The Davenport Arms dates back to the 18th Century, and was once part of the Capesthorne Estate. As hereditary foresters of the King, the Davenports were the game wardens on the King’s Hunting preserves and had the authorized power to put poachers to death without trial. Hence, the crest of the Davenport coat of arms originally was a serf’s head with a rope around its neck, signifying that the Davenports had the power to hang without appeal to the King.
Today its run as an independent Country pub and restaurant serving freshly prepared locally sourced food, with original ideas from the chefs. Real Ales, fine wines and a friendly atmosphere. Bar area for cosy nights around the log fire and separate informal restaurant if you prefer. Beer garden, patio and thatched summerhouse in the summer months. Childrens play area & plenty of parking.
