Gardeners Arms is a popular hub of activity in the village of Timperley. This bright and vibrant venue is very family-friendly and draws in a cheery crowd from the surrounding area. The menus boast a delicious selection of hearty pub classics. Perhaps start by tucking into the goat’s cheese bruschetta, with tomato and basil toppings piled high. For something a little richer, spread smooth homemade chicken liver pâté and wild mushroom butter on sourdough crostini. The main menu is populated with beloved pub favourites like homemade chilli and beer-battered fish and chips. Regular changes to the specials board mean that there’s always something new to try. The pudding menu is heaven for those with a sweet-tooth, but the Ruffled by Cranberry and Raspberry stands out from the crowd: a confection of chocolate, pastry and mousse sprinkled with sugar-dusted cranberries and raspberries.
With a smartphone quiz night every Wednesday, live music performances and barbecues in fine weather, there’s always something going on. Televisions have access to Sky Sports, ESPN and BT Sport, making Gardeners Arms a popular place for groups to gather for big sporting events, which contributes to the lively atmosphere. If, however, you’re just in the market for a pint of cask ale and a game of darts you’ll find yourself in good company at Gardeners Arms.
