We stayed here valentines night as we had been working down the rd at peckforton castle, £50 b&b was fantastic value, the room was comfy and clean and very quiet unlike some pubs we have stayed in, unfortunately we had to leave really early so missed breakfast but we did have a very nice valentines meal in the pub. We...

We booked a Christmas lunch with our elderly relative. We had a warm welcome and were shown to a nice table by the open fire. The menu choices were good and a reasonable price. The portions are huge! (The starters were adequate for a main meal!) Unfortunately, because we ate all our starters, we then couldn't eat all of our...

Stayed here on New Years Eve and had a very good meal at a very good price. Room was not huge but big enough for one night and bed was comfy and clean. Toilet needed a clean, there was a ring at the water line.

Hi Pauline Thank you for your review I'm glad you enjoyed your new year with us. Apologies about the bathroom, I have spoke to the housekeeping team regarding the bathroom cleanliness as this is not acceptable. Look forward to welcoming you back soon.

My Sister and I chose this country pub for a family pre-Christmas meal. It's on the main Chester Road at Alpraham and so it's easy to get to and easy to find. I had not been there for many years and was very impressed with the decor. It's stylish whilst retaining the 'olde worlde' charm. All helped along with a...

We had Christmas dinner there today and was poor, we as a family were very disappointed with what we had and the service received, very slow and disorganised, told the staff of our disappointing remarks and weren't interested, food poor aswell!

Hi David Your review confuses me as everyone myself and the manager spoke to on Christmas Day express how impressed they were and how much they enjoyed the meal. I would disagree myself that the service was disorganised and slow as I was very impressed with the entire team and achieving a 5 course meal for the entire pub in...

We visited ad hoc at lunchtime whilst on the Christmas drop off! Wonderful, warm welcome. We've eaten at some top restaurants and and I was surprised to read the review where the steaks were not cooked to liking as my partner is one fussy gentleman and he stated it was the best steak he had in a long time!

I visited this pub last Saturday 26th November with 2 sets of friends. Most of us ordered the steak to be cooked in "Big Bertha" expecting an excellent steak. None of the steaks were cooked to our satisfaction but particularly the 2 fillet steaks which we wanted cooking medium and medium rare. They were both well done. We were asked...

Hi Judi I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your evening with us. If a steak as not cooked to perfection we always aim to replace it however due to how popular the fillet was with customers this even we did run out. During your meal the main dining area in front of the fire was almost constantly full so you weren't...
