user reviews of Cheshire Cheese, Shavington

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Large roadside 1930s pub that was built in the anticipation of a housing estate that is only now arriving 80 years later ! Have been going here for years, and it is almost my local (10 mins walk). Always used to do an excellent Sunday lunch, but a few years ago it was renamed the “Coconut Grove carribean experience” – and when rapidly downhill. Has improved greatly since it escaped the clutches of a pubco, though it still mainly appeals to families with young children – with an outdoor play area.

On my latest visit there were 3 real ales on offer (though there have been more in the recent past), Caledonian Deuchars, Thwaites Original and Yorkshire Terrier. I opted for the latter which was entirely reasonable. The menu is extensive. The main section is basically pub grub, with the most interest items being a range of risottos. I chose the steak and ale pie from this, and it was very nice. The pie was meaty and juicy, and there were plenty of vegetables. The only drawback being that it came with mash rather than chips. Even so, I managed to eat most of it.

They also do lunchtime special on weekdays (a very restricted selection of the main menu), jacket potatoes, baguettes and sandwiches. There is a specials board, though I didn’t look at it closely. A Sunday roast is still offered. Unusually as well as the full roast (£8.99) there is also a “half roast” for £5.99. [ I noticed that neither had mashed potatoes ! ] The first Tuesday of the month is Curry night, and the last Tuesday is steak night.

There were some large screen TVs that were showing Formula 1 – thankfully silently. Also, at one end of the pub is a darts board and a pool table, and both were in use (at 1pm on a Sunday).

7/10 – I could well become a regular again.
