We were given a table next to the window which was lovely looking out towards the reservoir. It was very busy but we were served quickly. The specials board was amazing. Along with the normal menu you couldn't fail to be in a dilemma as to what to have. The food was fresh and well cooked, the service was great... More

We decided to visit the Leather Smithy after going for a lovely Sunday walk around Macclesfield Forrest. We decided to pop in at around 12.30 and were a bit apprehensive as we didn't think we'd get a table, as we hadn't booked. However the lady behind the bar managed to get us a table and we order our food and... More

Very nice pub, busy on Sunday. Food reasonably priced. Good selection of real ale kept well. Would recommend it if you're up that neck of the woods.

Been coming to the Leather Smithy for over twenty years, after work or a bike ride or a walk, on my own or in a group, and can safely say I've not had a bad experience yet. Always loved the location, positive ambience and welcoming people. Hopefully I will be calling in for another twenty years!!!

Long waits to be served food and drinks. Food nothing special, won't go again. Good views though and a handy position if you're out for a walk.

Super place. Location second to none on the side of a reservoir, where you can sit outside and just enjoy being in the countryside. Rear beer garden has great views of tegsnose and a reasonable sunset. Beer is always well-kept. Always. Menu is interesting - there's always something that appeals, and food is to a very high standard whilst still... More

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.
