Another rural Cheshire pub with a focus on dining. Yet somehow this pub felt less pretentious than the Egerton Arms at Chelford or the Dog Inn at Peover Heath. The welcome seemed much more genuine. Ales were Flipside English Crown, Theakston Black Bull Bitter, Merlins Morgana & Courage Directors. Plenty of bar staff made service quick.

Dont recommend you visit this pub. Ordered a couple of beers and placed our order for food at 2.30pm which was taken and advised it would take 20 mins. No problem for us so we ordered a bottle of wine to enjoy and relax by the fire, thinking we had the afternoon to while away. Food arrived and looked very nice but only thing that spoilt it was a visit from one of the bar staff who informed us they close at 3pm and could we finish our meal ! I wouldn't have minded if it had been a sandwich and cup of tea but we had spend nearly £50 only to be told we had ten mins to eat the meal! They were eager enough to take the order but then told us to be out by 3pm. Very disappointed a bad start to the Easter Break.

Typical Cheshire food-led village pub; seemed to be hight standards and a decent if not great beer quality.

I dined at this pub today and was very disappointed. I checked when ordering if the chips were real ones and was told yes. When my meal came it was with awful frozen chips. The rest of the meal was very good, why not be truthful and give me the choice to go for a meal that did not include them. Very poor

The Davenport make the goup i was with extremely welcome, The food was prepared to a very high class and served with equal amount of proffesionalism. the staff we found were warm and friendly and pleasent to the children we had with us, which I'm sure you guys out there with kids will know what i mean, some places almost throw you out when you have kids, but the Devanport staff where Brill. Would I go again, without any doubt and I live 75 miles away!! matter of fact I'm going to make it a regular haunt.Allan

You can tell a good pub by the state of their toilets! It's true, believe us. Here's a very good example.The Davenport Arms at Marton, nr Macclesfield, is a Free House with good beers. Jenning's 'Crag Rack'went down a treat this weekend with the men in our party. Guiness,in my opinion,was served at just the right temp. and a good selection of wines complimented the good food they serve. A menu to delight most tastes & pockets.
Sarah, Ron & their team made us feel very welcome.
Caravanners of the rallier type will be excited to know that a good level(ish)well kept field on the grounds with penned livestock to entertain & delight you it is ideal to stay on.Elsan & Water convienently accessed but just a little word of warning it's probably best to use the elan out of pub opening times!

Lovely old farmhouse-style pub. Very well kept beer, including Robinsons' specials. Nice food (lunchtime only). Garden with aviary and kids' climbing things. Other part of garden just picnic tables. Beyond the garden fence/hedge nothing but sheep!

County pub. Loved by local farmers, but for anyone else with a car and wanting a quiet drink then this is quality.
The staff are friendly, and the atmosphere's relaxed. The beer's good- the serve John Smiths- a rarity in Macclesfield, and you don't get funny looks if you order a Coke.
Great for a quiet drink
