The Grosvenor Arms

Chester Road, ALDFORD, Chester, CH3 6HJ

With its red brick and black and white timbering, this higgledy-piggledy Brunning & Price pub was designed by Victorian architect John Douglas, who designed around 500 buildings, many of them in Cheshire. The spacious, open-plan interior includes an airy conservatory and a panelled, book-filled library. The range of real ales from small breweries, such as Phoenix and Weetwood, changes frequently, much to the delight of beer-drinking locals. Venison, pancetta and shallot meatballs in juniper sauce makes an interesting opener to French seafood stew; chicken, ham hock and leek pie; pink-roasted duck breast; and Mexican vegetarian burger. To see Black Forest trifle - not gāteau, note! - on the menu might nevertheless stir the memories of the more mature. A terrace leads into a small, pleasant garden, and on out to the village green.
