Woodpecker Cookhouse + Pub restaurant in Northwich

Our team

Come and join us at The Woodpecker for great-value pub grub and service with a smile near Vale Royal Abbey. From mouth-watering mains to all-you-can-eat breakfasts, we’ve got everything you need when you’re dining out in Cheshire. Our friendly team are passionate about making sure you always have a great experience – and about supporting great causes too! Great Ormond Street Hospital has been our company’s charity partner since 2012, and our team, guests and suppliers have really gone above and beyond to support this incredible cause.  

Fun fact – our restaurant has gone by many names over the years, but it was originally the home of a notorious magistrate named Mrs Braddon, who (ironically) wasn’t a fan of public houses!

Whatever the occasion, we’re in a great spot when you’re looking for family restaurants near Cheshire. You’ll find The Woodpecker just off the A556, near Northwich attractions like the Lion Salt Works and Verdin Park.
