-This amazing little pub is really hard to beat. Me and the family are regulars and the pub never fails to surpass our expectations. The menu is always lively and interesting - some of us are veggies and this is one of the few pubs in the area that really goes the distance to provide variety and choice for all... More

We just get SO frustrated with this pub - it's in a gorgeous spot, where the sun shines gorgeously over a beautiful view, but, i just doesn't 'gel' with where it is! We come for walks here ALL the time, with our dogs. We VERY often would love to come for a drink or food after or before the walk... More

Called at the Smithy after a long absence from us to see if the Smithy was still serving good food and to our delight it was. We were a party of four and each had something different from the menu, we were all highly satisfied with not only the quality of the food but the value for money and after... More

Somewhere different to go with good scenery around. Great friendly staff and would recommend to anyone, but advise booking as is a small country pub and in a walking area.

If you want quality food, this place to go.The fresh fish is beautifully cooked(my favourite) but if fish is not your thing,then there is the special's board with a excellent variety to choose from. To top it all off,the view from the pub are spectacular and the staff are very attentive.

We visited Leather's Smithy for Sunday lunch with friends and had a very pleasant time. I enjoyed the Pate as a starter and my main meal of Gammon was done very well, with the Sticky Toffee Pudding for desert (well what else...it's the law). The Smithy, is not the easiest place to find but was quite busy all the time,... 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.
