Saracens Head, Lymm

The food here is shocking. It is �5 for a starter, main or dessert. We just had a main course each, I had fish and chips. The chips weren't cooked properly, the fish was tasteless and the mushy peas tasted powdery. My son had fish fingers that looked like they had been under a 100 watt bulb for a few hours, some very perculiar looking mash that was very dry and illuminous green peas that for some reason were solid when cut in half - like they were made of solid plastic. He is 16 months old and normally eats anything but even he wouldn't touch his food. My wife had a burger and chips and the burger looked very odd. We didn't finish our food and it was starting to make me feel sick. The interior is quite tatty and the outdoor play area is OK for kids but could do with tidying up. My wife complained about the food and the manager robustly defended the quality of the food but we just weren't convinced and on spekaing to some people outside they thought the same about the low quality. We won't be recommending it or going back.

The Village, Altrincham

Now shut - re-opened as Opulence. Apparently "the only bar outside London to offer Cristal and Krug by the glass". Seemed a bit cramped and cheesy to me.

The Victoria, Altrincham

Was funny to go in after it just opened to find a couple of scallies in there complete with baseball cap and tracksuits! I don't think they realised that it is only the Victoria in name now, which is odd as it will have to try to remove that old reputation.

It's aiming to be more of an upmarket-ish restaurant I think although there is a bar seating area still to the right as you go in. The decor is nice and the food is good, can't remember the prices but I remember the menu was a bit limited in terms of the basic english dishes. Very good friendly service. Unfortunately I am a smoker so won't be going back as it has a *no smoking* policy.

Recommended for non smokers. The tables outside look a bit Tesco Value.
