The Three Greyhounds Inn
“A warm, relaxing and friendly pub” - AA Inspector
In a lovely rural setting, this 300-year-old former farmhouse is a warren of atmospheric rooms, with exposed beams, rugs on wooden floors, log fires in brick fireplaces, candles on old tables, and heaps of quirky touches. Go there for a choice of five local ales – a website snapshot shows Shropshire Gold, Merlin's Gold, Weetwood's Eastgate, Tatton's Best and Almighty Allostock, over 50 brandies (ask to see their Brandy Bible), and New and Old World wines. Turning to the food, there are nibbles like the little maple and mustard pork sausages with red onion marmalade, or warm Welsh rarebit pot with granary toast. For bigger appetites, look out for the seafood trawler board (enough for two, even three); chicken, ham, leek and tarragon pie; the ‘legendary’ steak, port and Stilton pie with chips; sweet potato, chickpea and spinach curry; or root vegetable and pearl barley hotpot. Desserts range from sticky toffee pudding to the Allostock banoffi mess – meringue, whipped Chantilly cream and sticky toffee sponge with toffee sauce and fresh banana. Do book for a memorable Sunday lunch. Dogs are welcome in the bar area and garden. Classic vehicle owners can join the car club.

About The area
Nestled between the Welsh hills and Derbyshire Peaks, the Cheshire plains make an ideal location to take things slow and mess around in boats. Cheshire has more than 200 miles (302 km) of man-made waterways, more than any other county in England. The Cheshire Ring is formed from the Rochdale, Ashton, Peak Forest, Macclesfield, Trent and Mersey and Bridgewater canals. This route takes you through a lot of Cheshire, and bits of other counties as well.
While exploring the county’s waterways, covering ground on foot or admiring the typical white plaster and black timber-frame houses, make sure to have a taste of Cheshire’s most famous produce. Although Cheddar has become Britain’s most popular cheese (accounting for over half of the cheese sales in the UK), it was once Cheshire cheese that was in every workman’s pocket back in the 18th century. Its moist, crumbly texture and slightly salty taste mean it goes well with fruit, peppers or tomatoes. As well as the usual white, there are also red and blue veined varieties.
