Bookings for up to 6 people from a single household and 'the bell' ringing an hour earlier
We are currently only able to accept tables for up to 6 people. Inside, these 6 people (including adults and children) must be from a single household, whereas outdoors they can be from multiple households. We’ll also need to ensure you’re fed and watered by 10pm and customers are required to wear masks indoors when not seated at their tables.
With ‘the bell’ being rung an hour earlier, if you fancy a tipple to take home, we have some ‘last order’ drinks for you to enjoy at home. We also have our ‘Click and Collect’ menu up and running, so you can enjoy some of your favourites from the comfort of your home – head to our Click and Collect page to whet your appetite and place your order.
Please note, the above changes apply here as we are in a tier 2 area. However, if you live in a tier 3 area, please follow the rules that apply to that tier.
Thank you for your support and for helping us all play our part in keeping everyone safe.
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.
