We are so excited to welcome you back!!
Firstly we want everyone to feel safe and comfortable when visiting the Pickering arms, so we have put a few procedures in place to ensure this happens.
We now have 1 entrance and 1 exit, the entrance is located on the main road and the exit is located in the beer garden, both have sanitizer stations.
Due to the size of our rest rooms, we will be operating a 1 in 1 out system.
So that we can manage the amount of people entering the pub in a safe manner, reservations are now require if you are dining or just having a drink, you can call the pub or reserve your table on line, please state if you are just drinking or if you are bringing your fury friend so we can allocate the right table.
No reservation is required for outside tables. We have a large covered area, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee cover for everyone if the heavens open. Waitress service will be available at our quieter times in the garden on a pay as you go basis, we have also put in a step up, step back system, step up to order your drinks and step back whilst we prepare your drinks, we do not allow any drinking or standing at the bar at this time.
All our tables will be placed to meet the government guide lines, so we kindly ask for tables not to be moved.
Our reduced menus are single use and can also be used to order you meal and first drink; there is also a data capture form at the bottom which we require everyone to complete for track and trace.
Once your menu is complete, it can be left at the edge of your table and a member of staff will process your order, there will be clean, sanitized pens on your table on arrival, or you can bring your own.
Whilst we are doing everything we can to keep you all safe, we do ask that you follow the government guideline and keep your distance to the best of your ability.
We have a very strict cleaning schedule and our staff will be ensuring that the cleaning check sheets are completed throughout the day to a very high standard.
Jim and I and all the staff look forward to welcoming you back
Situated in the idyllic village of Thelwall, The Pickering Arms dates from 16th century. The interior comes laden with period charm - warm, cosy colours, low beams, exposed stone walls and open fires. Our menu features well loved classic dishes, along with exciting local and seasonal specials. Our Traditional Sunday Roast and homemade pies are legendary!
We stock a wide range of cask ales, wines at sensible prices and premium spirits.
An extensive garden terrace, with a' jumbrella' is perfect for relaxing, having a party or simply enjoying 'al fresco' drinking and dining. Something for everyone!!
The Pick (as it is locally known) has built up a superb reputation for top quality food, both locally sourced and cooked from fresh. An ever changing 'Specials Board' means our customers are constantly inspired and never disappointed.
Of equal reputation is our range of carefully kept traditional hand-pulled ales, wines to satisfy the most discerning palate, not to mention our fabulous range of Premium Spirits and of course Fever Tree tonics.
Not only is The Pickering a 'locals' local - hikers and dogs are welcome in the bar area. An ample car park ensures that parking is not a problem and is therefore a perfect as a 'destination' venue.
