Went for a mid-week lunch with a friend, never having been here before. Alderley Edge is full of eating places ranging from friendly pubs to top price restaurants. This newish one certainly looks cool when you go in - lots of distressed wood, flaking paint, potting-shed ambiance. The staff are all young and pleasant and service is friendly and fairly quick, although there was no pressure when we were there as it was pretty quiet. The menu is reassuringly short at lunch time and we were very pleased with the cheese and onion tart (melting pastry and tangy filling) and the avocado, bacon and stilton salad, lovely and fresh and colourful. We saw someone else's "hanging" kebabs - wonder if they tasted as amazing as they looked! The bread roll we asked for as an extra took a long time to arrive but when it did, it was presented in a little picnic basket of it's own! And in a way that is representative of the restaurant as a whole - presentation is everything and if the food wasn't good too then it would be easy to criticise, but our good meal was topped off with sticky toffee pudding and ice cream which was lovely. So don't be put off by the slightly self-conscious decor, it's a friendly place with good food and reasonable prices. Definitely one to try!
