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.

Group of 5 of us ate here on Saturday 18th July 2020, booked a table and got seated on time. Great staff, we're all from Berkshire so got some advice on local things to do from Karen and Elliot. Lovely people! So friendly and had us all laughing. Food was good, generous portions at very good prices. Great place and we'd all reccomend it. Thanks guys from all of us PI ghost hunters UK. X

Went with a friend and booked a table for 5pm we got there a little earlier and our table was ready. Staff were helpful and friendly and all the correct things in place for the COVID situation. We ordered food, desert and drink and on the eat out scheme it was £8.

We arrived at 12pm pre booked tables. We were a group of 12 but sat at 3 different tables close together in our bubbles so to follow government guidelines and stay safe. All arranged prior to our visit. Once seated and happy one of our ladies ordered her meal and drink, pressuming the waitress was going to take everyones orders, she disappeared and the meal (carvary) was instantly brought out, we didnt even have drinks orders taken and everyone else was waiting to place their order, I explained this to the waitress and she was very rude saying "they are understaffed and the plate of carvary would be put in the kitchen until everyones order was ready then" very abrupt lady!! she seemed really angry that we wanted to eat together. So by the time everyone had placed an order and got their drinks the food came out over 40 minutes after. The carvary was scoulding sodden, clearly had been left under a heat lamp that whole time, It wasn't acceptable. Some food was cold (jacket potato) the condiments came out after the food so people were waiting to eat. It seemed very unorganised and the staff did lots of trips bringing cutlery/condiments etc. It took such a long time to get a gluten free menu so one of our ladies was the last to eat. Its ok having a menu online but some people don't know how to use technology or have sight impairments so it would be better for staff to be educated on whats available. Really disappointed as the Story Teller is very local to all who was in my group and 9 out of 12 of us were really disappointed with the service.

Service absolutely shocking … waited at bar for approx 10 mins to be served just drinks . Then download app to order food and drinks after personally working for Greene king I knew it was the easiest way to order. Drinks came to table by a lovely guy.. no issues . Mains brought to table after 40 mins wait by Sarah .. great service lovely 😊 lady. Two of of our party had ordered carvery … went to collect … again waited 10 mins for chef to appear … unfriendly unprofessional all too much to serve us . Dried up veg must have been under heat all day . Other meals could have been better from a major supermarket and cooked at home . Mac and cheese or something that resembled it was totally tasteless and dries up. Chicken wings sloppy dippers / strips over cooked and dried up . Total waste of money . Will never go for food again

It's very disappointing to see how long you were waiting for your food and that you were so let down by the steak when it arrived. We're very sorry to hear about the service you received from the team, that's not up to our usual standard at all and we will be making sure this is looked into and improved upon.

It’s the first time I’ve visited the pub/restaurant since the new manager has taken over and I can honestly say I wasn’t disappointed! Id heard off friends it had changed hands and you can definitely tell!! I’d stopped coming due to poor service and food that was served cold or undercooked. This time however, the atmosphere felt so warm and friendly the moment we walked in, we was greeted at the door by Kayleigh, she walked us to the table and explained the new rules due to Covid. I ordered crispy chicken and my mum ordered a steak. They were gorgeous! We will definitely be returning soon! Thankyou to the new manager.

We visited the Storyteller for breakfast on Friday morning and it was lovely, we were welcomed at the door and taken to our table. Food arrived really quick and was hot, we decided to give it another visit on Saturday for lunch. Again everything was brilliant - would recommend calling in if your ever shopping round Parkgate

We've spent the evening at the Christmas eve pj party organised by Wacky warehouse/Storyteller. It was a great experience, my little boy had so much fun, while me and my partner got to enjoy the nice food, drinks and desserts ordered from Storyteller. The host of the party, Emma Outram and her assistant, Kat were both brilliant, friendly and extremely helpful. Emma did lots of fun activities with the children and she made sure all the kids got involved, which was really nice since my little boy is usually very shy. She was great and very friendly, but really knowledgable and professional at the same time. We had so much fun, and will definitely be returning on the New year's party!

Food was lovely at the story teller in parkgate, the carvery was beyond tasty! Was very happy when I saw a young man bring over some fresh roasted parsnips just as I arrived to the carvery, couldn’t fault the food whatsoever. The drinks were lovely a really nice waitress called Ciara made our deserts which were super well presented and tasted lovely. Would recommend the story teller to anyone!

Thankyou to the team at The Storyteller for arranging my last minute booking for my business meeting. We’d been let down by another company and struggled to find somewhere for the following day. The staff couldn’t do enough for us by bringing us refreshments and making us feel so welcome. We’ll see you in four weeks for our next meeting. Thankyou again.

Visited the Storyteller today for an afternoon carvery., we were served at the bar by Sarah from us walking in we felt welcomed, chatty happy staff who took the time to explain their menu. We settled on a traditional Sunday carvery, tried all three meats and an abundance of freshly cooked vegetables. Very good value and very well cooked. It was especially nice to see them offering a blue light discount. Had a lovely outing and will definately visit again, lovely beer garden/seating area on the front of the building would be lovely on a sunny afternoon.

I went to the storyteller with my family and was really impressed with the service we were provided with. We were served by a waitress called Ciara who was very polite and helpful during our visit. When one of my family members asked if she could not have onions with her meal, Ciara was very understanding and polite with her response.

We went the other day pre-booking for my mother's birthday. We ordered drinks came and then food came, but sadly the person that took the order forgot to put through my mixed grill so everyone had there tea and I had to wait. Luckily the chef was straight onto it and got it out to me about 15 minutes extra wait. But when I did get it the food was lovely no complaints what so ever. You can tell the team is not use to it being busy as I asked for a pint of Peroni and got a pint of Corrs, but it was quickly swapped, would have been happy to keep the Corrs but there is quite a different in price so I changed it. Kids loved playing outside in the play area, overall happy its re-opened and will be back/
