Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Heard about this place from a friend so thought we’d give it a whirl, Restaurant is clean and tidy, staff are polite, the table for two upstairs next to the toilet door wouldn’t have been my first choice but as other larger table were occupied...we accepted it, Bread ‘while you wait’ wasn’t up to much, but ended up OK to have with the starters, Smoked haddock was really tasty, poached egg done perfectly and sauce e very nice, wifey said her Scallops etc were also spot on and better than she’d had elsewhere, Mains, My John Dory was superb, Gnocchi mushrooms very good and the sides of garlic carrots were very good indeed, Wifeys steak was poor and she left most of it, it was either incorrectly defrosted or just cooked wrong, tasteless, watery and tough even though ordered medium rare, all extras were good and served hot and cooked correctly, On our way out another couple who both had steak we’re giving theirs funny looks too, seemed like it wasn’t just us. Staff were very nice, I think we’ll give it another go, (obviously avoiding the steak) as most other things pleased us,More

My husband had some lovely oysters but didn’t enjoy his fish pie it was a little runny and not a lot of taste apparently, I had the the monk fish panko but the sauce was cold and possibly a lot of the cabbage juice got...in there - it needed a herb component in my view something to lift the taste a little. My main was lovely the John Dory was well cooked and tasty and the sides were also delicious. We ordered a side of carrots and actually were worth the money! Tasted naturally smoked somehow - lovely flavourMore

Came across this restaurant whilst visiting family in the area. Oh my goodness what a gem! My auntie fancied a fish and chip supper so we asked for a traditional cod and chips and it really did not disappoint. The fish batter was light and...crispy, the fish itself was white and flaky. The chips were hot and cooked to perfection too. We finished our meal with lovely desserts. The service was efficient and server extremely pleasant. Honestly cannot recommend enough if you are in the area.More

Even though it’s only on the other side of the borough, we may not have come across the restaurant without a casual mention on a travel forum. I’d been chatting with this guy about the restaurants in the Spanish resort and, as we were both...from Greater Manchester, we started swapping the names of places we like at home. And what a “find” Fisherman’s Table has proved to be. Nice building (over 270 years old, the website says), lovely server and a nice short menu which changes every couple of months. It’s one of those places which is exactly how your neighbourhood restaurant should be – and it was worth the schlep battling through Stockport’s rush hour traffic on a very wet Wednesday evening. The small Queenie scallops were one starter, in the French style as Coquilles St Jacques. Served on the half shell, in a creamy sauce and topped with mashed potato flavoured with a little cheese. Across the table, three big chunks of monkfish had been given a really crisp panko breadcrumb coating before being fried. They sat in a delicious shellfish bisque enhanced with a few shreds of pickled red cabbage. It all works really well. A tuna steak came medium rare – I’m not a fan of overcooked tuna nor am I a fan of the fashionable “just seared” version. This was pretty much perfect for me. It’s how Spanish chefs cook it in the good seafood restaurants in the resort I mentioned earlier. And a Spanish theme is on the plate, in the form of a thick chorizo, tomato and chickpea “stew” – they could “big this up” and serve it as one of their non-seafood starters or mains. It’s too good to be just an accompaniment. It’s utterly delicious. Across the table, “catch of the day” was a whole sea bream which had been grilled, I think and was served with a caper butter sauce. Certainly another dish that was an absolutely bang-on bit of fish cooking. It came with a few green beans and asparagus spears. Most dishes come with a carb but these were the two that didn’t, so we ordered some chips to scoff alongside. As often the case, desserts were OK but were not as good as the savoury courses. Housemade bread and butter pudding is a favourite of my companion in life and was declared “decent”. It comes with ice cream or custard. That’ll be custard then - obviously. The other pud was a small, very crisp tart, filled with a lemon cream and, also on the plate, blueberry compote and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. We finished with good espresso.More

Best local meal we have had in a while. Lovely atmosphere, attentive & friendly waitress and beautiful food. My mussels were lush but my husband’s John Dory was even better. First visit to The Fisherman’s Table but definitely returning soon for another meal.

We had high expectations after hearing so many wonderful things about the restaurant and the oysters to start did not disappoint. They were by far the highlight of the meal! Scallop starter didn’t ‘wow’ and the chicken and ham terrine was dry and tasted like...one big lump of turkey. The bread that accompanied was delicious. On to the mains: salmon was delicious but the brussel sprouts were burnt. The mussels were really nice too and the sauce very tasty. Cooked to perfection with a taste to match was the John Dory however, the sauce/bisque was a massive let down as it had no taste and the prawns were overcooked and rubbery. Puddings were average. What really was disappointing was that as we were eating and enjoying ourselves, the service staff were making up place settings for the following day on the table across from us. I understand that this prep needs doing and if the staff have nothing to do then they should be kept busy but not on the restaurant floor during service.More

This is a small restaurant, it may not look like a gourmet restaurant but they are freaky focused on the food. We had three different meals and all of us was very satisfied. If I return to Marple I'll sure be back.

There is a car park just behind. Turn right if Stockport road at the Nationwide. It’s 30p for 1 hour & 50pm for 2 to 3 hours at lunch. I think it’s free after 6 pm but I would check.
