Very good pub next to the station. It has lots of separate drinking areas, making for an intimate experience. The barmaid offered a sample before buying. 4 regular ales were supplemented by 4 guests plus a cider. Ales last night were Joules Pale Ale & Blonde, Greene King Abbot, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Bass, Wincle Sir Philip & Wilson Potter Second Skin-Ful. Cider was Old Rosie. There is also a large garden next to the car park. Marginally my favourite of the 7 pubs I tried in Congleton yesterday.

Very lively when i visited, mind you it was a Friday night. A pretty standard boozer that had a fair range of ale on offer. Tried one from a local microbrewery (name escapes me!) and it was pretty good and cheap enough.

Does B&B and most importantly right across from the train station, so very useful when you've had a few. Worth a quick visit.

Pleasant pub just over the road from the station. Range of beers including nice pint of Titanic mild. Still has a separate public bar with pool table so facilities for a range of customers. A good effort.

Visited when passing by boat. Steep steps up from 'the cut' but worth the climb to find 10 ales on. Most were sampled by our crew & all were in excellent condition. Friendly staff. Decor dated.

The pub has a couple of rooms for let if you are staying overnight (Congleton is just about half way between Glasgow and London). Fine selection of beers, although the bar is a little on the small size and the decoration has seen better days; nevertheless, a spot-on pint, friendly staff and well worth searching out.

Visited last week and found it strangely depressing! Reasonable beer but not a lot of atmosphere...kept looking for John Cleese but he failed to appear! Probably won't return unless I'm on a boating trip.

Visited in the evening whilst passing through Congleton by boat, a friendly traditional pub with a good selection of well kept beers convenient for the station as well as the canal. Landlord took the trouble to get a torch and show us back down the steep steps to our boat in the dark.

Comments by Jimbo are noted. However a full refurbishment commenced a couple of weeks after his visit. The pub is now clean and bright, while still retaining it's charm and individuality. The loos are spotless and have no "pong". There are 7 real ales on, and a good selection of lagers. The home-cooked food is out of this world! The pub is aparantly known to regulars as Fawlty Towers due to the zany landlord Tony's uncanny resemblence to John Cleese! Well worth more than a passing visit.

A wierd one this. In a dip off the main road opposite the station. The gardens are lovely and obviously had a lot spent on them. However, the pub is a bit shabby. Wallpare peeling off, bogs stink etc. Howevere the beer was excellent and the landlord and locals really friendly.
Voted 9 on beer and friendliness.
