About Us

A quintessential British pub!

The Old Sessions House is decorated in a modern style offering intimate dining areas and relaxed socialising spaces. The ideal place to relax with friends and family.

We are located in the heart of Knutsford in Cheshire.

We offer freshly prepared food, a large selection of wines, lagers and cask ales.

The Old Sessions is run by a team whose focus is on providing professional service in a friendly and welcoming way.


The Old Session House was born in 2012, at which point it underwent a massive renovation.

Prior to 2012 it was called The Red Cow, and held that name for about 150 years.

It was originally built as the Post Chase and has also been called the Brown Cow.

Are you dog friendly?

Yes. Dogs are welcome in the front rooms of the pub, not the restaurant. We ask you keep your dog under control and on a lead at all times.

Can I book for a large party?

We can arrange for large tables or to separate a part of the pub for your event. Please call and ask our team about what we can offer and to discuss your budget.

Do you have any jobs available?

We are always looking for friendly, hard-working people to join our team. Just ask at the bar.

Are children allowed in the bar?

As long as they are supervised.
