Booked day before and looked at menu. Good variety of food for pub style restaurant.Steaks were excellent. Starters had a good choice with several to share.we did not plan a dessert but could not resist the selection.The atmosphere was good and busy even on a Monday.The staff were wonderful and we could not fault the evening.We would visit again when in the area.

We were staying at Alton Towers splash landings hotel but did not like what was on offer or the price so we decided to see what was available elsewhere thanks to tripadvisor I found The Bowling Green Inn. The reviews were great so we called and we booked the last available table and I am so glad we did. Plenty of choice and real value for money, so rare these days. We were a party of four (two adults & two children) we had the chicken with haggis which was delicious and the portions were generous. The service was quick and the staff were friendly and welcoming. If only we lived nearer. Would definately recommend booking to avoid being disappointed.

We visited the area for an overnight stay the hotel we were in recommended The Bowling Green, and we are very glad they did. Excellent choice on the menu, very friendly and welcoming service. We were a group of 5 which included a child and we were accommodated this no problem. when the food came it was to a very high standard. If we are in the area again we would certainly use there again. Thank you for a great evening.

We visited the area for a two night stop and ended up at the Bowling Green both nights. Good choices and nicely prepared. I don't agree with the one reviewer that it was everything with chips. You have a choice! The staff were very friendly, helpful and organised, they fitted us in when we arrived the first night unannounced.

Truly excellent from the welcome onwards. We called on spec. with a family group of six adults and five children during the recent half-term week. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and quickly re-arranged their restaurant to accommodate us. Service was speedy and all the orders came exactly as requested (somewhat unusual nowadays in my experience). The food was extremely good, especially the chips - best I've tasted in a long time.
