Property Address



Lawton Arms

Pub location on map


The Lawton Arms is an attractive traditional community pub with a homemade food offering, superbly situated in a prominent road side position on the busy A50 between Alsager and Kidsgrove. The pub is also close to the M6 making it ideal for a motorway stop off. The Lawton has a great reputation for food and beer with lunch times being mainly about food with a broader friendly local community drinking trade in the evenings. 

*Planned refurbishment this year

Trading Accommodation

Externally there is a spacious car park behind the pub with an extensive lawned beer garden including outside seating and a large children’s play area beyond. A covered smoking shelter is conveniently located close to the rear entrance of the pub. Internally the pub has a traditional feel with a small bar servicing the separate lounge and vault, as well as a cosy dining room. This allows the Lawton Arms to offer a wide range of environments to a variety of customers at the same time.
