Lost and Found restaurant and bar, Knutsford


Digest this mini-review in 60 seconds


A quirky restaurant and bar in a Victorian town hall building with vaulted ceilings and striking decor. The main bar is on the ground floor, restaurant on the second.


Cocktails – or ‘Emily B. Kingsley’s Curious Libations’ as they are called here – are a big draw. But once you’ve enjoyed a classic (a Lost cocktail) or a bespoke version (Found) tuck into their big, hearty menu which features familiar classics presented with flair. We enjoyed a juicy Josper chicken satay skewer (£6.95) and a cured duck breast salad (£6.95), followed by a huge wild mushroom linguine (£10.50) and a smoked fish pie (£13.95).

The dessert sharing platter was superb – generous portions of chewy berry meringue, sweet cheese with plum and an apple tart crumble. It was good value (£12.50) too, but wine is on the pricey side –two large glasses of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc totalled £21.10.


Like a huge brasserie: stylish, buzzing, lively music but already the locals have taken it to their heart and it feels like the place to be.


Excellent. Friendly, accommodating, helpful young staff who know about the food – and Emily’s cocktails!


Three courses for two, with a glass of wine each and coffees was £82

The Lost and Found, Princess Street, Knutsford WA16 6BW. Tel: 01565 760096
