Description: Formerly known as The Drovers, The Gaping Gander, The Rowlands and the plain old Helter Skelter, Oswalds@Helter Skelter is a good old-fashioned pub serving real beer and real food. The first floor of this Cheshire restaurant serves a mix of traditional and contemporary cuisine, including meals such as black pudding with potato rosti, bacon and a tomato sauce, swordfish with chilli prawns, chorizo and wild rice and duck with a plum and ginger sauce, while the 'Home Comforts' section offers dishes like a cask ale pie served with chips and peas. A pub that serves good food and a good pint - It doesn't get much better than that!

Busy pub selling excellent real ale. Upstairs restuarant is really good value - lunch two for one most days. Real food cooked by a real chef with real ale - what more could one want.

The turkey dinner was dire. Dry slices of turkey served swimming in a large quantity of dark beef gravy with a dry slice of stuffing. This was supposed to be a special occasion!

Can't comment on the food but worth a visit for the beer alone. Beers often from local breweries, including Weetwood and usually a real cider is available.

Firstly, food & service on the night were great. I had the belly pork which was gorgeous, lots of lovely crisp crackling. Wine was very reasonably priced and a nice drop & the ales on offer were as always a great choice. However, they had lost my booking. I had called up earlier in the week & requested a table... More

We have eaten at Oswalds, the Helter Skelter a few times, and have normally had a nice meal; not that special, but enjoyed, all the same. However, I have a sweet tooth and the desert menu is decidedly dated, obviously not home made and not inspiring at all. Why do restaurants cut corners with the third course? And I don't... More

Another lovely meal here, food always good, although service was slow at times. We were a group of 12 who had purposely booked before 7pm to get the discount. We all paid individually, but unfortunately the first few didn't get the discount. When we realised this the girl refused to refund the difference. It did rather spoil the evening which... More
