About the Pub

A classic example of a traditional wet-led pub, the Cotton Tree is a welcoming local pub right next to the bus terminus. Under new management of the mother & daughter team, Jayne & Christina Blackshawsince, since May 2015 . The pub was tastefully refurbished in April 2012 but Jayne & Christina have put their stamp on the pub with a collection memorabilia based upon local transport themes of canals (Macclesfield canal is close by), trains (Bollington line was closed by Beeching) and planes (Woodfood aerodrome, home of the Vulcan) – all leading to a very cosy feel complimented by the charms of this stone built pub with roaring fire and stone floor.

The beers are kept in tip top condition with two regular beers and usually three guest beers. Special mention of the Draught Bass which alone merits a visit. No food is served but there are pickled eggs on sale behind the bar plus the usual snacks.

A secluded beer garden is tucked away at the back. Children are most welcome until 7pm when the pub returns to one of a dwindling number of "back-street" boozers with the moniker of "A grown-ups pub in Bollington with no TVs".

Nobody is sure why this pub is called the Cotton Tree although a guess would be a reference to the many cotton mills that put Bollington on the map. No car park but there is on-road parking outside or further up Ingersley Road. Popular and frequent live music. Close to the Gritstone trail which passes higher up the road and the beautiful Ingersley valley nestling in the foothills of the well-known Bollington landmark- White Nancy.

A great pub if you are waiting for the bus to Macclesfield, the 10[A] terminus is right outside the front door.

PS. Coming soon – addition of a small N gauge model railway in the railway section! Still waiting Christina! :-)
