About our venue

The Axe & Cleaver is situated in the attractive village of Dunham Massey which is mainly owned by the National Trust. The walled park has a 300 year old deer herd and there is a manor house which you can walk around. The pub dates back to 1880 when it was a house with a beer licence. Over the years it has been built on and the Coaching Inn-style out-buildings are listed. We re-opened in 2010 following a refurbishment with a bright new feel, decorated in cream's and brown's. Outside the garden has a rural, tranquil atmosphere. The Axe & Cleaver enjoys a great reputation near and far for great food & drink delivered with friendly service at a reasonable price. At the heart of our Chef & Brewer is the chef who delights in creating daily changing Specials using fresh ingredients. Selected for their seasonality, our ingredients really matter to us. Combined with care and freshly cooked for you, our dishes deliver the best of traditional pub food and more. Our Chef Recommends menu highlights delicious pub food created and cooked with real flair and talent; just perfect for the whole family to linger over and savour. To complement your meal there is an extensive choice of quality wines or real ales and other drinks are available at the bar. Unlike many beer gardens, you can hear the sounds of the countryside and birds, rare breeds of cattle and sheep are visible in the fields. Inside, there is character in abundance with reclaimed furniture and two open fires adding to its charm. Come and try this rather special venue soon and meet the friendly staff at the Axe & Cleaver.
