Exciting News for Harthill Cookery School

The Bear & Ragged Staff

Clare West 0 163

We are very excited to announce that our very own Brian will be joining forces with Martin Hilton and local investor, Richard Payne-Gill, to re-open The Bear & Ragged Staff in Tattenhall, which has been derelict for some time and was running the risk of being turned into houses.


It’s the time of year to gather with friends, get social & enjoy some tasty treats. It’s also the ideal opportunity to introduce you to the newest member of the team – Amy Jones.
