Although fairly rural, the pub resides on the edge of the grounds of Dunham Massey Stately Home and Estate. The nearby villages, canal and stately home, all make the area a popular destination.

Ye Olde No 3 is a traditional pub offering an excellent reputation for its food and cask ale. Families are key customers especially during holidays and the summer season. There is a large beer garden to the rear of the pub which is located next to the canal. Going forward we want to develop the food and drink offer and promote the outdoor area to increase footfall. We need a new publican that is prepared to develop the different strands of the business, encouraging high standards.
