See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The existing building was built in 1893, and is listed as being of architectural and historical importance to the village. There has been an inn or hotel on the same site for much longer and the village of Grappenhall itself is recorded as far back as the Domesday Book of 1086. The image of a grinning cat carved into the tower on St. Wilfrid’s Church is believed to be the inspiration for Lewis Caroll’s Cheshire cat in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. One of the many unique features of The Rams Head Inn is the original village well, situated near the bar. The well actually pre-dates the existing building at about 150 years old, but is now fitted with walkover glass and illuminated from the inside.
