She was warm and friendly when we arrived. Seated us straight away and got our drinks. Food was out within 10 mins of ordering and was amazing. Only thing I'd change is the Wifi isn't great

We went to the F&Bs in Cheshire oaks recently and it was awful. Came here from lack of options but was pleasantly surprised. Waitress was helpful, friendly and the food wasn't amazing but it was what we expected. Good value with the summer offers.
