Following a full refurbishment, the Dining Room restaurant is now the gastronomic centre of attention inside this rambling village inn that overlooks Manchester and the Cheshire plains. A seven-course tasting option showcases the kitchen's expertise, while the seasonal menu sets out heartily with pan-roasted cod with Puy lentils and Alsace bacon, followed by a main course displaying a keen eye for harmonious flavours and lively textural contrasts: lamb rump with goats' curd, raw courgette, braised and puréed shallots, onion ash and chilli oil. For pudding, a reworked old favourite sees rhubarb (poached and gel) matched with duck egg custard and a ginger biscuit.
