On a cold winters day in December there is nothing like visiting a country pub for a warming meal or a festive tipple. Cheshire has a whole array of wonderful pubs just waiting to be discovered and after sampling quite a few we have come up with the very best cosy winter pubs in Cheshire.
First is The Fox & Hounds, Holmes Chapel Road, Cheshire, CW4 7LW, traditional country pub that serves hearty homemade food made from locally sourced ingredients and fine ales from the breweries of Cheshire. Their open log fires are perfect for curling up in front of with friends with a baileys Irish cream in hand.
