Find this good restaurant in the comfortable Alderley Edge Hotel, originally built for one of the original cotton magnates. Their smart restaurant is one of the best in the area.
An autumn snapshot brought 'Truffled Chicken Liver Parfait with Muscat Jelly & Toasted Artisan Bread'; 'Cappuccino of Roasted Pumpkin, Parmesan Cream & Salted Pumpkin Seeds'; 'Warm Salad of Roasted Partridge with Pear, Honey & Walnut' and 'Roast Hand-Dived Scallops with Slow-Cooked Cod, Smoked & Charred Leeks & Iberico Ham' amongst the starters.
Perhaps 'Slow-Poached Shoulder of Suckling Pig with Braided Cheek & Grilled Cabbage'; 'Honey-Baked Gressingham Duck with Mulled Blackberries & Orange'; 'Cheshire Lamb Two-Ways - loin with parsley & garlic and braised shoulder - with Roasted Beetroot & Champ Potato' and 'Roasted Monkfish with Smoked Eel, Roasted Salsify, Verjus & Saffron' listed on the mains menu.
Puds might be hard to resist, with possibly 'Victoria Plum & Parkin with Black Treacle Ice Cream'; 'Tonka Bean Pannacotta with English Cox Apples & Biscuit Crumbs' and 'Lemon Tart with Cluizel Elianza Sorbet & Thyme Scent Sauce' there to tempt you.
There's also a brasserie, offering a less ambitious menu - including dishes such as 'Fish & Chips'; Burgers, Steaks etc.
Service is both friendly & professional.
