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.

Ideal Setting.

A very welcome feel to this Pub /restaurant situated in beautiful scenery. This is a Ramblers paradise although I am not one of them. Busy at weekends which you would expect. Food comes in generous portions and with a good variety. Well worth a visit.

Beautifully located pub. Arrived for lunch mid week expecting it to be modestly busy , but took the last place in the car park. Flagged bar area and carpeted lounge both with plenty of room. Decent pint and good food at great value prices . My wife hasn't stopped going on about the liver and onions . On the edge... More

I used to live in Macclesfield and the Leather's Smithy was my favourite dog walking and eating (and drinking) spot. It was so nice to experience once again superb food and an ambiance I surely miss. The place was packed out, great sunny day. So glad I took the trouble to call in, It's a long way to visit from... More

After a dog walk I'm the Macclesfield Forrest we came across this pub with great reputation and reviews. We were not impressed the pub was freezing inside the welcome was non existent and just under not competitive prices for drink. The pub is not dog friendly as stated in a previous review

One can build up a good appetite waking the nearby hills. What better way then eating a hearty meal after this toil? Being the only eatery this pub could serve standard warmed up meals but instead it delivers very good and interesting food. Go walk and go eat. You won't be disappointed.

Visited after walk round forest and reservoirs. Lovely atmosphere, great 'sunny' service, good home cooked food, excellent choice of menu to suit all. Shame no rooms or would have been perfect for overnight stay.

We stopped here for lunch mod way in a walk round Macc Forest. We sat at a table outside and the service and food were excellent. The food took a bit of time to arrive but that's because it was being freshly prepared and was well worth the wait.

On first impressions this restaurant/pub could not be in a better setting, Over looking the reservoir and Macc Forrest. The layout inside is typically iggledy piggledy as you come to expect from country pubs which adds to their charm. The menu especially on the board was very good. I had the Wild Boar Wellington which was very nice although slightly... More

The location is amazing, a nice place to go for a pub lunch then go for a walk around Macclesfield forest. I ordered the sea bass which was the special and it had so many bones inside, it really wasn't enjoyable to eat.
