Large and historic old pub with lots of aged woodwork, rather opened out but retaining some separate areas including an interesting glass-walled meeting room. Very quiet on a midweek afternoon but still offering food. Beers were from a mixture of local and national breweries: I tried Mobberley Concept which was very pleasant (Cask Marque listing). Sadly the eponymous bowling green lies under the rear extension.

Certainly the oldest surviving pub in Northwich dating from the 17th century the black and white timbered construction are consistent with Cheshire buildings of age. Multiple rooms inside, the front room is flagged with the bar ahead, wood panelling, wood burning stove, TV showing rugby, through a side corridor you pass a snug with wall mounted maps including the Cheshire Ring canal, good fire going in here too.
Beyond is a much bigger room, split again with a rear dining area and another side bit with garden access. This pub looks to have been added to over the years and is now huge but in keeping with the separate areas maintained.
The beer pumps are split between the front and rear main bars, I encountered Canterbury Green Stout, Tatton Brewery Gold and Merlin Castle Black. Note the pumps are split between rooms.
A lovely convivial pub, as far as I can make out and easily the best on offer in Northwich.
