The Cholmondeley Arms


The Cholmondeley Arms is a rural pub nestled on the Cholmondeley Estate in Cheshire.

Known as the ‘Chum’ to locals, the pub offers visitors a unique experience with its traditional ‘old’ school features and furniture, excellent food and incredible Gin collection. The pub also has the adjacent ‘Headmaster’s house’ which offers six comfortable en-suite bedrooms.

The pub boasts more than 366 different gins from around the world, with all the bar team knowledgeable on the subject and capable of mixing and matching the various garnishes to suit each gin’s botanicals. Every July the Cholmondeley Arms hosts its annual Gin-fest, which attracts people from further afield to enjoy music, good food and all things gin.

From the beginning, the pub has aimed to be ‘local and proud’ and has gone through special efforts to source local produce from micro brewers for their five pumps to great game for the menu from the local shoots.

The Cholmondeley Arms has achieved many accolades over the years including ‘Best Pub in Cheshire’ at the Pub and Bar Magazine Awards 2017, it was Cheshire’s Tourist Pub of the Year as well as the Country Alliances Local Food Pub of the Year and it has been featured twice in the Telegraph as a ‘Top Ten Place To Stay with Your Pet Dog’ and in the ‘UK’s Top Ten Hotels to take your pet dog’.
