The House Restaurant

Tucked away in the idyllic setting of Altrincham’s Goose Green, The House has built its reputation on providing excellent food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Having maintained its authentic charm over the years, this hidden gem has become a popular haunt amongst locals.Since the restaurant first opened its doors in 2005, The House has continued to grow as a venue. It launched ‘The House Wine Bar’ next door in 2007, which introduced live music and entertainment to the green and most recently in December 2011, The House celebrated the opening of its new premises at ‘No. 13’, which has been completely remodelled into a spacious new dining area and state of the art kitchen.

I was with friends and we had a great meal followed with live music in the bar next door. Great atmosphere and the staff were brilliant. One of the best New Years bash in a while. We bought access bands for the green rooms next door so we could hop between the two. Brilliant service, food and staff. Well done.

Earle

Now under new ownership and management.. Earle Restaurant is located in Hale, Cheshire. Nestled in one of Britain’s most affluent areas, Earle delivers a memorable dining experience with beautiful surroundings.

Reviewed By UwdiKrugg - Manchester, United Kingdom

Nothing bad but nothing outstanding either.
Hale in general appears to presume it's in the West End with similar pretentious prices. To deal in this game you need to deliver a full package of great food, efficient service and a vibrant welcoming atmosphere.
Sadly Hale fails the test, Earle included.
The food was ok but not really memorable, the service was a bit arrogant and sarcastic and the atmosphere was dull.
Would I try the place again, probably not, same could be said for Hale in general I suppose.

Romper

On the edge of the old Manchester to Oxford Road stands The Romper, an old coaching inn welcoming patrons through our doors for over 400 years. With its charming, whitewashed, slate-tiled exterior and rampant lion roaring above the door, The Romper is a former coaching inn, tucked away on a old country lane, on the edge of Altrincham. The Romper is also just a stone’s throw from Manchester Airport, making it a perfect stopover, whether you’re exploring the local area or about to take to the skies. Offering easy access to Cheshire’s lovely villages and towns, including Hale, and Wilmslow, as well as some of the county’s prettiest countryside, Sat in the lovely beer garden on a sunny day, surrounded by leafy lanes, it’s hard to believe how close you are to one of Europe’s busiest airports. In winter, when the log fire crackles in the hearth, and pints of cask ale are being poured under the old-beamed ceilings, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in a rustic county pub

I am an early eater so 530pm Thursday was fairly quiet. Ordered Fish and Chips and a dessert at the counter and took seat in the lounge. The service was quick, presentation was good and the taste was lovely. Finished off with a salted caramel sundae excellent was stuffed as a pancake.

Lunch time meeting with two friends. The food, as usual, was good, but what a miserable waiter. We felt as though we shouldn't be there and were taking up valuable time. Will think twice before going back. Plenty of restaurants in Altrincham.

Little Italy

Reviewed By AliG7127 - Manchester, United Kingdom

I love this place. We decided, last minute, to take the kids for pizza. We popped in around 5pm and as always were greeted warmly, as we hadn't booked. The service was efficient, warm and friendly. The kids loved their pizzas, my other half had the duck linguine special - an enormous helping. I had the mushroom ravioli. My only minor complaint was my portion was small compared to the duck, and I wasn't really full. That said, Sam (the owner) always chats to his customers making sure they are happy. It's a great place and I love visiting with friends and family.

Reviewed By Charles807 - Altrincham, England, United Kingdom

We felt that it had droppeditsstandard 4Q17, but last week was back to where it was. A Sat night short notice booking got us a table with no waiting; adequate drinks service; great food for all. We had a great time, although the Expresso Martini isn't the besta roun by far. Pricing is slightly high for quality, but is kond of OK, so long as high consistency is maintained. Like all modern restaurants, its noisey when full

Axe & Cleaver

Reviewed By ESHW - Cheshire

Sadly I overrode my friends suggestion to go to another nearby establishment having eaten lunch here twice recently and had a good experience both times. The food was OK, but there was no steak on the menu, which my friend had wanted. We ordered drinks and then later some water, 1 glass was brought not a jug as we had expected. After our mains had been cleared away we had a long, long, long wait until eventually we caught the attention of a surly waitress to ask for some dessert menus. No one had come near to ask if wanted desserts or more drinks. The coffees were spilt in the saucers. When are people going to learn that a smile and a friendly attitude goes a long way to ensure a generous tip? The staff just seemed intent on setting out coffee cups and ignoring the diners. The area we were in near the entrance was cold and lacked atmosphere.

Went for lunch with work and had the corn cakes for starters and tofu massaman curry for main and it was delicious.
Friendly and attentive staff made the whole experience great.
We are fortunate enough to have other great Thai restaurants nearby which had meant that I have not been here before! Equally as good if not better!
Will be returning soon
