I went in mid week, with my mum we had a good meal quite simple but full of flavours, service was quick and presentation was good. Unfortunately my biggest disappointment was dogs aren’t allowed anywhere in the pub. I understand you serve food and that...More

We were very impressed by the vegan options available and the staff’s knowledge on the subject. The lentil burger and nut roast were superb with lovely thick cut chips. A great lunch out around Christmas time at the finish of our walking route.

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.
