THE Fishpool Inn in Delamere has been nominated to win the prestigious title of ‘Pub of the Year’ in the 2019 Marketing Cheshire Awards.

At some point between now and the ceremony, which will be hosted in Knutsford on October 3, the popular pub will face a rigorous ‘mystery shopper’ exercise as part of the judging process, before the winner is announced on the night.

Located on the edge of the shady oasis that is the Delamere Forest, the cosy, characterful Fishpool Inn dates back to the 18th century. Serving freshly-prepared food made from the finest, locally sourced ingredients prepared in its cutting-edge open-fronted kitchen, The Fishpool is renowned as one of the county’s most popular gastropubs by regulars and first-time visitors alike.

“It reflects the hard work, commitment and ongoing performance of our talented team and we raise a collective glass to their continued efforts. We can’t wait for the ceremony in October.”
