Our menu is based around great ingredients all tied together by the chef’s in our kitchen. We have some favourites which are rooted in the foundations of the pub like the Cliffe Bank farm beef burger, fish and chips and our very own Hereford steaks. Otherwise we try to change things about as often as we can and we aim to have dishes on the menu for 4-6 weeks maximum. We have a vibrant specials board which changes with the chefs particular fancy as they bounce ideas around for the day. Head on over to the EAT section to get a flavour of what we do.
Our Favourite Tipples
We pride ourselves on providing five of the finest local cask ales and beers, so we are sure you’ll find one that fits. We’ve got a fantastic list of carefully-tasted wines… and if you’d like to try something extra special, cast your eye over our ‘Classic Wines’ list.
Cask Ales and Beers
Weetwood – Eastgate – 4.2%
Lovingly crafted Cheshire ale. A robust foretaste with a terrific blend of fruit and hops and a long smooth finish.
Salopian – Shropshire Gold – 3.8%
This is our easy-drinking number. Superbly balanced golden ale with a gentle hoppiness and a dry finish.
Paparuda Sauvignon Blanc, Estate Selection 2015 (Transylvania)
21st century wine making, from a culture that’s been making wine for over 3,000 years. Duty Sauvignon at its best.
Bundeena Bay Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough (New Zealand)
This family estate focuses on extending the trademark tropical fruits to an approachable, passionfruit-rich, zesty palate. Yummy.
Merry Mole Merlot (Moldova)
Merlot is a tricky little blighter, the classic styles are oakey and laced with chocolate, while the modern varieties are plummy and sweet. Old world versus new world in every sense. The Moldovan approach blends the best of both, the perfect crowd-pleasing wine.
Don Enrico Malbec, Mendoza (Argentina)
This Argentine Malbec flourishes embracing bold punchy red fruits interweaved with sweet oaky vanilla.
Above the pub (30 second walk, or 2 minute stagger) lay our five rooms. Just perfect for a countryside retreat, romantic getaway or flying visit. If the charms of Tilston were not enough then we lie surrounded by beautiful Cheshire countryside with walking routes a plenty. The historic city of Chester is less than a 30-minute drive, the famous Sandstone trail lies but a stroll away and we are just shy of the foothills of Snowdonia. Take a look at our Nearby page to view local attractions and things to do.
