I had a lovely meal of Salmon, potatoes and seasonal vegetables with a jug of lemon sauce. I cannot fault the meal. I requested the 'buttered' potatoes to be served without butter and it was not a problem. Lovely pub meal at a good price. I will happily eat here again.

Unfortunately after deciding on this venue for Christmas dinner we had a very disappointing experience Service was very slow, we had to initiate every contact....to be shown to our table...to receive starters...for the starters to be cleared etc No Christmas spirit whatsoever, staff were visible stressed and didn't want to be there. Food was very poor quality, starters were tasteless,... More

Turned up here today - never been before. What a lovely place it is. The decor is good and they still had the Christmas decorations up, they looked really lovely and you could tell that a lot of work had gone into them. We had a drink and some lunch. I had the scampi, it was lovely, hot and tasty.... More

Sadly our much anticipated family Xmas dinner at the Governers was a total car crash of an occasion. Upon arrival our 3pm table had been given to another party, we were however seated around 3.20 and it was fine. After sitting there was no welcome from the staff , in fact after 30 minutes we had to initiate first contact!... More

Fabulous food good choice and all really tasty. We were a group of 14 girls from work and everyone of us loved it. Reasonably priced too. The portions are huge so you might not want to go in that slightly tight outfit! I love the refit and the xmas decorations are absolutely beautiful. I will definitely come again with friends...

I went here reluctantly today because my last visit for a drink months ago was negative, however today was a different story. The interior was the first change, I don't know if they have had a revamp but what they certainly have is more pride, the whole restaurant was spotless. It was decorated for Christmas tastefully but in addition all... More

Last night a few (14) members of my family got together for a pre Christmas meal and enjoyed the Festive Fayre Menu. I must say that the food was very good and excellent value for money. The staff were all very helpful and the table was beautifully decorated ........sorry but it was a real mess by the time we all... More

Albeit a pet hate of the use of the word Xmas rather than CHRISTmas the decoration in the The Governors House Cheadle Hulme look fantastic. Really festive and classy. The large interior Christmas tree being the highlight of the decoration. Maxine has done a great job getting everyone in the mood already. With the recent refurbishment and change of management...

The recent one in sept 2016 is horrible , they have put in very bright lighting with naked bulbs without shades , particularly in the front area . They have televisions that are not wanted of required They... More
