We stayed overnight at the Royal Vales campsite which is excellent see other reviews. We were recommended by the reception to visit this Pub for value for money pub food and ales. We were not disappointed ales were £1.34 for the Dark Mild, mixed grill approx £14.00. Chicken and bacon Salad £6.95. Staff very welcoming and accommodating. In my opinion... More

This isn't the sort of place to take the wife as it's pretty basic. But for a cheap lunchtime meal with colleagues, you can't beat it.

Walked in smiling but got the death stare from the staff behind the bar. So rude, not welcoming at all. Atmosphere was awful, it was if we were interrupting their evening. Food was poor. We're pretty local, but won't be visiting again, certainly won't recommend.

The Whipping Stocks is one of those places you can always rely on for some good pub grub and all set in the lovely Cheshire countryside. Some great ales too... Just make sure someone else is driving!! ;)

Whew were working at Tatton Park and used this pub for evening meals last year on a number of occasions. We decided to give it a try again. Oh dear a mistake, waited 40 minutes for our food with very few people in the pub. They seemed in complete disarray delivering wrong food to the other party in the bar... More

It is years since we were last here and it will be many more before we return. On a pleasant Sunday lunchtime the place was nearly empty and the only thing that saved it was a very pleasant young lady behind the bar. The food was average and came no where close to matching such an attractive pub/setting. We were... More

Visited today for lunch with my daughter and partner. The manager and the young lady behind the bar were very friendly and efficient, the food and drink excellent quality and very good value and the surroundings very relaxing. The pub has character, and perhaps it's that which puts some others off (having read other reviews). We will definitely add the... More

It was ok, One of those that you were happy to call in but you wouldn't go back. Someone needs to tell them nowadays families should be welcomed and not forced to sit in a side room.

I was previously a huge fan of this pub but they have re-decorated it and put the most miserable man in Cheshire behind the bar. And that's saying something, there are some right grumpy so and sos. The redecoration is ok but they had a chance to do something special with a great building but instead they have re-stained the... More
