Established in an old school this place definitely has more of a restaurant feel than a pub and if other nights are as busy as it was when I visited early on a Saturday, then the... More

Loved the place, the food and the drink. The building is the beautifully preserved old school which served the nearby estate, and is decorated in a delightfully quirky manner. My wife had what she described as the best soup ever - and she should know. My asparagus was beautifully green and tender in a style I haven't seen for years.... More

Having just moved into the area I was recommended the Cholmondeley Arms as a great place to go for some good quality food in a lovely setting. It was a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon a couple of weeks ago and with some family coming to visit I thought is would be an ideal time to try it out. Firstly I... More

After going for dinner this evening, we left just over an hour later with no food! A very distracted member of took the order and after 45 minutes of waiting, and cleaning our own table with wet wipes due to it being dirty, we asked how long the food would be, only to be told the kitchen never received our...

We called in on the spur of the moment and had a delicious late afternoon meal. This converted old school is a lovely setting, relaxed and informal with friendly, helpful staff and a good choice of food. For gin lovers, there is a huge selection of every type of gin imaginable.

We were staying approx 25 miles from this place, however we had by chance come across it on the Internet and by golly it did not disappoint. We were a party of 4 plus a rather picky dog. We all enjoyed our lunch ( The dog had his own special lunch along get with doggie beer) The ambience of the... More
