My wife and me visited last week.
The ambience was very pleasant as were the staff.
The food,service.and drinks were of the highest quality.
I would recommend the pub to anyone who likes good food and drink and is looking for something rather better than £10 for two
We forward to our next visit very soon.

Having not visited the Legh Arms for some months and remembering the Sunday lunch really hit the spot, we decided to pay it a recent visit. We weren't disappointed, none of us knew it had been refurbished and we loved the results.

Decor and general feel were spot on, the staff were friendly and professional and the food was excellent! Great wine selection and cask ale's, one or two even dabbled with the cocktail menu (seemed like a good idea at the time!!).

Defiantly worth a visit and we'll all be back soon..

The Legh arms recently changed hands and this seems to have been for the worse.

As a regular with my colleagues - it was the best pub in the area for consistently good food at a fair price - I awaited the reopening of the Pub under new management with great anticipation.

On entry we were greeted by a smart new décor - the smell of paint still lingering in the air - and friendly smiles from the staff. Unfortunately, this was as the best of it.

Our order - a simple enough mixture of sandwiches and burgers for 9 people - took over an hour to arrive.

Once food did start to come, there were several minutes between each plate arriving - the explanation for this being a small fryer, so the fries were in small batches.

On arrival the fries themselves were chewy; I suspect due to the fryer not being up to temperature. The problem was exacerbated further by the sandwiches that seemed to be on bread that was frozen, though we were assured that no freezer is in use. (perhaps just cold and stale?)

Ultimately we had our bill reduced, though hardly felt satisfied by this.

It would be kind to give the benefit of the doubt as the pub recently re-opened, so we will likely visit again. If the situation is not greatly improved on our next visit then it will also be our last.

On a good note, the draft bitter was very good. As was, I am told, the wine.

The only pub in Knutsford where we could watch the Manchester derby and eat, didn't expect much of the food going off the other pubs we had tried. We were very surprised. The portions were very generous and the food excellent. One of the best lasagnas I've ever had. The chocolate brownie dessert melted in the mouth, it was pure indulgence. The staff were very friendly and polite even though they were run off their feet. Definitely recommended.
