“Exfellent food on 2 occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

We've walked here from Dunham Massey Hall twice - an easy 10 min walk by following the path below the old mill. Food has been excellent and, although not very cheap, was excellent value. Staff are efficient and friendly.

“Can't go wrong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Just off the A56 near Lymm we found this little gem - an atmospheric country pub with friendly service. Black pudding and bacon starter was possibly the tastiest starter my husband said he has had and his Pork Tenderloin was generous and well presented. My Fish Pie was packed with large chunks of salmon and tuna and was a delight. Fine selection of beer.

(This pub is on a cul-de-sac on Park Lane so another advantage is that you can't drive past it!)

“Felt like barmaid talking us out of drink”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

My friend and I visited today, I asked for a bottle of water, my friend asked for fresh orange, she said 'it's £3 that', pointed to another and said 'that ones cheaper'. My friend felt a little awkward and almost like she was being told not to get it.
Having said that, we did decide we'd go back in the future and try out the food on offer. Hopefully the 2nd impression will be better than the 1st!

I am so sorry that our barmaid came across like that, I am sure she didn't mean to offend but was merely pointing out the 2 options on orange juice and lemonade, as one is Freshly squeezed and more expensive and historically some customers have asked for the price difference . apologies if this came across wrong and we look forward to seeing you again soon

“Absolutely First Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Visited on Sunday 29th June. Arrived early during a busy lunchtime on the of chance of a early start and we were accomodated immediately. The food was some of the best pub grub the family have ever tasted and a mention has to go to the staff who were just brilliant. I can't speak highly enough of the whole experience and can't wait to come back. Outstanding. Well done.

“30th Birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

We celebrated a 30th here on Sunday 22nd June. Very good service considering a large group of us. They let us put up our own decorations and allowed us to bring in and eat own cake. Food was freshly cooked and plenty to choose from. Service was very good and constantly checking on us at all times. Well stocked bar. Would certainly come again. Lovely outdoor seating.
