Digest this mini review in 60 seconds.


An elegant house built in 1791 for a wealthy local family, this property in the 1940s became the home of the Hatton family whose son Christopher went on to become chairman of Greenall Whitley brewery. In 1991 it became the Hollow Tree pub but a change of ownership followed and last year 16 Hospitality (who also own The Swan at Tarporley and The Oystercatcher in Rhosneigr) transformed it into this very pleasant dining pub with rooms.


Superior pub food menu that changes regularly to use seasonal ingredients- lots of modern British cooking with flair, favourites like gourmet burgers and huge fish and chips, and a good selection of wines and beers. I enjoyed a starter of king prawn and monkfish with sweet chilli jam (£8.95) My friend loved her seared cod cheeks with black pudding, pea puree and lemon and caper dressing (£7.50). I highly recommend my mains of Partridge Burger with smoked bacon, cheese, onion rings and chips (£12.95). Across the table a toad in seafood linguine was being devoured: prawns, salmon, clams and cod (£13.95). We were pretty full so decided to share a banoffee cheesecake (£6.95): a good decision.


Warm, friendly and welcoming. Spacious, with plenty of tables in appealing alcoves and corners.


We were served by two nice young chaps who both said they’d not worked here long, but both were efficient and able to answer our questions about the food.


Three courses for two, with a large glass of NZ Sauvignon Blanc each and coffees, came to £91. Not cheap but it’s good food in a very cosy setting.
