Best Dining Pubs within an hour’s drive of Mcr

My wife and I often enjoy a drive out at the weekend to find a good pub with decent grub (and, in winter, a cosy fire). This is an on-going list of links to my posts of places we have visited which are reputed to be the “best ‘gastropubs’ within an hour’s drive of Manchester.”

Many featured are listed in the likes of the Michelin Guide, Good Food Guide, The Good Pub Guide and alike. They are not ranked in any particular order (but, if you are asking, the Parkers Arms is my personal favourite for the hearty homely food and a warm welcome).

Those in red are places that I may have visited but have not blogged or those that come highly recommended and are on my "to do" list. I am aware it's not comprehensive and there are plenty of other good places in the area covered; please let me know of those you think are worth checking out.
