, very glad we did as it was the best sponge i have had in a long while with both a scoop of ice cream and custard as the custard was recommended.
Service was phenomenal and although a previous review said otherwise the manager did speak to us (only our first visit so not regulars) as well as the other patrons which was a nice touch and after we finished we weren't ushered out of the door (the plane arrived 10 minutes late so we ended up waiting around a short while). All in all a fantastic experience and will be recommending to friends in a similar situation.
