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!
