A great pub that is doing it's utmost to put real ale back on the agenda. They have the most awesome pizzas on offer too, along with an eclectic selection of music. But kids running riot after 22:30...really?

We been here several times for drinks & to watch the odd football game. However they serve fresh, authentic hand made pizza`s too & have just introduced a new menu! What can I say. The best pizza in town!! Don`t take my word for it try it for yourself!

Local pub, great beer, great pizza. Cash only. The pizzas are like a new york style neopolitan, really thin and a bit crispy. Not overloaded with topping so you can still taste the dough.

Great pub, nothing fancy decor wise but really friendly staff, good choice of ales, real fires in winter, great views over Greenfield and Mossley towards the beautiful Chew Valley if you sit outside in the summer, dog friendly and the most AMAZING pizza.

Proper working town pub. Nothing fancy but just a general good buzz around the place. Many local "Real Ales" on offer as well as a few well known Draught Beers. We had Pizza there & enjoyed it. Beer & food prices are good. Bottom line, old, nothing fancy but still nice.

Excellent selection of well kept craft ales in a comfortable friendly pub. The view from the balcony at the front of the pub, albeit across Stockport Road, is fantastic.
