50 Market Street, Disley, Stockport SK12 2D2. 01663 08077
A place where you are made very welcome by the owners, Stuart and Lorraine. This Mediterranean tapas restaurant is great for relaxing and celebrating. The food is very reasonably priced and well-presented, demonstrating a real balance of flavours. The decor and lighting make the overall experience special. But do book, as this venue is very popular.

A lovely, modern restaurant which has a great seasonal menu featuring a mixture of English and French styles and a fantastic wine selection. This is a very skilled kitchen team who take a lot of pride in their presentation. There is also a new bar area offering a light bite plate menu.

I was introduced to this Cheshire gastropub, run by Aiden and Sarah, by a colleague.
They offer a wide range of dishes and the attention to detail is very apparent. Service is second to none and nothing is missed. You can eat on the terrace in summer, enjoying rustic salads or maybe just a bar snack. Aiden is planning his second Cheshire venue with the reopening of the White House in Prestbury.
