About our venue

The Blue Cap is situated on a main road about a mile from the rural village of Sandiway, four miles from Oulton Park Racecourse and twelve miles from Chester. Being on the old Chester to London coaching route, the pub was built in 1716 and originally known as Sandiway Head. The present name is after a very famous race hound. This lovely olde worlde venue has Cheshire windows and inside there are plenty of personal areas to enjoy candlelit dining with open fires to keep you warm in winter. Like all Chef & Brewer pubs we employ high quality Chefs who have superb kitchen facilities. The food can be chosen from a main menu or unique Specials from the chalk boards which allow our Chefs to show their flair! You will be served meals which have been prepared from the freshest of ingredients and cooked to order. To complement your meal there is an extensive choice of quality wines or a selection of real ales if you prefer. Come along soon to enjoy a delicious meal or a quality pint. You are guaranteed a friendly, warm welcome at Blue Cap.
