The Pheasant Inn enjoys a beautiful rural setting with extensive views across the Cheshire plain to the Welsh hills. Chester is a mere 15 minutes away by
car, and both Liverpool and Manchester are in 40 minutes’ reach by car. Our inn is the ideal base from which to explore the many delights that Cheshire has to offer, and we have put together a small selection of what we consider to be the most tempting.


The Pheasant Inn is in the middle of one of the biggest walks in Cheshire, the 34-mile Sandstone Trail. If you require any further information on this walk please ask at the bar. If 34 miles sounds a bit much for a relaxing stroll or a quick dog walk, then you will find a leaflet of three shorter circular walks through our
surrounding area.
