    I had lunch with a friend and we chose the Cheshire Table. I have eaten at The Cottons before and this is a favourite choice. The quality and choice of food is excellent and very good vale. The restaurant is also a quiet and safe place. Only criticism yesterday is that when we had just served ourselves we were asked if everything was all right, which it was and then not much later we were asked again. It seems to be quite common in restaurants these days and it really does interrupt conversation. Asking once in enough.

    A little disappointing. The Cheshire experience excellent starter super choice.
    Mains more disappointing particularly in portion size. Fish mixed grill with TWO prawns! Poor quality chips.
    Meringue on Cassis Pavlova "shop bought" very hard.
    Our booking was not on the system! No acknowledgement of our wedding anniversary; entered on booking form.

    We arrived to find the restaurant was not open and we were in the bar with only a bar menu. The ordered meals took over 45 minutes to appear. My smoked chicken salad consisted of lettuce and peas and a few small slices of poor quality chicken. A complaint about my salad to the manager brought the comment did I want somethings adding to it- which I refused and was told that was OK we would not be charged for it- and a reduction in the overall bill- I refused the offer of something else to eat bearing in mind the substantial wait for the meals and the lack of choices on the bar menu.
    There was nothing to recommend about this dreadful experience for myself and four members of my family hoping to enjoy an end of festive season meal together. The apology was half hearted at best and we will not be returning.

    We all thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch. There was a good choice on the menu and the Cheshire Plate starter provided a great selection of fresh meats, fish, cheese and salad. Our group had roast pork or roast beef, both of which came with all the trimmings and were good sized portions. Finished off with sticky toffee pudding and a coffee, we were all full! There was a live singer in the bar area, who had an amazing voice and provided fabulous background music which was clearly enjoyed by the other diners. I didn't catch her name, but the waitress was lovely and friendly and very attentive. My only negative point is that the wine was too pricey at £7.50 for a glass of house red. Had we realised how expensive it was, we'd of asked for a bottle. This however, does not change our overall experience and we would highly recommend visiting Cottons Hotel for Sunday lunch.
