Description: On the edge of the old Manchester to Oxford Road stands The Romper, an old coaching inn welcoming patrons through our doors for over 400 years. With its charming, whitewashed, slate-tiled exterior and rampant lion roaring above the door, The Romper is a former coaching inn, tucked away on a old country lane, on the edge of Altrincham. The Romper is also just a stone’s throw from Manchester Airport, making it a perfect stopover, whether you’re exploring the local area or about to take to the skies. Offering easy access to Cheshire’s lovely villages and towns, including Hale, and Wilmslow, as well as some of the county’s prettiest countryside, Sat in the lovely beer garden on a sunny day, surrounded by leafy lanes, it’s hard to believe how close you are to one of Europe’s busiest airports. In winter, when the log fire crackles in the hearth, and pints of cask ale are being poured under the old-beamed ceilings, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in a rustic county pub

Went to The Romper for lunch today. They were not busy and the staff were friendly but the food was very disappointing. I ordered fish and chips; the rather small portion of chips were undercooked and virtually inedible. My friend's baked potato was just the opposite, her opinion was that it seemed to have been stood for a long time and then microwaved. She couldn't get her knife through the skin. When I told the waitress she seemed to understand that this was a problem with the particular "chef" who was on duty. To be fair they did reduce the bill by 50%, but this does not really compensate for a lunch date spoiled.

Found this Pub whilst driving to the nearby Premier Inn. Just a short walk to a pleasant Pub with wide range of ales and wine and the best Fish & Chips for miles around. Definitely worth the short walk to find it if you have a few hours to spare before your flight

This was a great pub lunch. We had come from a Concorde tour at Manchester Airport and were pleased to find a big menu and big portions at the Romper.

We ordered a bottle of Prosecco that arrived chilled. I had a big juicy burger with home cooked chips and my friend said his pie had plenty of meat inside with a home cooked feel to the pastry. We had garlic pizza bread to start, coffee and dessert (plenty of great dessert choices) for a reasonable price.

We ate at lunch time on a Saturday in August and found no problems with service or quality.

The pub itself is lovely, it has plenty of parking and an attractive outdoor seating area with a traditional, cozy pub feel to the inside. It's a big place so we found a seat easily. The staff were attentive and our food arrived quickly. Unfortunately I left my blackberry phone charger beside our table so if anyone at the Romper still has this please let me know and I will collect :(

Recommended by staff member at nearby Premier Inn - wish we'd eaten there instead! We had to move from our first table in the garden as there was an unpleasant smell. Inside, the place feels as if it is in need of a refit with furniture quite worn and rickety. The freezer to frier/microwave food we received was disappointing and quite overcooked. Final straw was the squarking tots which were seated on the next table. Only redeeming feature was our cheery waiter who provided great service including trying to entertain the young guests at surrounding tables. We are due to fly from Manchester again later this year but sadly will not return to the Romper.
