A 1930s roadhouse-style pub which I believe replaced an older pub in the village centre a few hundred yards to the south. Once a notably plush and successful food-oriented pub. The road it stands on used to serve as an informal bypass of Tarporley but lost its importance once the proper bypass was opened in the late 1980s. It is still open on the StreetView image taken in 2009.
