We visited here on Saturday 08/03/14 after parking the car by the start of the disused North Staffordshire Railway to walk along the old track to The Ramblers Retreat, which is very pleasant. There are a couple of car parks by the Retreat but its nicer to walk along the old railway track. We managed to get a table for two it was to busy though a couple of family tables were reserved which is nice to know that you can reserve a table. We had the roast dinner which was very nice you get a separate bowl of carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower, we asked for extra gravy which we got and was no bother at all to the waiter who I have to say was very good and knowledgeable about the area thanks for that and your advice. So after dinner we left and told the waiter that we'll be back after a walk through the woodlands which is beautiful for dessert. We ended up going off track but this wasn't a problem as we met a lovely couple from the local area. We headed back to have our dessert which was the cream tea for two at £8.20 we thought very good value as was the roast dinner earlier at £8.75. Again we had the same waiter and he was excellent nothing to much trouble for him, thank you! We left feeling rather happy about the place and look forward to returning soon, be advised to take your wellies or a good set of walking boots as there are places were you'll need them, there are boot covers just outside the resturant for those with very muddy boots/wellies. All in all very satisfied, excellent food, service, and surroundings we'll certainly be back. The sort of visit we put was families not just couples as we were, its a great place for everyone.
