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!

“Meal on 9th August”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had a meal for four on 9th August. This is the first time we have eaten in Frodsham and it will not be the last - and now we wouldn't dream of eating elsewhere. Undoubtedly the finest food we've had in years - perfect burger, exquisite duck, luscious belly pork. The wine, beers, timing and service were all perfect too. You have got it dead right. Well done.
(PS: this was the address on the review card but couldn't find one for trip advisor.)
Sincerely, James Ellis (and you can quote me).

Came for a meal at the beginning of the week and all I can say is wow! Great value, very reasonable size portions, great range of foreign beers and very friendly. I will be back!

I can't believe we have never been here before. So glad we came, the food was lovely, the atmosphere was great and the price was very good. We are looking forward to trying the Sunday lunch, must remember to book!
