user reviews of the Old Ship Inn, Macclesfield

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

The Old Ship was my last stop in Macclesfield, before taking a detour to Liverpool. It has a fairly run-down feel to it, that may be slightly too down the spectrum to be described as characterful. Dogs negotiated, I managed to get to the bar to check out the ale selection. This was Storm Brewing Storm Dexter & Slater's Citrus. I opted for the Storm Dexter, which was decent. Live Premier League football was being shown on a TV at a rather loud volume. There is a smoking area at the rear.

I'd agree with the below, great untouched old school boozer, massive roaring fire, great in winter, usually good ales from Storm on tap.

Surprised to be the first to post on this one, so here goes.

The Old Ship Inn is an attractive looking Tudor roadhouse style of pub with leaded and frosted windows helping give a traditional look to the place. It's situated approx 10 minutes walk from the centre of Macclesfield in a northerly direction, crossing over what appears to be the ring road for through traffic.

The interior consists of a single bar, simply but comfortably furnished with much wood panelling and a separate snooker room at the back. Of particular note is a framed list of pubs in Macclesfield in alphabetical order in the year 1910 which listed approx 140 pubs, but for some reason it only went up to the letter "R", so there were probably 200 plus in total.

There's an outdoor drinking area at the back, part under shelter. Note the mannequin of a sailor on the roof at the back.

Beers on, on my recent early evening visit, were Worthington plus 2 from the local Storm Brewery - Ale Force and Bosley Cloud, both pleasant pints at 2.10p. The presence of additional pumps indicated that the normal range was probably greater than this.The pub is CAMRA friendly and copies of the local branch magazine were available. The pub is listed in the 2010 CAMRA Good Beer Guide and was recently voted Macclesfield and East Cheshire Winter Pub of the Year for 2009.

My knowledge of Macclesfield pubs is virtually negligible, so I don't know how this pub compares with the competition, but I enjoyed the visit and I'd be more than happy to revisit if the opportunity presented itself
