Bulls Head, Mobberley
Dispensing hospitality since 1812, this classic village pub reopened in 2010 after major refurbishment which, cleverly, youd never know has happened, such is the traditional, Nostalgic atmosphere beneath its low beamed ceilings.
Theres an excellent range of Cheshire cask ales from microbreweries within a 30 mile radius of the pub, 65 whiskies, and a hearty, no-nonsense home-cooked pub grub menu.

Fox & Barrel, Cotebrook
The mission statement at this 16-year stalwart of the Good Pub Guide, now also Good Food Guide listed, is to offer an unbeatable combination of good food, fine wines, well-kept cask ales and great company. The standards of preparation and presentation are uniformly high in everything we do and represent. Chef Gary Kidds use of the best raw materials produces a succession of superb top restaurant quality dishes.

Red Lion, High Lane
Steve Pilling and Simon Stanley, who took the Manchester chophouses to acclaimed culinary
heights and more recently have won high praise and many awards for their Damson Restaurant in Heaton Moor, preside over one of Robinsons flagship pub-restaurants. Good service, finely executed classic British food, well-kept cask ales and a top-notch wine list makes the Red Lion a destination hostelry for miles around.
