“Being positioned in rural Cheshire means it’s not difficult for us to source exceptional produce from some of the country’s best growers as well as various smallholdings just a stone’s throw away. It’s important to us to buy locally wherever possible to support responsible local businesses, to reduce our impact on the environment, and to ensure we serve the freshest food possible. We work very hard to keep our team happy and to treat them well. When our people find their work rewarding and satisfying it creates a happy and welcoming atmosphere for all our visitors.”

We have rarely encountered a place with such a wholehearted commitment to staff training and welfare. They do their best to employ and train as many local people in their hotel as possible. Age is not an issue. They believe certain people have hospitality in their DNA and that it is their job to find it and nurture it.
