Walks from Cheshire’s best country pubs and inns

This lovingly designed and professionally photographed guidebook gives walkers the ten best short circular walks to some of Cheshire and Wirral’s finest country pubs and inns in a handy, pocketable format.

The high expectations of the well-heeled Cheshire set have forced the county’s hostelries to up their game, to the benefit of visitors and walkers alike.

That is not to say that they are inauthentic, overpriced gastropubs: most of the operations referenced within these pages manage the delicate balancing act of combining an unpretentious welcome while meeting modern expectations of food, drink and service.

Local breweries have also sprung up to serve these demanding palates, and Cheshire’s culinary treasures, including of course its famous cheese, enrich local menus.

Most of the buildings here are outwardly traditional, most built in the handsome local red sandstone, though some are in familiar Cheshire black and white. As with the landscape, the pubs of Cheshire are diverse: their situations range from windswept marsh to pretty village to isolated hilltop splendour, but all will satisfy the visitor in search of sustenance after a hearty stroll.

With clear information, an overview and introduction for each walk, expertly written numbered directions, Ordnance Survey maps, eye-grabbing panoramic photographs, and interpretation of points of interest along the way, these guides set a new standard in clarity, appeal and ease-of-use.
