Bleeding Wolf121 Congleton Road North
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Large, thatched roadhouse built 1936 for Robinson's, designed by J. H. Walters. [Other designs by Walters are the Legs of Man at Arclid and the Church House Inn in Buglawton-both Robinson's]. The pub's unusual name is said to derive from a legend where Adam de Lauton rescued either King John, or alternately the Earl of Chester, from attack by a wounded wolf and in gratitude was granted a thousand acres stretching from Sandbach to Congleton, or as much land as he could walk over in a week. Classic inter-war "Brewers Tudor" interior.
