New pub and restaurant coming to Alderley Park

Churchill Tree

A new 6,000 sq ft pub and restaurant is set to open at Alderley Park this autumn, located in the grade II-listed Tenant's Hall.

The Churchill Tree is the latest pub and restaurant from Cheshire Pub Co - the group behind The Ship Inn in Styal, and The Frozen Mop in Mobberley. It will include a 160-cover restaurant with outside beer garden and offer pub meals made fromBritish produce and a broad selection of drinks, including cask ales from local breweries.

The team behind Cheshire Pub Co, explain: "It's all about creating a proper pub and keeping things simple, yet sophisticated. Customers can cosy up by our open fires in the winter and soak up the sun whilst dining al fresco in the warmer months. Our new venue at Alderley Park will give people a safe and happy place to visit during these unusual times, and provide residents and the business community with a local pub which feels like a home from home.

"The setting at Alderley Park is beautiful and we feel very fortunate to be a part of the community. We can't wait to open our doors and get to know our new customers."

Dr Kath Mackay, managing director - Alderley Park, added: "Alderley Park is a fantastic place to live and work and we can't wait for The Churchill Tree to open this autumn. The team behind the new pub and restaurant is renowned for creating venues that focus on quality and comfort, and The Churchill Tree will be a great spot for people to grab a bite to eat or drink, at lunch or after work. I've no doubt it will prove very popular and will be enjoyed by both the businesses based here at the Park and the local community alike."

The Churchill Tree is named after the sweet chestnut tree planted by a young Winston Churchill in Alderley Park in the early 20th century.

Times change; about a mile away a genuine "proper pub" which has been in business for centuries stands boarded up and decaying.
Presumably they didn't forsee the requirement for McLaren and Lamborghini parking on the front row?

The case of 'The Wizard' is a bit of a mystery and was reported on this website at the time. If I remember correctly, the tenants said they wanted to stay but couldn't because the owners (the National Trust) would not renew the lease. The NT were saying they were sorry the tenants were not renewing, while not indicating whether the tenancy might be available to anyone else.

In view of these conflicting reports, it would be interesting to know just why this long standing pub closed its doors.
