Whilst The Mainwaring still isn't reaching previous heights in terms of quality and value-for-money, the food is good overall. The fish and chips was fine as was the burger and the pie. Service is good. Not the cheapest pub in the world but the return...More

This place was recommended by family and they weren't wrong. Fantastic pub grub. T-Bone steak was to die for.

A Pub/Restaurant that we returned to after six years of trepidation. However the wait was well worth it. Food cooked to perfection. Menu realistic, yet providing a seasonal change according to what they have. Waiting staff keen and efficient. A triumphant return to form.

I love this pub. I've known it for 50 years and, despite renovations which are inevitable, it stays very much the same. Its traditional in style and atmosphere and food. Its also in the village of Whitmore with a fabulous church and walks all round.

This is a local pub and so expect it to be casual, and is down a country lane in an upmarket part of the area. It's mainly locals and the staff are usually local youngsters who finish a shift and then join their friends in...More
