Weekend 7th May

This weekend our ales are still staying local but this time we are serving a fine selection from the fabulous Coach House Brewing Company. It’s  only 12.5 miles as the crow flies to the brewery smack on the banks of the Mersey in Warrington. Our ales this week are:-

  • Cheshire Oak ABV 4.1%. A dark oak coloured bitter, full bodied and smooth on the palate with a malty aroma.
  • Farriers Best Bitter ABV 3.9%. A golden amber coloured beer, slightly sweet aroma but the rich Target hop flavours develop to a dry finish.
  • Cheshire Gold ABV 4.1%. Golden coloured with a fresh citrus hop aroma creating a pine lemon crisp finish.
  • Postlethwaites ABV 4.6%. Pale amber ale, dry and fruity, dry hopped in the traditional manner which gives it a fine hop aroma.

And just to help it all go down we have free live incidental music each day.

Friday 7th from 7pm our traditional Open Mic.

Sat 8th We’ve had to cancel tonights band as rain was blowing into the marquee and we though we wouldn’t be able to open tonight. So we are open, but sorry no music.
April Moon are rescheduled to 29th May.
A cosmic pub rock band performing upbeat covers from 70’s & 80’s. Think Fleetwood Mac, Creedence, Beatles, Doors, Floyd & Queen

Sun 9th Acoustic Jam from 3pm onwards.

Our burger bar will be serving Taylors of Lathom’s delicious burgers from 3pm Sat & Sun.

No booking, just turn up. There are plenty of tables in our Open Air Marquee. You might want to bring a blanket for the evening though!

A quick lunch time trip ended up being a trip to remember. The all round experience was absolutely lovely. The food was cooked to prefection and the pub itself lovely and clean with a very relaxed atmosphere. We were served by a very attentive and obliging young lady who couldn't do enough to make our lunch a very special experience. We will certainly be going back, hopefully as soon as possible. Thank you..

Visited today and found the staff to be lovely as well as patient with the customers. Tried the steak and chips, cooked ourselves on a hot stone. Very tasty. Delicious chips, salad and peppercorn sauce. Serving a good quality pint too. We sat outside which had the sun until around 8pm in the beer garden. Would recommend.
