“Fantastic food with great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

We stayed for a night and booked dinner in the restaurant. We had the 5-course taster menu which was great. The food was fantastic and whilst portions were not huge, they didn't need to be - it was nice to finish the meal without feeling uncomfortable.
I had some pan-fried sea bass with some citrus gels (not 100% sure what they were) but how can something so simple taste so amazing?! The lamb main course was something else... and the pink champagne iced lolly also stands out!

“Good but why ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

So we were taken here by friends. Thank you to them, we love you both. Firstly we all opted for the five course taster menu. I like taster menu's and the food was really good but ....... Why offer me three levels of taster menu from £35 odd to £70 odd plus wine 'flights'. I want to taste your chefs best offering so why not do that as a single taster menu. These should be you signature dishes and demonstrate you local produce, skill as a chef and reflect you as a restaurant. I like the wine flight but why not offer either a basic wine fight or a fine wines experience? Simples. So back to the subject of this evening. It was good, nice food presented well with pleasant wines. The service was good and the staff from start to finish were friendly. The venue has a reputation for being posh but in truth I found it friendly, pleasant, efficient and a comfortable experience. This is important because some may think this venue all to posh when in truth it's a nice balance of good food, nice surroundings and really nice staff who made us welcome. My only issue was the daft choice of taster menu which should simply have reflected all that us good about the Alderley Edge Hotel.

“An experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

A party of 8 when for a special birthday dinner. I was told that a table would be reserved for us for drinks before dinner. This did not happen, so there was a struggle to get everyone around a table. The service was good and the food whilst well presented and of a good quality was small in portion and at times not totally recognizable to the details on the menu. The party included 2 teenage young ladies who found it difficult to find on a relatively small menu. items that they found exciting. I would have preferred to see the menu clearer in the description of the courses.

“Wedding party Easter Saturday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Our son and new wife celebrated their wedding at the hotel on Easter Saturday. It was magnificent . The staff were kind and attentive without being obtrusive,The food was superb and was certainly the best wedding meal we have ever had anywhere . The only minor criticism was a slip up on one of the vegetarian options.
My wife and I had a room for the night followed by breakfast both of which were beautiful and finished off the weekend nicely . So 5 stars and full praise and plaudits for the Alderley Edge hotel . Thanks again to management and staff for working so hard to make a very special day truly exceptional and memorable. Perhaps I should apologise to any residents who may have been disturbed by the band. But we were all having a great time and the band- the famous "Fraudsters" really whipped up a storm . ( highly recommended too -see you tube )

“superb quality and fantastic service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

We had a function room for a family party, the staff were very attentive all evening and madeit a thoroughly enjoyable occasion. The food was fantastic quality and taste but let down by the portion sizes which could not have been smaller. Overall we had a wonderful familly occasion and were very well treated by all at the hotel, I would certainly come again.
