“Great food & attentive service”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Booked a table in the restaurant for my in laws golden aniversary meal and all had the TDH menu @ £27.95 pp for 3 courses.
The menu had plenty of choices to suit everyone including vegetarians and the serving staff gave us plenty of time to make our choices whilst our drinks arrived.
When the food arrived the portions were huge and feshly prepared. The dressings on the salad leaves were subtle and enhanced rather than masked the flavours of the other items.
We all had the rib eye steak for our main couse and it was cooked to perfection for each of us with plenty of chips and vegetables and the sauce served in seperate sauce dishes so we could choose whether to add jus or peppercorn sauce to our steaks. If i had to make one negative comment i would suggest that they made thicker chips but that's just down to personal taste.
The pudding menu varies on a daily basis and there was a choice of about 4 items. As a diabetic they went out of their way to make me a fresh friut platter except it was liberally dusted with icing sugar & a sweet coulis!
The service was unhurried and we had a relaxed meal in a soothing atmosphere. Would highly recommend the restaurant for a meal for whatever the occasion or casual dining.

“Lovely food and astonishing value”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

I was glad I booked as the pub was very busy when we arrived. The restaurant is separate and we had a good table tucked away in a corner. Its likely you may spot a celeb or two and on this occasion Mr Flintoff (an outstanding all round England cricketer for those who may not know!) and family were dining. It was good to see several families out together.
Starters were mussels and chicken liver pate and came in good measure, perhaps a bit too generous for myself. The mussels were a decent size.
Mains, myself baked hake on a bed of a few new potatoes and vegetables and my wife the roast beef, acceptably rare, with a Yorkshire pudding. We finished off with apple crumble and treacle tart.
Neither of us were disappointed with the quality of the food or the service and as I alluded to in the title, excellent value. I certainly recommend.

With plenty of places to eat close by in Prestbury you will find that everything is good, so very good here is excellent elsewhere.
