Aqualung . left this review about The Wickstead Arms

As noted below this is a genuine two room pub. I went in what looked like a public bar with a big TV that was silent and a 60s music track playing. I only saw two hand pumps which had Oakham Citra and Salopian Shropshire Gold. There were more hand pumps in the bar opposite but I went for the Oakham Citra (£3.45) which was excellent. This looked like it might be one of the better options in Nantwich provided there is no sport showing.

A recently refurbished well run pub. It has two rooms with three handpumps on each. The "Tiled Glass" windows help to give it the old Nantwich look. A pub I will certainly return to when I am in Nantwich again

This pub retains a two room format but there is little distinction between rooms apart from the room on the right on entering having a dartboard in a case and a telly on the wall. Both rooms have modern distressed flagstones around the bar area with the remaining area of the left side being carpeted whereas the rest of the other room is boarded. Conventional seating, some bookcase patterned wallpaper, a side wall has a large map and write up about the Battle of Nantwich during the Civil War. Otherwise old photos as usual, the darts and telly side had a log burner.
Three handpumps each side and you need to wander through to check them all, only three on in total Thursday afternoon, Salopian Oracle and Shropshire Gold plus Stonehouse Brewery Sunlander. The Oracle was in great shape (£3.10). A board lists possible future ale choices and invites votes.
Food served, the menus were away mid afternoon but I could see that they do Pieminister pies. A friendly pub, service was chatty and later on, while some Motown track played a customer at the bar with his mates asked for it to be turned up a bit but took the trouble to turn and ask me if I minded! You wouldn't get that courtesy in too many places these days.
A very nice pub indeed, I felt at home in here, if all the pumps were on you could easily lose a lot of time here.
