Popped into The Risley Park in Risley on a late Sunday afternoon. The pub has a good reputation locally so we thought we'd give it a try. The pub is situated a couple of mins from J25 M1 and has a large car park. There are plenty of beers and ales on offer, the menu is comprehensive and offers a variety of meals categorised by meal type - meat, burgers, veg, fish etc. We ordered steak and burgers and were really impressed with the quality and size we received.

Definitely worth a visit if your in the area.

Travelling home from a business trip I stopped off here for a late lunch. I had no motive for stopping other than I drove past on my journey, but I'm so pleased I did........

The pub itself is set back slightly from the road, but has a lovely outside eating/seating area at the front and the inside decor is welcoming and clean/tidy. It has the feel of a welcoming pub.

I was immediately welcomed by one of the 2 friendly female staff, who explained the menus to me and offered me a seat anywhere I like while she brought my drink over. After enough time to get myself comfortable my order was taken.

The selection of starters, meals, sharers and combos was a little overwhelming, mainly as I wanted to try everything!!! I opted for a creamy mushroom starter and a 'boozy' bullock pie. As you can see the starter was ample to pass for a small main. The mushrooms were perfectly cooked and served in a delicious garlic/tomato sauce. I thoroughly enjoyed the starter but left the salad to leave room for my main.

The main course came next and did not disappoint. The 'boozy' pie was nothing short of genius, with large chunks of beef in a tasty gravy covered with a perfect pastry. Served with chips and veg (which I was told came with free top ups if needed). Needless to see there was ample food that I could not even think about asking for a top up.

The 2 staff 'Front of house' were commendable. Constantly tending to bar customers, striking up conversations and tending to diners with ease, ensuring tables were cleaned promptly and the bar was always tidy. A very professional service was seen by both.

All in all I will definitely call again if passing. I'd like to try those crab cakes and see what other delights are on the menu. Well done Ridley Park :)

A dozen of us came here for lunch and all of us enjoyed it. The place has been spruced up no end in recent times and plenty of space outside and in. Drinks were quickly served at the bar and we had a huge jug of water for the table too. Range of food on offer caters to everyone with starters and mains, baguettes, salads, jacket potatoes and snacks. We ordered a real variety of things from the menu and everyone agreed the food was very good. Well done To all the staff for making it a lovely occasion and I fully recommend it to everyone.
