Gastro Pubs in Cheshire
Home to half-timber rural villages, this is one pretty region to stroll through, working up an appetite before visiting one of the finest gastro pubs in Cheshire, if not the UK. In an area boasting such fertile landscapes, expect succulent beef and lamb, and sweet vegetables from nearby farms, whipped into butternut squash tagines, smoked haddock kedgeree and braised ham hock.
What do you get when you venture into the villages? Try Alderley Edge for starters – home to the rich and famous, fantastic boutique outlets and oh-so-fine dining. More of a literary type? Visit Daresbury – the birthplace of Lewis Carroll. Or, there’s pretty Malpas, Tarporley for ladies who lunch, and Knutsford – a petite town with a big history. Along with guided walks, nearby grand Tatton Park, and a timber-framed heritage centre, there are divine places to stay with our pub accommodation in Knutsford.
And the jewel in the crown: Chester, a charming city with all the trimmings. Roman ruins scattered throughout, ancient medieval walls, a sparkling river, cosmopolitan shops and a magnificent cathedral. Oh, did we mention you may also recognise it from a long-running TV programme. Phew…
Country pub accommodation in Cheshire is as stylish as its surroundings, and with so much to do on your doorstep, it may well be a place you return to. Maybe for the Macclesfield Silk Museum, Ellesmere Port or the delightful canals and waterways which make up The Cheshire Ring.
