Our doors are now open!
We're delighted to be able to say we can now welcome those from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (including children), into the pub at long last.
Just to reassure you, we still have all the same safety measures in place, and not that any of us go anywhere without a face covering these days, but just a reminder to wear yours when you’re not seated at the table. And, just to let you know, we’ll be happily accepting and issuing meal tickets again, (collect 6 and receive a main course up to £12). Don’t worry if you have tickets with a November 2020 expiry on, we’ll happily extend these until November 2021, just dust them off and bring them along.
We are so looking forward to seeing you, come rain or shine.

Welcome to the website for the Morris Dancer
The Morris Dancer can claim to be Kelsall's oldest surviving public house. For most of its history it has been known as The Globe and can be dated back to Cheshire records of the 1630s. Of the many historic landlords the most colourful and still well remembered was Brian "Rusty" Williams, the licensee from 1977-89, who renamed it The Morris Dancer in 1980. "Rusty" brought the annual Cheshire Folk Festival to Kelsall, reverting back to the classic traditions that once surrounded Inns, a tradition that is still upheld today.
You will find a large bar at the heart of the pub, stocked with local ales and a myriad of delights to take your fancy. There is a large, bright, high ceiling roomed to the rear, leading out onto our terrace and a small, cosy beamed bar room to the other side of the pub, so you can choose to sit wherever your mood takes you.
We have a Private Dining room that will happily seat sixteen in comfort, perfect for business meetings or for those cosy occasions when you want to be all together as a family or with friends.
If you would like to keep up to speed with our developments, Like us on Facebook, or subscribe to our mailing list below and we will send you the odd update. By subscribing to our mailing list, once we are open, you will be entered into our monthly competition to win a meal to the value of £50.
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.
