Olde English pub tucked away away from the hustle and bustle of Cheshire oaks. Original features and very cosy. Lunch was very filling and beer nice and cold. Sat in tidy and clean beer garden ideal to meet with friends or couples wanting to get away from mainstream franchise meal/drinks outlets. Would visit again.

Second visit to this pub. 1st visit was a little disappointing so thought we'd give it another shot because the venue itself is so appealing. We asked about gluten free options on arrival... but staff had no knowledge. We were assured that the chips were gluten free... but they clearly had a 'coating' when they arrived. We weren't filled with... More

After a long gym session looked for somewhere for a nice pint and a chill. This was a god send , lovely atmosphere and excellent beer selection. Only stopped for a snack but will be back for a meal very soon. Overall a nice little country pub as you would expect a country pub to be.

After 5-6years between visits, we returned here after at the local Caravan Club Site. The pub is within spitting distance of the large retail shopping village Cheshire Oaks. Notably although the area is littered with other pubs and eating establishments, they are all national corpororatly owned or franchised units, and mostly somewhat serve what I call ding-ding pre-prepared food, done...

Excited to have a nice Sunday meal in the Bunbury. I've drank here before and the pub has loads of character. However the food was poor. I had burger and chips, the former was rock hard tasteless pellets and the burger was of lower quality than one you get on a Chester race day. It was very sad to think... More

Great family atmosphere at the bunbury arms. Sunday lunch with friends and dog in the bar all afternoon - felt well looked after, great food. Starters epic. Delay in serving food but worth the wait. Recommended.

What I got I would describe as mash potatoes and lots of peas, and three small pieces of liver one piece was about the size of my thumb , and then a second piece... More

It has a lovely ambience and serves an extensive food choice and a good range of and beers. We visited in a large party and the food was good as was the service. The place is old worldly and...

Often pop into the Bunbury arms for lunch or a evening meal with my wife and we have never been disappointed with the food,service or staff. It's a gem of a pub and long may it last as village pubs are fast becoming a distance memory. Sitting outside during the warmer months having a pint is what life's all about.
