The Davenport Arms  

The Davenport Arms is a warm and inviting put serving good real and food. Seating is either at tables or sofas. There is plenty of exposed brickwork around the pub and wood burning stove.

The pub is also open all day during bank holidays.

The Davenport Arms dates back to the 18th Century, and was once part of the Capesthorne Estate. The building started its life as a farmhouse, the farmer starting to brew his own beer as a sideline until eventually it became the village hostelry.

In the living room above the pub is a small staged area, where the criminal trials took place and the gibbet is thought to have been suspended from a farm building opposite.

This room was also known as the sweating room where tenants from the Capesthorne estate would have paid their half yearly rent to the bailiffs, they were then allowed downstairs to drink as much as they pleased on that day…. at least there was a silver lining!
