Style of venue

The Wizard is a quite magical gastro-pub on the edge of National Trust land in Nether Alderley. Theres plenty of old world charm and comforting food on offer. However, drinkers who arent dining are made welcome too.

On the menu

Something for everyone, whether its just a pint from the local brewery or a full a la carte meal. Choose from a wide selection of modern British/European dishes. The Wizard has been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand annually since 2001 and recommended in the 'Good Food Guide'. Theres always regional produce: vegetables and dairy from Cheshire; poultry and game from Goosnargh and fish from Fleetwood. My favourites are goats cheese and fresh cranberry roulade to start, followed by grilled chicken breast on garlic mash. Sticky toffee pudding is the perfect finale. Renowned for its Sunday lunch.


The Wizard is still recognisable as an old characterful coaching house: wooden tables, low beamed ceilings, stone floors and nooks and crannies. Mind your head!


Relaxed and inviting.


Good, traditional and efficient service even on a very busy Saturday night.


Around 78 for a three-course dinner for two with a modestly-priced bottle of wine and coffees.

Suitability for entertainment

Perfect for a meal with friends who appreciate decent food.
