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.

The food here is very good - with a wide selection on regular menu and specials board. Service leaves a lot to be desired - two members of the staff who did the actual serving of meals were excellent and worked well despite a very busy lunch-time. However,the whole experience spoiled by the grumpy person who took our orders !... More

Warm and friendly welcome to a traditional British pub. The very reasonable Menu and Special's Board were imaginatively composed and did not disappoint. I chose the Wild Boar and Black Pudding which has to rate as one of the best meals I have ever eaten in a Pub/Restaurant. The choice of meals was amazing and I wish that they could... More

Used to come here regularly twenty five years ago when I was working in Macclesfield. Decided to come and see what it was like a couple of years ago and have been back a dozen or so times since. The food and drink has always been excellent in that time, the staff are friendly and attentive and the location is... More

Friendly, welcoming pub with a lovely open fire. It was a Saturday so it was quite busy but we were directed to an available table which was in the window-lovely. We both had gammon and chips, the gammon was the juiciest I've had for a long time, the excellent beer and lager went down very well too! There were quite... More

Called in here for a quick bite to eat one lunch time. Place was busy, and had a cosy atmosphere, it was so chilly outside, so coming into the warmth and a real fire was lovely! We both had sandwiches and chips and a couple to drink. Sat at the bar with our drinks and it was very relaxed and... More

I love this little pub, everyone is always so pleasant. However the food quality has deteriorated. The steak and ale pie recipe has been changed, which was a big NO NO and it's now a cheap puff pastry dish with chewy steak pieces -not the melt in the mouth beef with a crumbly shortcrust top that it used to be!...

A lovey warm welcoming pub with friendly staff and delicious food! A constant fire on the go and pleasant staff members around at all times complimented by the beautiful scenery! Would certainly recommend this place after a long walk around the Forrest!
