Cosy little bar in the underbank district of Stockport! It feels like you are going back in time a bit! There are various rooms and snugs! Range of beers not brilliant but would recommend for a pint!

Limited range of beers but what they have is good. No comfy seating this is for serious drinkers! If you like Sam Smiths Ales this place is for you.

Good beer at favourable prices. There does seem to be favouritism towards intimidating regulars which made my stay shorter than I would have liked!

Cracking pub with stacks of character. Lovely beer and great value prices, friendly staff, nice bar area with little sub sections and a really cosy back room. One fantastic curiosity is the tiny toilet. It's not in use but the bar man is more than...More
