We were immediately greeted by friendly staff (& possibly the manager / owner) who led us to our table, providing... More

Eat here yesterday early evening. Nice menu with slightly higher prices than the usual pub grub, however that was compensated by the quality of the food. The initial service seemed slow but once we had the waitress' attention we were looked after nicely. The only two negative comments I have 1. Really annoying locals gafawing and being extrememely loud and... More

Encouraged by the good reviews, we decided to try here and we weren't disapointed at all. We did call beforehand to book, as we were specifically driving there for lunch and didn't want to... More

Thank you for your review blueboy246. I'm not sure what happened for in December. I'm only guessing you were on table 5 with the large bench seating. I try to make sure diners are seated at the correct proximity from tables, although on occasion previous diners will move the bench to vacate. If I'd have been made aware I could... More

Great Sunday Lunch in a child/toddler friendly pub and restaurant Lovely food and accommodating staff. Plenty of high chairs and more than happy to adjust the menus for children. Can't wait for the bouncy castle in Summer, we will definitely be back and hopefully bring all our friends.

Thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed it. Sorry about the gluten free bread issue. Its in the note book. Until we resolve it though you can always bring own GF bread with toaster bags and we'll sort no problem. Regards Curtis, Tracy and the team. More

this is a must visit pub with a real fire lovely staff and great food, I had the duck breast and it was cooked perfectly and melted in the mouth. black pudding starter is definitely worth a try. Not my first visit here and will not be my last 10 minutes from Knutsford and worth the drive out
