Please could anyone help with info regarding my grandparents restaurant which was somewhere in Mollington/Backford up until about 1964 when it was demolished I believe. I think it was on a busy roundabout somewhere and used to host lots of coach parties.Any memories, anyone? Thanks

If my memory serves me right, it was on the A517 (Backford to Shotwick road) near the roundabout where the A540 (Chester High Road) crosses. On LH side heading towards Shotwick. There's a filling station (if it's still there)almost on the same spot now.

Maybe someone else can verify ??

the coq dor was a hotel on the A41 on the roundabout just past the garden centre on the right hand side on way to chester - backford border , it was demolished mid sixties . And a very smart woman started to build a new hotel on the same site , it was halted because she had money troubles , in fact she had none.

Solvas, you're right. I remember that concrete building, it was started but never finished.

The coq d'or was at the junction of A41 and A5117. I fell asleep after a "heavy lunch" in a lecture there in the mid 1960's.

I think there was a change of ownership and it was then called The Mercury inn before it closed and was then demolised.
