THREE Knutsford pubs have been named in the AA Pub Guide 2020, among the best pubs in the UK, chosen by AA's expert inspectors.

The Dog Inn in Knutsford, The Bull's Head in Mobberley and The Church Inn, also in Mobberley, were named as some of the best pubs in the UK.

Other Cheshire west and Chester pubs that made the list include the Fishpool Inn in Delamere and the Pheasant Inn at Burwardsley.

The Dog Inn in Knutsford was originally built in 1805 as three cottages, a grocer's shop, shoemaker and a farmstead before being combined in 1860.

It has since gone through numerous refurbishments and restoration up to today, with it now boasting a beer garden, seasonal dishes and fine wines and champagnes from around the world.

Home to the humble beginnings of the Umbro sportswear brand, The Bull's Head in Mobberley was originally owned by the parents of Harold Humphrey, co-founder of the now international sportswear brand started in the back room in 1922 as trading out of a cupboard.

Today the pub offers two car clubs, home cooked food, event nights and cask ales sourced from local breweries.

Just up the road from the Bull's Head is the Church Inn, of which records suggest it too was called the Bull's Head in 1753 when it was first rebuilt on the site of an old tavern, going through multiple names and owners over the next two and a half centuries before eventually becoming the Church Inn, a name it still keeps to this day as it hosts a four-mile walk around the village, private dining rooms and regular events.

All three of the Knutsford pubs featured in the guide are 'Pick of the Pubs', entries representing the best pubs chosen by AA's expert inspectors, editorial team and from reader suggestions.
