    I've not managed to get out a lot recently and after taking the car to Kwick Fit for the second time this week I decided I needed something to do, the Raven is fairly local to me but I only found out it was empty recently. The pub is nothing special and most of it has been vandalised by the local Winford youth, but it was nice to have a look around and I can never say no to a pub. ;)

    History
    The name Raven comes from the Corbett family, long time residents of Darnhall Hall and upon whose family crest was a raven. The hall was sold to the Verdin family in the late 1800s and was demolished around 1950. The pub is believed to be one of the oldest in Vale Royal. It used to be a gamekeeper’s cottage but was mentioned as an alehouse in Weaver Township, an older name for Darnhall, in 1631.

    The licensee on this date was John Robinson and in those long gone days the customer base would have been the surrounding farms and travellers on the ancient Over to Nantwich Road. In 2009 plans were made to turn the premises into an Indian Restaurant but these plans were never realised and this once thriving pub continues to decline.
