A little history on the pubs name…

The pub was originally named ‘The Elephant and Castle’ in the early 1900′s but was shortened to ‘The Elephant’ in the 1990′s when the pub was extended to almost double its original size. One of the theories given for the name of the pub is that Chester Zoo was created from a small zoo situated right here in the heart of Shavington. The animals were moved from the zoo here in the village when they relocated to chester in 1931. The zoo story is true, but whether it was the reason for the name of our pub, we’ll just have to wonder!
