Saturday afternoon - nine for lunch (six adults and three children). Lovely quaint, "oldie/worldie," pub/eatery right in the middle of leafy Cheshire. Lovely greeting and welcome. Promptly shown to our table followed by order taken for drinks. Very comprehensive menu - definitely something for everyone. However, whilst this was a much quieter time of the afternoon, (2.30pm - 3.00pm), with... More

We visit the Blacksmiths on quite a regular basis. The food is normally very nice, with three different guest ales each week. The service can be a bit slow if the pub is very busy, but is always excellent. Very friendly staff makes for a nice evening out.

Just had a great evening meal here, the service was really friendly, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the food was fantastic. They are also dog friendly, even happy to serve food in the bar area where the dogs are welcome, which is just great.

We visited here for a family meal, food was cooked to perfection and delivered very quickly. This restaurant has been one of our favourites for a long time but recently the staff have made our experience there even better, tonight we were served by 'Lauren' who in my opinion has been the best waitress we have ever had whilst dining...

This pub offers fantastic service and I always have found the food to be consistently good. Served by Sophia and Mike tonight who were most pleasant and efficient and a credit to their employers.:-)
