Some judges’ comments
"What impressed me about the Hesketh Tavern was the overall experience, The externals say quality, inside the standards were superb but the overriding experience was the quality of the customer service, the team were attentive to the customers’ needs, friendly and business like. A truly great British Pub"
"I felt welcome and at home from the moment I stepped from my car in the car park, the whole place screamed excellence and the visit did not disappoint, the food was hot, tasty and extremely good value served by a knowledgeable, well trained team"
"On entering the Hesketh I was blown away by the superb standards, my first reaction being to check outside to make sure I was in the right pub and not a managed house. No it was the correct pub, better than a managed pub and my visit did not disappoint"

Since 1864, the Hesketh has welcomed a great local crowd and enjoys wonderful community rapport. With reclaimed oak panelling and stunning antique bric-a-brac sympathetic to its 1860’s Heritage, the pub maintains traditional charm but with a contemporary twist.
Built by the Hesketh family in the 1880's to replace the old village inn, 'The Horse & Jockey', the Tavern has always been fondly loved by locals and travellers alike.
Drinkers can relax in the cosy bar lounge in front of the open fire whilst diners have the choice of the original ‘Tavern’ area or the newly built and beautifully decorated ‘Barn’ with forty covers, a perfect space for functions.
The huge award-winning gardens provide seating for some two hundred people. Parents can keep a close eye whilst their children enjoy the enclosed play trail, running the full length of the beer garden.
