Ye Olde Ad­mi­ral Rod­ney

New Road, Prest­bury, SK10 4HP, robin­sons­brew­ery.


Venue: In a world of pop-ups and start-ups, in­no­va­tors and ar­ti­sans, all rustling up dishes at the van­guard of cool, there’s al­ways a place for the solid old-timers, the ‘proper’ pubs, the re­as­sur­ingly or­di­nary joints. You know the type: low ceil­ings, cosy nooks, pan­elled walls, drinkers propped up at the bar, and sun­trap ter­races clus­tered with wooden ta­bles and bloom­ing with hang­ing bas­kets. And that’s the setup at this beloved pub in Prest­bury. Lo­cals perch on barstools nurs­ing pints, news­pa­pers are strewn across low ta­bles to leaf through, and the end of sum­mer party is al­ways a good old knees-up with live mu­sic and pizza. Menu: It’s back-to-ba­sics classics at lunchtime, but they’re packed with flavour: chilli, pies, scampi, ap­ple pie with cus­tard. It’s not try­ing to be clever; it doesn’t want to be a pi­o­neer. It wants to fill and fat­ten you up and that han­ker­ing for top-notch fish and chips some­times just needs to be sated. Go for the cheery hot­pot too, with a bread roll to mop up the gravy.

Cost: Around £30 for lunch with drinks for two.
