Every now and again you come across somewhere in your vicinity that you didn’t even know existed. Just such a thing happened today when my bestie Linda and I had coffee and cake at the Wild Goose in Dodleston. We had no idea it was here! Hidden in the Cheshire countryside, but only a few miles from home.
To be fair, it’s only been open for a few weeks. It’s on the site of Chester Lakes, a fishery which has been popular with anglers for a long time.
Anyway, I had won a Facebook competition for coffee and cake, so it was the perfect excuse to try it out (and follow it up with a visit to the nearby Grosvenor Garden Centre).
The décor is very country chic, with a quirky bar made up of wine crates.
Outside there are the cutest little huts overlooking the lake which would be perfect on a summer night. Pity it was pouring with rain!
The menu looks good enough to tempt us back for dinner too! PS I can recommend the chocolate cake!
