This is yet another over priced, so called gastro pub serving mediocre food and frozen chips!! I was also served a garlic baguette, straight from the freezer at Iceland circa 1970's. I despair. Where are the triple cooked fluffy chips to go with my steak...More

We were the only 3 people in the restaurant (never a good sign) the meal was stone cold, masked by the moderately warm gravy. Asked for horseradish, was presented with a pea size amount. Very very poor. Staff were lovely however.

10 of us went for a late Sunday lunch. Food was fantastic but the service was amazing. Young, enthusiastic, so professional. Great service is rare these days, but even rarer from such a young group. It was a pleasure to eat there.

The waiter was phenomenal, really made the dinner a pleasurable experience. We ordered a variety of dishes and they were all delicious. A couple of plates with squid done perfectly! Carpool to avoid disappointment with parking but otherwise highly recommended establishment

We visited recently for a family meal on a Tuesday evening around 6pm. It was quite but didn't feel empty. Staff were courteous and friendly. Food arrived promptly and was hot. Excellent quality, great choice and good value for money.

Description
We are delighted to have opened our first pub in the North West and what better location than stunning Alderley Edge. We have lovingly restored and renovated the building to highlight original features and create a warm welcoming bar, a beautiful dining room and a gorgeous garden for balmy summer days. Our delicious menu features French brasserie classics alongside British pub favourites all lovingly cooked from scratch by our chefs using the best of the season's ingredients. Our carefully chosen wine list features some of the world's best wines whilst we will be showcasing local guest ales at the bar. A warm welcome awaits from you from General Manager Jess and her team and we look forward to seeing you very soon.
