About the Pub

This Victorian pub was refitted in the 1920s and remains largely intact since then, with a host of original fittings and evidence of ownership by the old Bell’s Brewery still evident in the interior glasswork. There really is a room for everyone in this pub - there is a bright, brassy lounge, drinking lobby, complete with its own bar counter, a darts room at the back and an excellent traditional vault, arguably one of the best in town. The sense of tradition is heightened by the frequent sight of a cask of the powerful Old Tom on the bar counter. The lounge walls feature memorabilia of the Cheshire Regiment. Convenient for Edgeley Park football ground with bar food often available when Stockport County are at home (and pub will open 30 mins earlier too). Outside at the back is a good, secluded beer garden, which can be quite a suntrap in the summer months. The Armoury has a more mature clientele, with a strong community involvement, and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Darts are very much a feature here; nine teams play here often with two leagues playing the same night. A Social Club organises outings, party nights, artist nights and a Christmas outing for the pensioners amongst the events. The upstairs room sometimes hosts live music sessions. The commitment to quality shines through in every aspect of the operation here. Its success gives the lie to those pub pundits who say this type of pub has no future. Stockport CAMRA branch Pub of the Year runner-up in 2007.
