“Good food & good beer”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

After visiting a very pleasant day visiting Little Moreton Hall, Biddulph Gardens & Nether Alderley Mill, we asked the staff to recommend somewhere closeby for good beer and food and they suggested The Davenport Arms and it was an excellent recommendation.
As other reviewers have said, the staff were very friendly, the real ale was really good, the food was very good (big burger) and the service was quite quick.
The were several dinning rooms which gave an intimate feel though we ate outside in the very large gardens, as the weather was good.
For the quality of the food, I thought it was good value.
The Davenport Arms has a good reputation which is well deserved.

“Fantastic food with friendly service”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

A group of us went for lunch after playing golf at the pay and play opposite.

The staff are freindly and enjoyed to banter with us. We ate in the garden and the service was quick and the food of good quality.

An enjoyable way to finish our event.

“Good pub grub”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Called in this pub after hectic day at Food Festival in Stafford having been here a few years ago.We were given a nice table overlooking part of the garden and ordered wine whilst we perused the menu.The menu itself had a good choice of starters and mains and I had the crispy duck spring rolls whilst my wife had black pudding coquettes.Both were very good but the black pudding starter was the best.We both had wholetail scampi ,chips and peas as the main and this was served up perfectly and nice and hot too.After mains we took our drinks out into the garden area where there were various swings and climbing frames for children.The staff were all attentive and friendly and we had a really enjoyable meal.
