Good Beer Guide recognises our commitment to local Cheshire beers!!!

We are so proud to announce that after only 15 months of trading , the ‘new’ Bulls Head team has been recognised for our commitment to only serving local micro-brewery ale from Cheshire Breweries within a 30 mile radius.

Our intention was always to support local businesses whether it be Ale or food.

To be acknowledged by the Good Beer guide this early in our journey with the Bulls Head is hugely satisfying.

However success is a journey not a destination and so we must work even harder in the future to ensure consistency over many years to come.

Thank you to all our loyal customers for enjoying our ale with us and here’s to many more pints being enjoyed in the future.

The Bulls Head started its life in the 18th century as three cottages for the village’s workers. Today it stands a popular hostelry, owned by Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin and managed by Shane and Jenny Bushell who took over in May 2010. The team took on an impressive refurbishment job which is now complete, encompassing elements of the buildings original charm, modern facilities and contemporary styling.

Open all day every day, five real ales are on offer at any time with Mobberley Wobbly Ale and the Bull’s Head Bitter being the regular brews. An excellent range of guest ales are on rotation throughout the week, selected from local breweries within a thirty mile radius for that local taste. The Inn also stocks a handsome array of ‘posh’ ports, over fifty whiskies and wines to suit any occasion. Food is available all day, every day and includes a delicious selection of freshly prepared ‘Traditional sharing pub plates’, 28 day aged steaks and ‘Bulls Head favourites’ such as their legendary Steak and Wobbly Ale Pie, Cheshire Smokehouse Grandad Sausages with Mash or Local Ale Battered Haddock.

Every other Sunday afternoon you can enjoy ‘laid back’ jazz from their resident local musicians while on alternate Thursday evenings the ‘Lord Ted’ quiz allows guests to exercise their general knowledge skills. In the summer months the inn’s garden and terrace can be taken full advantage of for ‘al fresco’ dining and a game of boules perhaps!
