The Bunbury Arms

Eating Out

The Bunbury Arms at Stoak, Chester enjoys an ideal location - just off both the M56 and the M53 and a mile from the Cheshire Oaks shopping centre at Ellesmere Port. It has its origins back in the seventeenth century as a rustic ale house serving the local farming community and over the years it has grown gradually, but always sympathetically, into the cosy and welcoming place it is today. Here at The Bunbury we pride ourselves on our selection of the finest cask ales, popular favourites to feature on the Bunbury hand pumps include Doom Bar from Cornish brewery Sharp's, locally brewed Spitting Feathers from Waverton and the ever popular Joseph Holt's. Set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside, Summer beer garden, roaring Winter coal fire (and The Bunbury family ducks and chickens!) makes The Bunbury Arms as much the hidden gem as it ever was.


“ If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world” J.R.R Tolkien…..
Built in 1844 by Sir Henry Edward Banbury, this quintessential British pub is set in the village of Stoak, right at the heart of the beautiful Cheshire countryside, near the silky blue Shropshire Canal, and from cosy lattice windows, warm and inviting sights and sounds welcome and draw you in. The delicious aromas weave a spell and if you weren’t hungry when you arrived, you soon will be. The atmosphere is at once friendly and relaxed, the surroundings aesthetically delightful, the food delicious, served promptly and piping hot to your table with a lovely smile, all are welcome from tiny tots to older or less mobile diners, the extensive beer garden is both tranquil and picturesque. A perfect place to chill and enjoy.
