About the Pub

Located opposite the local church this is the only pub in the village, and an excellent one at that! The Davenport Arms was acquired by Robinson’s in the 1920s, and since then the licence has been held by four successive generations of the Hallworth family, a record of continuity which is unique in the Stockport area. Sited next to a real farm, it is constructed of mellow red brick and has the aspect of an old-fashioned Cheshire farmhouse with a number of outbuildings. It is better known to many by its previous name the “Thief’s Neck”, see the inn sign for the villain’s unfortunate fate. Inside the pub has retained a multi-room layout with a simply furnished tap room to your left as you enter and a cosy snug to the right with a collection of plates and water jugs on a high shelf round the room. Located behind the front entrance is the bar where the vertical drinkers are to be found. There is a small lounge area to the right; a wooden aircraft propeller suspended from the archway leading to it is a reminder of Woodford’s long association with aircraft manufacturing. The former BAE Systems factory down the road was where the Nimrod patrol aircraft was made, but in the past when it was Avro, it produced the famous Lancaster and Vulcan bombers. Each of the three rooms has a welcoming real fire in winter. Food is served at lunchtimes 11.30-2.30 (3pm Sat/Sun), and evening meals 5.30-7.30 Fri-Sat. At the front of the pub is some bench seating where you can admire the floral displays in season. Note the model of the pub on the wall to the right and the small bench seats built into both sides of the front entrance. There is even more outdoor seating to the rear where there is also a children’s play area with views of the adjacent fields, the local cricket pitch, and livestock. The toilets are located in an outbuilding across the yard from the lounge, accessed by a covered walkway. The pub is a former holder of CAMRA’s Greater Manchester Pub of the Year title and in 2016 celebrated thirty consecutive years in CAMRA’s national Good Beer Guide. The pub has a large car park, but if you want to leave the car at home, the pub is served by a regular bus service. Don’t worry if you miss the stop for the pub, as all buses turn round just after it. A truly classic pub and one definitely not to be missed.
