Good Pub Guide Recommended

Interesting pub with a decent range of real ales and wines, well presented food and sizeable garden; bedrooms

An imaginatively converted former schoolhouse, this place has a great deal to look at. The bar rooms have lofty ceilings and tall Victorian windows plus huge old radiators and school paraphernalia (hockey sticks, tennis rackets, trunks and so forth), armchairs by a fire with a massive stag's head above, big mirrors and all sorts of dining chairs and tables on warmly coloured rugs over bare boards; fresh flowers, church candles and background music. As well as an extraordinary number of gins (400 and counting), you'll find Cholmondeley Best (from Weetwood) plus Merlin The Wizard, Salopian Shropshire Gold and a guest ale on handpump, 15 wines by the glass and a farm cider. A sizeable lawn (which drifts off into open countryside) has plenty of seating and there's more in front overlooking the quiet road. The bedrooms are in the old headmaster's house opposite and named after real and fictional teachers; the pictures dotted about actually did belong to former headmasters. Cholmondeley Castle Gardens are nearby. Disabled access. The pub is owned by Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin of Cheshire Cat Pubs & Bars.

What the licensee says

The Cholmondeley Arms has won many accolades over the years, building a great reputation for freshly cooked, locally sourced food. Its menu is quintessentially English and includes such truly flavoursome favourites as Our Traditional Pub Plate to share, Devilled Kidneys on toast or for your main meal the Hand crafted Steak and Kidney pie perhaps followed by Sues Bakewell Tart!!!The decor of the new Cholmondeley Arms is warm and inviting with large mirrors and church candles, fresh flowers, open fire places and interesting old school furniture such as the blackboards featuring forthcoming events. The pub also has six en-suite bedrooms situated in the Headmasters House opposite. Famous too for offering well over 300 different Gins, local ales brewed within a thirty mile radius of the pub and its Malts and Ports, the Cholmondeley Arms is truly a real pub Local and Proud, popular with suits, Barbours and a smattering of farmers!!
