We buy as much as we can from local farmers and small artisan producers. All our meat is raised and grazed in Cheshire, from certified farms and hung for a minimum of 21 days. We also grow our own organic garlic and herbs on site for use exclusively in our kitchens.

Having been given a taster menu for 2 voucher for Christmas , visited Belle Époque this week with my wife .
Initial impression on arrival was excellent , it was a very cold evening and the door was opened for us in to a nice warm room with a burning log fire . The staff were friendly with good humour , our coats were taken and we were shown to our table . The table had been set with the necessary range of cutlery for the taster menu to come .
Included in our offer was a glass of prosecco which was poured in to our glasses at the table and we were invited to sit back and enjoy the food .
My description of this review is a food experience which indeed it was , the menu had been well balanced with an array of ingredients . As previously mentioned in reviews the 8 courses amount to a nice sized meal in total , introducing you to ingredients that you may not normally have chosen . Each dish was beautifully presented and the timing between dishes I felt was just right . This probably rates as one of the best meals I have had and will definitely return and perhaps consider staying overnight next time .
As you will have gathered by now this carries my recommendation for you to consider trying the restaurant .

This restaurant is well worth a visit! The location is great in the middle of charming Knutsford making it easy to enjoy a few pre (or post) dinner drinks in local bars.

Our second visit and we tried the 8 course tasting menu again. Firstly don't be put off by the '8' courses! Chef does so well to make sure its akin to a well balanced meal and definitely not excessive.

The main plus though is the quality of the foods used and the amazing work of chef. If your food palette is up for some of the finest foods in the north west then this place fits the bill.

Though a little dearer - it is a fine dining experience and you do taste the difference. We went with friends and all really enjoyed it and will return.

Also worth noting that the atmosphere is also very pleasant and the staff are attentive and have an excellent knowledge of each dish and the ingredients used. Makes for a most enjoyable evening out and would definitely recommend!!

Second time eaten here. Food good but taster menu extremely small portions. Eight courses probably only equivalent to a main course. Restaurant busy. Staff friendly. Warm and welcoming on a cold night.
