We are exceptionally proud to say one of the biggest parts of our investment in the ‘new’ Cholmondeley Arms has been the kitchen. As you can see from the photos the floors, the walls, the ceilings, all the equipment including our new ‘walk in’ fridge, all the electrics, in fact everything you can think of has been completely re-newed.
It is vital to us that our kitchen reflects our passion for great food, using fresh produce from local suppliers where we can while maintaining the highest standards possible.
Here is our opening line-up on our ‘famous five pumps’. Teachers Tipple is our seasonal ‘session’ house beer brewed by Weetwood brewery in Tarporley. It is a really good hoppy beer with fruit flavours. Then there is our ‘centre piece’ Ale, the Cholmondeley Best Bitter again, brewed at Weetwood.
On the right as you look is our first guest ale, the ‘bitter mans’ bitter from Cheshire’s newest brewery ‘Mobberley Fine Ales’, Hedge Hopper is an excellent brew and reflects our close relationship with the village of Mobberley where we have our first Cheshire based pub the Bulls Head the winner of the ‘Best Turnaround Pub’ in the Northwest 2011.
Then we have two further guest ales. Wincle Waller from Wincle Brewery near Macclesfield and of course the famous ‘Shropshire Gold’ from Salopian.
The Cholmondeley Arms is committed to local micro-breweries from within a 35 mile radius and we will only stock ales from Cheshire and Shropshire..
