I went here last year and it was different to how I remembered it. The young chap behind the bar seemed to drink more than he served, and was more concerend with having a good time that making sure the customers were looked after. But all in all I had an OK meal and my wife was happy.

I called in for some early evening sustenance on a jaunt through Cheshire. Steak sandwich was lovely - nice and tender and medium rare with properly cooked onions. Fries and salad were nothing special but they weren't the point of the meal. And a nice glass of Timothy Taylor.

Such a friendly and obliging place, the staff couldn't be more helpful. The food is great and excellent value - just standard pub grub but done well. Home-made pies recommended. I don't understand other reviewers saying it is expensive - many of the mains are under £9, compared to £11-13 at other pubs in the area. Not much to look... More

The staff were friendly and attentive, and the place had a lovely warm atmosphere. The food was delicious and plentiful, and it was clear that fresh ingredients had been used. I shall certainly be...

I ordered the steak and it was cooked exactly the way i requested. It came with chunky chips, onion rings, grilled tomato and a side of vegetables. Everything was perfect and... More

Having celebrated our wedding on Saturday 19th October in Tilston, both Stephen and I planned to have a relaxing Sunday after the wedding and what better way to do this than go to our local village pub for some good pub grub? We invited a few of our guests from the wedding to come along for a pint and some... More

Came across this lovely traditional pub and restaurant by luck. Very friendly and welcoming with great menu. Next time we will have the cream tea to sustain us on our yomp! will definately return to the Carden Arms and very pretty Cheshire village of Tilston. Thank you for one of the nicest pit stops we have enjoyed!
