Fresh cookery evident and good flavours, seasoning and cooking accuracy shown in the dishes”

Pesto Dibbinsdale General Manager, Catherine Mealor said: “We’re delighted that the hard work of the team in creating this stunning restaurant and inn that offers great food has paid off with this recognition by the AA.”

A Dancer’s Dream at The Davenport Arms

If you’ve visited Pesto at The Davenport Arms, in Macclesfield, recently, you might have noticed that one of the waitresses has an extra spring in her step. That’s because Helena Lomas, aged 18 from Buglawton, is a trained dancer who is working at the restaurant to fund her dreams of a life of performing in London West End Musicals.Helena Outside The Davenport Arms

Helena has been dancing since the tender age of three, and she was often to be found practising pirouettes in her bedroom. She later went on to train in ballet, tap, jazz and modern dance.

She is taking a gap year and working at Pesto Restaurants to help fund her dream and the cost of living in London when she is taking part in auditions.

Helena has been part of Youth Dance England where she travelled to Royal Ballet School and the Royal Opera House. She has been part of the BBC Proms with the ‘Halle Choir’ in 2015 and is soon to be in Cats at the Regent Theatre in Hanley.

Helena said: ‘I love working at The Davenport Arms and it’s helping me to get closer to my ultimate dream to dance. I’ve always wanted to be a dancer, and my family has got used to seeing me, and my moves around the house. I’m taking a gap year to earn enough to fund the cost of auditions, accommodation in London can be very expensive, and so this is a great way for me to make sure I can afford to be in the running.’
For bookings please call 01260 224269. Pesto at The Davenport Arms, Congleton Road, Macclesfield SK11 9HF

Autumn brings a menu makeover – available NOW!

We’re head-long into autumn now, and that means it’s time for a menu make-over! We can’t wait to share our fantastic new dishes with you. To whet your appetite here’s an idea of what could be hitting your plate!

Bruschetta Caprese

Fans of our meatball dish will be over the moon, as we’ve added Bruschetta alle Polpettine, is a smaller version of our classic dish on toasted ciabatta.
Or if you go mad for mozzarella, you’ll love our Bruschetta Caprese (pictured left) with buffalo mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, finished with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and fresh basil.

Pizzette con gorgonzola e pere

We’ve updated our pizza dishes and proudly introduce our Pizzette con gorgonzola e pere, a gorgeous mozzarella and gorgonzola pizza with pear and rocket.

For those looking for something a little lighter, why not try our new Insalata Panzanella. This little beauty is our version of the 16th-century Tuscan salad, with tomatoes, ciabatta bread, red onion, basil leaves, green olives, roasted peppers and Gran Moravia shavings.

And it’s great news for our seafood fans, who will be in their element with two new dishes, Spiedini di gamberoni alla griglia, which is a skewer of king prawns, peppers and red onion, chargrilled and dressed with a mouthwatering lemon butter.

Spiedini di gamberoni alla griglia

Also the power of the people has won us over and we are very proud to be reintroducing (by seriously popular demand) a huge favourite. Farfalle al salmone affumicato e asparagi. This sumptuous favourite features farfalle pasta tossed with smoked salmon, asparagus, garlic, white wine and double cream. You’re welcome.
