Popped in for lunch after a walk around Macclesfield Forest. Surprisingly busy for a Wednesday lunchtime, we were still served immediately, with the lady behind the bar taking our order, saving us a table and adjusting my meal to take into account my wheat allergy....More

I felt duty bound to respond to this review if only to correct and directly challenge some of the comments you have made. Quite frankly the suggestion that the service we offer is the worst anyone will experience is patently ridiculous. On an average week...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. With a specialist chef on board we have become noted for the quality and range of our vegetarian and vegan options. We have also introduced family friendly childrens' and pizza menus both offering real value for money. The pub has 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. We do not allow dogs in any part of the pub. Except guide dogs.
