About the Pub

Re-opened Friday 24th September 2021 after a long closure period.

An untouched, timeless and now rare example of an old-fashioned town pub. On the CAMRA National Inventory of historic pub interiors. Whitened brick, 18th century pub tucked away on a cobbled street. It probably started life as late 18th century cottages which were subsequently remodelled. The quaint exterior belies its inner proportions, which are equally charming. There are leaded lights, moulded plaster ceilings, copper-topped tables, wooden settles, brasses and even a grandmother clock, dotted throughout its warren of little rooms. The star feature, however, is the wonderful hatch bar reminiscent of a traditional, bowed, shop window, full of spirit miniatures and old beer bottles. On the right as you enter is a tiny vault, with a narrow lounge on the left. Past the bar is another lounge or snug on the right, this room has something of a conservatory feel, due to the presence of a glass roof. At the far end is a larger, raised area. Two regular beers, plus one LocAle guest always available. No parking but the main Waters Green public car park is just 100m away. Macclesfield railway and bus stations are both within a few minutes walk. See for other national inventory pubs.
