“Really enjoyable meal”

Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: The Alderley is a split-level conservatory on wooded slopes overlooking the Cheshire countryside. The family-run feel of the main sandstone country house is felt here too, where warm browns, gentle lighting and exemplary front-of-house staff make you really rather comfortable. The food's exceptionally good; all freshly made and sourced locally, as the breads and homemade butters testify. Temptations are many, like rump of Cheshire lamb, slow-cooked tomatoes, baby roasted potatoes and garden mint, £23.15, and 'Treacletown' pudding with butterscotch ice cream and toffee sauce, £6.50. Not to mention seared liver and bacon with herb mash and redcurrant jus from the table d'hote lunch menu, £13.95 for two excellent courses. Meals can be scaled up or down, as you like.

“Really enjoyable meal”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I can't believe we live so near to this fabulous place and have never been before. We will certainly be returning.
We had the seven course tasting menu and were very pleased with each and every dish. The food was excellent and very well presented. The wine was excellent also.
I would not say it was overly expensive for what we had either.
The waitresses were very pleasant and attentive. I must say there was a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant too.
I will certainly be recommending this lovely restaurant to friends, and as I said, will look forward to returning.

“Overly attentive and a little pretentious”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

The food is good quality though you won't ever feel too full due to the small portions. The biggest put off for me was the overly attentive waiters. They were there all the time whether it was to put your coat on the back of your seat, to fill your drink, to remove the crumbs from the table, to straighten your serviette when you left the table, etc. some people may not have a problem with this but I found it an invasion of privacy.

“Relaxed Evening With Good Food & Great Wines”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Visited this restaurant with friends and selected the 7 course taster menu, food was plentiful, tasted delicious and was served with great accompanying wines. Waiter was very friendly and attentive, and the Sommelier was very helpful and obliging in helping us select extra wines to suit our varying tastes. Very relaxed, easy going and comfortable restaurant with an ambient atmosphere. Expensive but well worth it....... You know you have had a great evening when the drinks bill exceeds the food :)

“Best restaurant in the area”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

I don't know why it has taken me so long to write a review about the restaurant in the Alderley Edge Hotel. My wife and I have been dining here for over twenty five years, and with very few exceptions, the standard over the years has remained commendably high. As far as we are concerned, it is not only the best place to eat in Alderley Edge, but probably one of the best in Cheshire.
The restaurant, in a large conservatory room, is most attractive, light and airy,with plenty of space between the tables. The service is attentive and friendly, and the standard of the food is almost invariably superb. It seems to be, that whichever chef is in charge of the kitchen, the quality and presentation of the food is first class. Sunday lunch is a delightful gastronomic and social occasion, as well as excellent value. It makes such an agreeable change to be able to dine in gracious surroundings without the Mrs. Cheshire's "who can laugh loudest" competitions so much in evidence elsewhere in the bars of Alderley Edge and Wilmslow.
The recent addition of the Bistro provides a relaxing and less formal environment, but still with the consistently high standards of food preparation, presentation, and service. The weekday lunch menu offering any three course from the menu for £19.99 represents excellent value. Try the syrup sponge pudding for an object lesson in airy light sponge and amusing presentation.

“Welcoming”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We were a largish group of friends from different parts of the country getting together for the first time in quite a while. The staff showed great courtesy and patience waiting for our food orders while we got through our greetings and first catch up. A number of of our group were vegetarians and again, the staff and kitchen were very accommodating as we requested variations on the menu. Two of us went right off the menu for omelette and salad. It was delicious. The venue is stylish and comfortable, a lovely setting for our reunion.
