The Cheshire Tap was voted the Most Improved pub having transformed the former Classroom on Railway Street into a cool bar which has been a popular addition to the town's beer scene since opening in December 2015. While the site's previous incarnation was popular, it offered little to attract fans of quality beers whereas The Cheshire Tap features four real ales and a range of "craft" keg and bottles.
In keeping with its name, the bar regularly features Cheshire based breweries - on presentation evening two beers from Poynton Brewery were on offer - the flagship Vulcan Best Bitter and the newly launch Kiwi - a New Zealand hopped pale ale. The other two pumps featured Black Shire Stout from Tweed and Robinson's Dizzy Blonde. Pictured are general manager Martin, bar manager James with branch chair John O'Donnell
