Big Thanks

I stayed at the Cholmondeley Arms on Saturday with my husband Bob. It was our first visit and we thought it was out of this world. Really enjoyed the relaxed vibe and the food and drink was excellent. So big thanks to everyone for a great stay.

I loved my Greenalls Bloom and Fevertree with strawberries so much I have to have a bottle, so as usual I’ve been stalking the internet. Don’t know if you already know of it, but there is a brilliant website, Master of Obviously they specialise in single malts, but they have a decent selection of other spirits, liqueurs etc. They’ve got about 60-70 gins and genevers in stock and some of them look pretty special. I expect you’ve got most of them, but it might be worth a look. I like the look of the saffron gin, and the heather one.

Anyway, sure to see you again in the near future.


I just wanted to say a really big thank you to everyone at the Cholmondeley arms for a great weekend stay. We picked the pub completely out of the blue. We wanted to stay somewhere in Cheshire and we had no idea where to stay but we fancied a warm cosy pub with good food. We looked at various websites but we liked what we saw of the Cholmondeley Arms on the website. We were not disappointed. Great food (the best steak and kidney pie ever), great pub, friendly and helpful staff, great location particularly being so close to Chester and some great Sunday walks. Oh and a great gin selection.

We will definitely recommend the pub to others and we look forward to returning again.

Thank you and well done to everyone for providing first rate service.

Best wishes
