I came here with friends and was greeted by friendly staff. It was very noisy- there was some sort of large funeral party(?)
In the adjoining room. I ordered the steak and ale pie. It looked wonderful when it came- lots of pastry but when I started to eat it discovered that there were tiny pieces of meat on the bottom of the dish - hardly enough to feed a mouse! Very disappointing. My friends seemed happy with their lasagna. I would not recommend it for a full meal or if you wanted a quiet restful place to eat!

Having been to the Beefeater near Manchester Airport we were a bit dubious about this place which is similar in style. However we were pleasently surprised, service was delievered with a friendly smile and nothing was too much, food was average but a fair price so couldn't complain. Much better choice than the Beefeater and slightly cheaper so for a couple of miles further down the road rather pay a bit more in petrol as food was much better.

Xmas lunch
Microwaved tasteless boring no atmosphere staff generally very good was just so cheap tasting like a glorified frozen ready roast you get but bit better. Not worth 40 quid each. Was my fault last resort. Won't go back. Also ask for no ice in your drink or you'll get a glass of ice with a spoonful of pop. It annoyed me they served us the more expensive bottle diet coke when didn't ask. Blatantly management instruction.

We went here for dinner one night and had steak. The food is appaling. Firstly the place was empty and they oohed and ahhed about weather there was a table and secondly the food was microwaved rubbish. For the price you could go anywhere else in Didsbury and get MUCH better food! You have been warned!

We came here after a four hour drive and checking into the Premier Inn.
Hungry was not the word for it.

At first we waited for 5mins for someone to ask if we wanted a table.
Taken to table and asked if we wanted drinks whilst we looked at menu. Yes please.
10mins later still no drinks.

Another waitress asked if we wanted something, drinks please.
5 mins later they arrived.

Table opposite was full of extended family who had to ask to have their table cleared and then had to ask for their sweets.

15 min later still no sweets and they had to seek out the staff to ask for them.
All tables were full of empty glasses and dirty plates.
Even when tables were cleared, the plates were just moved to a tray stand at the side of the table and not taken away.

When our food arrived it was really very nice.

Ordered sweet and waited and waitress came back, realised she had forgotten to place the order and told us she had forgotten.
We were now the only people in the place.

Came to pay but machine wasn't working and had to go to bar.
Bar staff ignored me completely, seemed to be sorting out his tips or cash back for himself. Manager walked passed us, as did another member of staff but none of them acknowledged us or asked if they could help.

I eventually asked if I could pay someone, the guy at the bar asked his colleague to do it but she told him to do it.

By this point I told them that I'd they didn't want my money then fine.

I have never reviewed anywhere and it is rambling like a mofo but I cannot stress how annoyed I was with the service I received here.

Waitress staff were really very pleasant but ineffectual, food was good but overall experience was very poor which is a real shame.

Sorry.
