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!

Yet again a fantastic meal. It is always difficult to choose as there are so many items on the menu that we fancy. This is complimented by a good wine list and of course a great selection of high quality ales. Thank you everyone, a great meal, great service, great night.

We found this restaurant through the Gourmet Society while visiting the area with friends. The reviews looked good, so we booked it 'unseen'. On arrival we all wondered, without speaking out loud, what we were in for, as the exterior did not seem very enticing. However, on entering the upstairs restaurant, we were warmly greeted into a clean, if not... More

Have been going to this pub for years, and it is fantastic and one not to be missed if you are in the area.

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
