Thoroughly enjoyed my birthday lunch there. I'm a huge fan of the Real Housewives of Cheshire and wanted to have that experience on that day being at one of my favourite places on the show.
Food, drinks and ambience was everything 🙌🏾

We made a reservation for my daughter’s 18th birthday due to the venue being spectacular but we didn’t have high hopes for the food, we were wrong, the food was gorgeous. We had the best prawn linguine we’ve ever had and we’ve had a lot lpl!!! I lost my taste and smell due to covid and was over the moon that i could actually taste my food, it was so tasty and seasoned to perfection and very generous portion sizes The drinks were amazing too, such pretty finishing touches. Gorgeous ambiance, would definitely recommend and return.

Was seated and ordered, no physical menus you have to use your phone. Ordered a lamb roast and a chicken roast, and a drink each from the waitress
Drinks and Meals were brought to the table. Was not offered any condiments, salt or pepper. Had to wait several minutes to catch a server to ask for mint sauce. Asked how the meals were and was told the lamb was very nice and the chicken was dry and she just said ill let the chef know and walked off, and that was it we never saw her again, she didnt come back to take an order for any more drinks or dessert. Very poor service.

Unique experience, been a few times and still enjoy the food and dancers! A few drunks blocked view occasionally, but would recommend this venue to anyone wanting a good experience. Not one for a quiet meal out though!

Absolutely amazing restaurant. When we arrived we weren’t happy with our table but were moved straight away. We didn’t know which sushi to pick and our server was very knowledgable and recommend 3 of them. Would love to come back one evening as I’m sure the vibe would be great 10 out of 10

The restaurant visually is lovely but the food wasn’t that great at all. Also the entertainment only came every half hour/45 minutes. The Mac and cheese was awful. I liked the chips x

Good atmosphere, good entertainment. Average service. Food was below the expected quality. A little on the pricey side for the quality of the food.

We went for our Sunday roast and the food was really disappointing it came in a large yorkshire so had a really soggy consistency throughout. I also got cauliflower cheese extra which was watery and just bad.

I booked this afternoon tea for my birthday after seeing it on Instagram… what a waste of money that was! It didn’t come out presented well it was thrown on a plate and the sandwiches wasn’t finger sandwich it was a full slice of bread with a lump of hard butter in the middle… they wasn’t any scones and the sweets were in cupcake cakes looked ridiculous I ordered English tea and when I went to pour it into my cup a leaf fell out into my cup when I asked it was a mint leaf which must’ve been stuck in the spout of the tea pot and maybe not washed properly… very poor service and food we left it … it really was that bad … think on when booking this place … ruined my birthday experience … 🥲

Booked for an anniversary meal. We were seated and ordered drinks. Our drinks arrived and as we went to order our food we informed them of my nut allergy. The manager came over and informed us that they are unable to cater to customers with a nut allergy. We were unable to eat there. Considering the reputation and prices this is unacceptable.

We did enjoy our meal the food was lovely and quick arrival from ordering the atmosphere was good. Our only complaint was the service overall the place was very busy and so you do expect wait times however I don’t think our waiter ever actually came to check on us during our reservation other than bringing our food. We didn’t feel very ‘valued’ as a customer.

We had a great time food amazing and drinks are fab service was exceptional
only gripe is some stuff the customers do but it can’t be helped this place is an Instagramers paradise but when you’re trying to enjoy ur food and other customers around you are more in grossed in their phones and taking selfie’s then the quality that is around them it’s a bit of a put off yes you are at a beautiful restaurant but enjoy your food and conversation there’s all ways time for selfie in the bath tub later all that aside it was a really good experience and would definitely come again
