Our Unique Style
Pecks Restaurant was established in 1984 and still offers it's famous "Dinner at 8" concept, where all diners start a theatre of food at 8pm, and a sample dish of each option on the menu is presented by waiting staff and described, so that diners need never make the wrong selection. The menu is 5 courses on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 7 courses Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Unusually, and despite an extensive wine list, Pecks still invites diners to bring their own wine, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening, with no corkage charge.
Pecks are dedicated to achieving the very best, and never stop pushing the standards even higher. All our dishes are freshly prepared by a kitchen brigade led by Head Chef Les Wassall – a Pecks veteran of over 10 years – highly skilled in complimenting classic British cooking with innovative and assured modern touches.
In recent years, Pecks has opened at lunchtime, offering an impressive a la carte menu, and a daily plat du jour menu representing outstanding value for money - and more recently for afternoon tea.
A firm favourite for discerning diners from far and wide, Pecks celebrates over 25 successful years with a fresh lease of life and numerous coverted awards.
The restaurant is located close to historic Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire and below the famous landmark Mow Cop Castle, just over the Staffordshire border. Recently acquired by its most enthusiastic customers, local businessman Andrew Pear and his wife Sue - who liked the food so much they bought the restaurant.
They are determined to continue in the vein that has made Pecks the venue of choice for generations of diners celebrating special occasions and the stylish makeover inspired by Sue provides an elegant backdrop to acclaimed standards of cuisine and service.
