The Wharf is a short walk uphill from the town centre, a stones throw from the converted Hovis Mill and worth the jaunt. The beer here is well kept and if you enjoy real ale you'll be well served. The pub is filled with artefacts...More

Very nice place to have a chat , to read some book and of course to grab some real ale. Taps are changed quite often.

A proper old fashioned boozer with well kept cask beers and friendly staff and customers. One little grumble, it would be good to have a cask beer with a higher ABV available please.

Great local pub. Excellent choice of cask ales and wood burning stove which added to the cosy, welcoming atmosphere. Friendly, helpful bar staff. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

A really good old fashioned pub with a log burner, bar games and regular live music. The beer selection is great with lots of cask ales. Overall a very cosy and welcoming pub and will definitely return.

Well kitted out, great selection of drinks, live music, nice people... what more could you ask for? There are not many "proper back street boozers" left in macclesfield so this is a must visit for those that like that environment.

The pub is fairly old fashion these days as the decor is dated. The pub provides real ale which isn't too bad as I prefer real ale. The choice can be hit or miss though as I prefer the non hoppy variety preferring darker ales....More

Brilliant beer (best in town), great atmosphere and 'real' pub. There is always a great selection of ales in offer and all well priced. Live entertainment at the weekend also add a little extra

Use this pub occasionally - there's always a decent selection of ales plus quality lagers. No hassle, music Friday nights and footy at the weekend. A more mature, good natured crowd; loads better than most of the other pubs found on Buxton Road or Hurdsfield...More

Visited many times - an excellent family (& dog) friendly free-house - always made very welcome by the landlord (Chris) and his excellent staff. Offers excellent (free) music acts by talented musicians most Fridays (and some Saturdays) - worth catching if you can Definitely recommended...More
