On our way to Liverpool we called in for a spot of lunch. I have passed this pub so many times but have never tried it before. I was not disappointed. The pork was tasty and the vegetables were perfect

Ordered chicken pie. Lovely crisp pastry but hardly any filling. Vegetables were over cooked and obviously had been in the rack for far too long. Couldn’t eat the vegetables and nothing in the pie. Very disappointing.

Hi Ian, Sorry to hear your disappointment, i will pass this on to the kitchen, as they make the pies in house i will get them to review the portion sizes. Apologies again The Cheshire Cat
