Ate dinner here on a Wednesday evening. The two guys waiting on were pretty efficient & the complimentary bread & butter was a nice welcoming touch. This is one of the first spots I've eaten at that has Strawberry & Lime Rekorderlig cider on tap - excellent choice. At approx 19:10 I'd missed their "Early Diners" menu by about ten... More

Located in one of the nicest areas of Altrincham, House is hidden away in a lovely setting. Lovely little restaurant, very comfortable with great atmosphere. The food is excellent! I highly recomend the Steak or the Salmon Linguini. Extensive wine list with something to please everyone. I cannot say enough good things about this place, my new favorite.

I visited recently for my work's Christmas dinner. The staff were excellent and the service was very good. The food was lovely and the atmosphere was good. My only criticism was about the portion size of the Christmas turkey dinner. There was literally just one slice draped over the veg. My colleagues had either steaks or fish and the size... More

Please ensure your fish is cooked and no pink in the middle. I will be back to see you again as I love the ambience but only when my tummy has regained its composure.

Tucked away in the idyllic setting of Altrincham’s Goose Green, The House has built its reputation on providing excellent food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Having maintained its authentic charm over the years, this hidden gem has become a popular haunt amongst locals.Since the restaurant first opened its doors in 2005, The House has continued to grow as a venue. It launched ‘The House Wine Bar’ next door in 2007, which introduced live music and entertainment to the green and most recently in December 2011, The House celebrated the opening of its new premises at ‘No. 13’, which has been completely remodelled into a spacious new dining area and state of the art kitchen.
