About the Pub

As of 17/8/18 a Planning Application ref DC/070502 has been submitted for the conversion of this existing pub into 15 room House in Multiple Occupation with shared facilities - http://planning.stockport.gov.uk/PlanningData-live/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=PCQAN8PJLA600. Closed 1/6/17 and for sale at c.£260,000 for probable non-pub use. Re-opened on 12/12/14 after almost a year of closure, when it was thought it would never re-open. It has gone from strength to strength majoring on quality cask ales and good home-cooked food (served daily 12-4) - both much appreciated by the occupants of Stockport’s landmark blue pyramid that dwarfs the nearby pub. While there has been some opening out, the Woolpack still retains much of the original layout of front and rear lounges, drinking lobby and well-used vault. In former landlord Bob Dickinson’s day, the history of consistent excellence was marked by a clutch of CAMRA awards adorning the walls, from Pub of the Month, to Pub of the Year, local and regional. It is a handy starting point for a walk along the Mersey. Please note the pub may close early on Mon and Tues. HISTORY: in the late 1980s, the Woolpack seemed destined for permanent closure. It started life as an old Greenall's pub called the Hague, and after a later stint as a failed free-house, closed down. Luckily the pub was taken over by Bob Dickinson who set about restoring its fortunes. Sadly Bob passed away and things once again looked bad for the place. A few up-and-down years followed, then it closed. After a year of closure in 2009, the pub was rescued in late 2010 by entrepreneur, Mike Quinn who has based his other business there, the Natural Cider Company. It is sad to note that Mike passed away in a tragic accident in April 2013, but the pub stayed in the safe hands of his family, and he would have been heartened to see the business a success.
