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!

I've been drinking in this pub for 20+ years and have seen it ran by several managers with varying degrees of success. The current manager/owner Nick and his family have turned this place in to a real gem and a haven for real ale aficienados and good food lovers. The range of real and craft ales on display are amazing... More

We visited for a family birthday. Between us we had a wide variety of delicious meals including black pudding, whitebait, spicy fish cakes, chicken and an absolutely stunning cheesecake. Service was friendly and efficient. Our only criticism was the slightly dated decor, such enjoyable food deserves a better setting! I am sure we will be back to try some more... More

Went to have a beer in the pub - great choices, and good atmosphere! Then went upstairs into the restaurant. Lovely seabass with potatoes and asparagus, my colleague had the steak. All well cooked and tasty. Attentive and friendly service, decor ok and surprisingly roomy - a very good place to have your dinner!

After frequenting this hostelry on a regular basis for drinks for 8 years I can't quite believe I haven't visited this gem of a restaurant sooner! We visited as a family group of 13 celebrating my husband's birthday. From start to finish absolutely everything was spot on. The staff were very helpful and patient with such a large order. The...

Went with another couple. Food pretty mediocre and no atmosphere at all. Would be all right for bigger parties, but not a romantic place to eat.
