Dear Gerry, the warmth of our welcome is something we pride ourselves on. That 'old fashioned' hospitality is NOT a thing of the past here in Great Budworth. Really pleased to hear you enjoyed the ambience of this Historic Inn.

Been here a couple of times over the past few weeks. First time was horrendous, food (chicken and beef) over cooked and dry as a flip flop in the Sahara! Despite that went back again a few weeks later and marginally better but not great!...More
