About the Pub

This is a family-run, award-winning establishment that focuses on quality and choice. Boasting fourteen handpumps for beer, complemented by up to twelve craft keg beers, and a large foreign bottled range. Digital beer boards display all current beers on sale. It has a bustling vault to the left, leading to a lower pool room (where you can view the micro-brewery), and a series of rooms separated by arched 'magnet' doorways on the right. An extensive outdoor area, part-covered, part open, allows drinkers to marvel at Stockport's historic railway viaduct. The twin-storey beer terrace and function room are well used and popular. The upstairs room opens at busy times and weekends; a pizza vendor operates every Friday evening from 5.30pm. The in-house microbrewery produces seasonal ales, it opened on 14/11/14 to coincide with the pub's fifth birthday since re-opening as a free-house. History: within 22 months of being rescued from failure, the rejuvenated Magnet won acclaim as both CAMRA Regional and Branch Pub of the Year for the years 2011, 2015, and 2020.
