Popped in on for lunch after a walk in the surrounding countryside. The daily specials menu was extensive and all sounded very interesting. We tried the pan friend haunch of venison which was excellent and a couple of pints of the local ale hit the spot. The staff were very friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this pub to... More

Booked a table for an evening meal with family. However were somewhat surprised that we were not shown to our table, just given directions. Nor were we given menus or asked if we would like drinks. In the end we had to go to the bar to place our order for food and drinks ourselves. The meals were overpriced and... More

We enjoyed a very nice lunch after a walk around Macclesfield Forest. The place was very busy for a midweek lunchtime, but service was efficient and the wait wasn't too long. Food was excellent.

We were driving back from the Lake District and wanted somewhere not too far from the M6 to rendezvous with old friends from Sheffield. This was ideal - nice steak sandwich in the garden, fine pint of Deuchars and fast, efficient service.

We visit The Leathers Smithy when we want a good lunch as a treat. Once again we were given a warm welcome when we visited yesterday. The weather was awful but once inside it was warm and comfortable. There is always an interesting Specials Board and the food is freshly prepared to order, well presented and plentiful . Our plates... More

I came here with family after a walk for Sunday lunch - I would recommend booking if visiting at the weekend as it was very busy. Nonetheless, the staff were friendly and the service was prompt. The pub was warm and cosy, which was good as we were cold and wet! The food menu had loads of choice, including a... More

Arrived on a rainy day after a long walk only to be told that they don't allow dogs! We have a well behaved Labrador who has travelled everywhere and been in some top restaurants all over Europe. This scruffy pub is in the middle of nowhere with stone floors. Would not recommend it considering that they call themselves a walkers... More

This is a traditional pub in a lovely waterside setting on the edge of Macclesfield forest. Excellent food is served lunchtime and evening. A standard menu is supplemented by a daily "blackboard" of "specials" which features the best of local produce. The pub have a range of traditional ales including guest beers. In the winter real fires warm the stone floored bar area as well as the more formal dining area of the pub. Very popular and booking is essential at weekends. As residents of the area we aware of what the competition has to offer and feel that Leather's Smithy provides excellent food of consistent quality at a very fair price.
