This pub looks fab from the street and the welcome does not disappoint. Most friendly landlady and staff. We ate steak and ale pie and innkeepers pie and both were excellent and best of all, really hot. Lots of well cooked veg to go with. The local beer is the perfect accompaniment too. This is good pub food, very trad English.

Recently visited here with my boyfriend. We were at the bar waiting to order drinks for 5 minutes. This wouldn't have been a problem but they weren't busy and we could see the staff on their phones at the back. We eventually asked if they were serving and the lady came and took our order. We ordered our food 'inn keepers pie' and 'fish and chips'. They arrived, my boyfriends pie was good and he was happy. My fish and chips were also quite nice until I came across a long brown hair (it wasn't mine either). I promptly took it back to the counter and explained and showed the foreign object to the bar man. He took it away - no apology. He then realised he had not asked what I wanted so half way across the bar he asks "do you want another". I daren't say no. I said yes please if it's not too much trouble.
When the new plate came my boyfriend had finished his, but there was no apology, nothing.
The pub is nice but the staff are unprofessional and cold. When we left I said 'thanks, bye' and got no response.
Won't be going again.

We ate in here with friends. The food was average but the beer was outstanding. Good choice and well looked after which is not often found these days. The food was good without being exceptional. I had fish and chips , the chips were great but the fish wasn't that good. The staff were very good and attentive. We tried to get in the night before but as we had a dog there wasn't any availability in the bar where dogs are allowed so we booked for a later visit and glad we did

Great little friendly pub; most excellent dinner there, piping hot too!
Excellent local beers to go with dinner and the prices were very reasonable.

Being in the middle of nowhere surrounded by Peaks; there was a lousy mobile signal at our cottage; but the Cheshire has secure free wi-fi; which meant we could catch up on e-mails etc after dinner.

This was much appreciated.

What was more appreciated is the chairs are nice and comfy too!
Thanks
