I have eaten many a meal here and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and very well priced, the staff are some of the nicest, friendliest people I have ever met and the atmosphere, views and walking are all of the highest standard. Highly recommended.

We were greeted by the Landlord and told that the pub closed at 20.00, as it was 18.30 we judged we would be finished by then. The crab cakes starter were obviously bought in and not very tasty. My wife and grandson had fish and chips that were nothing to write home about. My steak and kidney pudding was very... More

Fabulous traditional pub, excellent food, the big steak n kidney pudding is wicked. Ideally located if you're using Macc forest, real fires, pleasant and attentive staff. Choice of ales is good with some staples for the less adventurous, food menu has something for everyone with a good selection of 'specials'.

We visited 25/01/17 for lunch as we have to travel about an hour and a quarter to get to this destination. Lunch excellent I thought they put margarine on the roll, I prefer butter and the chips were slightly cool, that may have been the day in question because it was very cold. I couldn't really fault the food it... More

Wonderful views from this pub, and it is especially wonderful in winter with the real fires going inside! The food is very traditional and consistent, an the beer choice is also good. A really cosy spot and one of our favourites for a Sunday lunch.

Set in the gorgeous surroundings of Macclesfield forest, this pub has a great selection of food and the staff as quick and efficient. Ideal for a little pre-walk meal! Well priced and decent pub grub. Cheers

We go here quite often for lunch as live locally, and never disappointed. The special board always has a large and interesting choice, and good for vegetarians too. Beautiful setting, real fires and lovely staff.

Set on the edge of Macclesfield forest, Leather's Smithy is the perfect spot to have a meal and/or a drink after a walk. It is an old fashioned pub that serves really good local food Recommended

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.
