absolutely amazing food!
Delicious food and very attentive staff with great knowledge of the food and drink menu! Can’t wait to go back!!
This was our irst visit here and We will definitely be back. Can’t believe we haven’t been before. We were looking into venues for a works Christmas party and I’d love to receive more info when you have it available. We spoke to three or four members of staff on our visit and they were all really nice, welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks to all for a very pleasant visit.
Everything was top notch! from the service to the food and drink.
we love eating at the winstanley house as the food tastes delicious and drinks. however I will say that the afternoon tea is very expensive for what it is . we didn't even drink tea. so paid the extra 7£ for a champagne . so that nearly came to 60£ total . and I do feel that's a very expensive lunch. we had a few more cocktails too . as we do enjoy the winstanley house . and looking forward to going back for a dinner soon
Exxcelent service and the waitress couldn’t do enough . Thankyou
I recently ate here fir the first time and was so impressed with everything I booked my daughters 18th birthday in the private dining area. It was perfect Josh was outstanding he helped me with the booking and the set menu and was there on the night too. Everything was so simple from the booking system to the actual night, they printed out place cards which were great and made it easier for us and the staff when serving food. I can’t oraise the staff the service the food the setting the building enough it was just fantastic. Massive shout out to Trudy as well who was amazing and very attentive all night
Very enjoyable relaxing not rushed perfect night definitely will be coming back
It was my sister birthday and it was the best food I have ever tested in a long time the service was amazing really friendly staff went above and beyond will definitely be coming back thanks

Great food and service
Enjoyed our visit the staff could not have been more attentive They were very polite and informative
Amazing afternoon tea ! Well done Winstanley can't wait to find out more about the relaunch !
We loved the food, really good quality ingredients and great taste. The only thing that let you down was the fact you had not updated your new menu with vegan choices (one of our party was vegan and I had notified you at the time of booking) However the waitress who took our order, very quickly sorted things with the kitchen and a menu supplied. I could not fault the service or the friendliness of the staff. Overall we all left very happy. Thank you
Much better than our experience on Sunday 3rd February.
We came for Sunday dinner especially booked for my sons 17th birthday first we were Put at a table for 4 when there was 6 of us the people either end couldn’t put there legs under the table , staff were good they did move us but after waiting 30 mins ( our choice) but then we were told there was no lamb left , so they offered to do a chicken breast which we thought ok that’s good of them but then we were told there was no pigs in blankets left and no stuffing left ! Gutted we left with out anything and I was so embarrassed as I had said it was so nice as I’ve been 3 times before and I have spent a lot of money there including I have bought vouchers for afternoon tea for Christmas presents, my sons birthday was spoilt , you should be able have what you offer but that wasn’t the case .
We booked for my son's 15th birthday. We were put in a side room, where the tables that were put together were uneven and uncomfortable for some of our party because of the table legs. We ordered drinks and one of them came and was incorrect. Myself and my son and daughter and the sharing meat at £18 each and when it arrived we had to wait 5 minutes before we got any plates! We also weren't offered any condiments, ie mint sauce, apple sauce, and the salt cellars were enpty. The other parties in the room who were served after us were offered all of these. Then we ordered desserts and 5 minutes later were told by the waiter that he'd given us the wrong menu so we couldn't have what we ordered!! Basically ruined my son's birthday experience. We slso weren't happy that other parties and the waiting team kept walking behind us. There was no need and made us feel uncomfortable.
Food was excellent. Was a bit disappointed by the sides. We ordered some seasonal veg as I was advised there was none on my main but when the main arrived there was veg so we didn't need to order the extra. We were also advised the chips would be suitable for 1 and not too big so ordered 1 each but when the chips arrived realised we didn't need to order each.
Lovely first visit looking forward to going again
We experienced a lovely & surprising environment, never having visited before. The lovely young lady who served us was welcoming, great and informative. Many thanks. I hope we will be able to return. Rachel
Lovely venue - welcoming staff. Very quiet morning we were one of only two couples in the restaurant that day. Food was lovely and gtreat price - will return
Great place, great food. Awful service! Waited an extra hour for the table, food orders came out wrong. Not one person asked if everything was ok etc ...When your paying more then average prices you expect better then avarage service. Such a shame
