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.

Wonderful location

On first impressions this restaurant/pub could not be in a better setting, Over looking the reservoir and Macc Forrest.

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.

Had not visited the pub for many years because I have moved away from Cheshire. It was an absolutely great idea to go for lunch on Friday 5th June 2015. The service was first class; lots of different dishes to choose from and the service was very good. The location, on the edge of the Macclesfield Forest, is very attractive... More

We were shown immediately to our tables, the bar staff were most accommodating in taking photos for us , the first opportunity of a reunion weekend for all of us to be "in the pic" We were served drinks and lunch selections were taken with...

We have been here a number of times over the years for drinks and meals, food has always been good and plentiful apart from the last meal we had, a sunday roast, very average. The pub is in a superb spot, quiet with good views, usually very busy at weekends most of the year, we normally go midweek and in... More

After a lovely walk round Macc Forest I called in for a beer to be greeted by the grumpiest woman behind the bar. I only had £4 change in my pocket and had to ask how much a beer was. No banter, no welcoming smile, miserable beyond believe! I would return because it's at the end of some lovely walks... More

Nipped up here after work for a quick bite for lunch. Always found the service good, and the staff friendly. The pub was a little cold, despite the nice weather outside. I had the fishcakes off the specials board, with a sweet chilli sauce, chips and salad. was very tasty and just the right portion size for lunch. The menu... More

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
