There is not enough staff to cope in this place. We were told a 20minute wait on the food, which turned into an hour. No apology for the delay. The steak I ordered was well over medium rare but I didn't want to wait any longer for food, as I was starving. The place looks run down and definitely more... More

Decided to come here with my Brother and Sister in Law for the food challenge. Wasn't expecting much but it was fantastic. The challenge was much harder than expected. There appeared to be only one lady running the floor and she was beyond excellent and couldn't do enough for us. Cheers x

Had food here as I was staying at the Lodge behind it. Food and drink were what you'd expect from a pub chain, generic and not very memorable. No real personality in the place, glasses piled up on the table, staff uninterested and no sign of any leadership. Would I recommend it... I barely remember anything about it, it was... More

Got there, not too busy, after paid was told would be half an hour for a burger and fish, ok with that. Nearly an hour later and still not arrived. Shocking. People around us we're also complaining. Poor.

I did not stay in the motel but I went with my friend to the Pelican to watch the match and have a pint. There were many TV screens in the bar al showing Man City. We waited for 15 minutes at the bar to be served one of the regulars said to me that it's pathetic to have one... More

I absolutley love calling here for a steak meal when I've been to Altrincham. I haven't been for a while so I made a detour especially to call in on Saturday and I was not disappointed. I can't speak for other food served ther nor the nightlife, but I have no complaints at all about the service or the food... More

Overall the food was nice, just it took a while to order and there was no one clearing plates of tables, so when new customers were coming in they had to move the dirty plates so they could find seats. The staff were nice just not enough of them which let down the overall experience.
