About the Pub

Reported closed until further notice. (28/12/15) At 1690 feet, England's second highest pub. Built by John Ryle (see Ryle's Arms, Sutton Lane Ends) in the late 18th century. Large lounge and separate, more basic wood-panelled room, with an alpine feel, for muddied walkers & motor cyclists. A welcome sight in the middle of good moorland walking country; the warming wood stove has lifted many a damp spirit. Also popular with motor-cyclists. Separate dining room. Often open all day in Summer. Gets cut off by snow in winter see http://www.maccinfo.com/cat/ for webcam & other info Unusually for a pub in such a remote location there is a bus stop outside the door. Daytime service 58 Macclesfield-Buxton 7 days a week. The guest ale is a Robinsons seasonal.
