My father-in-law took me here on a trip to England for a wedding. He said he can't go home with out a stop at Leather's. Now I know why. It was a great little pub out of the way. Good beer selection. I loved the scenery. The Guinness stew pie was absolutely awesome. Good selection for beer. The prices were... More

The food here is always delicious. Many choices and an extensive 'Specials' board. In good weather you can sit outside and bring your dog.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch with our young son after rambling in nearby Tegg's Nose country park. We ate in the beer garden which offers great views of the nearby countryside. The food for my son was very good, home made fish and chips which he really enjoyed. The problem was that my wife and I ordered... More

Really disappointed with this pub. I am local to macclesfield and it used to be great place to stop in after a walk around the forest or even for a trip up for a casual dinner. Recently the service has deteriorated and you are made to feel like you are nothing but an inconvenience! No matter how nice a location... More

I've been here a number of times, and have always enjoyed the food, but have never felt particularly welcome. This time the chips were greasy, the welcome lukewarm, and there were no baby changing facilities. I was advised to change my daughter's nappy under the sink in the ladies loo. Not impressed!

I have been here about three times now and have to say it ranks high on my favorite places to go. The leather's smithy is the perfect end after a lovely walk. The staff are always welcoming and the specials menu has always had something new and imaginative on it each time I have been and when served it does... More
