The atmosphere her is lovely. Open fire and very warm on a frosty day, which was most welcome after our walk in Delamere Forest. We hadn't booked, but were welcomed and given a table straight away. We had sirloin and gammon steaks, which were ample for us. Not keen on the chunky chips. I think the pub went off for... More

After a long walk in Delamere, 7 of us (a family of 4 and a family of 3) went to the Goshawk for lunch. We have come here more often. Not only is it conveniently located, but as soon as you step inside it has this lovely country pub type feel; open fire, big bar, a few nooks and crannies.... More

Went for a light Sunday lunch. Greeted with good service in nice surroundings. Loved the roaring fires which gave it a very homely feel. We only wanted something light as we were eating out later too, so the chef kindly put on for roast beef sandwiches with gravy for us even though the menu stated we could not have them... More

Ate here twice recently, on the Friday night the service was great, very attentive, nothing too much trouble and the food was lovely. The following night there was obviously a change in staff - we struggled to get drinks or anyone to take our order, despite the restaurant being almost empty. The food wasn't up to the standard of the... More

Visited here recently for lunch. Have been before but sadly was left disappointed on this occasion. Food was average, I ordered the pie which came with pickled cabbage and chips. Pickled cabbage was so dry it was bordering on grey, presumably it had been sitting on the hot plate too long. My wife had a vegetable curry which came with... More

An early Sunday lunch may be the busiest time to eat, but you would have thought the service staff would expect it to be busy! Unfortunately, we were forgotten by the waiters as they were distracted serving all the young families and kids running around the main dining room. When drink orders were taken (all soft drinks) they took too... More

Re-visited following a change of ownership. The place was a lot quieter than I remember, but our waitress was very attentive and the meals were pretty good!

After a bracing walk in Delamere Forest 6 of us (3 Adults, 3 Grandchildren) went for an evening meal. We had booked but were early which was no problem for the friendly Staff. Menus & entertainment packs were promptly delivered, Wine & drinks ordered (excellent Viognier). The Waitress recommended the Pie of the Day (Chicken, Ham & Leek) which was... More

Previously visited on numerous occasions and enjoyed the lively atmosphere, decent food and selection of beers. Hydes have bought the place and the beer selection is Hydes plus one! The food is typically average. The atmosphere was a bit flat. Ok so it was Boxing Day evening but even so.........we won't be rushing back. Not terrible but a typical chain... More
