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!

Visited with colleagues. The food is to a very high standard. Steak and ale pie was as it should be rather than the bland imitation offered in a lot of places. Other dishes looked good too. Really good beer choice too

Having looked at Trip Advisor for reviews of restaurants in Frodsham, I came across this establishment and was impressed with the drinks on offer and varied menu and all reasonable priced. I had the Belly of Pork with the mash and Vegatables in a Cider and Onion gravy all cooked very well.
