Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Bull is a charming, large detached building dating back to 1850’s, boasting original features with a modern décor. The pub is located on the main road through the rural hamlet of Shocklach on the outskirts of the affluent village of Malpas. Malpas is located right in the heart of the historic County of Cheshire and only a 20 minute drive to the beautiful City of Chester and 15 minutes drive to the Welsh town of Wrexham.

Pub Layout

On entrance through the porch you a greeted with a traditional but fresh and modern décor. The quirky patchwork floor of hand painted tiles is balanced with wooden flooring. The open fire creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. The bar is centrally located which offers all round vision and ease of service to all areas of the pub. The catering kitchen is accessed to the left of the bar and is well equipped and spacious. The dining areas are in two sections with the rear of the building offering an area for approximately 40 covers; this can easily be separated for functions or private dining. The conservatory and central area has around 40 covers, all the furnishings are quirky with a rustic but modern feel. The bar has its own snug area with approximately four bar tables although drinkers can overflow onto other tables on a busy night. Externally there is a grassed area with approximately eight benches, a large car park and an external drinking area lends itself to community fun days, BBQ and beer festivals.

The Bull trades as a fantastic food operation serving both the local community and providing a fantastic drive to destination food pub. The standard of food on offer is high end pub food, with the previous licensee having built up a fantastic reputation with good online presence and reviews. The bar is well stocked with a variety of cask ales, modern and traditional lager offerings and on trend with an impressive array of gins.

The Bull presents itself as a fantastic high end food operation.  I am looking for an experienced licensee who is aspirational and can drive this business to another level. You will need to have excellent retail standards with a strong online presence. A focus on events will boost the business further such as BBQs, family gatherings and christenings which will imbed the Bull at the heart of the local community.
