The Bull’s Head

1-bulls-head-better-shotSpecialising in whiskey (and whisky!), The Bull’s Head has been part of the family since 2010 after a major refurbishment.

Back in May 2010 we set out to restore a ‘dying’ pub into a little gem, a nostalgic village pub ‘local and proud’.  We offer home cooked, flavoursome and wholesome food cooked freshly by our kitchen team, and a great array of local Cheshire cask ales across seven pumps which are always selected from breweries within a 30 mile radius of our pub.

We offer over 80 whiskies and a well selected wine list with 16 different wines by the glass that cater for all tastes.

Most importantly our team at the Bull’s Head are the key to our success! The service our team offers is something we feel exceptionally passionate about – friendliness goes a long way. We are very proud of our pub and of the great comments we receive from our customers both local and from further afield. We have so much fun running the Bull’s Head. Our team and our customers make the pub what it is today.

Come in and enjoy our pub whatever the occasion whether it be a walk with the dog or a drive out in to the Cheshire countryside.

The Church Inn

1-church-inn-1The Church Inn of Mobberley is a traditional yet stylish 18th Century country pub located on the edge of the village opposite the 12th Century St. Wilfrid’s Church. Mobberley (as you’ll find out whilst staying here) is a leafy haven situated between the Cheshire towns of Wilmslow and Knutsford and on a straight country lane from Hale. It is only 8 miles from Manchester Airport and only 15 miles from the city of Manchester yet you are in the heart of some of Cheshire’s most beautiful countryside.

The Church Inn re-opened in June 2013 after being acquired in a near derelict state. Now fully restored and refurbished we offer great food in an old Country Tavern environment. The pub has a main bar with intimate small dining rooms, there is a ‘boot room’ for a ‘muddy boot’ pint of ale. Upstairs sits the George Mallory room and the Chef’s Library, both available for private dining and meetings. We have a pretty summer terrace overlooking St. Wilfred’s Church and the famous stocks of Mobberley.

Freshly cooked food is prepared by our team of chefs and we have ales from within a 15 mile boundary, but with one pump dedicated to craft ales from further away. Wine is celebrated here too with a simple yet interesting list.

The Three Greyhounds Inn

1-three-gsWe opened the doors to the new Three Greyhounds Inn on Thursday October 11th 2012, after a full refurbishment and restoration works. The pub had sadly closed down and was on its way to extinction before it was rescued. Anyone familiar with our pubs will know we firmly believe in creating warm, relaxing and friendly pubs with freshly cooked and locally sourced food, fine ales from local microbreweries, unique spirits as well as fourteen or so wines by the glass.

The Three Greyhounds Inn is no different and we are very proud indeed of the work we have done to salvage this 300 year old Country Pub. Prior to being a pub the buildings were part of a working farm. This is reflected in the menu with fantastic British farm cheeses, eggs and ice creams to name but a few and on the bar local craft cider brandy makers are celebrated as well as local micro-brewery ales.
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful pub whether you are out for a drive, whether you are cyclists, walkers or horse riders who enjoy the surrounding Cheshire countryside as well as the nearby Shakerley Mere and we welcome well behaved pet dogs in our ‘Brandy Snug’. We also have a lovely private dining/party room with its own bar called the ‘Old Doghouse’ that can seat 60 comfortably within a country barn environment for that relaxed party with food and drink.

The Cholmondely Arms

1-the-cholmondeley-armsSet in beautiful Cheshire countryside adjacent to Cholmondeley Castle, the Cholmondeley Arms is probably one of England’s most unique pubs. It sits inside a former Victorian village schoolhouse on Lord Cholmondeley’s estate. Dating back to 1862 the school was converted in 1988 and it was the first public house on the estate for over a century!

The old schoolhouse was originally converted into a village pub by Julian and Ginny Harrison and Guy and Carolyn Ross-Lowe. The pub still maintains many of its original features and creates a charming and characterful place to visit. The Cholmondeley Arms has won many accolades over the years, building a great reputation for freshly cooked, locally sourced food and its menu is quintessentially English.

The pub was acquired and wonderfully restored by us in 2011. The décor 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 nearly 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, Barbour’s and a smattering of farmers!

The Fitzherbert Arms

1-2fitz-ext1The restoration of the Fitz is something we are very proud of and we are delighted to have given the village of Swynnerton something to be proud of. We opened on the 16th February 2016, two years to the day that we met Lord Stafford for the first time to talk about turning around the Fitz.

The Fitzherbert Arms dates back to around 1818 and is at the centre of the old village of Swynnerton on Lord Stafford’s estate. Not long off Junction 15 of the M6 following signs to Eccleshall, you are soon in to the lovely Staffordshire country side and on your way to the Fitzherbert Arms.

Back in February 2014 we set out to restore a ‘dying’ pub into a gem, a nostalgic village pub ‘local and proud’. It took nearly two years to get on site after a lot of careful planning but the wait has been worth it.

We offer home cooked, wholesome food cooked freshly by our kitchen team, a great array of local Staffordshire and Cheshire cask ales across five pumps, which are always selected from breweries within a 35 mile radius of our pub. Try our Swynnerton Stout brewed at Titanic Brewery here in Staffordshire or our Fitzherbert Best Bitter brewed just over the ‘border’ in Cheshire by Weetwood. We also have a real cider pump to enjoy.

We offer over 30 different ports and a well selected wine list with 16 different wines by the glass that cater for all tastes.

Come and enjoy our pub whatever the occasion, whether it be a walk with the dog or a drive out in to the Staffordshire countryside.

The Red Lion

1-view-of-pub-right3The Red Lion is one of Weymouth’s finest and most famous pubs. It is recognised for being the pub nearest to the Weymouth R.N.L.I. and is known as the lifeboat man’s pub. On the walls are great pictures and artifacts from the history of the lifeboat and its crews over the years in Weymouth.

The Red Lion is also famous for being the Old Devenish Brewery ‘Tap’. The Devenish Brewery (now closed) is opposite the Red Lion in Hope Square. The history and heritage of being an ale house is reflected in the pub too with one wall made from old barrels originally from the brewery.

On the back bar are over 60 rums to celebrate the pubs naval and seafaring connections and of course the food menu reflects the abundance of seafood available in Weymouth.

In April 2009, the pub was acquired by us and went through a minor refurbishment to tidy up a pub which was on the verge of closing down.

The Red Lion had its true pub name restored at the turn of the Millennium after spending a few years as the ‘Dorset Brewers Ale House’. The Red Lion has always been famous for its ales and still is today, but now the pub has developed a good name for its home cooked food and amazing collection of rums and whiskies on its splendid back bar shelves. The pub has its own ‘bible’ of whiskies and rums for enthusiasts to look through.

In February 2012 the Red Lion underwent major restoration and refurbishment works, finding old walls and a fire place as well as revealing the old bar frontage. We were able to re-invest in the Red Lion because of the loyalty of so many of our customers and on 14th February 2012 the Red Lion re-opened its doors to reveal a truly beautiful pub . . . local and proud.
