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!

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

Well, if you are not looking for something special, in every way, this fits the bill. The food is not bad, pretty decent in fact, but certainly not memorable. Service also ok, pleasant enough. Devoid of any atmosphere. They do not do any cocktails, as I discovered on getting a blank look on ordering 2 fairly basic ones. Prices reasonable.... More

Visited here on a Tuesday night and was surprised to see it very busy both upstairs and downstairs. Very friendly staff who immediately showed us upstairs to a lovely dining area. Good choice of food on the menu and my brother and I both opted for the burgers with stilton cheese and bacon with a side of onion rings. Drinks... More

Saw the status on Trip Advisor and was disappointed with the venue for Saturday lunch. Didn't eat here but maybe I'd visit if other rooms were a available.

What a great place , found it on T.A and Onion Ring with good reports and I can genuinely add our 4 recommendations. We met our friends for lunch today and although the restaurant was very quiet it was probably due to the monsoon weather,however I must say the 2 for 1 lunch menu shows lots of choice and the...

It gets busy for a reason - the food is great. Really good pub downstairs and a fantastic restaurant upstairs. Good value for money too

Visited on 7 October for second time, the first visit was great the second exceeding the first. A lovely pub with great atmosphere welcomes you on arrival. A marvellous selection of ale is available. The restraint is upstairs and there is nothing pretentious about the place or the staff. It is very cosy and the girls working in the tester... More

Friendly service, well-kept beer and excellent food - I just wish I had known about Helter Skelter before. There is also easy parking nearby. I shall definitely visit again.
