A large, modern hotel at the edge of town, Cottons' menu is an appealing brasserie-style package. Start with oak-smoked Severn and Wye salmon, served with beetroot and horseradish crème fraîche, or share a 'taste of Cheshire' plate of cured meats and seasonal salads. Chargrilled steaks (aged for 28 days) come with confit tomato and fries, and sandwiches are up for grabs during the day. Among main courses, fish curry with a spicy coconut cream sauce arrives with basmati rice and naan bread, and Wainwright ale-battered haddock is served with thick-cut chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. Comforting desserts include warm treacle tart with Pedro Ximénez and clotted cream.
