Certificate of Excellence
The Vicarage Freehouse & Rooms is a 17th-century grade II listed country pub & hotel - essentially a restaurant with rooms. We are foodie-hub with a locally sourced menu - everything is driven by the gardeners, foragers, farmers and suppliers of Cheshire. The Vicarage takes its inspiration from the Cheshire countryside, utilising British produce and resources while championing eco-sustainability. The menus change depending on the seasons and what can be sourced locally. All our rooms echo our own country-boutique style ... but not overdone. We strip out any unnecessary nonsense and focus on everything that matters for a quality stay. A comfy bed, all have en-suite facilities, great decor, quality coffee facilities and a cracking breakfast. A simple recipe really... Dogs and wellies openly welcomed ..!

The Vicarage has never let us down in four visits to see family living locally. Comfortable, nice quirky atmosphere, good food and service. Ideally placed for M6 and road networks generally but quiet, especially nice in rooms overlooking the river.

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed for a couple of nights whilst travelling south to visit family. First class hotel. Terrific, friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant cannot be faulted and the meals which we had on both evenings were excellent. So handily placed for Chester and Greater Manchester area.
