“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This Old Rectory is local to us and we find it for a good value lunch from time to time.
A refundable parking charge has been introduced, presumably to deter town centre shoppers from taking advantage of the previously free parking.
Staff are always friendly. On entry, one can find a table prior to ordering food and drink at the bar. (at very busy times e.g. Sundays) one may need to wait to be seated and there could be a queue.
Staff are very helpful and friendly.
Food is well presented and good value for money.
Surroundings very pleasant and clean.

“Fairly average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Fairly average for prices and food - nothing special but then could not complain either. Have eaten here a few times when in Stockport to meet friends. It is a nice restaurant/pub with a hotel attached. Easy to park and not far from centre of town.

“MEAL WHILST TRAVELLING TO CONFERENCE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

I had to travel from my home in south to a conference in Manchester area. On the way home I visited THE OLD RECTORY. Access to premises was difficult to find. Car Parking cost £2 BUT WAS REFUNDED when meal / drinks were paid for at bar. (refund voucher is part of ticket. Rip ticket in half and leave parking section visible in car and take refund with you. Disabled access is very good (no steps, no slopes, no tight area's to get to find a table. In nice weather a patio is available with plenty of tables. Inside, seating / tables are well presented. place feel pleasant to sit and eat meals / have a drink. Staff do all they can to make your visit welcoming. their uniforms were were clean & smart in appearance. Food is enjoyable. (in my party was 4 people, we all eat something different) good selection on menu. Toilets (plenty of them) were clean and nicely set out. pricing was reasonable for quality / quantity of food on large plates. (I didn't have a desert as the main course was ample to fill me up)
I like the place. Will use it when I am in Manchester again. I may even use it regularly when I'm passing through to join Motorway network into North of England, Scotland etc. CCTV is in operation and this gives comfort to leaving vehicles in car park.
Yes this really is a good place to pop in for either a coffee, bark drink or complete meal with everything your would expect of top class restaurant in any city.

“Dreadful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

We visited The Old Rectory on Sunday 17.5.14 to start with you have to pay for the car park which is refunded when you order. We waited at the 'wait here to be seated sign' the member of staff looked a bit shocked to see anyone standing there and asked what we wanted. I asked for a table for 7 and was told it would be 'a minute' he then came back and said he would just serve someone at the bar and then get me a table. A while later another member of staff told me there was a 30-45 minute wait which was a very different story. We decided to leave as the wait was to long. We asked for a refund on the car park which was eventually given reluctantly and all in 50p's which I couldn't help thinking was making a point. Don't think I will be visiting again staff were very rude and unwelcoming.
