We have been before but the story here remains unchanged, good food, reliable, but terrible service. They are under staffed, inexperienced and ineffective. The frozen mop nearby is better but as we found today always booked. Maybe that tells you something.

A lovely location with excellent service and very good food at a very reasonable price. Wise to book as it was obviously popular, but we'd go again if we up that way

We've passed this place many times and this time decided to pop in, we realise now what we've been missing. We hadn't booked a table and the restaurant was fully booked but a very pleasant member of staff helped to find us a table. We ordered a Sunday lunch which was really good. Although the meal was sufficient, we did... More

Came here for lunch. Found a seat straight away and ordered our lunch. It came really quick. However when I asked for mayonnaise, considering it was sauce in a small bowl had to wait a bit as the waitress asked the bar man to bring it over, instead of bringing It herself, which I didn't quite understand. Overall Enjoyed it... More

We stopped here one Saturday lunch time when driving back from Manchester to London via Wilmslow. Its part of a large chain of pubs but the food was surprisingly good considering the menu is standard across about 200 places. The staff were very welcoming and certainly gave no indication of being wage slaves in a large corporation. The food was... More

We ordered a lobster/prawn cocktail. No obvious lobster. Very poorly presented food. Main course roast- looked as if it had been thrown on the plate. This really put my Dad of his food and he has been struggling to eat much recently.

We went with family early on a Sunday evening for a family celebration. It has a nice old pub feel. There was a good selection on the menu which included several choices for Sunday lunch. The portion sizes were on the large size and very good. The service and staff were great. As we'd all signed up with Vintage Inns... More

Hi lovestodine40 Please allow me to apologise for the delays that you experienced on Christmas Day. Unfortunately we did experience timing problems between sittings for a variety of reasons.
