The Rams Head is a pub/restaurant situated right in the centre of Disley. It belongs to a chain called Vintage Inns.
The food and service we have always found to be very good.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish is the Hunters Chicken. Two chicken breasts with a BBQ sauce, cheesey mashed potatoes and vegetables.
Followed by a few glasses of white wine :-)
For a starter and main course the average price is approximately £12.00.
Disley is only a small place but there are a few shops there. Also of course at the Hall there is a shop selling National Trust
merchandise and also at the Old Workshop.
This is a building in Disley which I liked.
There are reported to be two ghosts at Lyme Hall.
The first is of a 'lady in white' which has been seen inside and outside the hall. She had supposedly been the mistress of Sir Piers Legh who died in Paris in 1422 after fighting in the Battle of Meux.
The second ghost is that of a priest whose skeletal remains were found under the floor boards of a secret room. When this ghost has been seen there is also heard the sound of bells.
It was also in this room where his remains were found that Mary, Queen of Scots slept whilst imprisoned at Lyme Hall.
This is the courtyard.
