Description: 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.

“Excellent Locally Sourced Food, Cosy Pub with well kept ales”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I wish this place was nearer to where I live, I love this place. Food is allways top notch and very fairly priced. The Spcials board is full of great locally sourced dishes, boar steaks, lamb shanks, Even the Sunday roast is exceptional! I cannot stand eating out and receiving a meal to the standard that i could have done a better job. This is not the case with Leather's Smithy.

“Nice place to relax after a long walk”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

I have visited here many many times over the last how many years.This inn has a fantastic setting with a good selection of beer's with a nice menu for great food. It can get very very busy at weekends so it pays to arrive early if you want one of the best tables. Carol and colleagues are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble .
Well done guys.

“Excellent food in an excellent pub”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We have visited the Leather's Smithy on several occasions now, and have never been disappointed. A lovely atmosphere, a roaring fire, great range of real ales, a warm welcome and an excellent choice of food. The meals are first class, generous portions, very well presented and reasonable prices. The pub was packed and always does well at lunchtimes and weekends. a sure sign of its popularity and its quality. A wonderful pub
