Village local steeped in history

Open all year

Painstakingly restored, this charming inn has many original features, including a stone tablet in the bar dated 1722 and inscribed 'Nil nimium cupito' (‘I desire nothing to excess’). Also visible is a verse above a door written by local Arley Hall estate-owner, Rowland Egerton-Warburton, who had the inn remodelled in 1875. Regular real ales are Lees Bitter from Manchester and the pub’s own Great Budworth Best Bitter. Start your meal with deep-fried Cheshire brie with cranberry and claret compote, or oak-smoked Scottish salmon; then move on to steak, ale and mushroom short-crust pie; chicken stuffed with black pudding, wrapped in bacon and coated in a white wine sauce; or cheddar and leek Glamorgan sausages. Aberdeen Angus steaks are a speciality.
