We escaped from Splash Landings Hotel to eat here. Restaurant is separate to pub and quickly filled to half full on a Tuesday night. Very nicely decorated and good menu. Food very nice and freshly cooked albeit a bit slow but you are warned that things are cooked from fresh. I agree the ladies serving could be a bit happier and not so serious. A fantastic escape and bit of normality from the madness up the road! Car park at side for approx. 10 cars.

A family of four adults decided to eat here after a day in Alton towers. We went in. Didn't feel welcomed at all the lady behind the bar barely acknowledged us when we was ordering drinks. The food was mediocre but the prices where very expensive. A very limited choice includes. Burgers. Steak and pasta (which was an extra £2) for chicken
Not happy

As group of 14 women staying just up the road at the Ramshorn Estate, we were just looking for somewhere to eat locally, we didn't expect much and we would have been happy with a bit of pub grub... how wrong we were! We were greeted by a really modern and welcoming restaurant, the waiter was lovely and coped with our large group seemlessly. Everyone was surprised by the menu choices, we had amazing tapas sharing starters and all the mains were incredible - no one had room for dessert! The food was really fresh and all 14 of us agreed it was some of the best pub food we'd ever had. Brilliant, would definitely recommend.

Recommended by the B&B owner where we stayed. One of the best steak and ale pies I have had. Very good food, very good service and very cosy place. Resturant standard food in a country bar setting.

After a day in Alton towers theme park, we wanted to stop off somewhere to get a late lunch before the journey home (Alton towers can be a little pricey)
After checking on trip advisor, I knew that this was the place that we should head for. We arrived at about 3:30pm and we were the only ones there (it was a Monday) but this only worked in our favour, the service was really quick and friendly, we were talked through the specials and given some recommendations from the menu. The vegetarians options available, were good and with a baked Camembert and breads to share to start, I then had a goats cheese salad while my partner had the special surf and turf, the food was excellent and reasonably priced, the chef was also easy going about some small requests.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the Alton towers area.
