Pre-booked for an early evening meal on a Sunday, arrived to find we were the only diners, however with the extremely slow service one could be forgiven for thinking this was a very busy kitchen, it was not and the only emphasis was on the customers in the bar area which was fairly busy but not so busy that service...

We booked a meal here via a Groupon offer. The pub is lovely and we found the staff to be very friendly. We both had a starter which was delicious then ate a steak main which came with chips a side sauce and salad. It was really nice. We shared a dessert of sticky toffee pudding and custard. I cant...

Four of us for lunch. Cold day, no heating and we all felt really cold by the end of the meal. If they didn't want to put the heating on at least there was a gas fire not in use. I had fish and chips which was a rather small portion by current pub standards. Sadly it was also cold!... More

Four people went to the Drum for lunch today, we found the menu quite compact and something for all of us. The service was very efficient and friendly and the food was good. We certainly will go there again.

Came to The Drum and Monkey for the first time in years this evening, after hearing great reviews. We were left very disappointed with our luke warm, small and overpriced meals. We had the steak pie, which in fairness was tasty but it wasn't hot and definitely wasn't worth £12 each. You get a better sized portion in chain pubs.... More

The pub was lovely, quite well hidden behind a row of houses, but not far from the Main Street in Alderly Edge. We bought the Groupon offer as a birthday gift and a nearby hotel. The pub was nice, outside looked like it would be perfect in the summer. The staff were friendly, food was very good but the service... More

Thank you for your feedback. We have now created our new menu (without Cheese & Onion Pie) and will be increasing our staff to accommodate the coming summer months. We hope that you will return to enjoy the outside space & maybe the occasional barbecue we hope to provide. More
