|Great traditional pub and a great start to our Stockport crawl. Plenty of choice of ales at the bar, with stout, porter and pales to choose from. We went for the North Star Porter which was very pleasant and slipped down nicely. We managed to get a seat in what I assume would have been the snug in years gone by.|
Behind the bar there appeared to be a musician doing his thing with a guitar - not sure if this was planned entertainment or impromptu, but looked very relaxed and certainly added to the atmosphere.
Not my round but I don't recall it being particularly expensive. Would definitely recommend.

|I have loved this pub for the last 14 years since I started going in when I used to work in Bredbury. I live in Bolton and visit now every time I go to Stockport, which isn't as often as I'd like. The staff are really friendly, the beer is first class, and if you're lucky, you can even catch some ukulele playing on a Saturday afternoon once a month, some folk on a Sunday and some other live music. A pub that really knows what it's doing and is good at it. My favourite place to be.|

|Stockport’s most famous pub, and justly so. Just before I arrived I received a text from a friend saying how wonderful it had been when he went 36 years ago ! Then it was a Boddingtons pub, but now it is a free house with 16 beers on tap.|
These are immediately on your right as you enter the pub and, handily, are arranged by type. [ i.e. all bitters together, all dark beers together etc ] I started off with the Stockport brewery Stock Porter, which was OK but didn’t really grab my attention. I followed this with the Kingstone Premium Stout which was much mire to my liking.
You can choose to sit in front of the bar, and there is another (small) room to the left, but I chose to sit in the back room. A bit dingy, but wonderfully atmospheric. Walls covered in all sorts of prints and old posters and photographs. Perhaps my favourite was one showing old brewery trucks, including one that was basically an enormous bottle !
Oh, I somehow seem to have forgotten to mention the viaduct outside – it’s enormous !
9/10 – if you don’t like this place, you must have a steel bolt through your head !

|This is a cracking pub with 13 hand pulls along a small bar with 2 T bars for the other stuff.|
2 were not in use but the other 11 were all for ale listed on a board above the bar.
What a great choice they even had something called Briggs Light @ 2.7% for
the lighweights of this world like MillHouse.
I had a very nice pint of Magic Rock Ringmaster for £2.70 served by a very nice young lady.
I was just about to leave when I noticed it was tipping down outside.
O dear I will have to stay and have another pint.
