The Black Swan, Lower Withington, Cheshire

Char-grilled chicken burger, cajun fries and super-slaw.


So my first blog post on my new WordPress blog, scary, but exciting, here it goes…

I am opting to keep this first post simple, and thought it might be nice to share with you the scrumptious food I ate last night. I’d had a bad day at the office, so my boyfriend decided we would dine-out and took me to The Black Swan Inn, a quirky Cheshire pub just 15 minutes away from Alderley Edge. They have some great dishes on the menu (link here:, which is pretty refreshing compared to other pubs in the area, and it’s definitely nice to see something a ‘bit different’.

The food is tasty, simple and well-executed (it unfortunately took a fair while to arrive… but we didn’t get to the ‘hangry’ stage, so will let them off). The place is beautifully decorated and has a wonderful outside area with a wood fired oven, that is used on sunny weekends – a shame they are very few and far between now in this neck of the woods!

Took an aerial snap of my Char-grilled Chicken burger from the Special’s Board, served with spicy fries, homemade coleslaw and rather huge onion rings…. #yum
