A little pub history
Built on a site of much historic importance, The Cheshire Cat is said to sit on the grounds of a battle fought between the Cavaliers and Roundheads. Originally constructed in 1801, the building was seconded by the government as an administration office in World War II, it was left derelict until 1970 before being beautifully restored to reflect its long and interesting heritage.
