The Bickerton Poacher

It's another review, but this time it's not gadgets but food.

At the weekend, we went to visit family who decided to pitch their tent for the night, next to a pub. Now, let's be honest, what could be better than a beautiful, sunny, afternoon, in a field, with a nice cold beer?

Well, that didn't happen! The beer had to wait until later.

I digress! The Bickerton Arms is situated in Bulkeley, between Wrexham and Nantwich. It's a delightful place which caters for parties of all sizes. They offer bed and breakfast accommodation which, although I only saw a photo, based on my experience, I think would be quite nice.

The pub also owns the adjoining field, on which they are happy to accommodate tents, caravans and motor-homes. Camping facilities aren't bad, including showers (although only a couple) drinking water tap, on-site shop (in the pub!) Childrens play area and much more.
At a very reasonable £8 / night for a 5-man tent, you really can't go wrong.

The restaurant is "designed for those who want to spoil themselves." It's also possible to dine in the bar area or lounge. Whether for a romantic meal, family day out or a group of friends 'slobbing out', this is a terrific venue.

In the evening, we commandeered a couple of tables in the pub garden and enjoyed a really lovely meal. The food was fresh and beautifully served. A childrens menu is also available.

It's just over a one hour drive from Manchester, and if you're looking for good food in a friendly atmosphere, then you should give this place a try.

It has to be said that I liked this place, and whilst there are plenty of other good eateries, closer to home, I felt I had to write about it.
