Lovely spot, busy and lively. Book are get early at weekend. Open fires and dog friendly. Food and drink spot on. Nice after a walk around the edge.

We have met here several times over the years as it is a (sort of) mid point between where we live and where my other sister lives. It is dog friendly and the staff are usually accommodating. We attended on Saturday 28th January. We had booked well in advance and were seated pretty quickly. The food was good enough, though... More

Having just been for Sunday lunch, six of us, I think we all enjoyed the roast dinner, one of the best I have had ever. Unfortunately, the room we were in was cold, if I had realised a fire was lit in one of the other rooms, (noticed on way out), I would have asked for the fire to be... More

Enjoyed a meal today with a friend and have to say how warm and welcome the lady was serving us, then when people left sat down with us and had a wonderful chat, good luck with your travels and keep in touch.

Absolute chaos, non of the staff knew what they were doing, took 40 mins to order our food, the prawns in the prawn cocktail were minuscule, 20 mins after we finished the starter the plates were taken away. We had to ask 4 times for water for the dog. The mains arrived, we were asked if there was anything else... More

Nina, I am very sorry about your experience at The Wizard. I have spoken to Jamie about your experience and all I can do is apologise, your waitress was working her first busy Sunday and I think she was given more responsibility than she should have which may have resulted in your poor experience and wait. It was a very... More

I came for a meal with family for my birthday after we had walked around Alderley Edge. It's an excellent place to stop in at, it has a lot of character, tasty food and even accommodated for our dog :)

We went for lunch with my parents and two small children aged 2 and 6 months. The service was very poor, it is absolutely not child friendly and with one notable exception the staff seem to find all customers, especially those with small children an inconvenience. The food is very average and if it wasn't for its proximity to The... More

We started with the intention of being good to ourselves and exercising in the new year ... we noticed the pub as the parked in the nearby National Trust carpark (all day parking £4).

This is my second visit here for an evening meal, although the menu is small, there is a good selection available, the food is all freshly cooked and prepared, hence the small menu. The food is amazing and decent sized portions. The pub is lovely old fashioned country pub, with real fires, it's definitely worth a visit.

Visited The Wizard this week and had a great meal with excellent service. Along with my family, I have visited this pub a number of times in the past as well as other pubs in the area - we keep coming back as there is always such a warm welcome, great selection of wines and local beers.

Andy, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! I don't think I really have anything else to say, the review is exactly what I try to tell people who then think I am making excuses so it means a lot that people recognise this. We always love having you in and look forward to seeing you... More
