About the Pub

Popular town pub, whose sign is the old Crewe heraldic arms, with 10 ever-changing real ales plus a limited selection of Belgian beers on tap and in bottles. Real cider now features up to two hand drawn dispensers. Open plan upstairs with three distinct drinking areas on two levels. Large room downstairs which leads to a sheltered beer garden. Every real ale served at this establishment pump clips are affixed to the ceiling throughout the pub. A local pub with well over 100 years of history, but was bought in 1998 by Alan Hinde, a local man who had previously run the Albion on Mill Street as well as brewing at the Rising Sun, now closed,in Shraleybrook. Re-opened as the Borough Arms in 1999. John has since extensively refurbished the pub and beer garden. A visit would definitely suit railway enthusiasts, as the West Coast Mainline runs within 6ft of the beer garden, and is a 10 min walk to the Crewe Heritage Centre, where the Crewe Rail Ale festival is held every September. Refurbished again during Covid lockdown, the little brewery has gone and there is now new luxury seating instead. Pub is current (2022) South Cheshire Pub of the Year and one of the 50 years of CAMRA Golden award winners.
