Visited the Cocked Hat on Saturday night, and was the last pub before our train back, so memories are a little sketchy. We had a pint of Cheating Rat which was enjoyable. I can't remember what else was available. Was standing room only at the time of our visit.

As previously mentioned, this pub has been taken over by Atwill Pubs and renamed the Cocked Hat. [ All their pubs seem to have “cock” in the title for some reason ]

On entering the pub, the bar is on the left and a lounge on the right. There is comfortable seat in very dark green leather, and cream coloured walls featuring old pirnts of the local area. Also, an internal stained glass window.

The bar features 5 or 6 beers mainly from local breweries. I had the Hornbeam Voyager, which was very nice. There were menus featuring pretty much standard pub grub, but at very reasonable prices. Will definitely eat here next time.

7/10 – worth going back to

Now the "Cocked Hat".

Very good pub with all round appeal ( except to diners), with pleasant furnishings, sport on TV and a good range of beers including a very good Trappers Hat at £2.30 (poss happy hour price). Good contrast to more boisterous Holts and Sams pubs on the square.

This pub has now reopened following a short period of closure, and has been renamed The Cocked Hat. Four cask ales were on offer which were very good - this included the house beer (as brewed by Titanic), Thwaites Wainwrights and Conwy Infusion.
The pub itself is smart yet traditional and was very busy on Saturday when we called. There was also a great range of pies at £2 each. So naturally we had to try them! - and very nice they were too.
This pub is part of a small chain of pubs owned by Atwill Pubs, and faces St Marys church just up from the Marketplace in Stockport.
All in all an excellent addition to the Stockport beer scene and will definitely call again soon.

Further news from planet trainman has been delayed and will now not be calling at this beer festival. Mind the gap.

Friendly and pleasant, if a bit quiet on a Thursday night. Decent small beer range, though low turnover meant quality was average.

Friendly pub very close to the Arden Arms where we had come from. Three hand pumps; Copper Dragon Best & 1816 and Tetley Bitter. Our group noticed the juke box which is the only one spotted pre match. A selection of 70's and 80's tracks were chosen from our group and we stayed in that area. Less notes by this time but remember it being quite open planned. Agree with Trainman that the outside is more impressive than the inside. In fact outside gives an impression of a much older pub than 1931. I think the beer was 2.00 a pint in here, maybe 2.10 the 1816, which was very drinkable.

Tetley Bitter, Copper Dragon Best, & 1816. Scatter of tables & barstools around bar, across an open corridor to two separate small carpetted, fairly unremarkable rooms, albeit both with victorian style fireplaces and one with pool table (covered on Mon). Exterior rather more impressive, architecturally, than the inner, but a jovial welcome at the bar, and the beer is good, also good location near church and indoor market.
