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!

We visit the Helter Skelter on a regular basis, the choice of Real Ales is fabulous, at least 8 on offer at any one time, the bar staff are very friendly, and the food is very good, a must if you are visiting Frodsham.

Visited here on a quiet Monday night. The place although nearly empty still had a good atmosphere. The three of us (one veggie) tried a number of the ales and ordered from the bar menu. We ordered burger, veggie lasagne and a lite bite. All were excellent, and capped off a fine evening. This place is a must visit if... More

We dine out twice a week visiting different establishments to give us a variety of both food & ambience. Although now retired we have been in the pub/catering trade for 30 years winning many catering awards, which I would say gives us the qualification to assess and review catering establishments. Our visit to Oswald's @ Helter Skelter on Monday evening... More

The restaurant was very busy giving it a good atmosphere and buzz. Service was excellent and friendly. We have lived near Frodsham for many years but never eaten here despite many good reports. We were not disappointed, the food was good hearty pub food, reasonably priced with the busy bar downstairs in which to finish your evening off.

This is the 3rd year we have come for Christmas lunch. The food has always been fantastic and this year was no different. The reason I am lowering the score was due to the service. It was a little slow however on of our party pre-ordered their meal without gravy. When their meal arrived it had gravy on so they... More

I booked this restaurant for my birthday and would like to thank all concerned for the exceptional food and service receive from all staff, who were also courteous and friendly.
