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.

This marvellous Grade 1 listed pub is believed to date from 1656 and was once the residence of the Lords of the Manor of Sandbach.
It is a building held in some affection by local townspeople, who formed a pressure group to save the decaying building when it lay unoccupied for some four years before we were steered towards it.
The building makes the most wonderful pub. There are gems of historic features and atmosphere in abundance with the wooden floors, beams and opens fires. We added a light filled garden room to the rear of the building which looks out upon a stone terrace, both of which make the most of sunnier days.
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.
