Stop off for a warming Sunday lunch in a lovely Cheshire pub

Bells of Peover, near Knutsford

This historic country pub is a Cheshire mainstay. It dates back to 1839 when it was named the Warren de Tabley Arms – take a look at the front wall and you can still see the Tabley family crest. You’ll also spot an American flag alongside the British one. This is because Generals Eisenhower and Patton made plans for the D-Day invasion over lunch here in 1944 when American soldiers were billeted at nearby Peover Hall.

Today, this stylish dining pub serves excellent food in beautiful surroundings. And its Sunday menu is one not to be missed. As well as a superb traditional Sunday roast, with choices of chicken, beef, pork, a mixed roast or nut wellington, there are also plenty of classic pub dishes to choose from, including beer battered haddock and lamb loin. You can also expect ingredients to have come from the region’s growers and farmers.


The Swettenham Arms, Congleton.

Spend an afternoon at the Swettenham Arms, where you can drink real ale provided by local artisan breweries and sample a menu created with carefully selected local ingredients, all by a pleasant open fire.

There is a lot to choose from on the Swettenham menu from steak, mushroom and ale pie to Cheshire gammon with duck eggs. If you prefer a traditional Sunday lunch, you can have one every day of the week. The Great British Roast Dinner is served on the daily specials menu, with a choice of beef or lamb with roast gratin seasonal vegetables and all the trimmings. The Swettenham Arms has a unique charm with its very own lavender and sunflower meadow.


The Chetwode Arms at Lower Whitley

The Chetwode Arms has a reputation for serving hearty food, cask ales and a selection of wines. The traditional character of the pub is well complemented by a diverse menu of exotic meats as well as classic British beef, game and lamb. Among the choice of avant-garde fare there is a fine selection of llama, kangaroo and crocodile, offering a Sunday dinner with a difference.

Meats are prepared on a hot bed of stone - a practice that dates back thousands of years.


Swan with Two Nicks, Little Bollington

As you’d expect from a pub nestled in Cheshire farmland, the food here uses the best that nature has to offer. You’ll find old favourites, contemporary classics, fish dishes, succulent steaks and recipes inspired by ingredients from around the world, as well as an expertly cooked roast on a Sunday, served in addition to the usual menus.

Game season is also showcased from September through to January with dishes including tandoori partridge, game pie and mallard breast making it onto the menu.


The Windmill Inn, Tabley

A relaxing meal awaits at the Windmill Inn in Tabley, a list of traditional options including fish and chips and hearty steak and ale puddings are served throughout the day.

Why not stop by on a lazy Sunday afternoon for the popular traditional Sunday carvery, served with prime roasted meat and seasonal vegetables. The Windmill also offers a bespoke cake making service and hosts regular meetings of car clubs.
