Lovely setting, but the staff are miserable as others have said. In fact the man who served me was rude. They have Guinness on tap but then serve it you out of a can. Shame as it could be much better.

Week day lunch with no booking, Friendly welcome and showed straight to a table with no issue. Great selection of ales and lagers on draught. Food arrived in good time and both meals good quality service and staff good throughout. All in all great first visit and would definitely use again after a walk round the edge.

This place is a little gem. Stopped by on the off chance and was presented with a great menu. Chose the lamb and it couldn't have been better. Every one friendly and with time to look after you. Excellent

We called in on our way back from a few days away. The food was stunning. We had pan fried lamb which was. Liked to perfection. Very pleasant and friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere.

Great for people walking to/from alderley edge, dog friendly and really cosy atmosphere. Good beer terrace plus seating in front (downside: this is on quite a busy road) and very nice looking food menu. The issue is that service for both food and drink moves at a snails pace during peak times. I imagine this is due to the tiny... More

We had pre-booked for lunch on Good Friday, I arrived with my partner and dog, the ?Manager was at the desk when we arrived. He told us they were running behind but we 'should be ok': a negative welcome and not a smile in sight, a theme that followed throughout our visit. To be honest the time we waited to... More

The meal was brilliant, well cooked,very tasty. The service was great, lovely waiter and overall excellent. However the parking was atrocious and we couldn't walk through the main front door as some inconsiderate person in a land rover had parked over the entrancewalk way. We ended up parking further down the road at a cost of £2-70 for 2 hours.... More
