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.

We hope to welcome to you soon,
Stephanie and the Morris Dancer team.
