Our family visited the Merlin for a family dinner and had a table booked for 6:30 for 12 persons as we had some youngsters with us - everything took an absolute age Drinks orders took forever and didnt arrive at the same time so some people were finished before others had started. The food service was the same and eventually we complained as we were approaching 9pm and the kids were getting desperate.
The food was pretty good when we got it but the evening was ruined by the appauling service. Had we been served at a reasonable time we would have had deserts etc but we had all had enough.
This is a great pitty as I have stayed there before and found the service to be good. What I did notice is that the Menu is a bit broader so maybe they have gone a little beyond what they are capable of delivering.

Today it offers 10 comfy, modern rooms and a cosy pub and restaurant, where you can savour fresh, seasonal food in the warmth of a crackling open fire.Alderley Edge may boast the highest number of millionaires per square mile in the country, but there's much more to this pretty village than star watching.

The National Trust's Quarry Bank Mill and stylish Knutsford are also well worth a visit. ... more less
