Now that's something that's a handy little addition to our table but we have the double whammy of mains sockets below the table too. Now if only either one of us had brought a charging cable :-)

We stopped in for lunch with friends on a Saturday afternoon after a visit to the airport visitors centre. On arrival, we were advised (I think by Richard, the manager) that the restaurant area was already fully booked but we could still order from any other table. There was also a 45 minute delay for food. We were in no hurry so grabbed a drink and headed outside to grab a table in the sun. We ordered quickly and settled in for the afternoon. Heading indoors to order a second round of drinks we were told that the kitchen was swamped but that the 45 minutes should still be a reasonable estimate. The reason was the higher than expected demand for dishes with the handmade chips, something they usually had a part prepared stock of. Well, you could almost at your watch by the estimate (OK, maybe it was 46 minutes) but it was well worth the wait. 4 clean plates and the Thai green chicken curry was amazing and those homemade chips were some of the best I have ever had. We have stopped by the Tatton Arms a couple of times when we have been in the area but I would say that it's well worth a dedicated visit.

We ate here last night while stating at the Travel Inn next door. The food was really good, great value and service was top notch.

Last night was our first visit to the Curry Cottage. A number of friends have recommended it and finally we made it in there. It's a pretty small restaurant but they can certainly pack in a lot of people. The staff were all friendly and gave us great service. The food was really good with clean plates all around and at a very reasonable price too. Well worth a visit if you're in a curry mood.

A great little cafe. Today was my second visit as I was early for an appointment. I grabbed a cuppa and some cheese on toast, both really simple and done well. Service was spot on again.

We ordered a meal for delivery last night for the misses and I. I used the online order page and all went smoothly. The confirmation email advised it would be between 50 and 70 minutes. Not too bad considering it's 6pm on a Saturday night. Right on the 1 hour mark our food arrived. It really hit the spot too.

My wife and I visited Abode recently, taking advantage of an offer. The location is great and the decor very industrial chique. The menu available was limited on our offer but even so we both found options we liked the look of. The portion size was very much what we expected from an exclusive restaurant but neither of us were wanting more one we had finished. All in all I would say it was worth a visit taking advantage of one of their offers as without these it's a little on the pricey side.
