The Swan with Two Nicks
BritishThe Swan with two Nicks is a traditional village pub, nestled in a small Cheshire Village sandwiched between Dunham Massey Country Park which is a mecca for walkers. Home to Lord Stamford's estate with beautiful gardens, house and Deer Park to explore, and the Bridgewater Canal with colourful narrow boats and lovely canal side walks.
We welcome weary walkers and their Dogs (Bar area only) for a refreshing pint of Real ale from our selection of 7 cask ales sourced from National brewers and the Local Dunham Massey brewery as well as our own Swan Ale specially brewed by Coachhouse in Warrington, or a glass of quality wine from our handpicked wine list.
Food is served all day from 12.00pm and can be enjoyed both inside and outside on our large decked area with patio heaters for the cooler months.
In the winter months we have real log fires and candles lighting the tables for a cosy feel.
All our food is freshly prepared on the premises by our team of time served chefs, using locally sourced produce to produce the best food. We have our standard menu, which is enhanced by chef’s specials and a large selection of Fresh Fish which is delivered fresh to us six days a week to ensure we only serve the best. Please note: our menus are all samples and do change frequently to match the seasons.
This pub is truly what an English Country Pub should be; there aren’t many authentic pubs left. We do not have fruit machines, juke box or Televisions to spoil the art of conversation.
The pub is run by Ann Amphlett who has been running pubs for nearly 20 years in and around the Cheshire area and she has a team of friendly staff to ensure you have an enjoyable visit.
We have a Mercedes Car Club that meet here every 2nd Monday evening from 7pm and a TVR Club every 2nd Tuesday, again in the evening.
We do recommend that you book for weekends as we get very busy.

Fantastic food, fantastic service, really excellent beer. Great place to eat, drink & be merry.
On 3/12/2011 I said we would be back and we were last night with 15 people for a reunion meal with some again travelling from Carnforth, Congleton and Tytherington as well as ‘locals’.
Like last year, we all chose from the Christmas Party menu and were all impressed with the surroundings, pleasant and attentive staff and the quantity and quality of the meals. Not forgetting the excellent offerings from Dunham Massey Brewery available!
This really is a great place to visit and comes highly recommended.
Thank you very much and we will return next December!
Wow what a great pub. My family and i had a great meal last Sunday evening. We had been visiting friends in Irlam and they recommended your pub. From entering we were greeted with a big smile. Your Staff are second to none and your food was delicious. Thanks for a lovely evening. Hope to come again very soon. Sue
We enjoyed another fantastic meal at TSWTN on Valentine's Night. My steak was perfect whilst my beautiful wife Sharen was delighted with her very generous sized chicken fillet. Dunham Massey Brewery's Winter Warmer is currently on draft and had to be sampled once again - excellent! With chocolate roses for the ladies and fast but discreet attention from Ann, Tracy and the staff within the candlelit surroundings, TSWTN proved once again to be a great choice for our romantic evening. Thank you!
Had a really nice meal there, black pudding starter was great and the chicken curry hot and tasty. Michele had the sea bass and thoroughly enjoyed it. As a bonus the locally brewed beer is excellent, shame we were both driving!
I organized an annual reunion get together for 12 people at the Swan with Two Nicks for 2nd December 2011.
Even though the Christmas Party menu was not due to start until 5th December we were offered it as an alternative to the normal menu should we wish.
We all decided on the Party menu and were all very impressed with the service, quantity and quality of the meals we had, and the most pleasant surroundings. It is great when all the meals come together hot and on heated plates and the vegetables, of which there was an ample supply, came in tureens which were also hot.
Many so called ‘posh’ restaurants could learn a lot from a visit to the Swan and learn to serve quality food and vegetables in sufficient and satisfying quantity at a reasonable price.
Thank you all very much – we will be back!
On a busy Sunday afternoon, our party of 19 people, ranging in age from 7 to 86, were really looked after as we celebrated an 80th Birthday. Ann and the staff made it a very special occasion whilst, as ever, the delicious food and drink was a tasty hit with everyone. Everyone knows my fondness for the SWTN, and this happy visit showed why. Thank you!
This afternoon I visited The Swan with Two Nicks with my wife. We couldnt believe how busy it was for a late afternoon in October. After a short wait at the bar we were shown to a lovely cosy table for two. This place really is something special with the welcoming open fire and lovely candle lit tables. The menu is extensive and I chosepuke famous steak and ale pie. We waited slightly longer than we hoped, but the place was so busy in the bar and restaurant, you couldn't complain. The food was delicious, well worth the wait and the waitress was polite and friendly. The only down side to our meal was a large party of 15 or more adults and unruly children on a table near us, who seemed to think it was ok to throw food on the floor and made a real mess. Other than that a lovely meal in a lovely pub.
We used the Swan for my parents in laws 60th wedding anniversary and well the best food , best beer and to top it all best service , these guys couldn't have done any more they made us feel like we knew them they talked to us in a way that was great we enjoyed the night and so did the staff, thanks to Julia and Melissa and everyone else at the occassion 3/9/11 cheers guys a really top night Phil and Del Poyner had a great night ...thank you
Had a fantastic family lunch here, the food and service was great. Next time I'm back visiting my family, we will definitely eat here again.
Brilliant service, brilliant staff, and great food with a very homely atmosphere.
It is always a huge pleasure to call in TSWTN whether just for a drink or a meal. Well kept real ale, great wine and superb food - perfect! This country pub, currently with roaring log fires, is the epitome of a rural English hostelry.
The service is top class, too, with Ann, Carey, David and Tracey always efficient and friendly. Thank you TSWTN!
I took my (fussy) parents here for lunch and we had a lovely experience. The staff were friendly and very accommodating, despite being untra-busy they let us swap tables to allow more space for my baby's buggy. Atmosphere was cheerful, log fires and real ale (what more could you want?) The food too was good and hearty, just the ticket for a cold November day - especially the slow cooked lamb (melt in the mouth). Would go back again and again!
Eaten here twice in the past month and I have been very impressed with this pub. The first visit we had a 45 minute wait for our meals but were offered free deserts as an apology. Honestly, me and my partner didn't even notice the long wait as we were in such a relaxing environment. Gorgeous and large portions of food. More than enough choice on every menu. Friendly staff who seemed to be working hard. Thank you.
It's nice to find a country pub that isn't part of a national chain for once.Great homemade food,three empty plates.
a real country english pub
The best food I have had out for ages. Really decent menu with lots of fresh fish and specials. Salmon with goats cheers was fantastic, forgot to mention how good the Thai mussels were aswell. Not overly priced and good service throughout. Well done!
What a great find, spotted on this website and had since heard good things about it. So we went down with soem friends on Sunday, the place was a lot busier than I expected, nice warm fire on the go. Food was fanastic, one of the best Sunday roast around. Great stuff!
Two good friends from Manchester took me to this beautiful pub. I found the food absolutely delicious, I would recommend it to any foreigner who wants to try good English food in a wellcoming atmosphere.
Absolutley adore this place. Usually visit weekends late afternoon after walking Emily our Golden Retreiver. She is welcome in the bar area of the pub and is supplied with doggy biscuits and water. We of course enjoy the good food that they serve at the Swan,the log fires & the homely atmosphere..a perfect end to the day. Thank you.
Stumbled upon this delightful pub/restaurant on Sunday afternoon whilst out for a stroll. Good, tasty,traditional pub fayre. Very busy and some people did have to wait for a table, think we were lucky because there's only 2 of us! Definitely worth a try though without a doubt!
