M6

It’s hard to believe but this 17th-century coaching inn was a crumbling relic as little as four years ago. Seeing its potential, owner Dominic Heywood has created a wonderfully period hotel-restaurant enlivened with a mane of wisteria and junkyard finds. Panelled walls, beamed ceilings and flagstone floors rub shoulders with a bar made from a French altar, polo mallets and gilt mirrors; perfect for this well-heeled corner of Cheshire. Sofas are arranged invitingly around fires and corners, while the spacious dining room is decorated in dark tones and dimmed lights, balanced by a luminous conservatory beyond.

Full breakfasts are available from 7.30am, as well as lighter bites, including toasted crumpets and porridge. Nibble on glazed chipolatas and homemade dips between meals or tuck into a locally sourced lunch, perhaps Shropshire blue salad, club sandwich or braised beef pie. Dinner is a variation on the same theme, followed by sweet treats, such as pear and almond tatin.
