Xmas dinner is on in the kitchen and Jack is banished. Then he is invited in for his turkey. Between picture two and picture four there was only 9 seconds, I kid you not. Merry Xmas Jack.

And now the baking is complete. 6hrs later and Lucie is the proud owner of 500+ Czech biscuits, all ready for Christmas and looking for good homes. Mind you, I'm guessing I'll have over 50 polished off before bedtime....

I usually hold off diving into a review based on one visit. We've now been five times since early April. We went there again today, taking some friends for lunch. Quiet for a Sunday, but it is the Bank Holiday weekend. I have some regular haunts in Cheshire where the food is good and we can take the dog but honestly, this place is a cut above. The food is delicious, well presented with generous helpings. I would say the menu is slightly higher in price than average but then the quality of the ingredients and the service make it money well spent. What a pleasure to go out for a meal where you are not expected to be constantly up and down to the bar to order food or more drinks. The staff have without exception been excellent, always attentive but not intrusive. The seating is comfortable and the tables clean and tidy. There looks to be an excellent outside seating area at the back, but unfortunately the weather so far this year has meant each trip we've been inside. Overall I give this place top marks. My favourite eat-out pub of the moment, and the dog is welcome too, which is a bonus.

Pitched up on spec, with the dog who was most welcome. Nicely laid out. Excellent roast pork and ceasar salad as main courses with fabulous desserts. Reasonable prices for a memorable meal. Staff friendly and efficient. Certainly on the list for a second visit.

easily accesible on main route into Manchester from the south. Prices usually very competitive as the cheap Asda station is only one mile further down the road. Shop well stocked and staff friendly.

Easy access, lots of parking and the free gym access is a winner. This is a full gym suite and very large pool with sauna and steam. Can get busy at weekends with functions. I've stayed over 30 nights in the past 4 months. Same staff there throughout, which is a good sign. Very few negative issues to report. Ocassional minor gripes were put right by the staff promptly. All you can eat buffet breakfast is plentiful and the bar is a good bet for an evening meal. Although drinks are pricey the bar food menu is good value and a better bet than the dining room. Old comment about wi-fi must be outdated as I've always had high speed both up and down in the room. Overall, can't really fault the place.

Dog friendly pub with Landlords on draft t'boot!. Great place to relax after a walk around Durham Masses Park. Super roaring fireplace in the winter months.
