We visited here one Friday evening, and had booked a table, Upon arrival we were very warmly greeted by the very friendly staff, they told us where are table was but also added we could sit anywhere else if we chose too, we decided to sit in the bar area. We could not fault the food at all, it was... More

Thank you for your feedback unfortunately on Saturday the coffee machine broke, we tried our best to fix it but was unsuccessful! I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your steak, if you had mentioned this on the night we could have rectified the problem as we normally get very good feedback on our steaks. We hope you change your... More

Often take a visit to The Robin Hood and we are always welcomed by the lovely staff. The Sunday lunches are superb, a full plate of delicious food, as well as the full normal menu and specials also being on offer, which is a bonus! I've previously had the chicken breast and the beef and both have been excellent and... More

Called in Monday 2nd January on way back from Macclesfield shopping for a drink with a view to eating. But! When we sat down with our drinks and noticed how dusty & dirty this place was we decided not to eat. Looked around and noticed window sills were dire in dust you could write your name in it. Throughout the... More

This came as recommendation on our canal boat holiday as it was a very short walk from bridge 61 and it did not disappoint. We arrived slightly cold after our day on the water and we're made very welcome. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was quick, hot and good. Would recommend to anyone passing by.

Visited this pub a few times and it's great every time! We visited this Sunday to try the new menu and were not disappointed! There was lots to choose from and the meals we had were very tasty and really good portions! They had the fires on in the pub when we arrived and was very warm and cosy! We... More

Visited on Monday 31/10/2016. I was on a two day break to walk the length of the Macclesfield canal, and this was my planned lunch stop on day 1. I had just walked about 9 miles from the start of the canal at Kidsgrove, so was looking forward to a rest and a hot meal. I arrived a few minutes... More

Visited this weekend for lunch with family. Food was served within 20 mins- always a good start! All the food was well presented and tasty. Puddings were to die for. Staff really friendly.
