The Bulls Head

Mill Lane, MOBBERLEY, WA16 7HX

Sister pub to the Cholmondley Arms near Malpas, this little gem thrives as both a village local and as a destination pub. One attraction is the real ales from Cheshire microbreweries all within a radius of 30-35 miles - Dunham Massey, Merlin, Mobberley, Redwillow, Storm, Tatton and Wincle - but you'll need to spread your visits to make acquaintance with them all. Yet another, Weetwood, brews Mobberley Wobbly (aka Mobb Wobb) exclusively for the pub; it's a pint of this that comes with the 'legendary' handcrafted steak and ale pie with chips and 'not so mushy' peas. Smart, traditionally-styled rooms provide a comfortable and convivial setting for wholesome home-cooked food, including delicious Sunday roasts; slow-cooked ox casserole in rich caramelised port gravy with celery, carrot, onion and celeriac; local organic pork sausages with creamy mash, red cabbage and shallot gravy; pan-fried Old Winchester cheese-breadcrumbed chicken with fresh tomato, basil sauce and salad; and smoked fish pie with haddock, salmon, trout, and carrot and celeriac mash. One of the home-made puddings is Irish whiskey sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream. Wheat-free and gluten-free dishes are also available. The pub hosts two car clubs: The 3p, which stands for 'Pub, Porsche and Pint', and for which you have to own, borrow or regularly hire said German vehicle; and The Goodfellows, for which you must own anything but a Porsche. (Membership isn't quite that simple - see the pub website for details.) There's a garden and a June beer festival. Finally, you may be interested to know that, just after the First World War, the Bulls Head was run by the parents of a young man who later established the Umbro sportswear chain - his stock room was a cupboard in the pub.
