Fantastic food and a large comfortable room. Only downside wasn’t really the fault of hotel as the current guidelines put paid to any atmosphere in the bar area before and after meal.

Sunday lunch was nowhere near the same standard as our last 2 visits, no sliced roast beef option despite asking the waitress. Still good quality food, but not the 'wow' factor or previous Sunday lunches.

The welcome was warm, the dining area set out well and safety guidelines followed. The staff were attentive and very friendly. The mains were a little slow coming from the kitchen but were delicious when they arrived. The desserts were excellent and arrived quickly. Our first visit and will be returning for steak night!

The staff were as welcoming as ever & the establishment plus restaurant are Covid19 aware and ready which made myself and family feel safe. The food was as enjoyable as ever and I am sure they will aim to keep its as tasty as ever with little changes along the way.

Would rather have a main course and accompanying vegetables as one price and not separately priced add ons.

It's very well done for social distancing, as well as being well looked after by the staff. We wouldn't have stayed if it wasn't safe. Well done

Very family friendly as ever. This is our second trip to Winstanley, the food was nice. Only small grumble was our nice waiter kept coming up and asking us if we'd finished our starters, I'm guessing this was because of the two hour slot. With two children under 5 it's never going to be a problem finishing within two hours !

Hi Steak was good, peppercorn sauce lovely. Very well cooked, starters were not so great there wasn’t much cheese in the fritters, ate them as was hungry, Fries were very basic didn’t taste any different to those not cooked in beef dripping. Seasonal veg was nice. Mushrooms were not what we expected as they were very large chunks of mushroom not really a side to steak and fries! and couldn’t taste the garlic. chocolate cheesecake and sticky toffeee pudding were very very sweet possibly too much. We have always wanted to come to Dine with you but probably wouldn’t rush to come back. Wine wasn’t great. Service was good. Friendly staff. This isn’t a complaint at all, just feedback and personal to us, I’m sure other people enjoy their experience but it just wasn’t for us I’m afraid. Food was not outstanding at all. For £100 for three people don’t really feel it was that good value. Sorry! Don’t mean to be rude just an honest review Good luck though I hope you get through the bad times!
