We went for my boyfriend's birthday and it was perfect. The lunch menu is worth every penny and the waitress was very attentive. She had overheard it was his birthday and arranged a nice surprise of a few delicious caramels and chocolate which was so lovely!

Hispi was brilliant, I stopped in for a quick lunch on the way up further north and was hugely impressed. The food was delicious, went for the very reasonable set menu (2 courses for £16). Duck hearts on brioche to start were good but the Beef Skirt was truly exceptional. Service very attentive and friendly.

We had a wonderful evening at hispi. Natalie was so attentive and yet never overbearing. She made our night with little touches that went a long way. I am coeliac and not once was it a problem. Couldn’t recommend enough.

Don’t get out a lot anymore and would happily eat here whenever I do get the opportunity. Excellent service and we’ll prices for what felt like a really special meal. The confit salmon and the feartherblade beef with the house chips were amazing. Highly recommended

Busy and buzzy for a Monday night. Congrats treat for my daughter. Been to Wreckfish but first time to Hispi (serial crowdfunder). Fab food and lovely service. Daughter had to be restrained from licking the plate.....she's 26!

Very good standard as always, particularly the Paris Brest dessert.
However, the portion size of the lamb was pretty stingy- 2 small slices of lamb rump plus meatball for £22 was a bit mean spirited.
Should have stuck with my usual pork chop.

I took my parents to Hispi for lunch on Father's Day. All three courses were absolutely beautiful (the portions were spot on too so we could manage three courses without feeling uncomfortably full). The wine was great too. I would unreservedly recommend Hispi.

We went for fathers day. Three of us. We sat were you could see the kitchen. And how busy they were.
The service and greeting from when we came in to when we left was brilliant, friendly and welcoming.
The food portions were perfect. We ordered 2 adult beef dinners and a child's beef dinner( I have to say there wasn't much size difference, they were very generous.) My partner said it was up there with the best roast dinners he has ever had.
We will be back for one of our date nights.

Looking for somewhere nice to eat with my husband and asked for recommendations on a FB page in Cheadle. A few people mentioned Hispi and so I booked and we went for a rare child-free night out. A beautiful restaurant with amazing food and some of the nicest staff we've ever met! And with a bill of less than £100 (including a £10 tip) which covered mains, desserts, two gins and an Irish coffee, you don't really get much better! We'd definitely go back again and recommend to others :)

This was our first visit to Hispi. Having read other reviews we were expecting good things, we weren’t disappointed.
The staff were attentive and efficient, and nice and friendly. The food was excellent, great choice and perfectly cooked.
The restaurant has a good buzz about it but not too loud, except for the table of 3 next to us who made sure everyone knew what they were talking about!!

This was the third time I ate at Hispi and it did not disappoint. From the warm reception when we arrived, to the prompt and attentive service, and to the server's knowledge of the food and wine - and good recommendations. For those of us challenged by age, who find it hard to converse in noisy surroundings, the ambience was vibrant but not noisy. Of course, the food and wine are Hispi's strong suit. I was not surprised by the high quality of these, but my guests were very, very impressed by it. Not cheap, but you could pay a lot more for much less good dining. Well done and thanks.

Great restaurant with excellent food, not your average Sunday lunch way better, the beef was so tender and the apple crumble was melt in the mouth. They also have a great menu and good deal for 3 courses. Highly recommend, will definitely be back.

The service was excellent but unfortunately the main course was barely warm. The waitress offered to warm the food up but by then we had already started our dinner. The extra potatoes we ordered and gravy were piping hot which then highlighted how cold the main meal was. Such a shame as we are regulars and this has never happened before.
