It was one of the best meals I have ever had! The roast beef was succulent and tender and everything else on the plate was delicious, the girls both had gammon, the only complaint was that it was too big! The wine was perfect and the beer is the best you can get. It's not even expensive and it's right... More

Visited mid week when eating on my own. Great range of beers, with great barman happy to let you sample before making my choice. Then for food the menu offered a great choice and with specials available off the black board I took my time before deciding, and was not disappointed with the Mac&Cheese! Staff we very attentive and friendly,... More

The best pub in Bollington, amazing food complimented by beer they brew themselves... to top it off they have a great friendly landlord, fab staff and if the weather is fine the newly refurbished beer garden overlooks the park which is perfect for people watching… can you tell that we frequent this great pub on a regulars basis?!

A great little pub with a good selection of ales and other drinks. Food was very good (although I was jealous of the special that a few on our table had, compared to the special I was a little disappointed with my pie...) Staff were very attentive, making sure our large group was looked after. Although it was busy and... More

This is a traditional English pub with beer and pies. There are no high chairs and no changing facilities so it is clear that young children are not welcome. It is ideal for young men with occasional couples. The food is fine but the service is so slow you can't really appreciate it. Not one to return to with children.

How nice is it to find a micro-brewer who produces good quality, naturally conditioned, ales and manages to sell them, bottled, in exactly the same condition. Nice, pint, nice pub with basic pub fare and a lovely patio overlooking the cricket ground. Couldn't be nicer on a summers evening.

Love, love, love this place. We live in Bollington and this is our favourite pub. The Vale has it all - its own brewery with many award winning pints, a cosy atmosphere inside, the best beer garden in Bollington with a great view of the Rec and a cricket match if you're lucky, and tasty, freshly cooked reasonably priced pub...

The food was delicious and the staff were friendly. Great service. Dog friendly. Cozy atmosphere. All I would say is a little small. Overall a brilliant pub for all people

Had an excellent lunch, fab home cooked food, using local produce. The steak pies and steak and kidney puddings we had were fantastic. Excellent beers on offer. Great friendly staff. Quick service considering it was so busy. Excellent value for money, will be returning soon.
