With a bundle of cham, surreal views and a consistent high standard of service, I always feel relaxed here, maybe it's the open fire, amazing abundance of really excellent dishes based upon locally sourced products and confidence in a brilliant business. Parking is plentiful, and, don't park here if you're simply going a walk in the stunning Forest. The parking... More

We often go to the Leather Smithy, we last went on my birthday. The food was tremendous and the portions of vegetables and potatoes are huge and so fresh! My favourite is the red cabbage! The specials board is always bursting with yummy local additions. The beer and wine is also very good. The log fires make it so cosy... More

Visited Leather's Smithy for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very busy and we hadn't booked ahead but the staff found us a table by asking two lads if they minded moving to a smaller table as that weren't dining. Excellent specials board with good local produce, inc, rabbit & boar. All four of us enjoyed our... More

After a nice long walk round the reservoir, a warm welcome and a pleasant atmosphere were well received. A good pint and healthy large Pinot were followed by a superb lamb shank and nice piece of plaice. A visit to to the Leathers is always a pleasure and we will be back very soon.

In a delightful setting, close to four reservoirs, and beneath the striking hill called Tegg's Nose, this is lovely place to break up a day of walking for lunch. We found staff to be friendly and accommodating. The menu had a good choice. Service was prompt and the food very acceptable. Definitely would go again.

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

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.
