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.

We've eaten here 3 times now in the last month and its a really fantastic place. Lots of choice of drinks and the food menu has loads to choose from. Every meal we've had has been absolutely spot on. My 6 year old son had the pheasant yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Cant recommend it highly enough.

This is an excellent country pub which serves fantastic food. We visit here every few weeks. The choice of food from the special board is great. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. There are some great walks from the pub and beautiful views. I can't recommend this pub enough. It must be one of the best pubs around.

Just back from a great Sunday lunch at the Leathers Smithy. My partner & I live around 15 minutes away in Alderley Edge but we visit here every couple of weeks as it's the best 'proper' pub around. I'm veggie and they serve a great selection of dishes which vary each time I visit. My other half eats meat and... More

This is a 'proper' country pub with good beer, pleasant atmosphere and a range of tasty dishes to tempt you. We visit regularly as part of a group and always have had nice food pleasantly served. Not fine dining, but good pub grub.
