She is married to Simon and they have three teenage boys who, like mum and dad, love eating out, but they also like Clare’s many culinary creations

Rosanero Restaurant83 Mill StreetMacclesfield, SK11 6NN01625 511105An amazing Italian with the best anti-pasta platter. Salvatore and team are always friendly and enthusiastic. I love the open kitchen and I like sitting at the high table where we eat the biggest garlic bread ever and watch our food being prepared. The team always look like they enjoy being there. There’s a great atmosphere, but do book if you want to go on a Friday or Saturday.

Prestbury Village RestaurantNew Rd, Prestbury,Macclesfield,SK10 4HP01625 829640I love it here for lots of reasons. Simon and I had our first meal in Cheshire here, we took Harry there when he was seven days old, sleeping under the table in his baby seat. We have had two clients arrive for dinner to declare they were having an affair. We have had parties, romance, laughs and fun here – food is good quality – and then there is Chris. Well, what can you say? Not only do you get good food, you have your very own Johnny Depp thrown in.

Fina Bar and Grill11 MarketplaceMacclesfield SK10 1EB01625 618744Situated in the heart of Macclesfield, Fina is a family-run independent restaurant. Our boys love the pizza and pasta and the steaks are great. We have taken the rugby parents there for a quiet night out – which resulted in much laughter, dancing and it turned out to be a very lively night! There’s such a warm welcome and they’re very flexible, whatever the clientele.

Oxo Tower WharfBarge House Street,London, SE 19PHI spend a lot of time in London and I like to soak in the atmosphere, but every now and again you want to have a look at the city from above and take it all in. I love the Oxo’s terrace, high above the Thames with the amazing view: the food is almost secondary yet it’s excellent. We run our seminars here. I’ve had countless client meetings here and it never disappoints. It’s busy, but what do you expect when you’ve got the best view in town?

Sam’s Chop HouseChapel Walks, Back Pool FoldManchester M2 1HN0161 834 3210I struggle to decide whether I like Sam’s best or Mr Thomas’s on Cross Street so I pop between the two. I love the down to earth, Britishness of the food and the atmosphere at both is warm and inviting. You can start with a business lunch and then wonder why it’s gone dark outside. These are two great places: informal with a lively atmosphere. Fabulous.
