Dog friendly, lovely Cheshire pub. Great good, artisan beers. Right on the edge of the woods so a welcome sight after a long walk with the dogs. Highly recommended.

Ate here last week, and had a super Sunday lunch. It was peak time, almost dusk, and the place was packed with diners, drinkers, families and doggies post-walk. Such a great atmosphere - as usual - and a faultless roast beef dinner for both my husband and I. I love the roasts here, you get a little bit of everything,... More

We visited the Wizard today, Sunday 13th November for some drinks after walk around Alderley Edge. The service was terrible! We went into the bar area, and stood for around 5 minutes at the bar before we were even acknowledged. The waitresses had lot of drinks orders lined up along the bar and just had their heads down and continued... More

Sarah, Thank you for your review. I apologise that you had to wait a while for your drinks. As you could see we were extremely busy and it is very difficult to staff a day like that when over half of the people in the restaurant haven't booked.

I visited The Wizard on 4th September 2016, with other family members before and after visiting the local caves. On the second visit I purchased a couple of drinks and nibbles at the bar. But after seeing my bank statement a few days later and totting up the amount I should have been charged I contacted the Inn to complain... More

The food here used to be incredible but the last couple of times I've been it's been just average. The Sunday roast we had recently was good meat, but the Yorkshire puddings weren't homemade and the cheesy cauliflower was very overcooked and lacked flavour. It's a shame, it used to be fantastic food. The menu also seems a lot smaller... More

The best roast lamb lunch I've ever eaten, with a divine sticky toffee pudding to follow. Great service as well. Faultless.

This was our first visit to the Wizard and will not be our last. Service was excellent, we were greeted straight away and seated immediately. Menus were brought promptly and we were left the right amount of time in my opinion before being asked if we wanted to order drinks. We had read the menu and my partner ordered the... More

Another great Sunday lunch, brilliant portion sizes and the best cauliflower cheese in Cheshire. A good selection of real ales and wines. Friendly staff and a log fire makes us come back again and again. After seeing the Christmas menu we will definitely be back to try it.

Food was excellent. Portion size is amazing and the quality very very good - cannot fault the food. Drinks service very slow. Staff seem disorganised and unfortunately the one guy we saw must've been having a bad day as he was not polite and seemed disinterested. (But he did seem good at polishing the cutlery and throwing it into the... More

This was a lovely pub to have lunch after walking in the woodlands next door. While I have given it an average rating, it was better than this but I wouldn't say it was very good, just good. An old fashioned style pub with slate floors and wooden tables. There was a larger room if you are a large group... More
