Blog- Lunch in Northwich

I am no expert, but I know what I like, and that is some good food at affordable prices. Over my time working at Mosshaselhurst Solicitors, I have scoured almost every establishment this great town has to offer in terms of confectionary. Each restaurant brings its own flavour, but ‘Temple Bar’ Northwich must be one of my favourites.

Firstly, I will start with the interior, the design is fantastic with photographs of illustrious stars both past and present. Perhaps I am slightly biased, as the place is littered with mementos of some of my personal heroes (such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and Muhammad Ali) but I find the rustic layout hugely endearing and authentic. However, despite its somewhat niche feel the restaurant avoids becoming alienating and maintains a welcoming atmosphere.

This eloquently brings me on to my next point, the excellent service from staff. To match the charming a décor each member of staff carries their own magnetism that is infectious and leaves you smiling. The owners especially never fail to welcome you as you walk through the door making you feel like part of the family. Despite being a somewhat new kid on the block (only being open for two years) Temple has established a definite character and this goes a long way in terms of its success. It is not the most economic of choices though, the food is on average 10-15% more expensive than its competitors and though a nice sentiment the free drink vouchers do not quite account for this. However, the extra expense is requisite to the fresh ingredients that are used from delicious local groceries.

The food is mouth-watering, dropping any pretence in favour for good old-fashioned soul food. A personal favourite of mine is the chicken burger that is perhaps emblematic of the strengths of temple, a simple classic done well.

In conclusion, Temple balances both a unique style with timeless sensibilities skilfully resulting in an enjoyable experience, even if it is on the pricey side!
