More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Special occasions
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
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!

“Lovely food,friendly staff. no wheelchair access”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Me and my husband have been a few times,food is lovely,steak is cooked to perfection,it is quite expensive but worth it for special occasions. Would like vegetables to be included with the meal rather than paying extra.
Service is good but room could do with updating,also there is only one menu, no a la carte, the menu we were given was the Christmas menu...in January
Would and will go back again.
Worth a mention that there is no lift only stairs so no wheelchair access.

“Superb Food & Beer”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Oswalds management, please take note of this & numerous other requests, to improve the decor in the restaraunt.

It is far too gloomy & depressing, if you were to lighten the decor & refresh the paintings, the reviews of the establishment would be far more encouraging.

I appreciate that the quality of food & beer is excellent and service is prompt & efficient & I have given this a 5* rating.

But for the decor I would rate this as 3* at most.

Regards

Pete

“Wacky decor - good food”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Been there a few times with work. Food consistently excellent and wide choice. Decor and ambience take a bit of getting used to but food quality outweighs that. Best of all, there's a beer (as opposed to wine) list to choose from. Word of warning - they close at 9pm mid-week!
