A Samuel Smith’s pub set back from the road in an attractive village close to the National Trust’s Dunham Massey estate. Despite the leafy setting, it’s surprisingly down to earth, with a strong core of regulars mingling with visitors eating meals. Possibly Sams’ famously low beer prices help keep its feet on the ground. The interior has a firmly traditional feel featuring much dark wood, with a variety of cosy areas rambling around the central bar. The pub is the building by the red car, not the one right behind the sign.
