Robinsons Brewery

About the Pub

This excellent market pub has a unique atmosphere being both cosy and relaxed yet lively and vibrant. Reinvigorated by a thorough refurbishment in mid-2014 by the pub-trio of Jonny Booth, Jamie Langrish and Rupert Hill, who also run pubs in Manchester’s Northern Quarter pubs Gullivers, and Castle, the Eagle Inn in Salford, and, historically, the Parlour in Chorlton. Although merely a single, large room, it is an architecturally impressive space. This Grade II listed building (originally styled as the George and Dragon) and was built around 1775 on the foundations of the old Stockport castle. The original building, demolished in the late 19th century, was renamed the Bakers Vaults and rebuilt in the ‘gin palace’ style. The bohemian feel is enhanced by high ceilings and feature arch windows, the general decor, decorated in a grey and dark blue colour scheme, with the central bar towards the back of the building giving the building a spaciousness it once lacked. Behind that bar is a small lounge-type area with low leather sofas for those who wish to escape the bustle of the main area. It is one of the very few Robinsons houses to serve guest ales (these being supplied through Titanic Brewery of Burslem). The guest beers tend to include a dark ale; a strong IPA; and a pale session beer. The cider is Westons Old Rosie. Live music Jazz / Blues plays on Sundays 3-6, and occasional Thursdays 8-11. NB a dress code applies: no jogging bottoms or sportswear (any sport). Dogs and children: both are allowed, inside and outside, the latter until 9pm.
