After searching for places to eat we were lucky enough to get in at the Draycott Arms. Not much to look at from the outside, but the standard of food was top draw. Fantastic value for money, good portion sizes and very, very well cooked....Menu is pretty simple, but really good. Would highly recommend.More

Unplanned stop for dinner on the way home from Alton Towers. We had the Saltimbocca fish which was really good. Great efficient service. Very clean & well presented.

Recommended by Springfields Caravan Park and we were not disappointed! Amazing freshly cooked food! Such friendly service, in a beautiful restaurant and all at a really reasonable price. There is a lovely little garden too if you fancy a drink beforehand outside. We will definitely...return when we stay here again.More

What can I say .......just a great pub with really nice hosts. Great food using local produce. Been twice already for food since the lifting of the recent restrictions and feel totally at home. The Draycott Arms is the ultimate example of a good local...pub / restaurant.More

A warm welcome and excellent food awaits you at The Draycott Arms on the Cheadle Road. The hosts could not be more accommodating. We had Sunday lunch and the quality of the food was excellent. Lovely selection of well cooked vegetables with all the trimmings....They also serve the most amazing homemade puddings so save some room. All served in a nice contemporary and cosy interior. Well impressed and highly recommendedMore

Dont be misled by the title, the DA is anything but normal. Our only thought to have our first meal out post lockdown, was to go back to the Draycott Arms. Brayn and Zara have worked hard in the downtime to make sure the place...is still top class and then some. Felt safe and comfortable, food exemplary as per usual and the hosts both as always welcoming and friendly.More

Brayn and Zara always make you feel welcome here so be glad if you stumble upon this place! The food and drink here are always consistently fantastic, especially the takeaway pies in the current times 🙄 so don’t miss out!

Dinner on Saturday night as a couple is one of the few options still open to us to bring a sense of some normality. It is therefore important that it is a good experience. The food at the Draycott Arms is the star of the...show but the service is friendly, relaxed but efficient and definitely adds to the experience. The menu is small but of exceptional quality and includes Fish and chips, burger and homemade pies for the less adventurous diner. My partner had the Chicken and leek pie with triple cooked chips and loved it. I had a Cod loin wrapped in Parma ham on a Cassoulet of beans and nuts. The fish was perfect and a lovely autumnal dish. Home made puddings are the cherry on the cake with a oozing chocolate fondant and a Cognac rice pudding. We will definitely be going back and will take friends once all this madness is over.More
