With an outstanding array of cafes and bars, there’s something to suit all tastes and pockets. Here’s just some of our favourite cafes and wine bars that we believe are keeping Tarporley firmly at the top of Cheshire’s property buyers list.

This quirky little wine bar on Tarporley High Street boasts a great selection of craft beers, as well as gins and wine. It’s become a great local hub for Tarporley residents to chill and socialise whilst enjoying great food and drink.

32 By the Hollies

Cheshire’s infamous Hollies farm shop, which has outlets in Stretton, Little Budworth and Cuddington is now firmly established on Tarporley’s High Street.  Primarily a café/restaurant, it also offers 5 boutique-style bedrooms located within a Grade ll-listed building that formerly served as a bank.  As you’d expect, given the farm shop connection, there’s plenty of seasonal and local produce on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a delicious roast on Sundays.

Latte Da

Latte Da is a small family run coffee shop and tea room, serving breakfast and lunch. It’s become a popular hangout for Tarporley Mums and tots, but it’s not surprising given their delicious array of homemade cakes.

Ginger & Pickles

Whether you’re looking for a hearty English breakfast or a celebratory afternoon tea, Ginger & Pickles offers a welcoming atmosphere for Tarporley residents. With an array of loose leaf teas and delicious homemade cakes, you can’t go really go wrong with a visit to this friendly Tarporley café.

The Coast, Tarporley

Inspired by the Italy’s Amalfi coast and hearty Mediterranean cuisine, The Coast offers the finest Mediterranean dishes; from aromatic ravioli and risotto dishes, to a succulent Sunday Roast.  Whilst this is not a wine bar per se, it’s position in the heart of Tarporley’s chic High Street makes it certainly worth a mention.

The Swan

The Swan has been welcoming guests through its doors for over 400 years, and was once a convenient resting place for those travelling the 200 miles from London to Chester. Today, it’s a welcoming bar, restaurant and 16-room hotel for visitors and residents alike.  It’s also winner of the Best Kept Village Award. Our regular Property Auctions are always held at The Swan and attendees can always stay for lunch or a drink to celebrate their auction bargains.
