Lovely meal and great service . I took my wife here for our monthly date night after a recommendation from my brother in law . We had a tapas style evening meal which was really good . A good selection of dishes were on offer and each one that we had was well presented, hot and very tasty . Very busy but service was very good. Server gave good advice on dishes and how many to order . Fantastic gin menu also !!! Would definitely return in the future !

Another great breakfast at Grade. The team were attentive but we never felt rushed. Quality of products to a high standard, fresh, beautifully cooked and piping hot. Portions and presentation great with a wide choice of breakfast products to choose from. Lovely team creating a relaxed, warming atmosphere, highly recommended.

We booked a table for six on a Friday lunchtime. The food was very good and my need for gluten free food was easily dealt with as anything on the menu could be adapted for my needs. That's great and still quite unusual in restaurants. We were made to feel very welcome and drinks came quickly. However, we did wait a long time for our food and conversation was difficult because it was very noisy. I'm afraid we added quite a lot of noisy talking ourselves. It was much quieter at other times when we chose to eat outside.

I went to Grade for the first time a few months ago and discovered gorgeous food, friendly staff, a relaxed atmosphere and great Gin...I have taken new friends each time I've been back and they all love it as much as me. A great addition to Poynton

Good atmosphere, appealing decor and freshly prepared food which was presented very attractively and thoughtfully. the food was very good quality and taste. Good range of food available for a 'cafe' including hot meals Would visit more regularly if lived near by but will visit again if in the area and would recommend.

Great food. I think everyone had arrived almost at the same time so food a little slow coming to the table and no promptly asked if we wanted a drink. Didn't get the table we had requested either as the other party had booked via the phone. So lesson learnt there! :(
