I love Chef and Brewer and took my other half for our first date to the C&B in Hyde, but the food and service was very poor at the Macclesfield C&B. The restaurant was not even busy but there was a 25 minute wait for starters after it took 15 minutes to even get a menu and order. The soup... More

The pub is easy on the eye from inside and out, with a good menu which is averagely priced for a chain pub, which you come to expect. We visited as a four on Saturday at 3.30 pm and were told there would be a 45 minute wait, but given no reason why? The pub itself looked at about 25%... More

Waited over 45 minutes for mains and there were only 3 other tables. Food was dry, even salads were not fresh, some cold food some tasteless and over cooked or re heated.

Friends arranged to meet me at the Blacksmith in January on their way down south to drop their mum off. Bar staff and waitress alike were pretty indifferent; a bit of friendliness would have been nice. One chicken dish was off the menu so 'mum' ordered a different one. My friend's fish&chips were the smallest portion I've seen, my other... More

I lunched with friends who all enjoyed their food however as my original choice was unavailable I ordered a jacket potatoe with beans and cheese. I was disappointed to find the potato burnt and dry, salad garnish was limp so disappointed and when I told the waitress she just offered an apology which in my view doesn't make it better.... More

Ate lunch at this Public House / Restaurant today, Monday 20 March 2017 - three of us, two grandparents and 2yr old grand daughter. Nicely received by a friendly Waitress and noticed there were very few customers. However, we subsequently experienced a lengthy delay after ordering our meals which were eventually delivered by an indifferent Waiter. Food was just about... More
