About the Pub

A traditional country pub and grade ll listed building adjoining a traditional Cheshire farm. The main three storey building dates from the late C17 and early C18 with some C19 additions. The current tenants took over in October 2006 and have since overseen a sympathetic redecoration of some of the internal rooms, retaining the character of the interior which is listed on CAMRA’s National Inventory.

As you enter the pub from the cobbled forecourt and lift the latch to the main door you know you are not entering a typical pub. The bar area to the right, despite some controversial modifications in the 1970s, has a welcoming feel. The corridor type servery leads through to a small snug area, with open fire in cold weather, and a couple of steps lead up to a cosy back room with tables and chairs and a further log fire. The main pub corridor and the tap room to the left have a black and red quarry tiled floor whilst the tap room has simple wooden settles and long tables. A further room off the corridor, with its kitchen range, reminds of the days when the Harrington Arms was primarily a working farm. Outside is a pleasant drinking area great for summer days.

As with all Robinsons houses, beers are sourced from their own brewery, including Old Tom in bottles. The lunchtime and evening menus are wide ranging and reasonably priced. The pub is popular with walkers and visitors to nearby Gawsworth Hall, and there are open folk sessions on Friday nights. Bus route 38 passes close by, but the road between bus stop and pub is unlit and a torch is advisable at night!
