Belle EpoqueKing Street, Knutsford,Cheshire, WA16 6DTTel: 01565 632661Web: www.thebelleepoque.comI love how dynamic this restaurant is, whatever the season. The varied decor, excellent food and the unexpected Mediterranean garden make the whole experience. The emphasis on locally sourced ingredients, and the atmospheric surroundings make it an experience not easily equalled anywhere else. Their new cocktails are a must-try.

Gusto, Alderley Edge75 London Road, Alderley Edge, Cheshire, SK9 7DYTel: 01625 583993Web: www.gustorestaurants.uk.comAlways lively and always serving great food, Gusto is one of my favourite places to relax after a long day’s work. The lunch menu is good for midday meetings and the bar area is great for an after-work drink. I know a lot of the staff in there, and they are always really friendly.

The surroundings make the bar and the restaurant a truly five star experience, and whether it’s for a quick cocktail or a three course meal, I have never not been impressed. But you definitely have to dress to impress for this!

It has a modern European and Asian style menu and is always buzzing no matter what day of the week. The bar has a great drink selection including some amazing cocktails.

The Bull’s Head at MobberleyMill Lane, Mobberley, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 7HXTel: 01565 873395Web: www.thebullshead.co.ukBy far my favourite of country pubs, this part of the world is home and The Bull’s Head feels just that. It has such a friendly, cosy atmosphere which is perfect for any time of the day or week. There is nothing (anywhere else!) quite like a Bull’s Head Sunday lunch in front of the fire at this time of year with friends and family.
