Beaujolais Day At The Bull

A Very Warm Welcome to The Bull at Shocklach

The Bull is a country pub dating back to 1850 with a quirky, gorgeous patchwork floor of hand painted tiles. We are a family friendly pub and restaurant set in the rural hamlet of Shocklach a stone’s throw from the village of Malpas, located right in the heart of historic Cheshire and yet just 20 minutes drive south of Chester and north of Wrexham.

If you appreciate freshly prepared hearty meals, fine wines, ales, good old fashioned manners and polite service then you will enjoy a visit to The Bull. Whatever the weather Ashley, Joanne and their friendly team promise you a warm welcome.

Please familiarise yourself with our Menu, News, up and coming Events and see our photo gallery below.
