|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.

|A decent traditional pub with 12 casks. Worth the walk from Stockport station.|

|I moved out of the area several years ago, and this pub is the main reason I return to Stockport so frequently. In my experience, one of the very best pubs anywhere.|

|A fantastic proper pub. Had visited years ago but made much greater impression today. Incredibly friendly , lovely multiromm pub with impressive beer range. Not the best beer in Stockport but the best pub.|
