By: Jenny Schippers
Myself and Jenny have been on a mission to seek out as many brunches as we could find across Cheshire. From family brunches to healthy brunches and even managed to find some bottomless brunches for those looking for a bit of party with their eggs. We have gathered and reviewed as many as possible in the time we had and I am sure there are many more amazing places to try! We hope this list will give you some insight into what is on offer so you can brunch local. We would like to encourage you to share this with friends and if any of these places tickle your Ginger and Pickle make sure you check out our shop local directory for more details. 
The Terrace, Lymm
Tucked away just off the main high street in the quaint village of Lymm, The Terrace, is a favourite brunch spot for locals and visitors alike. The perfect place to refuel after a walk around Lymm Dam or along the Bridgewater Canal, The Terrace prides itself on freshly preparing its dishes using the finest local ingredients. With the sourdough supplied by Sextons of Lymm, the meat from The Village Butcher in Partington and the eggs from Dunham Massey. Fully licenced and open Monday to Thursday for breakfast from 8am, through until 4pm serving Brunch and Lunch, staying opening for evening drinks and platters on a Friday and Saturday evenings until 10.30pm.
