The Cholmondeley Arms

Most Read

The Cholmondeley Arms is an institution. This award winning country pub was originally an old Victorian school. Tall vaulted ceilings, an imposing log fire, intimately lit with candles and old relics from its school days, make this pub irresistible for festive celebration. One can sample one of 366 gins available at the bar, (one for every day of the year in a leap year).

The Cholmondeley is the Good Pub Guide's 'Gin Pub of the Year' and has been expert in all things G&T long before the 'Gin renaissance'. So the aperitif is clear….as for the food…. the menu reflects what is in season with a celebration of game at this time of the year.

There are festive specials such as Pan Fried Pheasant Breast, with pearl barley, game and chestnut stuffed cabbage and honey roasted parsnips or Root Vegetable, Cranberry and Chestnut Pie with red wine and Madeira sauce and buttered sprouts. The Cholmondeley also has six comfortable bedrooms in the old Headmaster's House adjacent to the pub. Never has going back to school been so good! Bookings are being taken for parties of eight and above.
