Situated in Macclesfield Forest the Leather's Smithy has a great and varied menu. The fish is excellent as is the steak and Kidney Pie with Chips of course. The Billberry or Whinberry, Winberry, Windberry, wimberry crumble is delicious. They get the berries from Marple :) Nice to have a lovely walk bt the reservoir to walk off the pud.

Warm summer evening. Natural to go out in the TR6 for a run into Macclesfield Forest. Ended up at the Leathers Smithy for an evening meal. A really excellent meal of whitebait and calves liver. Friendly and efficient service too. Excellent Leathers Smithy beer as well. All this with wonderful views of the countryside from the window. What could be... More

I stopped off here during one of my regular mountain biking trips round Macc Forest. Decided to order the fish and chips for Sunday lunch, but it was a bad choice. I was unimpressed by the quality of the food (overcooked generic white fish, small in size and with a very small portion of chips.) and it's price (£11.95). This... More

Everyone at Leathers Smithy is so helpful! Always a good range of specials- I'd recommend the rabbit pie. Good range of beer and wine. Only downside is that dogs aren't allowed in but there is seating outside. It's always good to book because it fills up quickly.

Me and my better half live in Sandbach (20 miles away) and travel to the leathers smithy once a month as the food is fantastic, reasonably priced and in a beautiful location with lovely views. We have never once had a bad meal or experience in this pub. The reason it's taken me so long to review is I don't... More

When visiting the area we like to visit this pub. An idyllic location. If you can allow time to walk before or after your meal, so much the better. Menu does have some standard options but the specials board offer some more unusual choices. Staff are very friendly, prices reasonable, portions ample. Advisable to book for evenings.

-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

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.
