A hooded man walked into a packed bar and threw paint over unsuspecting staff and customers leaving the punters drenched.
Around 40 people were waiting for a quiz to start when he hurled the emulsion at them on Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, a second man stood outside and threw red paint at the front of the building, before both fled in a red van.
Bar owner Emily Clare posted the footage and photos of the aftermath and clean up on Facebook.
She told the M.E.N : “It all happened so fast, it was over in 30 seconds.
“A red van pulled up outside and two men got out.
“One of them had a tin of red emulsion and threw it all over the front of the building.
“While he was doing that, the other one walked in and launched white gloss all over the bar.
“I was stood there, it went all over me and the customers, everyone was covered in it.
“And that was it, he was gone. Everyone was so shocked – our quiz night was about to start so the bar was packed.
“No one screamed, they just stopped what they were doing, rolled up their sleeves and started helping us to clean.
“People were fetching paint thinner from their cars and others were going to the shop for cleaning stuff. We had most of it cleared up within two hours.”
The 25-year-old said the response from the community has been ‘incredible’.
She added: “People were so helpful, I’ve had so many lovely messages and flowers, local businesses have been offering to help a well. It’s been overwhelming.”
A spokesman for Cheshire Police said around 20 people were left covered in paint.
“We were called at 8.24pm on Tuesday to reports that a man had entered a bar and thrown a tin of paint at customers and staff,” he added.
“We are reviewing CCTV footage and enquiries are ongoing.”
