Went here for sneaky lunch. This wS in Adlington. Beautiful setting. The food was stunning. I had the hanging kebab. Gorgeous steak. Didn't have pudding but my husband had a mini Guinness. A drink of the future we now re-create.

I've eaten here several times, and always found it to be very average in terms of food quality and service, but I think the Retreat mat have just slipped a little further. My last visit was with a larger group than I've normally visited with,...More
