Pate and toast with a bit of salad to start, I had roast fillet of lamb my husband had beef rib on the bone, and we both had ginger crumble cheese cake for dessert. The portions were generous...

Called in for a quick lunch on passing. Both mine and my husband's meals were tasteless. I had the chicken korma with chips, naan, saag aloo, onion bhajis, and poppadoms; my husband had the fish and chips. I can quite honestly say that, apart from the slight taste of pepper in the saag aloo, the meal was entirely without taste.... More

The menu had plenty of choice at respectable prices... there were several starter options for approx £4-6... about ten main meal choices for approx £10... and desserts for approx £4... the mains choice included... whitby scampi & chips,...

We have visited the Vale Royal Abbey Arms many times as we often camp at the nearby Delamere forest Caravan and camping club site but our recent visit was exceptional because our eldest daughter was with us and she has a severe allergy to peas and beans and other legumes. On enquiring Zoe who served us we found that there... More

This is such a nice pub. The staff are always welcoming, the food is good with an excellent pint, what more do you need..... The kids love it with the outdoor climbing frame and the colouring on the back of their menu. We'll definitely be back.

Unfortunately my parents decided to pop over at short notice for lunch, and our two primary choices were all fully booked. So when I called Abbey Arms and they could fit us in with ease, I should have been surprised. I attempted to ring at around 1:15 as my parents were running late but nobody answered the phone. The place... More

Ordered a chicken breast burger but when it came it only had a few measly slices of chicken on it, probably about 1/4 of a breast if that even, so was quite disappointed and ended up having to eat my mates onion rings and was still hungry when left as I am a grown man and a few french fries...
