The Calveley Arms - a Traditional 1600's Coaching Inn with pleasant surroundings, and great atmosphere All food locally sourced and produced for your delight. Runner-up in the Cheshire Life "Dining Pub of the Year, 2000-2001" and a constant presence in The Good Pub Guide for the last 7 years, among other recommendations and awards. The Calveley Arms has become one of the region's most popular eating places. It stands in the pleasant village of Handley, just off the A41 that links Chester and Whitchurch, only a 10-minute drive from Chester. History: First licensed in 1636 and still retaining all its historic charm, the inn's smart black and white frontage promises much and the interior is as traditional as could be with a mass of wall and ceiling timbers, and a collection of jugs and pots, pictures, prints and ornaments. It all provides an atmospheric setting in which to enjoy the outstanding cooking prepared by speciality Chefs under the supervision of the owners. The Bar: The food is a mega-attraction here, served every lunchtime and evening, and the 70 covers are soon taken so booking is always a good idea (01829 770619). The daily-changing specials menu supplements a printed menu of unusual range and interest with fresh fish dishes something of a speciality of the house being fresh Lobster. Typical items on the main menu include Hot Avocado and Stilton (one of the best-selling dishes), Tarte Fambée like they make it in Alsace, Madras-style curry, and when in season local Pheasant, Venison and all time favourite Lamb Cutlets. Sunday Lunch: Sunday Lunch is a real must, relax and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the specially prepared Roast Rib or Roast Sirloin of Beef direct from the kitchen to your table. We are famous for our Sunday Roasts, why not try for yourself!! Four real ales Decaurs Caledonia and three guest brews ( which constantly change for variety) are popular orders at the bar and can be enjoyed in front of the open fire(weather permitting), also Leffe which compliments the food and deserts along with other very good recommended Belgian Beers. In fine weather, customers can enjoy their pint while watching or playing a game of Boules in the rustic beer garden at the rear of the inn. Much use is made of the Marquee in the Garden for Alfresco dining . Barbecues also take place here and also occasional al fresco music. Happy hour is 6-7pm, Monday to Friday.
