Oswalds is above the Helter Skelter Bar. The same great food (and drink) is served in both, but upstairs in Oswalds is obviously much quieter, as the bar can get very busy. Large menu choice. Widest range of drinks in this area. Best booking a...More

I love 'the Skelter". Simply because of the ever changing amount of guest beers. There's so much to choose from. Always a good and pleasant atmosphere.

Formerly known as The Drovers, The Gaping Gander, The Rowlands and the plain old Helter Skelter, Oswalds@Helter Skelter is a good old-fashioned pub serving real beer and real food. The first floor of this Cheshire restaurant serves a mix of traditional and contemporary cuisine, including meals such as black pudding with potato rosti, bacon and a tomato sauce, swordfish with chilli prawns, chorizo and wild rice and duck with a plum and ginger sauce, while the 'Home Comforts' section offers dishes like a cask ale pie served with chips and peas. A pub that serves good food and a good pint - It doesn't get much better than that!
