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 around the country changes all the time so it's no wonder the locals are fond of it. On the bistro-style menu, starters may feature potted mackerel and shrimp with horseradish butter, potato cakes and pickled cucumber, which might precede main courses of Red Leicester, potato and onion pie; or pan-fried duck breast with confit carrot, roasted beetroot, dauphinoise potato, redcurrant and balsamic jus. Leave room for glazed lime tart with passionfruit sauce, mascarpone and citrus fruit salad. A terrace leads into a small but pleasing garden, and on out to the village green.
