A Very Warm Welcome to The Bull at ShocklachThe Bull is a country pub dating back to 1850 with a quirky, gorgeous patchwork floor of hand painted tiles. We are a family friendly pub and restaurant set in the rural hamlet of Shocklach a stone's throw from the village of Malpas, located right in the heart of historic Cheshire and yet just 20 minutes drive south of Chester and north of Wrexham.
