Wizard (The)

Macclesfield Road, Nether Alderley, Cheshire, SK10 4UB
Find this 16th century gastro pub, belonging to a small group run by Martin Ainscough, on National Trust land close to Alderley Edge. It's named after a children's book, The Wizard of Alderley Edge.

Expect real ales, flagstone floors, bare wooden tables & beamed ceilings. The quality of their food is the raison d'être for a visit for many, and ranges from freshly-cut sandwiches and light bar meals, to main events.

Simon Radley heads a kitchen team that has built up an excellent local sourcing network over many years.

Starters such as 'Caesar Salad'; 'Chicken Liver Parfait with Spiced Pear Chutney'; 'Grilled Bury Black Pudding with Sweet Potato Mash, Poached Egg & Butter Sauce' and 'Salmon Rillette with Tempura Smoked Salmon & Butter Sauce' set the style.

Perhaps to be followed by 'Roast Cannon of Lamb with Bubble & Squeak and Rosemary Jus'; 'Pan-Seared Fillet of Salmon on a Rocket, Parmesan & Balsamic Salad'; 'Pan-Fried Gnocchi with Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables with Pesto'; 'Thai Green Chicken Salad' and 'Steak & Ale Pie' among the listed mains.

Finish with 'Sticky Toffee Pudding'; 'Crème Brulée'; 'Dark Chocolate Marquise with Homemade Shortbread Biscuits & Chantilly Cream' and the like.
