Significant during WW2, The Cheshire Cat, near Chester, has returned to its pastoral nature through the beautiful surrounding country and the delivery of seasonal British pub cuisine. These characteristics can be enjoyed by the hearth-fire in winter or in the al fresco garden in summer.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Cheshire Cat menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Cheshire Cat ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In Christleton, The Cheshire Cat is just 10 minutes’ drive from Chester.
