About the Pub

This is a traditional 18th century roadside pub (though some parts are considerably older). Sited on a bend on a country road, it presents an inviting aspect to passing motorists. It has numerous cosy drinking areas separated by arches and wooden panelling. The low ceilings, beams and wooden settles add to the intimate atmosphere. The walls are adorned with lots of small prints depicting birds, flowers, fishing and hunting and, in the restaurant area, a map of Olde Cheshire. There are no less than five open fires scattered throughout the building! Football is sometimes watched unobtrusively on a television in the rear room. Dominoes and cribbage are played. You can recline on sunlit bench seating at the front. Food is available all day on Sundays. Wheelchair friendly, although there are no special facilities. All this and it sells one of the cheapest and best beers around!
