Visited the knockerdown on various occasions but not since the refurbishment, On entering the premises we were met by Dan who gave us some menus and managed to find us a table in the restaurant. I myself had the chicken Fajitas and my partner had a Roast pork dinner. Both meals extremely well presented and tasted great! Thanks to Dan and all the rest of the staff at the knockerdown for a lovely evening!!

Being newly diagnosed with coeliac disease, I have been having trouble finding restaurants that can accommodate my requirements. This restaurant went over and above and exceeded all expectations! The choices on offer were all delicious!
Becky our waitress could not have been more helpful and with 7 of us she made us individually feel welcome. We shall be returning again in a few days. Thank you

When my wife said we were going to the Knockerdown, which I'd been passed many times, I wasn't overly keen! However when we parked up in our beloved MG and went inside, it came to mind "don't judge a book by its cover" it was really very charming nothing flashy but a nice atmosphere for a bottle of plonk. We didn't eat but the grub being presented in the restaurant looked very good. If your visiting Carsington Water the Knockerdown is worth a visit.
