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. A family run pub since 2015 with a collection of memorabilia based on local transport themes, including canals (Macclesfield canal is close by), trains (Bollington line was closed by Beeching) and planes (Woodford aerodrome, home of the Vulcan) leading to a very cosy feel complimented by the charms of this stone built pub with roaring fire and stone floor.

The reasonably priced beers are kept in tip top condition with four regular beers and one guest beer. The regular Draught Bass alone merits a visit. An Easter beer festival has recently been established. No food is served but there are pickled eggs on sale behind the bar plus the usual snacks. The pub only accepts cash and does not possess a card machine.

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 a team in the local dominoes league.

Nobody is sure why the pub is called the Cotton Tree although it is probably a reference to the many cotton mills that contribute so much to Bollington’s history. No car park but there is on-road parking outside or further up Ingersley Road. The frequent live music events are very popular. 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 recent CAMRA Pub of the Season and winner of the Punch Regional Pub of the Year in 2016, this is a great pub if you are waiting for the bus to Macclesfield, the 10[A] terminus is right outside the front door.
