Temporary morning and lunchtime closure of Aldford Bridge - May 10th to June 14th
We have been made aware that the council need to close Aldford bridge in order to repair the flood damage from earlier in the year. The schedule of works is that the bridge will be closed to vehicles between 9.15am and 2.30pm, Monday to Friday, from May 10th until June 14th.
The plan is to keep a passage open for pedestrians and cyclists during each day of closure. You will be pleased to hear that the Grosvenor Arms will remain open each lunchtime so if you would like to join us for lunch, either drive to us from the south via Farndon or you could park on the Chester side of the bridge and build up a thirst and appetite by walking the short distance to us from the bridge. Failing that, book a later lunch and drive to us when the bridge is back open at 2.30pm.
If you have any concerns regarding bookings please give us a call and we will be pleased to help you all we can.
Our outside space is now open – Hooray!
We can now welcome those from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (including children), to enjoy some alfresco eating and drinking. We do have outside areas that can be booked online between April 12th and May 17th or alternatively, we are keeping some tables aside should you just want to pop down and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat without a booking. (Please note, from May 17th when we’re able to open inside the pub, you won’t be able to book outside tables online. Any bookings made from May 17th will be for inside the pub.).
Whilst we are obviously all keeping everything crossed for good weather, it’s best to come prepared for every eventuality, so wrap up warm, bring a blanket and perhaps even an umbrella, just in case. If the heavens do open, we’re really sorry but we won’t be able to allow you to shelter inside the pub.
We can't wait to see you all again.

We are probably better reflected from the garden view of our pub which is a delight of higgledy-piggledy roof lines and soft, warm Cheshire common brick.
We are a charming pub with well-spaced rooms, a beautiful garden room which fills with sunlight and leads onto a great outside terrace with a very pleasing garden, which in turn leads onto the village green. The locals are very fond of it as it's the perfect spot to watch the world go by.
Our menus have their roots in modern British cooking, with a hint of the more exotic about them. They change often to reflect the seasons and are supported by a well-balanced wine list offering a good quality but affordable range and a well-stocked bar of local ales and interesting spirits.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
Thanks to our customers recommending us, you'll find us in the:
