March 2020
The Chestnut is from the outside a very solid traditional looking pub and the first port of call for us alighting from the bus as we entered Radcliffe. The inside has had a large refurbishment and comparing it to older photos shows its been modernised a fair bit. The pub retains a lot of original features and an open wood fire but has lost some of its traditional country pub vibe and is now airier and more contemporary. The pub is in two main sections, the main bar with bench and table seating as well as a raised level back room that looked exclusively for diners as the pub is now quite gastro.
Beer wise I was rather impressed with the selection of well-chosen beers from a more unusual stable of breweries for an out of town village pub. On my visit I was presented with the choice of Marble Brewery Manchester Bitter (£3.70) Adnams Mosaic (£3.60) Woodfords Werry (£3.60) Adnams Broadside (£3.80) Why Valley Butty Bach (£3.70) Buxton More Top (£3.70) and Marble Lagonda IPA (3.90). We went for pints of the Buxton and Marble Bitters which were both competently kept and quite enjoyable if not spectacular. It was noticeable that the near hour we were there Saturday afternoon only two other customers ordered real ale which does make me wonder how they manage to get through such an extensive line-up.

Overall a really decent boozer and by far the best beer selection in the village I would come back here if ever visiting Radcliffe again a 7.5.

This pub was originally called the Cliffe Inn which was an Home Ales tied house when i first went in it,there were two real ales on the bar with the Home bitter being a very nice drink the other beer was Home mild.
The pub has now been opened out but still has different drinking areas and it is fairly smart inside and there is always a good choice of real ales on the bar which change quite often,on a more recent visit i had a drink of Nottingham Rock bitter and this was a very nice well kept pint.
This pub is well worth a visit if in the area.
