The Wheatsheaf Inn, The Green, Raby, Wirral L63 4JH.
The thatched, half-timbered Wheatsheaf Inn at The Green, Raby (just
down the road from Thornton Hough) dates back to 1611. It is
definately on the agenda and you won't be disappointed!
The Thatch as it is affectionately known, has
recently incorporated the old, redundant cowshed which has been
superbly converted into the eponimous Cowshed Restaurant.
Another, smaller dining area is in the conservatory, which links the
Cowshed to the Inn itself and opens out into the most beautiful beer
garden we have seen.
The old main part of the Inn (see photo) still retains its oak beams,
white walls and, of course, its thatched roof much beloved of artists,
photographers and historians. The huge timbered roof frames have
been carefully retained, as has much of the stonework, creating a
delightful friendly warm atmosphere.
The Cowshed offers bar snacks during the day and a full a la carte
restaurant service in the evening. A good selection of specialist
real ales are available at the Thatch to add to the charms of this
unique Inn hidden away in the beautiful countryside of central
