Very very poor customer service. Queued for around 20 minutes, which we were happy to do. The couple in front ordered a hot chocolate and 2 sausage roles. We wanted the same, to be told we couldn’t have the sausage rolls due to them only being 68 degrees and they needed to be 75. We understood and said we’d wait for them to reach the right temperature. To then be told we couldn’t have them and we’d need to queue again if we wanted them. Surely they should have just told us we could have them when they were warm which we were advised would take 5 minutes? They then proceeded to ask if we still wanted the hot chocolate which we declined out of principle. As we stood outside, the couple who were behind us in the queue then had the sausage rolls? Very poor customer service and wouldn’t recommend wasting your money here.

Completed the walk yesterday with my wife, doing it in four leisurely sections of 10,9,8 and 10 miles (inc detours) from Whitchurch to Frodsham during partial Covid lockdown. On the whole, the route is very pleasant and varied and hardly any of it on roads. It is generally well signposted except for the Frodsham end. There is a lack of signage in both directions from the centre of town to the Woodhouse Fort, and the apparent split of two route options is confusing. One should be signposted as an alternative route. Best sections are around Bickerton - Beeston and Delamere - Frodsham. The section from Whitchurch to Bickerton is low level, canal and fields. In late summer, there are some overgrown stretches which are almost impassable if you are wearing shorts due to brambles and nettles, particularly Ash Wood near Tarporley. It looks like much investment has been made in new stiles, especially in the are to the South East of Kelsall. Some of the paths on Frodsham hill could be considered as dangerous as they are near to cliff edges. On the whole we enjoyed the route and would recommend the trail to any keen walkers. The Pheasant Inn and the Boot Inn at Boothsdale are both worth the detours.

Really enjoyed our two days walking the trail. Well-marked, mostly, although we had navigational backup! Would highly recommend. We did 14 miles/19 miles and stopped off at the Pheasant Inn - great stopping point. Dog enjoyed - some livestock and some grouse so he was on the lead quite a lot.

Just completed the walk in 2 days first day encountered not the best weather - please note do not wear shorts as some if the path is overgrown with bushes and nettles - I found the Sandstone Way guidebook invaluable. The last few miles along the canal are hard going and Whitchurch is not inspiring but I fuld the miles after Bickerton through the fields beautiful. Well worth it and a sublime walk - will do again.
