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.

Arrived on Good Friday morning, quick walk around the reservoir, got back to the pub for 12! Friendly service, lovely and warm and clean, plus the food came out quickly, and it was delicious!

We'll be back!

The pub/restaurant is beautifully located on the lake side near Macclesfield Forest. Snow was on the tops and a few flakes falling when we were there.
The food was good with Whitebait and Pork/Boar with Black Pudding and vegetables my choice. All seven of us enjoyed it with prompt service and a good range of beers and food.

This was our first visit to Leather's Smithy. It was a special occasion - the first time I'd taken my wife out for a meal, following her sustaining a very nasty injury from a fall. We had an instant good feeling about the place, when we we're greeted with a smile from behind the bar. The atmosphere was what you always hope for from a country pub - stone walls with a blazing open fire and friendly, helpful staff. There was an a la carte printed menu and an extensive chalk board menu, leaving you literally spoilt for choice. Good quality home cooked food and plenty of it. All reasonably priced too. I don't know how they cook their chips, but they are to die for! We visited after dark, but the views must be stunning in daylight, as the pub sits on the edge of Macclesfield Forest, right by a reservoir.

Interesting menu that regularly changes around but never fails to deliver in taste and food quality. Great service and a perfect location right on the edge of Macclesfield forest only adds to the experience.
