Great for comfort food and lots of space

This is a proper pub - if you know what I mean, good beer, good food and friendly staff and customers.Tracey and Ian run a very tight ship, all of the staff work like this is their own business, attentive without getting in the way and delivering super service.

Turned up on a busy Saturday night without booking and managed to get a table without waiting too long. Staff very polite and friendly, food tasty and value for money. Great place to pop into if you have dogs as the pub is dog friendly.

Came here for a meal with my parents the evening before my brother's wedding reception here. The food was great, ie good quality and lots of it, the staff including the owners were friendly and helpful, a really nice place. My brother's wedding reception the following day was also wonderful, the food was amazing and nothing was too much trouble... More

We went for Sunday lunch a few months ago, the normal menu was on offer and the traditional Sunday lunch was available via a partially self help carvery. Most of us went for the carvery which was OK but I have had better, however it was very keenly priced. The pub offers lots of facilities including a skittles alley, evening... More

Called in after a walk on Bulkeley hill, good beer and excellent food. Nice touches like cushions on the outside seats make you stay that bit longer in comfort.

Enjoyed a good meal here - varied menu, and good daily specials board. Service prompt and friendly. Despite being a Saturday evening, we weren't rushed or hurried to leave our table once our meal was finished. Would be happy to go again.

We had a large part of ten people, we all choose the carvery and were all pleased. The children's playground was great for a play outside between courses. The staff were very efficient. Lovely setting, good food, would visit again! Out just lacked a little wow factor...and the thoroughfare between tales in the stables was very crowded. Otherwise, really good

Never been to a pub where the staff are so.polite and friendly. Food was excellent Would easily recommend the Bickerton Poacher to anyone I know. Lovely setting outside if you want to eat as well as such comfortable areas indoors.
