Cheshire is a beautiful part of the country and what could be a better way of exploring it by taking your canine pal on a dog-friendly pub walk? In the following post we look at 5 of the best the area has to offer. Dog walking wellies are recommended.
Mobberley – The Church Inn
The walk in Mobberley stretches for four miles and is a circular affair that takes you through pristine farmland. Along the way, you pass interesting sites such as St Wilfrid’s Church, which has sections of it that date back as far as 1245.
The Church Inn is a good old fashioned country pub with 300 year’s worth of history and an interesting menu. Dogs are allowed in the garden, terrace, boot room and bar and they even sell dog biscuits and dog beer.
Frankby, Wirral – The Farmers Arms
The walk in Frankby begins in Royden Park and takes you four miles through the woodland areas of the park into the local farmland, offering some amazing views of what used to be RAF West Kirby. You will also see a memorial in the shape of a propeller and once you come back to the park you can head to The Farmers Arms. Funnily enough, the street this great little pub is on is called Hillbark Road.
Frodsham – The Ring O’Bells
The walk in Frodsham is a five mile trek that begins in Sandstone Trail, Bickerton and involves a number of ups and downs, though nothing too taxing. You benefit from brilliant views of Woodhouse and Overton Hill and if the weather is good, you can even see Snowdonia standing 60 miles in the distance. Even on a less clear day, you can see the spectacular Fiddlers Ferry Power Station.
The Ring O’Bells pub serves delicious food and they even give a free dog biscuit to visiting animals.
Bickerton – The Bickerton Poacher
This walk actually lies on the Sandstone Trail, which stretches for 34 miles between Frodsham and Whitchurch. One of the more local walks in this part of the region though is the enjoyable Rawhead Circular Walk which starts and finishes at the pub we are highlighting, The Bickerton Poacher.
There are plenty of interesting animals to see on this walk, such as squirrels and pheasant and the pub offers breakfast every day and a proper carvery on Sunday.
Whiteley Green – The Windmill
Rather than there being a set walk in Whiteley Green, you can choose the walk you want to take. The Windmill pub is situated a few yards away from both Middlewood Way and Macclesfield Canal, so you can decide which way you want to take a trek. The pub allows dogs in the bar and gardens and there is even a maze your pal can run around.
