Bowes Gate Road, BUNBURY, CW6 9PH
A classic English village pub with open fires, lots of old oak, full-height bookcases and a pretty garden with views to two castles and the neighbouring parish church. Built as a farmhouse in the mid-18th century and licensed since the late 1800s, it once functioned simultaneously as a farm, an abattoir and a pub; the abattoir building was demolished by a German bomber crew on their way home from 'rearranging' the Liverpool docks. The hostelry is named after local landowners, the Earls of Dysart, whose coat of arms is above the door. An ever-changing line-up of ales is served in the central bar, around which are several airy rooms perfect for drinking and eating. Light bites include seared haloumi and red pepper salad; starters may list smoked salmon with beetroot and fennel salad; and main courses range from roast loin of pork with stuffing and apple sauce, to spicy Vietnamese king prawn and rice noodle salad. Have some hot waffles or bread and butter pudding for your afters.
