We recommend starting with the trio of mackerel, with pan-fried, smoked and brined mackerel, fennel, cucumber, radish and horseradish yoghurt along or the curried cauliflower with roasted and creamed cauliflower, onion bhaji, apple and coriander. For the main, perhaps opt for a courgette spaghetti packed with asparagus, peas, puffed buckwheat and truffle, or a succulent rib-eye with hand cut chips, tomato and mushrooms cooked to perfection.

Amazing Sunday lunch, roast beef and all the trimmings. Plus scrumptious creme brulee with rhubarb , chocolate brownie and treacle tart. Not to mention fantadtic and helpful staff.
Excellent food, the pigs cheeks were amazing! Pleasant friendly staff who couldn't do enough to help and very reasonably priced £65 for two. We will be back
Fabulous roast dinner with excellent service. The new conservatory makes a wonderful dinning experience. The shin of beef and the lamb was absolutely mouth watering
Very good quality food , an interesting and varied menu , great service and good value for money. What a beautiful place to dine or go for a sociable drink
We had a fabulous time at The Legh Arms in January 2018. The staff were very attentive and very patient with us with our requests. We have been visiting the Legh Arms every January for the last four years now and we never get bored. It's our favourite place to eat and have a drink.
My wife and I really enjoyed our meal. The food was simple and honest, and the service friendly and reliable. The Legh Arms should stick to being a solid local pub and drop things like the amuse-bouche!
Early days on the new menu and there are some nice touches, such as a complimentary amuse bouche to start. The staff are very nice, maybe need some consistency in attention, we had already ordered our meals before we heard another table being offered the specials for the day, which had not been offered to us. Overall, good food with a good choice and the décor is a vast improvement and very pleasant.
First visit - thoroughly enjoyed it! Food and service outstanding, would certainly recommend it - we'll definitely be going back. Nothing was to much trouble. One member of the party asked for an alternative veg as part of their dish and it came with no hesitation.
As usual the Sunday lunch was excellent and good value. Service attentive but not obtrusive. We have been a few times, not only for Sunday Lunch, since it became under new management and have been happy every time.x
Excellent choice of venue with top quality food in a lovely setting and great service. Myself and my wife and our son (age 10) left very happy. He said his chocolate brownie pudding was “the best”.
