user reviews of the Railway View, Macclesfield

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Set back from the main road that runs from the football ground back towards town is this small Marston’s run pub. It appeared to be under new management on this visit with the bar maid / manager who was very friendly getting to grips with the pub and it’s very few locals.

No cask ale with only Marston's Pedigree on keg, not being a fun of older style keg it was a decent drop.

Very dark inside with a low ceiling and very low lighting, the walls are painted white artex and the floor is stone. At the far end of the bar is a pool table and then a door that leads to the small but perfectly neat garden to the rear that is fitted out like a train station platform.

Pub was okay, the garden was very decent but the clientele which was made up of 20 year old junior football thugs was very poor, still they didn’t pose my pal and I any problems so I have nothing to moan about.

6/10 but that’s mainly for the friendly welcome and the garden.

Agree with the last comment apart from the last bit the pub was empty from 1.30 until 2.50 when i was here for the Macclesfield Daggers game, Beer range was excellent, with simple pub snacks hot dogs and pies and live football on the box. The landlord was welcoming and the youngish chap working behind the bar. Highly Recommend this pub.

Great pub near Moss Rose (Macclesfield Town FC). Interesting selection of ales, barbecue on matchdays, friendly staff. Can get packed when the Silkmen are at home. Recommended!

Really busy pub on matchdays. After struggling to get through the door, we were served fairly quickly and even managed to find a seat. There were 5-6 real ales on offer including Titanic Iceberg. Friendly enough pub - just a bit too packed. Also serves real cider (Weston's Old Rosie).

Friendly, well run pub with well trained staff.

Usually at least 4 or 5 real ales available.
