Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin have certainly put this old inn back on the map, together with their other pub in the village, The Bulls Head. The Church Inn has a stylish country appeal, pleasing locals and destination diners alike. On the edge of the village and opposite the 12th-century St Wilfrid’s church, it is ideally situated between the bustling towns of Wilmslow and Knutsford and only eight miles from Manchester Airport. Surrounded by rolling Cheshire countryside, the attractive summer dining terrace and rear garden lead down to an old bowling green that boasts panoramic views across neighbouring fields. In the bar and boot room, a range of locally sourced ales includes Storm Brewery – Mallory’s Mobberley Best, named after Mobberley-born mountaineer George Mallory; Tatton Brewery’s Ale-Alujah may be making a guest appearance. A choice of intimate dining areas provide relaxed and comfortable seating for the perusal of the extensive menu, which includes country tavern favourites such as homemade venison burger, braised red cabbage, Isle of Mull cheddar and Massey's farm chips. Canines are more than welcome in the bar and the boot room; a bowl of dog biscuits, together with dog ‘beer’ (meat-based stock) to refresh them, are very thoughtful touches.
