My Wife and I are regular Sunday evening diners at the Legh Arms and have yet to have a bad experience, and this week was no exception. We both had steak, 1 rib eye and the other a rump, and both were cooked to perfection. We have always found the staff to be very pleasant and very efficient, and nothing is to much trouble. There is always a great atmosphere, especially if a table is celebrating something special. We always treat this as our “date night” and we look forward to this every weekend. We can’t wait for the doors to open again soon so we can carry on this ritual.

We really enjoyed everything at the Lego Arms. Service and staff were excellent, the food we had was superb. I had the boneless lamb Henry which I highly recommended and my girlfriend had the plaice and prawns.

It was our first visit, couldn’t fault the service and quality of the food it was lovely
My only criticism is that there was not a great deal of choice, was a bit limited would like to see maybe some pasta choices and specials

This was the second time we’ve been since lockdown in March - the first time was the week before, where we waited 40 mins for a table to become available. Then it was another 20 mins before anyone came to take our food order. The food was good when we eventually got it but we presumed the delay was due to the place being so busy.

This time around we waited again around 25mins before I asked how long before we’d be shown to a table and we were instantly told go to that table over there - which had been empty all the time we had been sat in there! We had to make our own way over. The wrong menu was put on our Table, then we were told after choosing what we were having (roast dinners) that there were no roast dinners left!! We were then given another menu to choose from. We didn’t wait long for the food and it was a good standard however a couple of the waitresses looked like they didn’t want to be there and didn’t smile once, but again we put it down to them being busy and probably having a busy day.

We are however not tempted to go back and try again for a while now, we’ll be looking for somewhere else for our Sunday dinners!

Such a shame as the first visit we just shrugged off as an off day. We will wait a while before we go back, when the world calms down a bit again.

Firstly, 10 out of 10 for making us feel safe!
So much choice still (no cutting back on menu selections here..) and Butterfly King Prawns were a perfect starter, light, tasty with a lovely warm kick from the Chilli dip... and our other starter was the Ribs...so much meat absolutely delicious!
Had a dilemma with mains as really wanted the Greek Salad and the Scampi, our lovely waitress suggested having the Salad with a scampi topping....OMG brilliant idea, what a combo, would certainly have that again....and only charged a little extra, well worth it. No room for dessert (must admit I never do when I eat here!) Thanks for a Sunday lunch and with no washing up for me!

Our reservation was at 1400 for a 90 minute slot. The dining room was spotless, social distancing clearly observed.

Our starter and main course were excellent, and served by a delightful young waitress.

We decided to order a dessert.‘...but despite the time just being short of 1500 we were a little surprised to be told that the kitchen was already closed, and the chef gone home.

Never mind, being deprived of a Sticky Toffee Pud won’t stop us returning to the Legh Arms soon.

We visited one Sunday tea time having been numerous times before. Not sure if the chef has changed but the food was not up to its usual standard. In fairness the fish and chips were delicious but the chicken curry was a disappointment, it tasted like the sauce was a packet mix. The chicken burger was average and lacked flavour. We were pretty disappointed to be honest as in the past the food has been very good. On the plus side the service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and efficient.
