Just love a visit to fosters. The halloumi is great for my husband - wish they would serve it at the alderley edge branch. Fab fish & chips every time.

Fish wonderful. Chips awful. Really dry I know people will say that is good but as we don't eat chips very often we exspect chippy chips but these are more like oven chips. Good service just shame about the chips
