Lovely decor and atmosphere

All in all, this place is a really nice, village restaurant and I would probably go again if I was in the area. The food is really good. I had the fish and chips which was a huge portion and justified the £13 price. They have a good selection of gins, if that's your sort of thing. It's... read more

We've eaten here several times this year, as we particularly like the location and the ambience of the Cholmondeley Arms - which includes real log fires in winter and being able to eat outside in the summer enjoying the surrounding Cheshire countryside. However, we've found the food here to be generally fairly average, and the service slow and disorganised -... More

What a lovely place...! Friendly, relaxed atmosphere, wholesome, well-cooked food, fantastic drinks selection and brilliant staff. The building itself is a beautiful transformation of the old school, with a few nods to it's heritage still in the restaurant - but not too much that it becomes tacky! Visited last night for the second time (the first time I couldn't remember... More

Just experienced GIn Fest 2015 and can't wait for next year. I was in 2 minds as to writing the review as I wanted this to be my secret, but that is selfish. A great weekend with friends, food, music and GIN (including the arrival of the 250th gin). Friendly helpful staff, (I wont name them all but Jess, Oli,... More

Ideal lunch stopover if travelling on the A49.If using the gins offers its better to stay over or have a designated driver.Food and service were excellent and there is a proviso for outdoor eating out if the weather is favourable.

A lovely pub in a converted school just down the road from where we live. A good bar which sells all of the traditional drinks but also offers around 200 types of gin, it also offers gin classes which we have attended which were also great and very interesting. The food offer is also very good, good quality homemade food... More

Relatively informal, this former local school still retains some "school days" menu elements as part of the theme approach of good food, well served and sensibly priced. A "downside" is that tables cannot be pre-booked but then if you don't want an unfed detention of having to wait, quite simply don't be late and get there early!

We went to the Cholmondeley Arms for a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary on the 3rd June. While Sat down waiting for our meal we were shocked to see how dirty and dusty it was around us. There were MASSIVE cobwebs above us and a bookcase with old tennis rackets on it with months of dust. Underneath the radiator... More

What a refreshing change the building has been transformed to a friendly quirky restaurant. Four of us shared the fish platter for starters I then had the cod loin which was superb in its simplicity. Great selection of gins and I will be returning to try a few out.

A little out of the way the Cholmondley Arms serves up a delightful menu with effecient friendly service and a good choice of beers. 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
