About the Pub

Re-opened in September 2016 as the "Stitching Pony" after a £700,000 refurbishment by Amber Taverns and named after the Stitching Pony which was a device once used by the local footwear industry. Originally called the Gaiety, it was subsequently named Watercress Harry's, then Mannies, before reverting to Watercress Harry's, named after a regular visitor. The long bar leads to a number of rooms at the back with comfy chairs and wooden seats with high stools at the bar. The local footwear industry is featured as part of the interior furnishing and decorations. The booth seating areas have plugs and USB sockets for those that need it. A number of TVs are spread around the pub and there is a garden outside but there's no escape from the TV there! There are three handpumps on the bar dispensing national beers. Staff are very friendly and helpful. No food and comes to life in the evenings when it can be very busy.
