This old Cheshire pub has been reinvented as a fine restaurant. The food is very good and the service excellent (thank you "Tarj"). The atmosphere is relaxed and stylish - old wooden beams, open fire, mixed with contemporary furniture and comfy chairs. Try it!

15th Century Coaching Inn nestled in the small hamlet of Handley near Chester on the A41 towards Whitchurch. Untouched and still in its original state of decor which is most unusual now days. Serving lunch and evening meals mainly british cuisine all freshly sourced local produce and cooked fresh straight to your table for you to enjoy. Friendly and smiley staff always on hand to ensure your experience is better than Disney.
