Description: Cheshire village Tarporley, although not well known for ski slopes, is home to Piste Wine Bar and Restaurant. Owners James Hughes and his brother-in-law Paul Bebe explain that the name started off as a joke but soon seemed, with its cosy ski chalet associations, to represent the rustic friendly feel they had in mind for the restaurant. The pair pride themselves on modern European cuisine using only the best ingredients; the beef is sourced from Aberdeenshire, the lamb from the Welsh Valleys and the pork is all from Lincolnshire. The fish is delivered daily from the Cornish coast, and many of the other ingredients are sourced from within Cheshire. With its open fireplace and hunting trophies, Piste is decorated in a style that could be described as homey. The menu, too, features classic, tasty fare like slow roasted meats and fish and chips, and more adventurous palates will enjoy dishes like the Thai style crab cakes.

Excellent food, friendly and helpful staff. Cool place to sit and chill for the afternoon with a glass of wine or a cocktail. Homemade nacho's to die for!!

This is by far the BEST restaurant and wine bar for food and service - I have visited several times and have NEVER been disappointed - family Sunday lunch to a romantic meal for two. Piste change their menu on a regular basis, food is locally sourced and is of the highest quality. Food and service exceptional. Decor, welcome and atmosphere of a very high standard. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Have been to piste many times and it's a real favourite. Last night 6 of us came on the early herd, we enjoyed lovely cocktails. The setting is lovely, a great place to spend time with friends. I had the salad plate and was unimpressed, I don't know what type of goats cheese was used as it was a kind of liquid but the taste was good but not enough off that compared to the pea puree. For mains I had the pork which was really dry, I didn't complain I just asked for some chutney and mustard. The dauphinoise were lovely though! My friends enjoyed the soup and ham hoc., the mullet was highly recommended as well. Will go again but will hope for better as I rave about this place frequently.
