The Black Swan, situated in the pretty village of Hollins Green, has been at the heart of the community for 300 years. Midway between Manchester and Warrington, it’s just 13 miles from Manchester city centre and a welcome change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Recently refurbished, the pub and dining room also has 14 boutique rooms and makes an ideal choice for a quick getaway. Prices start from £65 and facilities include satellite TV and wifi. Food is served seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a range of classic dishes available based on local produce as well as a Gourmet Menu, daily specials, smaller portions for juniors or seniors and a Sunday menu with a choice of roasts. There’s a lovely terrace and children’s play area too.
