“Owners now at the Talbot in Nantwich - same great food and service! ”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

This pub served amazing homemade meals and a friendly atmosphere with great service, I was gutted to hear the owners had left but recently discovered they are now at the Talbot in Nantwich and menu still the same so happy! That pub will never be the same, great laughs and memories held there, and lots to be had now at the Talbot!

“Plenty of food, but better quality would have been better”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

We popped in here for lunch.
Very friendly staff and food arrived within 20-30 minutes. The portions were massive, however I do feel the quality was compromised.
All in all though a pleasant meal.

“Big portions but patchy”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went for lunch to the Wickstead Arms. There were few patrons there under the age of 60, and there were two people serving - a rather surly man behind the bar (it wouldn't hurt to smile and say hello) and a pleasant young man who brought the food. The tables were grubby - in particular, the place mats were very sticky. Some of the larger tables are also pretty uncomfortable for anyone seated at the end as there is a broad leg that stops you putting your feet underneath.

On the positive side, the portions were very large and the chips were excellent - some of the best pub-cooked chips I have had, piping hot and fluffy-centred. On the negative side, the burger tasted unpleasant and wasn't good quality meat. The onion rings (50p extra) numbered just two and were very small and overcooked. It's OK to serve a burger plain if the meat is good, but this one needed garnish to mask the taste - other than the chips and a small portion of salad, the burger and bun were all that appeared on my plate. I was disappointed.

“great food”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

This is a pub offers great value food which is nicely cooked and presented. The menu is typical pub grub but does not compromise on standards. The staff offer a warm welcome and the service is efficient.
