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.

We have just returned from the Bunbury Arms, originally I would have liked to order the gammon steak.But had sold out , so I chose liver! 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

This is a very pretty old country pub just a few minutes drive from the M53 and Cheshire Oaks outlet village. 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.

Went here with Mother and a friend and we had the chicken wrap, crab sandwich and salmon sandwich: all very tasty and came with chunky chips which was a nice surprise, and a bit of salad. Prompt, good service and friendly barman and we easily got a table.

Visited with the kids and had a friendly welcome. Good selection of pub food on menu including pastas, burgers, chicken and steak. Kids had a separate menu. Food was good quality. Kids chicken nuggets looked homemade. The burgers were thick and good quality meat. Bunbury Arms is a mixture of people eating and people there just for a drink. There... More

This is good pub grub with a wide ranging lunch menu that isn't obvious on its website. Fish and chips were excellent with a massive piece of battered cod, very freshly and nicely cooked. I had to leave some of the chips as I was too full and I don't recall this happening since the 1950s. Staff were very friendly... More
