Beer fantastic; food limited and overpriced

The best pint in Bollington but wouldn't bother with the food. A pity, as it seems to have been got up as a restaurant with many tables reserved. Also very noisy owing to lack of soundproofing (i.e. no carpet)

I came to the Vale inn on a warm summer afternoon. I'm regular here and the restaurant was mildly busy with seven waiting to be served at the bar. When it came to my turn the proprietor decided not to serve me in favour of someone who just walked in. The restaurant is smart but basic with a traditional pub... More

Thank you for the review and the compliment on the beer. You didn't say whether you tried the food but we are certainly not trying to be a restaurant, our aim is to be a brewery tap for our beer with complimentary food. We run a menu which covers a good range of items and is within the capability of... More

My boyfriend goes here a couple of times a month with his friend as they both love craft beers and the beers that the Bollington brewery make. I went there for the 1st time last month after an event I had ran in the village. It has a nice atmosphere and the bar staff were lovely. They have great range... More

Great friendly town pub. Superb local beers and a good atmosphere. For light citrusy ale try 'Waterloo', for darker beer drink 'Dinner Ale'. Brewery visits, good food.

I went to visit a friend who lives in Bollington tonight, we were both hungry and not great cooks, so we decided to have dinner at The Vale Inn. The location is warm and welcoming, we grabbed a seat, one of the last table available. The staff is young, friendly and efficient, so we managed to get a pint of... More

The vale inn is a lovely place, food severed, plenty of good beer, excellent beer garden views of the bollingtons wreck and cricket club, a delightful place to be in the summer.

Firstly, having always enjoyed a nice glass of wine from this pub whilst watching the cricket in the summer we all thought great idea to try to the food! So having booked well in advance we arrived for the staff to promptly tell us there would be a slight delay with service. After waiting over 60 minutes from ordering the... More
