Square Meal Review of The Church Green ?

Set up by one-time Michelin-starred chef Aiden Byrne and his wife, this renovated hostelry next door to Lymm church now runs as a self-styled ‘British grill’ rather than a gastropub, with a suitably relaxed, sophisticated look – think chunky wooden tables, neutral colours and high-backed leather chairs. Chops, steaks and burgers cooked over coconut-husk charcoal take centre stage, but Byrne’s head chef also leavens his menus with nostalgia and tricksy touches – from honey-glazed gammon and fish pie with a poached egg to pea mousse with Yellison goats’ cheese, lemon emulsion and sourdough or passion-fruit Arctic roll with mango and vanilla salad. Kids have their own menus, there’s breakfast at the weekend and mighty Sunday roasts are carved at the table. Byrne recently signalled his return to the big time with the high-profile launch of Manchester House in the ‘rainy city’.

Aiden Byrne

Aiden Byrne’s CV bristles with big names from the fine-dining circuit: Tom Aikens, The Grill at the Dorchester, Pied à Terre, Adlards and Danesfield House, to cite but a few. Since 2009, he’s been looking after The Church Green (his pub/grill at Lymm) and Manchester House, an ambitious city-centre restaurant in partnership with Living Ventures. Byrne still holds the record for the youngest British chef to win a Michelin star (aged just 22).
