Alderley Edge Hotel Bar & Restaurant
Given a more airy look and a less formal ambience as part of a £2.5m transformation, the restaurant is looking good, and head chef Sean Sutton has come in to his own with a menu of modern British dishes, often heartier than you would expect. Carnivores are well-catered for with offerings from the charcoal-fired Josper grill.

Head chef Olivier Troalen and his wife Adele run a restaurant which is French through and through. Look at the menu: Cuisse De Grenouilles A La Ma Façon (frogs’ legs in garlic butter), Lapin A La Didier (rabbit bon bon, rabbit leg confit and saddle of rabbit in parma ham) and Soup L’Oignon. An evening ‘menu fixe’ offers three courses for £31.
The Sandbach restaurant is the third in the Phanthong group, following on from Altrincham and Wilmslow. There’s a comprehensive Thai a la carte menu, and Sunday buffet for those wanting a change from roast dinner. The room is a study in sophisticated understatement, and the locals have welcomed Phanthong in to Sandbach’s restaurant scene.
