Welcome to the
You will find the Butley Ash in Prestbury in the heartland of Cheshire’s Golden Triangle, nicknamed so for its star residents. Alongside the attractive villages of Wilmslow and Alderley Edge, Prestbury is a magnet for celebrities, including A-list footballers like Wayne Rooney. The area is regularly name-checked among the most sought-after places to live outside of the capital, and Prestbury itself is home to the most expensive street in the north of England, where the average house price runs into the millions. The town centre is a designated conservation area, dominated by a Grade I-listed church and lined with a mix of modern shops, restaurants and buildings from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. In contrast to the modern-day mansions nearby, the Butley Ash is a charming old building that is dof friendly with a lovely rural setting. The only pub for miles, it is surrounded on all sides by panoramic views of rolling Cheshire countryside. The exact age of the pub is up for debate, but the old wooden beams suggest its former life as a coaching inn could stretch back to when London Road was laid in the early 1800s. The village of Butley itself is even older. The hamlet was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, when it was valued at two shillings. Despite the pub’s rural location, the popularity of The Butley Ash sees guests return from as far afield as Stockport, eight miles away, and Manchester, which is 10, to enjoy the welcoming atmosphere and hearty pub food. There is even greater demand for this place in the summer, when guests descend on the large beer garden and patio for al fresco lunches and dinners.
